Then read on, there is an exciting opportunity to join as our new Senior Analyst in R&D Portfolio management.

About the department

The R&D Strategy and Portfolio Management unit serves as an internal staff function collaborating across the R&D organisation to develop, refine and facilitate the execution of strategies to meet Novo Nordisk’s R&D aspirations. The unit directly supports and reports to the top management in R&D and consists of professionals with backgrounds in science, business and consultancy. The team is overall responsible for driving central R&D portfolio management and to ensure proactive, efficient and professional governance of the R&D project portfolio.

We are a tight-knit unit which is characterised by an informal atmosphere with emphasis on having a fun and engaging working environment. While we are deeply dedicated to our tasks, we maintain focus on preserving a healthy work-life balance.

The position
You will report to the head of R&D Portfolio management and your key responsibilities will include:

  • Delivering a full and integrated set of targeted portfolio analyses that inform decision making and allow evaluation of projects in a portfolio wide context
  • Supporting the delivery of high-profile cross-functional initiatives and projects as well as the design and implementation of R&D portfolio management frameworks
  • Generating regular reports and/or dashboards tracking pipeline status, progression and evaluation
  • Partnering with R&D project leadership and other stakeholders to contribute independent R&D portfolio insights and input and structure portfolio discussion for governance consultations and reviews.

The position has a high level of executive visibility and accountability but will also require hands on interaction and collaboration within the Novo Nordisk project organisation. To succeed, you will need to display strong business and financial acumen as well as a good understanding of the portfolio management principles and the pharmaceutical value chain.

The ideal candidate has relevant high-level life-science education combined with documented experience from the pharmaceutical or biotech industry. We encourage candidates with a variety of backgrounds to apply and, ideally, with a balanced profile of scientific and business competencies combined with relevant experience within new Product planning, consulting, valuation, equity analysis, portfolio management/Strategy or related. Experience working across complex matrix organisations is an advantage.

On a personal level, you have excellent analytical skills allowing you to solicit and process data from multiple sources and to create meaningful and structured material to allow efficient decision-making. You are also a skilled presenter who can communicate effectively and work across the value chain. Furthermore, you are ambitious and persistent while also focusing on a collaborative approach and building trusting relationships at all levels across the organisation.
