Our client is looking for a Pharmaceutical Officer to strengthen the team and help the organisation grow. The company started back in 1992 because an innovative entrepreneur believed that everyone has the right to the right medicines when they need it. Flash forward to 2018; the situation hasn’t changed. Due to the current pressure on the pharmaceutical market (competition and lack of complete reimbursements) the margins are declining. This results in the fact that pharmaceutical companies can’t make enough profits on some specific medicines and stop producing them (for the Belgian and Dutch market). Unfortunately; the patients can’t get better without them, so it is mandatory to get these medicines to the patients.

What do they do exactly?

For example, one of the hospitals is in need of a specific medicine which is produced by one producer in Germany, but they don’t produce this medicine anymore. The hospital calls the company with a specific request for this medicine. The company uses their entire international network to see where these medicines are available, when found, they make sure that the right medicines are delivered to their office as soon as possible. Here they will check if everything is in place (the right medicines, right quantity, right casing, etc.) and send them to the hospital as soon as possible so the patients can be helped. Because of the urgency in finding these medicines, the company is looking for someone who is intrinsically motivated to help people get better, be an asset to humanity in every possible way.

In this way, they are responsible for helping thousands of patients over the last couple of years. Because of their effective ways to do business, they get repeat business, positive feedback and “thank you” notes on a regular base.


In the position of Pharmaceutical Officer, you are responsible for:

  • Contact with different international suppliers
  • Finding the right medicines including the SPC-GMP certificates
  • Checking the medicines when they arrive
  • Making sure everything is in place
  • Collaborating with logistics to ensure that the medicines are delivered as soon as possible
  • Participating in the internal pharmaceutical platform
  • Preparing and sending quotations


  • Bachelor working and thinking level
  • Fluent in Dutch and English (French and/or German would be an asset)
  • Excellent knowledge of medicines
  • Knowledge of GDP and GMP rules and legislation
  • Experience with SAP (or other CRM system), Outlook and Excel
  • Entrepreneurial mindset (self starter)
