Are you an experienced professional with a broad knowledge in regulatory affairs? Do you like leading a wide variety of projects and taking responsibility into your own hands? Do you enjoy working in dynamic cross functional teams? Do you have excellent time management skills, as well as an ability to communicate, negotiate and influence? If the answer to these questions is yes, then we would like to hear from you.

We are looking to recruit a problem-solver who understands how regulatory affairs (in healthcare / consumer sectors) operate, and can bring an innovative approach to managing regulatory activities in regions outside the European Union for Philip Morris International (PMI) NCPs.


Philip Morris Products S.A. is seeking talented professionals to join our Regulatory Affairs NCP team, within the Reduced Risk Products (RRP*) division, in our state-of-the-art facilities in Neuchâtel, Switzerland.  PMI’s success as a company depends on a talented and diverse workplace: we are the first multinational company in Switzerland to be certified as an equal pay employer for men and women. If you are a qualified candidate, we urge you to apply.

The objective of PMI’s RRP team is to develop and assess products with the potential to reduce the risks of smoking-related diseases. This project is at the core of our business: our aim is that one day all adult smokers who otherwise wouldn’t quit will switch to what we call reduced-risk products, or RRPs.

*Reduced Risk Products (“RRPs”) is the term we use to refer to products with the potential to reduce individual risk and population harm in comparison to smoking cigarettes. PMI’s RRPs are in various stages of development and commercialization, and we are conducting extensive and rigorous scientific studies to determine whether we can support claims for such products of reduced exposure to harmful and potentially harmful constituents in smoke, and ultimately claims of reduced disease risk, when compared to smoking cigarettes. Before making any such claims, we will rigorously evaluate the full set of data from the relevant scientific studies to determine whether they substantiate reduced exposure or risk. Any such claims may also be subject to government review and authorization, as is the case in the USA today
