About the Role

This is a field-based and remote opportunity.

Every advance we make, however large or small, helps to improve the lives of patients and their families. It inspires us to go further, always seeking 'better' for the people relying on us.

• Apply expertise and knowledge of the marketplace, applicable competitors, industry, and cross-functional activities/plans to anticipate and optimally manage business opportunities/challenges.

• Analyze territory market data and trends to gain insights into the local business environment, drive pull-through and lead virtual and / or live engagements with customers.

• Lead any required planning meetings with key partners to solve more sophisticated customer problems and work collaboratively across functions to ensure customer needs are met with urgency.

• Provide appropriate access support in the moment and collaborate effectively with Patient Specialty Services (PSS) associates to meet customer needs.

• Understand how to leverage systems and omni-channel/multi-channel options to apply the full suite of Novartis capabilities to personalize and engage with customers in both face-to-face and virtual environments.
