Business Unit Director – Healthcare Advertising
London

There’s some pretty good creative healthcare agencies out there. And then there is our client. A proper knee-trembling, blow-your-socks-off, go-big-or-go-home type creative healthcare agency that is nothing short of sensational. They put the patient experience at the heart of every brand strategy (as any decent healthcare agency should), but then they find opportunities to connect with both healthcare professionals and patients that other agencies may miss. Yay for them! And the nice thing here, is that they make a tangible difference to people’s lives in the process. Double yay! They’re working with some pretty interesting clients, and they’re generating the type of attention that well, demands your attention. So if you’re up for the challenge of a great agency with a fan-flipping-tastic work culture and a competitive benefits package, then do shout out. Because roles like this are snapped up quickly… and it’d be a shame to miss out now wouldn’t it?!

The role:
Let’s get straight to the nitty gritty of what you’ll be up to when you join these trailblazers. At the heart of everything, you’ll oversee the thinking, doing and goings-on of the account handling team. From shaping brand strategies to taking responsibility for the profitability, effectiveness and efficiency of the accounts in your business unit, you’ll set standards that are ambitious in their scope – and industry-leading in their creativity. Next up you’ll be the boss that dreams are made of. Knowing what each of your team ultimately want to achieve, you’ll be the motivator who helps them nail their best work yet – and the role model who inspires them to strive for even more. As the go-to person for industry-leading advice, you’ll ensure both clients and colleagues are keen to chew your ear (not literally – ouch) and you’ll have enough sass and gravitas to deliver new business and organic growth targets. Pitching will be second nature, and you’ll be an all-round business winner, people-inspirer, strategic and creative thinker and tip-top guru.

You will:
• Have significant experience of running successful teams that vary in size.
• Plenty of ambition. Oodles of it in fact.
• Be emotionally intelligent. Y’know, you’ll actually ‘get’ what they’re trying to achieve, and what their clients are telling you.
• Be a natural leader. An inspirational sort of person who commands loyalty and respect.
• Have solid people skills. You’ll know how to connect, how to be a trusted advisor, and how to be a mentor.
• Be financially smart – and know how to win business.
• So you’ll also have a proven track-record of successful pitch scenarios.
