  • Prioritize and manage workload, meeting projected deadlines
  • Learn / maintain a minimum understanding of terminology, requirements, and processes specific to the pharmaceutical market access space

Requirements and Experience
  • Proven working experience as an Art Director, demonstrable with a strong portfolio
