I've been working in the Healthcare Compliance Operations Group (HCC-OG), which is part of the Compliance Organisation in the Legal Department in Germany, since June 2012. Part of our task is to ensure compliance with statutory rules and regulations when working with our many partners in healthcare. This means that we establish compliance processes, monitor them and develop them further.
The HCC-OG team currently comprises 14 people including four lawyers and nine consultants. There is a very open, friendly and genuine atmosphere in our team. In short, we simply like working together. Team spirit is very strong and very important to us. Business partners include Marketing & Sales and CHC Market Access. We advise them on all legal matters concerning healthcare compliance.
My typical working day at Boehringer Ingelheim
I start the morning with a coffee and my emails. We regularly have team meetings in the mornings too.
In the afternoon, I continue taking care of the day's business and deal with legal requests. This is also often the time when I agree new projects with business partners, etc.
