Pfizer U.S. Risk Assessment and Monitoring in New York City, New York
Seeking a compliance professional with strong organizational, interpersonal and analytical skills who can support our enterprise-wide monitoring efforts for the U.S. market. The Senior Monitoring Specialist will be responsible for: (i) conducting and otherwise managing a portfolio of structured and unstructured monitoring reviews (involving a range of risk areas and geographies, based on our ongoing assessment of - and efforts to mitigate - potential risk); (ii) developing and executing on strategies for sample selection and risk-based targeting (including search term development, the culling together of training data, and otherwise developing risk-based targeting models); (iii) collecting, interpreting, and effectively combining diverse data sets; and (iv) reporting findings to relevant stakeholders.
At a high-level, the Senior Monitoring Specialist will support U.S. RAM's leadership in the development and execution of a pliable, risk-based, and integrated monitoring strategy. S/he will be primarily responsible for supporting U.S. RAM's dynamic monitoring program which covers promotional, patient reimbursement and support as well as other emerging and/or future areas of risks. Specifically, the Sr. Monitoring Specialist will work closely with Compliance, Legal, and business colleagues to develop subject matter expertise about relevant business activities, and then develop monitoring initiatives designed to evaluate how the business is operating, identify potential compliance-related risk signals, and drive a more proactive and continuous dialogue about programmatic effectiveness and performance. S/he will serve as U.S. RAM's primary point of contact for the reviews s/he manages (i.e. liaising directly with BU Compliance, Legal, and other relevant stakeholders across the enterprise). This requires strong judgment and analytic skills, as well as the unique ability to transform information into insight -- and to design reports that help our clients digest potentially complex and voluminous data.
The Sr. Monitoring Specialist may also have an opportunity to work closely with the International Monitoring team to execute on work programs designed to identify potential compliance-related risk "signals" across a variety of quantitative data sets, focused, at least initially, on ABAC-related signals. These results, when combined with other monitoring activities, will support more informed decision-making, action-planning, continuous improvement and risk mitigation across the enterprise.
These colleagues will report to the US. Risk Assessment and Monitoring Lead.
