The Role & Responsibilities:


With the continued development and growth of the business, we are now looking for a Senior Health Economist to join our team. This is an excellent opportunity to make a difference in a dynamic and rapidly growing company. The ideal candidate would have a high work ethic, be team oriented and hands-on in a varied role. This is a permanent, full-time position and the successful candidate can be based in our offices in either Cambridge, Manchester, Newcastle, York or Bicester. 


Responsibilities of the role would include developing cost-effectiveness and budget impact tools to demonstrate the impact to the patient/payer/provider when a new health technology (e.g. a drug, device or diagnostic technique) is used to replace existing technologies, by comparing the costs and benefits.

In a consultancy environment each project is unique but generally a health economist would be expected to:

  • Research a disease area and understand the current treatment landscape
  • Analyse efficacy and safety data using results published in journal articles, patient level data from clinical trials or real world data from disease registries
  • Identify limitations with current health technologies and any unmet need then identify/utilise the value proposition for the new technology to address these issues
  • Develop a model of the disease and the relevant health technologies
    • Models types may include Markov models, multi-state models, partitioned survival models and discrete event simulation
  • Find resource use and costs and quality-of-life data to populate the model
  • Be able to explain what has been done and interpret the results in presentations and written documentation
  • Produce supporting documentation for models such as technical reports, business cases, user guides, posters and manuscripts
  • Producing documents support submissions to reimbursement bodies such as the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) or the Scottish Medicines Consortium (SMC) that assess the cost-effectiveness and budget impact of new health technologies
  • Train client payer facing teams to use the developed budget impact models
  • Working with our designers and programmers to create fully programmed digital versions of models produced
  • Willingness to support and mentor less experienced colleagues


Requirements:


  • A degree or equivalent in economics or statistics and ideally a postgraduate degree or equivalent in Health Economics, or any related domain
  • A minimum of 3 years relevant industry experience in health economics (either HEOR consultancy or the pharmaceutical industry)
  • Excellent MS Word, Outlook, PowerPoint and Excel skills
  • Highly autonomous with excellent communication skills both written and spoken (English)
  • Highly motivated team player with an outstanding eye for detail and quality
  • Knowledge of statistical analysis/modelling software such as SAS, STATA, VBA or R would be an advantage
