Our client, one of the world’s largest communications consultancies, is looking for an experienced consumer health Account Director to join their award-winning team.

The role entails working across a range of well-known consumer healthcare brands and campaigns, at a UK and pan-European level.  You will have a strong background in consumer health and wellbeing brands, and ideally have exposure to managing the communications for over-the-counter medicines. You will also need an understanding and an appreciation of the challenging regulatory environment that exists with these brands.  A good understanding of the changing role of the pharmacist and other HCPs that interact directly with brands would be highly advantageous.

The ideal candidate will be a confident self-starter who understands the consumer health arena with the ability to help shape and support the consumer health offering. A good understanding of how to apply FMCG thinking to consumer health brands would also be very useful. As this is quite a diverse role you will also need to be flexible in your approach to work with both a consumer team and a healthcare team, as well as those different audiences. You must be conversant with PAGB guidelines.

In return you will have the opportunity to demonstrate your passion and interest for consumer health brands and clients and have the opportunity to work on innovative campaigns that deliver great results. You will also be a great mentor with the ability to provide support and guidance to a fantastically passionate team who love their work.
