Account Manager, Health

Location: Boston MA US

Job Category: Public Relations

Job Description:

Our team sits at the intersection of profound change in health. Big data, personalized care, digital medicine—it’s all a tidal wave of implications and opportunity. Even better, the new world of healthcare puts patients at the center. We are skillful guides for these innovation rides because we are equally adept at translating what’s coming out of the lab as we are navigating regulatory and economic hurdles. And we never lose sight of the human side of the story. Meaning, we make clients’ stories live and breathe. We give them a beating heart.

 

WE provides a breadth of communications services to clients across sectors including consumer health and wellness, health IT, medical devices, pharmaceuticals and life sciences. We develop innovative programs that reach and influence physicians, advocates, patients, regulators, policy makers, payors and the consumers at the center of it all.

 

Our vision for differentiation is to serve clients that deliver innovations that will improve lives, address current limitations of healthcare delivery, and contribute to a healthcare system that is more accountable, more cost effective, more sustainable, and offers personalized approaches to care.

 

We are looking for an Account Manager to join our team. The ideal candidate is an experienced communicator who thrives in an environment where passion, creativity and curiosity are valued. We are looking for someone who has excellent relationships with healthcare journalists, loves AP style and excellent grammar, understands social media channels and knows how to motivate junior staff for results. Candidates must have a passion for client service, staff development and networking with a keen interest to play a leadership role supporting the success of our growing health practice.
