Junior Health Economist (Part-Time)

Copenhagen, Denmark.

Would you like a job where your health economics competencies are at the centre, while at the same time, you play a crucial role in ensuring that Danish patients have access to vital medicines? As a Junior Health Economist in Market Access, you are part of Denmark’s strongest health economics team in an international and well-consolidated company. Market Access is responsible for identifying, analyzing and communicating the value of our products to the most important customers and actors in the healthcare system. In this connection, the department prepares price analyses, health economic analyzes and register studies – and has a dialogue with the national and regional authorities and decision makers.

You are offered a challenging and varied working day with a high degree of responsibility and self-determination. You will have the opportunity to test your academic knowledge in practice and experience what it is like to work in a global pharmaceutical company. You will be part of a team of skilled and committed colleagues, where you will have ample opportunity to be challenged and developed – both professionally and personally. You will get continuous feedback and sparring to support your growth.

Area of ​​responsibility: As a Junior Health Economist in Market Access, you work closely with the department’s Senior Health Economist and also perform tasks in collaboration with the other colleagues in the department. In the job you will e.g.:

  • Assist and generate health economic analyses, price analyses and registry studies
  • Support Medicines Council processes
  • Prepare and assist reimbursement applications as well as other applications to the Danish health authorities
  • Independently collect, monitor and map relevant data and pricing
  • Prepare presentations to management or other stakeholders
  • Support business critical processes and ad hoc tasks in the department


The ideal candidate

We are looking for a passionate student, who is eager to learn and develop within market access.

  • You have completed the first 2-3 years of relevant higher education (e.g. public health science, economics, political science or similar) and are showing a high professional level during your studies
  • You are a quick learner and curious about new opportunities and tasks
  • You have knowledge of and/or interest in health economics and the health care sector – maybe you already know words such as ICER, QALY and Markov model
  • You work independently and show initiative
  • You are analytical and have strong Excel and Powerpoint skills
  • You have flair for making presentations and are confident communicating data and results also to people who do not have this as their primary task
  • You are ambitious and have an interest in working in an international environment
  • You speak and write Danish and English at a professional level
  • Last but not least, you are a good collaborator, interested in other people and contribute positively to Our Company and the market access team being a nice place to be.


An exciting and challenging position and varied everyday life at Our Company’s new office by the water in the heart of Copenhagen, where only your skills set the limits for the content of your work and your achieved results.

Our Company is one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in Denmark and the company with the most reimbursement applications and HTAs, which is why Market Access in Our Company is probably the strongest health economic environment you will find outside universities and consultancies.

If the right candidate has the courage to face challenges in a large international organization, will be the right place. Three of the market access employees of recent years have worked in senior positions in New York, Switzerland and Singapore.

Your working week will be versatile and outgoing, and you will be part of a team of skilled and committed colleagues, and you will therefore have ample opportunity to be challenged and developed both professionally and personally.

If you are interested, please apply before 11th March 2023. If you would like to find out more details about the role you can contact our HECON Manager, Mette Boie Steffensen on 2444 3727.
