The Director must have the experience and judgment to represent BIIB effectively with policy makers, trade associations, and other external stakeholders. The Director must be a highly motivated individual with 10+ years of experience in government and/or government affairs, with an in-depth understanding of the policy making process, both formal and informal. This position requires strong organizational, communication, and networking skills, along with excellent relationships with policy makers, both elected and within relevant ministries. Ability to work in a fast paced environment, crisp decision making and strong interpersonal skills are essential, as the Director will engage with a wide array of internal and external stakeholders on a variety of complex topics and must be able to solicit information, persuade others, and shape outcomes. The Director must have a proven track record of effectively translating complex policy issues into clear business impact and strategy.
