However, there is also a hands-on, strategic approach expected from you as part of this role. 

If you're someone who is passionate about the science behind a product, this company will be of interest to you as they are working with a platform technology that is incredibly innovative and is viewed to be the next big thing in the oncology world since monoclonal antibodies. 

This a great time to join the business as they are going through a period of growth at the moment and so you will not only be involved in the development of the pharmacology department, you will also have the opportunity to influence the evolution of the business moving forward thereby giving you career prospects which you may not get at larger, pharmaceutical companies. 

For this position, the client are looking for someone who has dedicated clinical pharmacology experience ideally within the oncology or immuno-oncology therapeutic area. Line management experience is also a must and you will be someone who is keen to lead, build and develop a team.
