Analyst

Who We Are

We were founded in Cambridge, UK, in 2008, and enjoyed rapid growth, driven by the demand for our expertise from clients in Europe and North America. Our excellent reputation enabled us to establish our Asia-Pacific office in Singapore, in 2014. Further expansion of the company is anticipated over the coming years, with potential additional offices in Japan, China and the United States.

What Our Analysts Do

The Analyst position is ideal for those with experience in scientific research and for enthusiastic recent graduates in the sciences, who possess exceptional English language skills and are seeking the opportunity to be part of a growing team. You will be based in our Singapore office, working closely with our Asia-Pacific Head and the Asia-Pacific team, as well as collaborating with our experts in our UK team. In a typical week, you could be working on a slide set summarising the epidemiology of type 2 diabetes in Malaysia, supporting a client at an onsite educational event in Bangkok and working alongside colleagues in the UK to adapt a health economics model for a client in China. The materials you prepare will be used directly by pharmaceutical companies to communicate with stakeholders who are instrumental to the successful uptake of novel therapies.
