Regulatory Scientific Strategy Manager
We are a truly international company, fourth largest in our industry and operating across 120 markets. An inclusive, innovative global FMCG business supported by over 27,500 employees. As we embrace a new era of growth, we are transforming. Our ways of working and culture are driven by a challenger mindset, constantly questioning the status quo. Our agility and entrepreneurial spirit, alongside award winning development programmes, enable innovation and success while creating exciting and rewarding career choices. As we move forward, our customers will be at the heart of what we do, evolving to needs and expectations and committing to a more meaningful contribution to harm reduction by building a successful NGP business. Integral to our long-term success is our sustainability strategy, behaving responsibly and supporting our ambitions, all underpinned by high governance. Encouraging inclusion at local levels and supporting a developing and robust diversity agenda globally, we are fully committed to creating and maintaining an environment that celebrates and respects difference.
In this role you will be defining the strategy for the regulatory scientific testing framework for all Next Generation Product (NGP) categories, globally, ensuring a consistent approach, to secure favourable regulatory outcomes for IMB’s commercial choices.
The strategy will encompass the “what”, “where”, “when” and “how” elements for all scientific and regulatory programmes, working with internal and external stakeholders such as Labs, Operational Science and Safety, Product Safety and Compliance, Harm Reduction and Engagement and CRO’s, to clearly define what is required to launch in each market, in a costly and timely manner, in line with Business plans.
The role is responsible for driving and leading the scientific strategy for all NGP related activities for US launch projects, ensuring that necessary Duty of Care requirements are conducted to enable on time and successful product launches in line with commercial plans. Furthermore, the role holder will lead on developing and implementing the scientific testing framework for US launch projects, such as Pre-Market Tobacco Applications and Modified Risk Tobacco Applications (MRTP). For NGP product launches in pre-authorisation markets (ex US), the role is responsible for defining the scientific activities to meet regulatory requirements.
The Regulatory Scientific Strategy Manager is a collaborative role in which a matrix way of working with stakeholders from multiple areas of the business is critical, as success is delivered via Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) that are not direct reports. The role holder will work closely with Labs, Operational Science and Safety, Product Safety and Compliance, Harm Reduction and Engagement, Category, ITGB, markets and CRO’s.
