About the Opportunity
A pharmaceutical company makes bold strategic decisions every day. Those decisions are informed by a mix of insight, data and experience. As a Business Intelligence Manager you will be the conduit through which that insight flows. Integral to the business, critical to the success of the present day and future, you will be the strategic partner of the marketing team.
If you have ever wanted to have a direct influence on brand strategy and the strategic direction of the business then the Business Intelligence Manager role is the one for you. No other cross-fuctional role has quite the same impact or is viewed with greater importance.
There are multiple roles available due to expansion.
