Executive Creative Director
Paris, France

Bigger isn’t always better. Except when bigger means you get to be part of one of the world’s most epically humungous network of health and wellness experts. And oooooh what a network it is. Spanning six continents, 20 countries and comprising of 1,600 employees, the team share a goal that we think is pretty nice – they all want to improve the health of humanity. Which is a downright fantastic shared goal. And d’ya know what else is downright fantastic? The team spirit, the benefits package and the work you’ll be involved in. Committed to making life that little bit better for worldwide patients, this global giant has maintained a friendly feel that is quite exceptional. And did we mention that the role is in Paris? Yes PARIS! Do we really need to sell this any further? So before you throw your hat into the ring, do read on to check the role description and the person they’d like to secure. It’s useful info that might just elevate you above the other candidates. Ooh la la!

The role:
If creativity (either art-based or words-based) runs through your blood and you’re ready to take on your most senior role yet, then this is where your search ends. Reporting directly to the President (of the agency, not the United States. That’d be just weird) you will lead the team to deliver exceptional work, maintaining their Parisian reputation for creative brilliance. And while your creative direction will be undisputable, you will also be a natural with the clients, helping them to imagine your vision, and inspiring trust in your decisions. As a member of the leadership team you will ensure that the creative team are facilitating and enabling the most cutting-edge integrated results across all disciplines, with your seasoned eye being instrumental in shaping the vision and direction of the agency. Whether you are getting to grips with some seriously industry-leading scientific developments, upskilling your colleagues, helping them to win business or simplifying a concept for a wider audience, this is a multi-layered role that deserves an exceptional individual. Just to be clear, this role is open to both writer-based ECD’s AND Art Directors. If you’re a writer you’ll need to be outrageously good with words, and if you’re an Art Director, you’ll need to be proficient in the Adobe suite including InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator. Obvs.


You will:
• Be a bilingual (French-English) boundary-pusher. Someone who isn’t afraid to jump right in and expose yourself to new
challenges. Because being ‘comfortable’ doesn’t necessarily inspire the types of results that this agency will expect.
• Have solid knowledge and experience in healthcare communications, with the capacity to combine your natural creativity with
a genuine understanding of the science behind what your clients need to convey. So basically, clever and creative. The whole
darn package.
• Need a decent knowledge of pharma regulations (both global and local) with the capacity to shape the team’s thinking to work
within these regulations.
• Be adept at producing award-winning work or thinking.
• Enjoy working with, and commissioning a range of creatives such as film makers, animators, production companies,
illustrators and photographers.
• Have knockout communication skills with the ability to get the absolute best out of a truly brilliant team.
