Business Insights and Analytics BIA Manager - Farnborough, Hampshire, United Kingdom,

Business Insights and Analytics (BIA) Manager

My client, a multinational pharmaceutical company, is looking for a Business Insights and Analytics (BIA) Manager to join their team in Farnborough on an initial 4 month contract.

My client has earmarked the use of data and insights as a pillar to improving commercial effectiveness. As a BIA team, they are entering a time of exciting transformation, moving away from manual analytics towards Advanced Analytics, AI-led processes that offer greater speed and precision.


Lead the analytics capability for the business franchise working closely with the franchise leadership. A strong focus on commercial analytics (market share, market growth, patient volume, source of business, etc.) to understand where we are making gains for the business and compliment with insights to understand why. In the future, we have the opportunity to work closely with the digital and marketing teams to plan for agile marketing analytics. The UK is a priority market for my client globally and is often a first mover on major analytics projects to help drive the business forward.


We want our BIA managers to understand the characteristics of the market that may influence the current and future paths for our medicines to reach the patient. To do this we focus on the patients' and HCPs' needs and compliment this with a deep understanding of the business environment to help the business make better decisions. Insights generation may take the form of market research, field force interactions and competitor intelligence. The BIA manager would be the leader for these processes for the business.
