Director, Compliance

Verona Pharma
Posted Mar 21
Full Time
Raleigh, North Carolina

The Company:

Our mission is to improve the health and quality of life for the millions of people affected by chronic respiratory diseases. We do this through the development of our first-in-class molecule, ensifentrine. Ensifentrine has the potential to provide relief for millions of patients suffering from a variety of respiratory conditions including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), cystic fibrosis (CF), non-CF bronchiectasis and asthma. Our focus is driven by our desire to ensure that innovative and differentiated molecules can reach these patients.

The experience of the Verona team, and its highly effective leadership allows us to challenge the status quo in drug development and commercialization. Verona provides a professional, diverse, and inclusive working environment where our employees thrive. We are driven to succeed by our desire to help those dealing with the chronic progressive nature of respiratory diseases. We offer you the opportunity to help create a new future for those people living with respiratory diseases.

The Opportunity:

Verona Pharma is currently recruiting a Director, Compliance to join our team, reporting to our Vice President, Compliance. In the role of Director, Compliance, you will be responsible for directing various elements of Verona’s compliance program and transparency reporting efforts. You will also be responsible for partnering with cross-functional teams to provide guidance on risks related to Anti-Kickback Statute, False Claims Act, and other relevant regulations that may help guide new business strategies, tactics, and interactions.

Remote working and flexibility are important parts of our culture at Verona. However, we are looking for candidates based in the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area as you will periodically be required to go into the Raleigh office for key meetings, training, and other activities as needed.

We know our employees are our most valuable asset, and our culture conveys that. Trust, accountability, and efficiency are core values that drive our working environment. We have a unique opportunity to build a company that will bring a first-in-class medication to chronic respiratory disease patients with significant unmet needs. We also offer a competitive benefits package, including generous PTO, to support the health and happiness of our staff.
