You will also work with internal subject matter experts / process owners and counterparts in supplier organisations to ensure the maintenance of interface processes and ways of working e.g alliance model guidance documents

- Performance monitoring support. Here you will support monitoring of quality and performance in alignment with the governance requirements and appropriate service level agreements, through maintenance of portfolio and study level metrics dashboards

- Alliance Lead support where you´re encouraged to support ongoing assessment of Lessons Learned and seek new opportunities to drive efficiencies and continuous improvement within supplier, across functions and across delivery models
