Are you interested in developing both external and internal communication on a Nordic level in a global listed pharmaceutical company? Would you like to work both with a strategic and operational focus? Then this full-time position could be of great interest to you.

Please apply as soon as possible.

You are offered a challenging and developing position in an international environment. You will work with a professional and dedicated team focusing on both external and internal communication.

The Communication Manager will cooperate with Nordic affiliate colleagues in Marketing, Brand Teams, Country Managers, Project managers and other functions. On a Regional (European) level you will collaborate with the communication teams, and Corporate Social Responsibility teams and Government Affairs teams. You will also work close to external suppliers and other third parties, including journalists, contractors, consultants and agencies.

You will focus on:

  • To develop robust communications strategies both externally and internally.
  • Working in close collaboration, with the Nordic External Affairs & Communication director to create, implement and manage corporate, internal affiliate communications programmes in line with our business strategy.
  • Raise Astellas Pharmas’ corporate profile and brand via multiple channel approach.
