Senior Consultant for Research & Development Practice Area

Accelerate your personal and professional development as a Senior Business Consultant at one of Europe’s leading life science consultancies.

BASE life science is a business and technology consulting company founded in 2007. Working exclusively within the life science industry, BASE life science works very closely with the customer – in most cases even on behalf of the customer.

From our offices in Denmark, Switzerland, Germany, France, UK and Spain, we serve customers across Europe. Our clear focus on Life Science – based on our deep understanding of the local market – enables us to deliver tailored solutions that deliver significant value and lasting impact.

BASE life science partners with industry-leading solution providers, including Veeva, Salesforce and IQVIA and help to carve business value from digital platforms and data.


The position

As a Senior Business Consultant, you will take a key role in customer projects, which are placed at the very top of their strategic agendas. In these projects you will act as the link between business and IT and be able to exploit your skills within problem-solving, digital strategy, agile, innovation, business process optimization, or similar. Moreover, you will have the opportunity to join cross-professional teams and work with highly specialized colleagues within the life science domain.

All projects are unique, but as a Senior Business Consultant you are expected to drive:

  • Facilitation of workshops (requirement gathering, feature prioritization, process development, etc.)
  • Analysis and benchmarking of IT and market trends
  • Development and documentation of IT and business processes
  • Coordination between cross-functional project activities (project planning, activities tracking, status meetings)
  • Development of digital strategies
  • Facilitation of innovation sprints
  • Advisory to clients on navigating the digital landscape within the life science industry

As a person, you are curious and possess a thirst for solving the customers’ most difficult problems.  You know how to manage a tricky project with many stakeholders and hold excellent analytical, communication, and interpersonal skills.

As a minimum, it is expected that you:

  • Hold a relevant master’s degree in e.g. business, finance, economics, mathematics, information technology, or engineering with above-average academic achievements
  • Have +3 years of experience within a consulting company or similar
  • Have experience in applying meaningful technologies, methodologies, and techniques to solve business problems
  • Master English at a professional level as it is our and our customers’ company language


It is not a requirement to have work experience in life science, rather, you should be able to identify with the following characteristics:  

  • Eagerness to learn: you have a proactive mindset and acquire knowledge quickly
  • Quality mindset: you take responsibility for your work, accept that mistakes happen, and know that sharing and learning from them is important
  • Excellent communication skills: you find it natural to facilitate conversations, enforce structure, and like breaking down complex matters into concrete, understandable pieces
  • Driven: you are highly motivated, confident, and ready to make a difference
  • Team-player: you enjoy being part of a team, know how to read a room, and connect with new people easily

  • We encourage flexibility and trust our employees
