Vacancy Clinical Team Manager – Amsterdam


For an international Pharmaceutical powerhouse, we are looking for a Clinical Team Manager. Although we are talking about a big international organisation, there is a lot that sets them apart from other Pharmaceutical enterprises. You will be part of a down to earth, people focused, multi-cultural organisation full of energetic and vibrant professionals.

The city of Amsterdam holds the highest range of different nationalities, this also reflects in the office where especially during lunch breaks the cultural diversity really sticks out, food from all over the world is being released from their tupperware confinements.
