Senior Product Manager & Country Value Team Leader

TITLE: Senior Product Manager and Country Value Team Leader

THERAPY AREA: Immunology

LOCATION: High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire

An exciting new opportunity has arisen in Janssen's Immunology team for a Senior Product Manager who will also lead the Country Value Team within this Therapy Area.

There are estimated to be approx 350,000 people living with moderate-severe psoriasis. Sufferers lose, on average, 26 working days per year from work. 21 of these days are spent in hospital. The true impact of the disease is the social exclusion (often resulting in mental health issues) and general lack of fulfilment in life. The impact of biologic therapy is dramatic, often life transforming. Unfortunately most patients are unaware that such treatment options exist. Psoriasis sufferers are not well represented as a group and their voice is not loud enough or particularly well directed.

Stelara has a first-in-class mode of action and is the fastest growing biologic in psoriasis, closing in on the goal of market leadership. With several new indications to come for Stelara, including Psoriatic Arthritis later this year, the brand is seen as a critical growth driver for the organisation.

Janssen is a transformational medical innovator, and within this Immunology is seen as a key disease stronghold for the future of Janssen. With several exciting molecules in development across a range of Immunology indications, the prospects are hugely exciting.

Within this role you will be responsible for maximising the sales and profit of our brand by communicating a vision that inspires both internal and external customers. You will provide on-going market support in order to meet company targets and grow brand revenues, whilst driving all marketing initiatives specific to those brands.
