People Experience Marketing Head

People Experience Marketing Head
125,000 unique individuals work at Novartis, all with different needs and aspirations, aligned to a single inspirational purpose; to Reimagine Medicine for millions of patients around the world.

As our Head of People Experience Marketing you will be vital to the Novartis global People Strategy: positively shaping, celebrating and amplifying all of our Associate's employee experiences and inspiring every individual to feel ‘unbossed’, to find and achieve their purpose, to be their best selves every day. The moments that matter to our Associates come from their first impression as a job applicant to their lasting memories as Alumni: being inspired and curious, empowered and recognized, and being supported professionally and personally all of their time.

You will create and implement a successful internal marketing strategy that’s meaningful to our Associates and will inspire our culture to be the best it can be every day: developing and launching solutions in a way that lands the People experience alongside marketing existing solutions and benefits to reinforce it.

You will have a key role in the implementation of our People Strategy, working closely with and inspiring leaders and teams across the Enterprise including People & Organization (HR) and other employee support functions such as Communications and IT.

This is a new and significant position for Novartis: you’ll create an internal People Experience Marketing team and hire 2 Marketing Partners that are similarly passionate about our Associates being our customers. Data and analytics will support you to shape the internal marketing plan and measure impact and effectiveness of solutions developed and implemented for the optimum People experience.
