Senior Director – Healthcare Agency – Brighton

Picture this. An office on a white sand beach. A palm tree swaying in the breeze. And a pina colada/chilled beer/mango juice on your desk. Sounds like the most idyllic office ever doesn’t it? Sadly, it’s also a bit on the unrealistic side of things if you’re a passionate about pursuing a career in medical education, market access or PR. But the good news is that we can offer you the next best thing. Because our client is an absolute gem. And while there might not be a white sand beach outside their office, the sea is on their doorstep, and lunchtimes spent chilling on a gloriously pebbly beach are something this agency can enjoy every single day… because heck, this corker of a role is in the divine Brighton! Say hello to windy cobbly streets, and a serious dollop of fun! Our client is part of a larger group, with over 1,000 employees globally. They’ve been named as ‘One of the Best Workplaces for Women’ more than once (though they’re also very man-friendly) and they’re on an exciting trajectory in which the Brighton office is catapulting their medical writing and PR capabilities to silly levels. There’s also a great package on offer, with flexible working hours, private medical insurance for the whole family, life assurance, an annual bonus subject to personal and company performance and more. It just gets better and better…

The role:
This is a proper humdinger of a challenge. The Brighton office offers amazing integrated medical education and PR solutions for a whole raft of interesting clients. It’s currently being run by one Director, who is looking to divide up their role once you’re in place. While they will take a focus on the operational and staff development side of the med ed business, you will focus on strategic growth and building your own client base. Following up on and leading RFP’s, you will also utilise your existing network to generate revenue for the business. While you won’t have any profit and loss responsibilities, you will have good financial acumen, ensuring that everything the team are doing is ‘billable’. You’ll also be willing to roll your sleeves up and get stuck in with producing some exceptional medical writing, while sharing your expertise with the rest of the writers – so you’ll get to be at the heart of some delightfully juicy projects. Crucially, you’ll have an eye on what the wider organisation are doing, looking for ways that you can collaborate with their other offices, ultimately bringing Brighton into the heart of the business.

You will:

Come from any relevant background! The agency are happy to build around whatever skills you’re bringing to the table, so (just for example) you could predominantly have experience in medical education, marketing communications or PR, or you could be a market access or behaviour change specialist. They’re open to all backgrounds. You will also:

• Be a Director-level individual.
• Have pharmaceutical agency experience (either current or recent past).
• Have a great network of contacts, and be up for building your own client-base – while wowing current clients with your
• Be 100% 'growth focussed'.
• Be a real people person who can motivate the team and inspire the clients – so you’ll be really collaborative too.
• Fancy being part of an epic adventure.
