As a result, our pipeline and clinical activities are growing rapidly, and that is why we need you and all of your skills as leader, coach and guiding light within Clinical Process Management.

High quality clinical trial processes

As Head of Clinical Process Management you will head a team counting 8-10 clinical process managers, based at LEO Pharma’s headquarters in Ballerup, Greater Copenhagen. Your main objective is to drive continuous improvement of clinical investigation processes, implementation and training. Your primary tasks will be to:

Experienced manager within process optimisations in Pharma R&D and with solid leadership skills

You have a life science degree like Pharmacist or similar. Further, you have a strong track record in driving process optimisations (LEAN or similar) within R&D in the pharmaceutical industry. Being familiar within clinical development will be an additional asset.

You have solid experience as people manager and you are known for your open-minded and positive leadership style. You drive for results and even though you thrive on setting the direction and taking the lead, nothing motivates you like accomplishing results by strong team work. Additionally, you have the toolbox to build, motivate and inspire high performance teams with a common drive for success. In this you take benefit from your excellent communication skills that enable you to bring your messages across in an easy understandable way, written as spoken.
As part of a rapidly growing organisation you must also thrive in an environment of change and be able to navigate in a constructive way without having manuals and procedures for each and every process.
