Market Access Manager

Tilburg, Netherlands.

You will ensure access for patients to our innovations, in which the balance between medical outcomes, patient experience and costs play a major role. The work of the HEMAR (Market Access) Manager is focused on the level of the national authorities, health insurers and care institutions. We have many innovative products in the pipeline for which complex procedures are often in place.

Place In The Organization:

You report within the HEMAR department, a subdivision of the (broader) Market Access department in the Netherlands. The home base for this position is our Breda offices.

The Market Access Department in the Netherlands is a component of Janssen-Cilag Benelux, in which most teams operate as Benelux teams. Only the department of Market Access is handled separately for the Netherlands and Belgium due to the strongly divergent requirements for patient access in the two countries.

The organisation can be seen as a matrix organisation, in which multidisciplinary teams (Country Value Teams (CVTs)) are set up around the products of the therapeutic areas. A Market Access representative is involved in each of these teams. Teams like these operate likewise at the European level, maintaining close contact with the local teams. Therefore, the organisation offers sufficient career opportunities, for example towards the European level. In addition, there exist of course other ways of developing within other Johnson & Johnson companies within Benelux or Johnson & Johnson companies established in other countries. There is also a possibility, for example during part of the working week, of working within European teams.

Tasks And Responsibilities:

You will be responsible for establishing and implementing the market access strategy for current and future medicinal products of Janssen in the Netherlands. This strategy extends to reimbursement on the national level and in close partnership with market access on the level of health insurers and at the hospital/institution levels. You act as a Market Access representative in the Country Value Team representing the different access functions and providing strategic feedback.

You are responsible for supervising the legal and procedural requirements regarding reimbursement and for handling the documentation and administration needed to do this with.

In addition, you actively contribute to the international and European strategy.

You are responsible for the procedure for obtaining and retaining reimbursement for our medicinal products within the applicable legislation and structures.

The boundaries of old reimbursement systems appear to have been reached and there is a demand for innovative approaches although at the moment these have not yet been finalised. It is encouraged for you to work with the vital creativity and initiative together with internal and external partners on new concepts of economic value, reimbursement and price.

You are able to interact with global and EU functions to support the local strategy for acquiring reimbursement. Hereby, skills regarding HTA (health economic modelling) and market access are fully acquired.

You will make an inventory of the requirements in the context of HE-research, relays shortcomings in the existing development programme and makes proposals for the possible performance of additional research.

Advises/Supports CVTs And Other Departments

In close collaboration with the other functions within the Market Access department, you proactively advise the various CVTs and other departments about market access and will be responsible for incorporating the views of market access into the product strategies. In addition, you give practical support in projects that focus on specific target groups such as hospitals, medical insurers and authorities to support the value of the medicinal products.

You will support and advise HE research, which is performed on behalf of reimbursement dossiers (often with the help of third parties).
