My client, one of the world’s biggest pharmaceutical companies, is looking for an Associate Director, to join its busy brand comms team. You will play a pivotal role in communicating the company’s strategy and ambitions to external and internal stakeholders, including key opinion leaders and patients, worldwide.

You will be responsible for the development and execution of effective global communications strategies for designated disease areas and brands. You will develop and tell compelling stories to bring to life life-changing medicines in a way that resonates with a wide range of key audiences including the medical community, academics and researchers, patients, partners, the financial community, media and employees.

On a day to day basis you will:
• Be accountable for identification of Corporate Affairs priorities and development of global communications strategy, planning, as well as setting out and tracking KPIs for these priorities.
• Drive an integrated approach to milestones, news flow and activity planning.
• Be responsible for leading issues preparedness and management to protect brands’ and company reputation.
• Develop and refresh a compelling narrative for priority brand/disease areas with clear messages and proof points to build awareness and confidence among key stakeholder groups.
• Develop impactful media relations strategies, working closely with science units and key markets.
• Lead the development of brand/disease area materials across channels (e.g. press releases, digital/social content, internal communications, multi stakeholder briefings, information for quarterly financial reporting, etc.).
• Set KPIs for global communications activity and work with other business units and markets to ensure successful local implementation.
• Develop and implement timely, impactful and content rich internal communications programmes for designated brands/disease areas to enhance employee engagement and brand awareness.
• Be responsible for effective use of internal and external resources.

This role would suit someone with substantial experience of healthcare communications gained in-house or at a global agency. You will have an established track-record of developing and delivering impactful, strategic and content rich communications programmes and proactive stakeholder management with demonstrable measures of success. Strong media relations, including in digital and social media, is a must.
