A truly excellent opportunity has arisen in this fast-growing specialist health communications agency for an Account Director or Senior Account Director level candidate. Although part of large global network firm, this independently run agency has the freedom and advantages of being fully in charge of its own story and yet has the full backing of one of the most recognisable names in global communications.

In attracting a strong new leadership team at the beginning of 2014, this firm (originally known for its award- winning medical education offering), has, over the last twelve months, expanded the business and developed an excellent PR offering specialising in brand communications, corporate communications and issues and crisis management. In winning a range of impressive new business wins, the firm has secured a small team of sought after and top-tier PR talent during this time.

The firm predominantly provides high-level and award-winning campaigns, both globally and domestically covering a very wide spectrum of healthcare communications - due to continued growth plans for 2016 in addition to client demand, the agency is looking to take on a new hire ideally at Account Director level who will bring a solid track record in healthcare PR in addition to having a strong entrepreneurial nature.

Although the successful hire may have specialist expertise within healthcare PR, a good understanding across the spectrum of healthcare communications will be highly advantageous. As new business opportunities continue to present themselves, the team can maximise on your experience across the business (whilst providing you with a broad range of opportunities too). Added to this, in being an experienced healthcare PR professional, you will be a significant part of this developing area of the business and help drive and shape it – you will have excellent support from and work closely with the agency MD (already a significant name within healthcare PR) and the Director of PR and you will find yourself in an environment that will provide you with limitless opportunities to develop your skills and experience.

This is a very exciting agency to be part of and is developing a buzz in being one of the firms to look out for over the next twelve months.

You will have the opportunity of working in fantastic offices in central London and can expect to be rewarded with an excellent and competitive salary with exceptional company benefits on top.
