Our core values—integrity, collaboration, passion, pursuit of excellence and innovation—define our corporate practices and demonstrate our commitment to our mission of improving patients' lives.

    We have a diverse portfolio of products and product candidates with a focus in the areas of sleep, haematology/oncology, pain and other. In EU/RoW, Jazz Pharmaceuticals markets Erwinase® (asparaginase Erwinia chrysanthemi) for Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia and Defitelio® (defibrotide) for severe Veno-Occlusive Disease. VyxeosTM (daunorubicin and cytarabine liposome for injection)​ is expected to receive marketing authorisation in Europe in the near future for the treatment of high risk Acute Myeloid Leukaemia.

    The successful candidate will have overall responsibility for leading the development and execution of the haematology and oncology brand strategy and operational marketing programmes in the UK and Ireland, collaborating with cross functional partners across the organisation.
