Head of Healthcare PR
London

Cooooeeeee! Fancy a big juicy challenge – with some really top-notch colleagues who are outrageously fun? Of course you do… (and if you don’t, then look away!) Our client is a strategic communications agency, and they’re a thoroughly inventive and social bunch. We’ll come back to their work in a minute, but first… oh, what a workplace they offer! From their Christmas and summer parties to their inspiration days, sports clubs, discounted gym membership, charity partnerships and pub nights, they’ll take care of your physical and emotional wellbeing. Fancy stretching your brain? Then they’ve got that covered too with their learning academy where you can sign up for courses, workshops, coaching and mentoring. So we’ve ascertained that they’re downright ace, but what of their work? Well, they’re in cahoots with the world’s leading health and life sciences companies, patient organisations and professional bodies. They’re really strong in health communications (particularly public affairs), but they’re keen to develop their PR capabilities. Well sound the klaxon, because here’s your opening! They want to make the most of their clients and the considerable projects they can offer – and that’s where you come in…

The role
In a nutshell, this is an opportunity for you to grow your own practice. While they have PR people, they want to grow bandwidth and make themselves a real force to be reckoned with. And you will be at the helm of that ship. Working on product launches, advocacy, media, branded and unbranded comms all the usual PR challenges. You’ll be encouraged to hunt down new business opportunities – and you’ll get a ‘new business’ bonus on top of your annual bonus when you do. Yay! You’ll also have lots of existing clients to get going with initially, so you won’t have to start from scratch. They’ve already got a team of 32 in place, but you’ll have the budget to hire your own people – so if you’ve got some great contacts in the industry, this is your chance to poach them (not like an egg, just in the sense that you can fill this agency with people you really like). Now here’s the real killer – you won’t have any complex financial reporting and red tape! Just all the fun of building a sustainable business, without any of the usual stress. Now that’s a sexy proposition.

You will:
• Be a health media PR guru. A walking, talking encyclopaedia of everything your clients would expect you to know.
• Be a leader, a motivator, an inspirer (in other words, you’ll get the best results out of your people).
• Be able to spot a business opportunity from a mile off.
• Have the type of networking capabilities that will reel in new business by the bucket-load.
• Have oodles of ideas about the future of healthcare PR.
