Health Communications Consultant

PR & Comms

Ref: 67Monday 17 February 2020

 
Our client is a fully integrated international communications consultancy trusted by some of the highest profile organisations, governments and individuals in the world.
 
Their health team devises and implements communications and public affairs programmes for both UK and EU/global clients.
 
They have a team of specialists all with different comms backgrounds which means they’re able to select the best people to work on specific bits of business, depending on our client’s needs.
 
Globally, they typically work across strategic consultancy and message development, corporate communications, media relations, media training, issues and crisis management, digital and social media, integrated campaigning, creative campaigns, patient and professional engagement, market access / patient education and disease awareness.
 
In addition to this, across the UK they also support Health Technology Appraisal communications, political outreach and select committee training.
 
As an established Consultant your experience to date should lean more towards global communications, with expertise in media relations, advocacy building, and creative campaigning. Experience in global health is a bonus.
 
You will also have strong experience across the pharmaceutical and health sector and can speak eloquently to pharma brand communications and the drug life cycle. This should include experience of supporting teams who are drafting pharmaceutical product and disease awareness material, providing reference packs and facilitating approvals, generating media coverage, supporting the running of public events, and managing political and/or stakeholder relationships (Key Opinion Leaders and Patient Groups) for a diverse range of clients and therapeutic areas.
 
You will have a solid understanding of the way the NHS is structured, the drug approval and Health Technology Assessment (HTA) processes. An understanding of local European country approval processes and HTA equivalent is a bonus.
 
In return, the right candidate will receive a competitive salary and generous benefits.
