In Consumer Programs team, we all follow the same passion. We work hard to fully support our consumers with great support services panning from lifestyle, condition management, emotional support to sampling and ordering products, and delivering to their home. You will be part of a vibrant team that designs, develops, and implements these programs from global level. You will therefore have strong sparring with other Program Managers that individually drive service programs within Continence Care, Ostomy Care and Bowel Management. As this is a new segment/ indication, the clinical insights and research is less known, and it will be your responsibility to translate those findings into content strategy and service design. Beyond our team, you will work with many different stakeholders in HQ from Marketing, Evidence & Adoption, Branding & Design, and our markets around the world.

Your responsibilities in developing and implementing the new service program
As the Program Manager, you have a unique opportunity to explore a new area to synthesize the latest insights within Coloplast to build a new service program from its foundation. This includes not only strategic and commercial direction of this new service offering, but also exploration of needs and knowledge from our key external stakeholders e.g. healthcare professionals (HCPs) and patients. As the Program Manager, you will be tasked with an exciting opportunity to explore and define the service blueprint and implementation of this program or potentially content within the existing Continence Program. You will have a multitude of already existing materials to get inspiration from including our award-winning email flows, latest digital service offerings, call protocols for our Care Advisors on the phone, offline and online content, and more. Your focus on translating our end users’ needs and commercial strategy into actionable outcomes and impact will be essential to success in the role. Finally, you will be responsible for engaging in an ongoing dialogue with our markets on how the program can move the needle the most. 

In this role, you will more specifically:
•    Set the strategic direction for development of the new service program and/ or content for new segments/ indications
•    Design the overall framework and direction for service communication and relevant content

You always focus on business impact – you enjoy being on top of the results from your responsibilities and in proactively seeking new ways to increase commercial value. Finally, it is important that you thrive in working with a certain extent of ambiguity – this is an explorative, ‘greenfield’ position where deliverables are not completely defined and may change ongoingly. 

In addition, the below attributes improve your chance of success:
·    A Master’s degree within relevant field, e.g., business, digital/service innovation or marketing/communication
·    3+ years of experience within marketing communications, service innovation, product management, engagement programs, or similar 
·    Experience with activating consumer programs or services is a plus
·    Ability to work on a strategic/conceptual level, but also getting into the details of our processes, performance numbers and project plans
