There is an incredible opportunity for innovation in the drug development process. We are reimagining what’s possible to build a more efficient and sustainable model.

Christian Antoni, MD, PhD Chief Global Development Officer

EQRx believes responsibility can be revolutionary. Want to make a difference while advancing your career? Come join a team that is working towards our bold mission of developing innovative medicines at radically low prices to help people get the medicines they need.

What You’ll Do

You will oversee the sourcing and selection of CMO/CPO associated with the manufacture of API and Formulated Product & Packaging. This includes the selection of third parties, the identification of cost savings year over year across portfolio by understanding total cost of ownership (TCO) and leveraging supporting functions for execution of a Global Network Category approach for the implementation of third-party sources. You will support our Development and Commercial teams on strategic sourcing of CMO/CPO for selection, contract negotiation, including supply agreement creation, management, and acting as key contact for contract related issue escalation. You’ll provide regular guidance to the business on risks and opportunities, including pricing and strategic input into the AOP and budget cycles.

You will identify current and new supplier capabilities to meet EQRx needs, now and in the future. You’ll support the Supplier Management in Post Deal contract negotiation – price changes / one off changes and developing analytics for cost savings opportunities. You will be responsible for the sourcing strategy, identifying and evolving best practices and transforming the organization into a center of excellence for the organization.

You will contribute to the Supplier Evaluation Assessment process for the pre-selection of suitable third parties as part of the overall due diligence process. You will work to standardize the RFP process for the organization and assisting business units in conducting RFPs for Finished Dosage Forms. You’ll provide an up-to-date view, through soliciting information and feedback about global CMO /CDMO and CPO’s and tracking that information for potential future utilization of the third party; bench-marking the quality of the goods/services, pricing, and any potential risks with vendors. You will create and maintain a list of globally preferred vendors based on technology types.

The Impact You Will Have

You will be a champion driving the external manufacturing that enables equal access to branded medicines at radically lower prices.
