About the Role

Do you have experience of successfully delivering RWE projects? Do you enjoy building and maintaining client relationships? Are you looking to join a company offering excellent career prospects? Costello Medical are growing quickly through demand from both new and existing clients and are therefore looking for a candidate with prior experience in real-world evidence studies who enjoys content delivery, as well as project and client management, to join us as a Senior Analyst.

Senior Analysts take a leading role across projects and work alongside the team to ensure that deliverables are completed to an exceptionally high standard in line with agreed timelines. This involves providing strategic advice to clients at project initiation, supervision of the project team and regular interaction with clients. Senior Analysts are central to the quality control of a project, involving the review of colleagues’ work and the provision of constructive feedback.

You will also play a key role in contributing to business development by building and maintaining excellent client relationships, identifying opportunities to expand the scope of our RWE services, and proactively winning work with companies outside our existing client base.

Costello Medical is structured into divisional teams focusing on Medical Communications, Value and Access and Evidence Development. This role sits in the Real-World Evidence division, which is becoming increasingly important for the demonstration of clinical and economic value of pharmaceuticals and medical technologies.

Our preference is for the Senior Analyst to work our standard working week of 40 hours, Monday to Friday; however, we can consider applicants looking to work a minimum of 30 hours per week.
