Sr. Associate, Regulatory Operations

Location London, United Kingdom
BioMarin is the world leader in delivering therapeutics that provide meaningful advances to patients who live with serious and life-threatening rare genetic diseases. We target diseases that lack effective therapies and affect relatively small numbers of patients, many of whom are children. These conditions are often inherited, difficult to diagnose, progressively debilitating and have few, if any, treatment options. BioMarin will continue to focus on advancing therapies that are the first or best of their kind.

BioMarin’s Research & Development group is responsible for everything from research and discovery to post-market clinical development. Research & Development involves all bench and clinical research and the associated groups that support those endeavors. Our teams work on developing first-in-class and best-in-class therapeutics that provide meaningful advances to patients who live with rare diseases. Come join our team and make a meaningful impact on patients’ lives. 


Since its foundation in 1997, BioMarin has brought 6 products to market, with 7 more in the pipeline, over half a billion dollars of revenue and a global footprint in 40 countries. We are a recognized industry leader in rare disease development.

Consistent with our origins is an entrepreneurial thread, making us a dynamic pharmaceutical company with passionate employees, creating innovative strategies in order to bring lifesaving treatments to patients as quickly as possible. Our patients are at the heart of everything we stand for and we seek individuals for whom significance and contribution to improving the patients' lives is a key driver.

Our Regulatory Affairs organization, made up of a team of over 100 dedicated professionals, continues to grow.
