After its launch nearly three years ago, the team is now around 12 strong and has developed extensive organic growth with a major global client in addition to recent new business wins with well-known brands particularly in the food health & nutrition areas.

Although part of a large healthcare practice, the team operates quite independently and has a boutique style, yet has the added advantage of being part of a broad healthcare offering. The team consists of highly intelligent and experienced consumer health PR experts all with a passion for OTC consultation, nutrition and wellbeing. They have excellent consumer and consumer health media relations aswell as strong HCP / KOL contacts. As the team has grown quite significantly over the last few years, cultural fit is of great importance so the successful hire must be someone who has a desire to be part of a new and growing team and who is prepared to be a significant player in its development.

This role will suit someone from either another network agency or a specialist boutique firm which has a great reputation in consumer health. You must have a strong background in consumer health / consumer lifestyle with a good understanding and passion for food & nutrition and have solid experience in line management. A highly competitive salary is on offer along with a superb benefits package and you will have the opportunity to work in new outstanding offices based in central London.
