Are you tired of your stereotypical agency role and looking for something different? Do you crave more autonomy, with the chance to really make something your own? If you answered yes, this could be the ideal role for you…

We are looking for a Healthcare Director to join this prestigious independent communications agency and grow out a division. However, this isn’t a role where you’ll be doing all the hard work to launch something from scratch. The agency already has a well- reputed health team that focuses on public affairs (70%) and corporate comms (30%), undertaking work for the usual suspects in big pharma, medicinal cannabis, gyms, the NHS and pro bono charity/project work, so there’s plenty of variety. The agency feel there’s a fantastic opportunity for someone to use this as a springboard to bring in new clients and build the more traditional pharma/healthcare communications side but also organically grow this type of work by cross-selling into the existing client base.

The opportunity here is huge as whilst the job title is “Director” you’ll effectively be the head of your new division, with the chance to really shine and take home the glory.

More About The Agency:

This agency is one of the largest and most prestigious independent communications agencies (around 70) with specialist teams across public affairs, corporate communications, healthcare and sustainability.

During the pandemic, they have had no redundancies, no staff on furlough and have pressed on with progression and promotions for staff, so we can confidently say this is a safe, secure and successful ship to be joining!

The culture is a real selling point of this agency: everyone genuinely gets on and regular socials are held. The founders of the agency interview everyone from JAE right to MD level to ensure that everyone is a cultural fit. There’s no office politics, overly hierarchal environment or late hours. Everyone has a bespoke development plan, with plenty of training and agency wide lunch and learns that take place. If you deserve to be promoted you absolutely will be, the team are all for promoting and developing talent quickly. The result of this is that the agency has a very low turnover rate and people stay for a long time, which always speaks for itself.

We have a full JD but some key attributes of the successful candidate will be:

  • You’ll have proven agency experience gained in a healthcare communications team or healthcare specialist communications agency
  • Either an ambitious Associate Director ready for a step up or a fairly new Director
  • Ambitious and entrepreneurial with the desire to grow and build a division
  • Proven track record of new business success and organic growth
