Contract Type

This major healthcare practice in a top global PR firm is one of the true leaders in the healthcare communications sector and as a result of significant new business wins over the last two years, has made a significant number of new hires. The practice is currently about 55-strong and divided into four specialist teams covering the full spectrum in health communications. The practice works for many of the leading pharma companies on a wide range of therapy areas including Infectious diseases, oncology, immunology, virology, sexual health and cardiovascular disease.

They are currently looking for an established Associate Director level candidate for a long-term contract, starting in February and running until the end of the year. This will essentially be to cover a maternity and the role is primarily to work in the pharma team and manage one large UK account in addition to a significant international account.

Other campaigns the practice covers include a mix of global, Pan-European and UK and their global campaigns, in particular, have won several industry awards.  As this is a long-term contract, the offer of a fix-term salary as opposed to a day rate is preferable and there will also be a very viable opportunity for the role becoming permanent later in the year if the successful candidate so wishes.

You will have the opportunity to work in stunning offices based in central London and be part of an established, supportive and driven senior management team.
