In-house Contracts Consultant

23 Sep 2019

Are you a Legal professional, looking to move your career into an area that you might never have thought of?

Do you have extensive contracts experience, but always had an interest in the advancement of patient care?

I am delighted to be working with a high-profile Multinational in Cork on their requirement for an in-house Contracts Consultant, on a permanent basis.

The primary responsibilities include providing contract process guidance, conducting contract negotiations, conducting contract analyses, facilitating compliance, and pursuing contracting process improvements. The Consultant will also be expected to balance the requirements of ensuring appropriate controls with a streamlined, customer-focused, and timely contracting process.

A typical day will be very varied and can include among the following;

  • Communicate company's position on various contract issues, identify relationship-building opportunities, secure site contracts, collect site feedback, and facilitate communication with various personnel. This responsibility includes assisting Associates with difficult contract negotiations and significant interventions, and follow-up will be necessary to facilitate this objective;
  • Communicate and negotiate more complex contracts, including Phase I, PET Studies, Oncology Cooperatives, Oncology Networks, and/or Endocrine portfolio sites; and
  • Work with partners across business to review/approve all contracts exceptions.

The Consultant will be responsible for maintaining and conducting contract-related training, including:

  • Developing and implementing training for new contract associates and customers;
  • Creating, maintaining, and distributing contract templates, process documentation, and contract-specific documentation (such as the Legal Guidance Document,) as the contract process owner; and
  • Acting as a mentor to the Contract Associates to provide the necessary guidance and knowledge transfer to allow the contract associates to be successful negotiators.

The Consultant also provides medical contract guidance to other business partners, including:

  • Developing process documentation;
  • Facilitating quality, speed and value through information sharing, , business partnership, and assurance that all guidance is aligned with company policies, clinical processes, and appropriate guidance;
  • Facilitating meetings with other contracting groups; and
  • Serving as the primary contact and process owner for interactions between internal stakeholders related to process changes, documentation requirements, and site contracting issues.

The Consultant is also responsible for identifying and implementing improvements to the contracting processes, through;

  • Standardising and streamlining contract activities, as well as using metrics to drive improvement throughout the entire contracting process;
  • Increasing contracting efficiency and effectiveness by ensuring that learning is shared and leveraged
  • Anticipating changes by evaluating issues and opportunities, both internal and external, and making recommendations to TC management.

If you are experienced in highly sensitive contracts review and negotiation environment, ideally in a medical/ clinical environment, I'd love to chat to you about this unique opportunity. Please send your updated CV without delay!
