Do you want to contribute to a better life for SMA patients in a unique and valuable way? Then you’re the right person to help pioneer a patient centric powerhouse!

Pharma International (PI) 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 Pharma International (PI) portfolio, and the new operating model (infinity model) for Rare Conditions 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 Rare Conditions Partner (RCP), you thrive for an intimate understanding of the stakeholder needs & behaviors centered around the patient with Spinal Muscular Atrophy disease in Switzerland and Austria.

You’ll do this as part of a larger self-managed and directed network of Rare Conditions Partners. To be successful, you’ll need to closely collaborate with all functions in the respective affiliate to exchange insights and analyze the disease ecosystem. Your knowledge of the competitive landscape will impact Roche strategy, and ultimately patients.
