As the leader in pharmaceutical distribution and supply chain management, McKesson delivers supply, technology and care management solutions to over 120,000 retail and health system pharmacies. We work hard so that pharmacists can spend their time supporting patients - not focused on completing paperwork. Our Center for Financial Services plays a critical role in ensuring that hospitals, pharmacies and retail chains receive pharmaceutical products quickly - usually within 24 hours. Our entire team works to ensure patients receive their medications efficiently and begin the process of healing.
In 2014 McKesson acquired Celesio, a leading pharmaceutical wholesaler and retailer operating in 14 countries across Europe and delivering more than 8.5 million products per day to pharmacies and hospitals. McKesson Global Procurement & Sourcing Ltd (MGPS) was established to achieve purchasing synergies by capitalizing on the global scale and capabilities of both McKesson and Celesio as well as develop and drive the private label sourcing strategy for the organization. MGPS is a fully owned legal entity of McKesson Corporation that is responsible for negotiating global agreements and developing strategic partnerships with the industry's leading pharmaceutical and non Rx suppliers, supporting the development of the commercial category strategies for Gx, Bx, Non Rx and parallel trade across Europe, as well as oversee the group's private label sourcing including generics, OTC and medical surgical/para pharmaceuticals.
Working within the MGPS Analytics team and reporting to the Director of Analytics, the BI Analyst will work to analyse sales and performance KPIs with our manufacturers and create regular reporting as well as innovative, exploratory analyses to support negotiations and the commercial agenda. They will manage the MGPS reporting framework and independently drive process improvement with respect to how we capture global data in our databases and use it effectively and accurately for our reporting needs.
The role will focus primarily on supporting our Commercial and Finance teams, but will also require working across the MGPS international stakeholder group including USA, Canada and EU as well as our Global functions in Clinical Trials and Generics.
