Our Health Economics and Market Access teams in the United Kingdom and Nordic countries collaborate to deliver health technology assessment (HTA) submissions for many markets.

You should possess excellent communication and organisational skills, pay close attention to detail, and should be able to work effectively both independently and as part of a team to support project work for European and US-based clients.

At RTI-HS, you will be provided the opportunity to conduct meaningful work in a collaborative, cross functional environment. We are focused on your career development and provide a generous benefits package.
