If you’ve got healthcare advertising agency experience as a planner, perhaps from a pharmaceutical marketing background as you need to be highly scientific, combined with a genuine flair for strategic planning, we need to talk. One of the world’s most famous advertising agencies needs a senior planner on brands and campaigns targeting healthcare professionals and patients.

A revolutionary set up with a global brand needs a senior planner who can bring strategic insight, analysis and knowledge to their clients’ brands, providing a genuine consultancy service. NB: this is not a run-of-the-mill implementation agency; they take a dynamic approach using cutting-edge brand strategy tools. The senior planner needs to be able to understand the science behind pharmaceutical brands in order to talk knowledgeably to doctors. Therefore the senior strategic planner will have had plenty of experience in a healthcare agency, probably in a scientific or medical capacity. You’ll support end-to-end projects from unpicking the brief through to workshop moderation, strategic development, analytics and reporting.

A creative background would be ideal and RX experience is essential. The senior planner will report to the head of planning in a sizable department, so need to have been a specialist strategic planner in a healthcare advertising agency for at least 3 years. As part of a global network with a sophisticated strategic planning function, there are plenty of opportunities to grow and develop into the role and beyond.

It goes without saying that you will be naturally curious, a problem solver, passionate about healthcare, able to communicate complex ideas to any audience and used to leading interactions with client strategy and medical teams.

NB: this is a full-time, permanent role. As long as you are based in the UK they are very flexible about how often you do or don’t come into the offices. They reward well and the benefits include unlimited paid time off.
