We touch the lives of over 200 million patients every day in over 60 countries around the world. After all, everyone needs healthcare or medication at some point. Yet until today, you may not have heard of us.

We’re Teva and we’re the company that supplies more medicines to the NHS than anyone else. We’re a vital part of the UK and Ireland healthcare systems.

We have the largest medicine cabinet in the world, but these days, people know more and expect more from their healthcare provider. People are taking a more active role in managing their health, through technologies such as smartphone apps, sensors and monitors. They are looking to us for solutions, better health outcomes, information and support.

In Communications and Government Affairs we have a clear mission: to support our business by becoming the champions of Teva’s reputation, internally and externally. 

This includes overseeing all internal and external communication activities across the business in the UK and Ireland, taking Teva’s global strategies and bringing them to life in one of our most important markets. It also means developing a roadmap for our GA activities, prioritising the areas where Teva needs to lead, influencing the future of the pharmaceutical industry in post-Brexit Britain, and identifying the critical stakeholders we need to partner with.

Main Responsibilities

  • Execute the global Teva communications strategy in-cluster and country in the most appropriate way, according to global and regional guidelines
  • Proactively develop and execute relevant, appropriate and creative communications plans for cluster and country-specific requirements
  • Partner with all aspects of Teva’s business to ensure that audiences hear a coherent corporate voice – supports and advises functions, sites and key leaders in their cluster and country, helping to implement communications standards and processes
