You’re driven, resourceful, and above all else - remarkably smart.
You love a good challenge. You are the first to roll up your sleeves and work with relentless energy until you solve the unsolvable, beat the unbeatable and you always come out on top. Passable doesn’t cut it – you’ve got fire in your belly to learn more, do more and be more. For you, the sweetest success is shared success and you’re known for your good nature. You’ll fit right in at Syneos Health where we surround ourselves with the most talented and agile professionals in the industry, but we check our egos at the door.
The Associate Director Solution Design (SDM) role within Full-Service Commercial (FSC) is responsible for managing the overall solution development process and ensuring there is integration both within and across functions and business units. The SDM is expected to be a “player coach” who manages team members and steps in as necessary to ensure a smooth process, ensure quality control, and provide guidance and leadership to the team.
The SDM determines the initial solution design approach and the various follow-up actions needed to bridge prospective clients from an initial solution presentation to sold (i.e. awarded) work. The SDM must be comfortable communicating directly with clients and translating their stated and unstated asks into direction for how the FSC Design team will respond. Once a solution has been sold (i.e. awarded) the SDM works to transition to the Delivery team who is then responsible for executing on the solution.
The SDM works closely with different stakeholder groups both within the FSC team and across the greater Syneos Health organization. They must effectively manage team members of varying levels and experience, including direct and indirect reports.
The SDM is also responsible for defining and continuously improving operational processes that make cross-business unit collaboration and solution development easier. The expectation is that the SDM either lead or actively drive improvements in areas to which they are assigned.
Along with demonstrated initiative, uncompromised integrity and a results-oriented mindset, the ideal candidate has:

I understand that if I am made an offer of employment, it will be conditioned on my demonstration I am fully vaccinated OR I plan to initiate vaccination by my start date AND be fully vaccinated within 4 weeks of start date against the COVID-19 virus.
IMPORTANT: I understand that if the role for which I am applying requires extensive in-person contact with colleagues, health care providers, clients and other medical professionals who have stringent vaccination requirements that all Syneos Health employees with whom they partner be fully vaccinated and will not accept or consider any exemptions. I understand I can request an exemption from Syneos Health’s vaccination requirement based on a qualifying medical condition or sincerely-held religious belief. However, in the event that I successfully obtain an exemption, I understand that it is highly unlikely that I will be able to adequately perform the essential functions of this position without imposing an undue hardship on Syneos Health due to the clients’ demands.
