Planning Director, London – RX Healthcare Advertising

Idea-centricity. It’s a thing y’know? An actual real-life thing. Admittedly it might not make it into the Oxford English Dictionary, but it blummin’ well should. Because this agency – a whopper in terms of size, scale and brilliance – is putting idea-centricity on the map. It’s the basic concept that every piece of work should be based on a creative idea – and then everything else follows on. So, we’ve ascertained that this agency is both delightfully creative and grounded in common sense – but what of their working culture? As you’d imagine, it’s a total hot-spot of creativity, innovation and loveliness. The benefits package is juicy, and they’re keen to help every member of the team grow and develop – so your future will be taken care of too. And as part of a health network that has an expansive global reach, there’s really no saying where in the world you might end up (if that’s what tickles your fancy), who you might end up working with and what opportunities might land in your lap. If you can think big, then you’ll be right at home here.

The role:
This is an agency that prides itself on delivering truly integrated solutions – and you will be at the heart of that in your planning guru capacity. Helping some of the industry’s best health and wellness brands play a meaningful role in people’s lives, you will ensure every strategic output gives your clients a distinct advantage over their rivals. Working with the Head of Strategy and the leadership team, you will help your clients understand the current market and their target audience’s behaviours and beliefs – ultimately giving rise to some of the most imaginative, bold and ambitious healthcare concepts this side of the universe. This is a role which will truly keep you on your toes – from overseeing and conducting research to developing insights into scientifically complex therapy areas, you’ll ensure you’re always at the top of your game – so that your clients can be at the top of theirs. You’ll build the team’s strategic planning processes, identify business opportunities, champion innovative thinking through bespoke workshops and ensure every creative output is aligned with what the clients want and need. In short, you’ll be the epitome of planning brilliance – and an inspirational leader who gets the most out of their team.

You will:
• Be a planning god/goddess with international and multi-market level experience. A worldwide god/goddess if you will.
• Have at least 9 years of ‘top tier’ marketing communications expertise under your belt – and a significant whack of that will be
in planning for health brands.
• Leadership kudos. Think charisma. Think inspirational. Think epic people.
• Be loved by your former clients. If they can sing your praises, then read on…
• … because you will also be loved by colleagues. People who can testify to what a brilliant person and all-round communicator
you are.
• Be a quick learner – with stonking cross medium creative awareness and a good understanding of new technologies.
• Ideally have an understanding of consumer health planning in addition to prescription brand (rx) planning.
