Job Details

This independently owned agency delivers medical communications campaigns with science at the heart of everything they do. Working across a range of large pharmaceutical clients through to medical device companies and biotech start ups; they deliver everything from pre-clinical trial stage to post launch. Clients are mainly Europe and US based and projects can range from technical manuscripts to ad boards and symposia; abstract management and internal comms pieces.

Due to an increase in business and a growing demand there is now an opportunity for an Account Director to come on board and provide account-level expertise and leadership to the business and clients. As a member of the management team this is a senior role with responsibilities including:

  • Actively participating in and contributing to management meetings

  • Being involved in discussions and decisions that affect the day to day management direction and success of the business

  • Account management and development including networking across accounts and maximising opportunities

  • Leading strategic discussions with clients and colleagues related to budget and overall delivery

  • Developing and maintaining strong client relationships

  • Taking responsibility and ownership of delivery of high-quality medical communications material

  • Provide day-to-day direction and leadership related to project delivery, including leading on specific more strategic projects when required

  • Ensuing projects stay within scope and on budget.

  • Providing leadership and direction to the team

  • Ensuring procedures and policies across the team and encouraging good working practices

  • Ensuring good working relationships with clients, external suppliers, external authors and experts

  • Financial management including overseeing accurate budgetary and project tracking

  • Line management development of a team

Candidates must come from a medical communications agency and have a proven background of account and client management. Candidates must have experience of leading scientific client pitches and proposals and exposure to working across a broad portfolio of projects would be preferred. Client facing skills are essential and ideally candidates will have had previous ownership of accounts and / or client relationships (and financial accountability for these) as well as a solid understanding of the regulated healthcare environment. Experience of working in therapy areas including immunology and urology would be an added benefit, as would experience of managing teams. A scientific background is preferable but is not a pre-requisite for the role.

In return for your commitment you will have the opportunity to join a dynamic and growing company, and make a real difference to the business!
