GS1 Healthcare is a global, voluntary user community bringing together all healthcare supply chain stakeholders, including manufacturers, distributors, healthcare providers, solution providers, regulatory bodies and industry associations. Our role is to facilitate a neutral and open environment to lead the successful development and implementation of global GS1 standards enhancing patient safety, operational and supply chain efficiencies.
As such, GS1 Healthcare envisions a future in which the healthcare sector achieves harmonised implementation of global standards in business and clinical processes enabling interoperability, optimal quality and efficiency of healthcare delivery to benefit patients.
The Manager Public Policy Healthcare will work on programs and initiatives to achieve societal, regulatory and business environments in which GS1 standards will thrive. To support the use of GS1 standards in healthcare regulations and the drive for global harmonisation, the Manager will be responsible for tracking and analyzing relevant requirements worldwide. The Manager will also be responsible for managing the Global GS1 Healthcare Public Policy Community and relevant tools.
The successful candidate will have the opportunity to work with GS1 Member Organisations from across the world, but also with global healthcare stakeholders. The ability to build, maintain and drive relationships with key healthcare inter-governmental and regulatory authorities is very important as these are key for shaping the strategic activities of GS1 Healthcare. In this role she/he will ensure that the benefits of global standards are well explained to and understood by regulators and relevant stakeholders across the world. The Healthcare sector is one the highest regulated sectors, with different objectives from fight against counterfeit medicines to improvement of pharmacovigilance. As such, this role requires passion, a deep understanding of the way to interact with regulators and decision-makers, and ultimately the commitment to make a difference for patient safety. This role will play an important part in aligning policy work across the Global GS1 Healthcare Public Policy Community and therefore must have strong collaborative skills, willingness to proactively involve colleagues from all countries and support multicultural working groups.
The position is based in Brussels and requires approximately 10% international travel.
