For our Swiss customer located in Basel we are currently looking for (m/f) a Project Manager (Senior)

•    Type of placement:  3 months, external contract with possible long term extension
•    Company:  major Pharma company in Basel area
(monthly all in salary levels in CHF,  level1= 5-10k , level2=10-15k,  level3= >15k)

In order to support a major, digital transformation initiative in Global Drug Development focusing on replacing paper-based SOPs and related “Read and Understand” Training through Intelligent Business Process Management solution(s), we are looking for an experienced Project Manager with IT and QA-background, as well as Scrum Master and eBPM experience for a 4 month’s timeframe (full-time) starting beginning of September.



Managing business processes and GxP training in Global Drug Development (GDD) is very complex and manual and becomes a bottle-neck to digitally transform drug development. Therefore, GDD aims to fully digitalize its processes. A project team has been put in place and aims to conduct a pilot to digitally transform GDD business processes and related GxP training. The objective of the pilot is to create a prototype of an “enterprise Business Process Management (eBPM)” solution based on 1-2 selected business processes, integrating GxP requirements, processes, people & training, as well as IT systems.
As we are looking at a pilot and in order to manage timeline expectations, we aim to apply the “SCRUM” methodology and the final “product” of this pilot should be a prototype that can be “show-cased”.
