Associate Director / Director (Health Policy /Public Affairs) - Specialist Health Policy Consultancy

The new driving force in UK & EU health policy communications is looking to add a new senior hire to further strengthen its senior management team. This specialist consultancy which launched in 2013 has already gained a large and extremely impressive client roster which includes several leading pharmaceutical organisations, well-known charities and NGOs, medical associations and consumer health brands.

With a strong leadership team who are well-known health policy experts, this is a very exciting consultancy to be part of as the UK & EU health landscape continues to change rapidly. The consultancy positions itself to its clients as a partner to assist and advise on making big impacts for patients and for their client’s reputations. Services include campaigning, clinical advocacy, market access communications, media relations, public affairs, stakeholder engagement and mobilisation, issues and crisis management, policy analysis, policy development and strategy, reputation management, risk analysis and training.

This new senior role would suit someone at Associate Director or Director level who is a strong health policy and healthcare public affairs specialist.  Experience from in-house or a consultancy background will be of interest although due to the level of seniority, talent with at least some consultancy experience whether it is current or at a previous stage in their career would be desirable. The successful hire will possess an excellent track record in health policy communications and have a strong understanding into the UK health landscape and its national and regional challenges in addition to an interest and insight into international health policy / public affairs.  A thorough understanding of policy issues within the pharmaceutical industry is a must and a passion for new business, leadership and team management responsibilities (including the idea of nurturing and developing new and young talent) is essential.

Having already won a number of industry awards in its first three years, joining this consultancy at this time is exceptionally exciting as the successful hire will be a genuine part of the firm’s very apparent success story as it continues to grow and develop. You will have the opportunity to work in offices in central London alongside highly intelligent people who are experts in their field. More importantly, you will be part of a firm that has already become a major and significant player in this field. An excellent and competitive salary is on offer including a bonus scheme and benefits.
