Through our understanding and alignment with our client’s investment strategies and knowledge of the key industry themes, we work to develop creative learning solutions – from phone consultations and one-on-one meetings to surveys, roundtables, reports, and site tours.

GLG is seeking new and recent post-graduates to join our Healthcare Research Associate Program in London, who have a strong interest in excelling at best-in-class client service in a fast growth, and team-oriented environment. Start date will be October 2018.
After completing an initial training period, Healthcare Associates spend the first half of the associate program recruiting and introducing new experts into GLG’s global membership allowing them to develop a comprehensive knowledge of healthcare accounts and client servicing strategies. Through recruiting exposure across the full range of client accounts, associates also start to develop their healthcare content knowledge and learn about the key themes impacting our users.
Healthcare Associates are promoted to Senior Research Associates after achieving specific quantitative and qualitative goals. Senior Associates take on direct client facing responsibilities and are tasked on servicing select healthcare accounts end-to-end. During this period, the focus is on developing their client facing skillset including account servicing, relationship building and utilization of GLG product and content levers which can impact account growth.
Senior Associates can rapidly progress to a Research Manager role with responsibility for a book of business and starting to directly manage junior professionals. From there, there is a clear path to Team Leadership, building the skillets for full commercial, operational and talent responsibility for a portfolio of business and team members.
