For Johnson & Johnson's Global Regulatory Affairs team, we are currently hiring an Associate Director of Global Regulatory Policy & Intelligence (GRPI) that can be based in any of our J&J/Janssen hubs in EMEA. We believe in strong team collaboration both locally and globally, which is why we have a hybrid work model by default.

In this role, you will be a member of a team of regional policy and intelligence professionals developing high-quality regulatory policy positions and advocacy strategies based on an understanding of regulatory and legislative trends and issues that have the potential to impact J&J Pharmaceutical Research & Development.

The Associate Director will have a thorough understanding of the diverse regulatory frameworks, together... with a passion for shaping the future of drug development and making a difference for our patients.

The decentralized nature of Johnson &Johnson’s business and the range of therapeutic categories in which it operates means this role will encompass a broad range of responsibilities that will need addressing with equal importance and measure of priority.
