Our Pharma Informatics (PIIX) organisation is co-creating a better future for patients through technology and information. We are an agile organisation that brings together great people who are passionate about technology innovation, and who thrive in dynamic, cross-functional, and mission-driven teams.

Our agile organisation is made up of structures called Networks and Chapters. “Networks” comprise business domain and technical experts aligned closely with our Product Development business partners to develop and deliver technology-enabled business strategy. Our “Chapters” are centres of expertise of deeply skilled people deployed for maximum impact. These teams work together to deliver outstanding value to our business, patients, and customers.

Our opportunity within the Business Analyst Chapter works on scoping, planning and supporting the successful implementation of technology solutions by providing business analysis, best practice research, detailed requirements and user stories definition and user acceptance facilitation.
