Description

At AstraZeneca we turn ideas into life changing medicines. Working here means being entrepreneurial, thinking big and working together to make the impossible a reality. We’re focused on the potential of science to address the unmet needs of patients around the world. We commit to those areas where we think we can really change the course of medicine and bring big new ideas to life. As Diabetes Sales Specialist – Philadelphia, PA, you’ll play a pivotal role in channeling our scientific capabilities to make a positive impact on changing patients’ lives.

AstraZeneca's strategy in CVMD is a patient-centric approach to disease treatment, so we are tackling multiple risk factors by uniting our cardiovascular (CV), metabolic and chronic kidney disease (CKD) areas into one integrated approach – cardiovascular and metabolic disease (CVMD).  This approach means we look at the CVMD patient as a whole, rather than by disease area, because we know that cardiovascular disease is a well-known consequence of diabetes and CKD.  Each of ours focus areas seek to further reduce morbidity, mortality and organ damage by addressing multiple risk factors across cardiovascular (CV) disease, diabetes and chronic kidney-disease indications. The patient-centric approach is reinforced by science-led life-cycle management programs and technologies, including early research into regenerative methods.

Main Duties and Responsibilities:

You will develop superior product and disease state knowledge and effectively educate and engage healthcare professionals in dialogue about clinical evidence, approved indications, and product efficacy/safety profiles to support on-label prescribing for appropriate patients.  You will demonstrate a deep, clear and thorough understanding of the Diabetes disease state, Diabetes products and relevant competitor products, including their mechanisms of action, indications, efficacy, and safety.  You will function independently with a high degree of sales proficiency to drive sales performance and ensure sales forecasts and assigned budgets meet or exceed therapeutic and territory expectations.  You will successfully complete training requirements, including product examinations. 

By developing and maintain in-depth knowledge of market, demographic, and managed care information relative to your assigned sales territory.  You will be able to work with your Regional Sales Director and District Sales Manager to develop a local strategy and business plan to generate recognizable increases of sales in your territory.  You will capitalize on formulary approvals and other opportunities through effective implementation of the Strategic Targeting Plans by using a wide variety of promotional, personnel resources and analytical tools to maximize effectiveness in assigned sales territory, based on local assessment of customer needs.   You will provide special education to healthcare providers through appropriate programs that fall within AstraZeneca’s ethical guidelines.  Work with other Pharmaceutical Sales Specialists around common objectives to coordinate selling efforts.
