Market Access Manager

About Astellas:

At Astellas we are a progressive health partner, delivering value and outcomes where needed.

We pursue innovative science, focussing initially on the areas of greatest potential and then developing solutions where patient need is high, often in rare or under-served disease areas and in life-threatening or life-limiting diseases and conditions.

We work directly with patients, doctors and health care professionals on the front line to ensure patient and clinical needs are guiding our development activities at every stage.

Our global vision for Patient Centricity is to support the development of innovative health solutions through a deep understanding of the patient experience. At Astellas, Patient Centricity isn’t a buzzword - it’s a guiding principle for action. We believe all staff have a role to play in creating a patient-centric culture and integrating an awareness of the patient into our everyday working practices, regardless of our role, team or division.

We work closely with regulatory authorities and payers to find new ways to ensure access to new therapies. We deliver the latest insights and real-world evidence to inform the best decisions for patients and their care-givers, to ensure the medicines we develop continue to provide meaningful outcomes.

Beyond medicines, we support our stakeholder communities to drive initiatives that improve awareness, education, access and ultimately standards of care.

About this job:

As a Market Access Manager, your primary mission is to define and drive the market access strategy for the assigned products. Collaborating with a multifunctional project group, you will evaluate medical and economic aspects, access scenarios (ATU, SMR/ASMR, pricing, target population, etc.), and integrate these into the market access strategy. Your role involves producing and submitting market access files to the French Health Authority (HAS) and the Economic Committee for Health Products (CEPS) within stringent quality and timeline standards. This includes preparing therapeutic interest notes (NIT), coordinating early dialogues with HAS, and managing interfaces with HAS/CEPS.

You'll also design financial models supporting market access strategies, analyse clinical studies in conjunction with the medical department, and be the liaison for France's needs within the EMEA teams, ensuring they are integrated into the European market access strategy. Monitoring scientific evaluation and economic regulation developments is crucial, and you will actively contribute to pricing reviews, propose corrective actions, and engage in relevant industry working groups.

Hybrid working:

At Astellas we recognize that our employees enjoy having balance between their professional and home lives. We are proud of our hybrid approach which empowers you to have flexibility on whether to work from home or in the office.

In this role, you will:

  • Lead a multifunctional project group within the subsidiary, evaluating medical, economic, and access scenarios for market access strategies.
  • Collaborate with the medical department to analyse clinical studies and identify data needs.
  • Establish and manage a payers committee to test market access strategies.
  • Produce and submit market access files to HAS and CEPS, including preparing therapeutic interest notes and managing interfaces with HAS/CEPS.
  • Communicate France's needs to key EMEA decision-makers and ensure their integration into the European market access strategy.

Essential Knowledge & Experience:

  • Proven experience in Transparency/Pricing/Reimbursement.
  • Expertise in economic and financial modelling.
  • Strong understanding of financial regulation mechanisms.
  • Fluent in English for regular interactions with European counterparts.

Preferred Knowledge & Experience:

  • Proficiency in Market Access Strategies: Develop and implement market access strategies for assigned products, integrating medical, economic, and access scenarios.
  • Knowledge of Regulatory Compliance: Ensure market access files meet the quality and timeline standards for submission to HAS and CEPS.
  • Be able to design financial models to support negotiation scenarios with payers.
  • Scientific Evaluation Monitoring: Stay updated on scientific evaluation and economic regulation changes, propose corrective actions, and actively participate in industry working groups.
  • Collaborative Leadership: Lead and collaborate effectively within multifunctional teams, ensuring seamless integration of market access strategies.
