About The Role
Do you have experience of successfully conceptualising, developing and communicating health economic models that demonstrate the value of new healthcare interventions? Do you enjoy building and maintaining client relationships? Are you looking to join a growing company offering excellent career prospects? Costello Medical are growing quickly through demand from both new and existing clients and therefore have excellent opportunities for candidates with prior industry experience, ideally within a pharmaceutical, medical devices or medical consulting company, to play an important role in ensuring our continued reputation for quality and positively impacting the future development of our team.
As a Senior Health Economist, you will play a key role within project teams working alongside a Project Manager to ensure work is delivered to an exceptionally high quality and in line with client expectations. This includes providing strategic advice to clients from model conceptualisation through to building of the model and interpretation of the results. Senior Health Economists are central to the quality control of the project as well as the successful mentoring and career development of the colleagues with whom they work. Technical review of work and training of Health Economists through the provision of constructive feedback are important parts of the role. In addition to this and helping define our project approach, the ideal candidate will also be expected to deliver technical work themselves; they will therefore have the opportunity to progress their own technical modelling skills.
Our Health Economics team deliver modelling projects to a broad range of pharmaceutical, medical devices companies and public sector and non-profit clients. You will be expected to work across different accounts spanning multiple disease areas and therefore should be able to familiarise yourself with new areas quickly.
You will also play a key role in contributing to business development by developing and maintaining excellent client relationships and identifying opportunities to provide additional services to clients within projects. There may also be opportunities to line manage and mentor our Health Economist Interns.
Senior Health Economists are supported to progress to the Consultant Health Economist role, and this can typically be achieved in 1 to 2 years. As a Consultant Health Economist, you would manage a range of projects and have full responsibility for client communication on your projects, as well as leading budgeting plans and business development efforts. In addition to technical project delivery, you would line manage team members and have internal responsibilities spanning areas such as recruitment and training.
