Market Access Development Manager (Ref 452-17)

Salary: £competitive depending on experience       

Full time, fixed term until 31st December 2021

Closing Date:   3rd October 2017  


Founded in 2005 with a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF), IVCC is a Product Development Partnership (PDP) established as a not-for-profit company and a registered UK charity. IVCC invests donor funds in R&D to overcome barriers to innovation in vector control, with a primary mission of building partnerships that create innovative solutions to prevent the transmission of insect-borne disease. IVCC works with stakeholders to facilitate the development and deployment of novel and improved public health insecticides and formulations.  

In partnership with industry, donors and other stakeholders, we have already delivered the early products from our portfolio and are on track to deliver further novel mosquito vector control interventions to the market, underpinning a global malaria eradication programme and providing additional tools to fight an array of neglected tropical diseases, saving lives, improving health and increasing the prosperity of some of the poorest communities in the world.

As well as product development, IVCC undertakes market access interventions to overcome the many barriers to entry of new products into the public health marketplace in order to accelerate adoption and maximise impact.

We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced individual who can demonstrate proficiency in launching new products from a business development/commercialisation perspective. The incumbent will assume key responsibility for developing an understanding of the role of vector control markets and products within the global context of malaria and neglected tropical disease control and eradication plans of IVCC’s strategic partners in global health, and apply that understanding to support the evolution and implementation of the IVCC Access strategy. Working closely with the Access team, you will establish a network for consultation with manufacturers, country partners and funders to develop launch plans, identify barriers to rapid impact and design market interventions to overcome them. 

Educated to at least degree level, the ideal candidate will have a demonstrable track record of achievement in an industrial (possibly agrochemical or pharmaceutical) capacity of marketing / early stage business development – preferably in a public health environment where the impact is in low to middle income countries. Your experience of building collaborative partnerships, coupled with your ability to apply analytical and creative thinking to the development and implementation of strategy will be key to success in this pivotal post. We need someone who can demonstrate exceptional communication abilities – both verbal and written and a capacity for managing multiple stakeholder collaborations.  

It is envisaged the Market Access Development Manager will travel extensively in order to carry out the duties of the post successfully.    


This is an exciting time to join the team so if you feel you have the necessary skills and qualifications, and an interest in joining a highly motivated team that cares about making a global impact, please apply here: Find out more about IVCC here:
