Ensure high quality ICSR handling

Without strong pharmacovigilance (PV) LEO would not exist for long, and when we are growing globally our area of expertise – and your presence – becomes yet more important. As Associate Pharmacovigilance Specialist your overall focus is to make sure that ICSR’s are submitted/distributed according to local legislation and at the same time maintain a high compliance in relation to legislation worldwide. In overview your primary tasks will be to:

  • Handle adverse event cases in a validated IT system, including data entry
  • Distribute/submit adverse events to affiliates and competent authorities
  • Handle adverse events related to customer complaints

You will be working closely together with colleagues in New York and our partner in India. As such, a vital path to your success will be to establish strong relations to a large number of people internally and externally.

Knowledge of safety databases

Your theoretical background is a degree within health science. If this is backed by hands-on experience from working with EMA/ICH/FDA guidelines that also has provided you with computer literacy and knowledge of safety databases it will be an advantage but not a prerequisite to apply.

To succeed, you must possess solid analytical skills in order to interpret data and have the ability to communicate complex medical terminologies in a logical and easy understandable way, written and spoken in high-level English. As you will have many contacts across geography, professions and cultures you will need all of your positive and open-minded approach, including the ability to understand a challenge from the perspective of the person you interact with.
