Medical Affairs Professional - migraine/neurosciences


For a project in a leading pharma company located in Brussels, we have a great opportunity for a 3-lingual MAP (FR, EN, NL).


Our client was founded in 1876 by a man committed to creating high-quality medicines that met real needs in an era of unreliable elixirs peddled by questionable characters. His charge to the generations of employees who have followed was this: “Take what you find here and make it better and better.”

More than 140 years later, they remain committed to his vision through every aspect of the business and the people they serve starting with those who take the medicines, and extending to health care professionals, employees and the communities in which we live.
