About the department

The Patient Relations unit drives global patient engagement and partnership initiatives in support of the Novo Nordisk Patient Strategy.

You will be responsible for driving internal and external activities, which includes coordination of patient engagement activities across Novo Nordisk as well as interaction with key stakeholders such as Global Patient Organisations and industry networks within our key therapy areas.

We are looking to accelerate our patient relations platforms where we are closely involved with other functions across the Novo Nordisk value chain, affiliates, as well as industry leaders from across the globe. You will be instrumental in securing timely input from stakeholders, preparing presentations, maintaining our internal SharePoint pages, and setting up meetings for both internal and external stakeholders. You will also be providing ad-hoc project management support to our large portfolio of patient relations consultancy projects, which are executed in collaboration with functional teams across our therapy areas. This will include assisting with planning and coordination of workshops, creation of visual materials and outcome reports.

You are solutions-oriented, service-minded, and able to communicate proficiently in English, both spoken and written. Furthermore, you are proactive and dedicated, and thrive in a fast-paced environment. You are currently enrolled as a master student, preferably in a Danish institution or with an address in Denmark. You are likely studying for your Master's degree in Communication, Public health, Political science, Business management or similar. It is also an advantage if you have experience with the Pharmaceutical industry and/or working with Non-Governmental Organisations. You are a Microsoft Office super user; especially when it comes to PowerPoint and Excel.
