Pharma International is Roche's global business network (excluding US) of over 15'000 people, who work to ensure better outcomes for more patients faster. We are structured into two communities - the International 8 Markets (Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom) and the International 7 Areas (Africa, Asia-Pacific, CEETRIS (Central Eastern Europe, Turkey, Russia and Indian Sub-Continent), Europe North, Europe South, Latin America and the Middle East).
Rare Conditions is part of the PI portfolio, and the new Infinity model for RC is spearheading the overall transformation within PI. The transformation aims to create a more innovative organization that puts the customer at the center of what we do.
The mission we want to accomplish is to bring ‘more value’ to people with Rare Conditions faster to transform their lives. This new way of working is based on the principle of true partnership with the Rare Condition community, and through that addressing their needs via co-creation.
As the RC Partner (RCP), you thrive for an intimate understanding of the Eco-system needs & behaviors for SMA, you act as the customer-facing, single-point of contact, and as the connector with Roche's internal capabilities, and ultimately drive for co-creation within an Eco-system to achieve personalized & fit-for purpose solutions.
You’ll do this as part of a larger self-managed and directed network of RCPs. To be successful, you’ll need to closely collaborate with all functions in an affiliate to exchange insights and analyze the disease ecosystem. Your knowledge of the competitive landscape will impact Roche strategy, and ultimately patients.
