Health Economics Manager (Oncology)

Market Access

At AstraZeneca, we're not afraid to do things differently. We're resetting expectations of what a bio-pharmaceutical company can be. This means we're opening up new ways to work, pioneering cutting edge methods and bringing unexpected teams together.

This is an exciting opportunity to join the Market Access team to support our dynamic and highly successful Oncology business unit. As Health Economics Manager, you'll play a pivotal role in channelling our scientific capabilities to make a positive impact on changing patients' lives.

We are committed to advancing the science of oncology to deliver life-changing medicines to people most in need. Our broad pipeline of next-generation medicines is focused on four main disease areas: breast, ovarian, lung and haematological cancers, using four key scientific approaches: immunotherapy, tumour drivers and resistance mechanisms, DNA damage response, and antibody-drug conjugates.

Our ambition is to eliminate cancer as a cause of death through scientific discovery and collaborations.

 

Main Duties And Responsibilities:

The Health Economics Manager (Oncology) will work in conjunction with the global HEOR function to shape the development of cost utility analysis models, systematic literature reviews, network meta analyses and other payer-related materials for HTA. You will also provide strategic input into pricing strategy and evidence needs.

In addition you will tailor the final deliverables to meet UK HTA needs, via a "hands on" approach and you will write the cost-effectiveness section for submissions to NICE, SMC and AWMSG, working collaboratively with your UK Market Access colleagues and the Medical team.

You will also represent AstraZeneca at appraisal committee meetings and within cross functional teams you will contribute to the strategic and operational planning processes.
