Account Director - (Global Ad Agency / Healthcare) - London  (Closing Date: 26/10/2014)

An Account Director / AD with a strong focus towards the Healthcare sector is needed to join one of the UK’s largest and most successful integrated marketing communications agencies. This role can be based in either Manchester or London (with frequent trips to the North West).

Forming part of a worldwide agency network that spans 300 cities across 125 countries you will join a global marketing communications agency that transforms brands and grows businesses, large and small, on a national and international scale. Their Manchester agency (SK10) employs around 290 people and is looking for an AD / Account Director to work on one of the agency’s largest accounts, a global healthcare / pharmaceutical brand.

Combining a passion for creativity, strategy and science you will form part of a truly integrated health and wellbeing team who work on campaigns spanning advertising, digital, internal comms, exhibitions and much more.  On a day to day basis you’ll be talking to the client, directing and managing a team of account staff and working with in-house specialists to define and develop key messaging and creative on all integrated campaigns. Expect juicy creative projects where you will have complete autonomy to make your mark!

To qualify... You should be an experienced and very credible Healthcare Communications Account Director capable of taking control of an extremely large client.  As a guideline your CV should show:

  • An excellent understanding of the pharmaceutical / healthcare industry (gained within an agency or client side – medcomms, pharma);
  • You know your stuff in terms of the pharmaceutical industry, regulatory requirements, ABPI;
  • The ability to take ownership of great creative projects, pulling teams of creative people together in order to deliver an excellent end result;
  • Willingness to travel within Europe (2-3 days per month);
  • You are comfortable working at both a strategic level or rolling your sleeves up as and when the need arises;
  • The ability to inspire and lead a team of direct reports;
  • Confidence, strong communication skills and the natural ability to build relationships.

Any exposure to the digital industry would be advantageous as would a Life Science degree.

In return expect an agency with a unique culture and working environment that really is hard to beat.  Expect to be able to choose where you work - London (with frequent trips up north) or just South of Manchester where they have a 9 acre campus that includes a subsidised Bistro, free car parking, free access to an onsite gym and an outdoor heated pool! They've even got allotments for you to grow your own veg! Get in touch...
