What you will do

As our Alliance Development Sr Manager, you'll be at the forefront of influencing policy decisions at both the EU level and within individual member countries.

In this role, you'll forge strong partnerships with influential patient advocacy groups, championing their voices in policy discussions related to rare diseases, oncology, cardiovascular health, women's health, and beyond. You'll also collaborate closely with non-patient stakeholders who share our commitment to ensuring that EU and national policies support the needs of patients.

Your expertise will be instrumental in navigating the complexities of European policymaking, identifying strategic opportunities for engagement, and building alliances that advance our Government Affairs and Policy goals. Whether it's crafting compelling advocacy campaigns, facilitating impactful public forums, or providing invaluable insights to our leadership team, you'll play a pivotal role in driving positive change for patients across Europe.

Let’s do this. Let’s change the world.

In this vital role, you will:

  • Build and nurture relationships with patient advocacy groups to support our international policy goals.

  • Collaborate with internal stakeholders to ensure coordinated efforts across functions.
  • Execute government policy plans with key stakeholders, empowering patients and caregivers and addressing policy needs.
  • Establish an alliance framework to communicate emerging issues to government and policy stakeholders.
  • Evaluate and share policy needs with EU patient communities, engaging affected communities where relevant.
  • Develop relationships with organizations such as EURODIS and the European Patients Forum to address key policy issues.
  • Produce policy-focused alliance development materials and support education campaigns, patient mapping, and launch activities.

  • Strong communication skills and proficiency in relevant technology tools (e.g., Excel, PowerPoint).


What you can expect of us

As we work to develop treatments that take care of others, so we work to care for our teammates’ professional and personal growth and well-being. Therefore, Amgen is recognized as World's Best Workplace 2021 (ranking: #8).
