The Oncology Medical Lead is an instrumental role within the Oncology franchise responsible for managing and leading a team of Disease Area Specialists. The Lead will support the professional development of their reports, ensure that robust Medical Affairs plans are developed and executed on time, on budget, and to strategy, and foster true partnership between external and internal stakeholders.
With the challenge and reward of responsibility for multi-indication products and a very rich pipeline in Oncology, the Lead will help the team navigate skilfully and proactively to strive for success for our business and, above all, for our patients.
Medical Affairs is a dynamic profession involving interaction with a large number of internal cross-functional teams and external stakeholders. No two days are the same, and the role demands a flexible and proactive individual with a strategic mind and sound judgement to support these diverse needs. A strong collaboration is formed within a matrix team due to a solution-finding mind-set, to drive the goals of the business and improved patient outcomes in an ethical, compliant way.
The Medical Lead will not only demonstrate this personally, but will support a team with enthusiasm, drive, and accountability to unlock individual development potential and collective performance. This role will involve developing, coaching, and building a team into a cohesive, high performing unit, demonstrating excellence across the Medical Affairs pillars such as thought leader engagement, scientific exchange, medical education, and Medical leadership with internal stakeholders.
The Medical Lead will have a strategic role, anticipating the future needs of the business, and fostering and driving innovative solutions with their reports and the wider matrix organisation.
