McCann Health Medical Communications

Account Executive

Recruiting for an Autumn 2020 start date

McCann Health Medical Communications is a group of leading global medical communications agencies. We work on some of the most innovative global healthcare products and pride ourselves on our long term relationships with some of the world's top pharmaceutical companies. This is a great opportunity for someone to be able to join an established and progressive team supporting a global network of agencies and clients.

We now have an opportunity for an Account Executive to join our team. It’s an exciting time due to the continued growth of our business, and the individual will assist the account teams with the management and delivery of the full range of medical communications services.

The successful individual will be responsible for:

 - Independently managing and delivering small projects, and supporting account team members with the delivery and tracking of larger, more complex projects.
- Arranging internal and external meetings, including any event management required for larger external meetings.
- Tracking progress and updating the status of multiple projects, utilising client databases where required.
- Working with the client account teams to help develop project specifications, budget estimates and project reconciliations.
- Effectively managing account finances to ensure maximum recovery on projects.
- Demonstrating thorough knowledge of invoicing procedures and clients’ payment processes, assisting with timely invoicing.
- Maintaining files of up-to-date financial information for all projects.

We are looking for a confident and assertive individual with excellent administrative and organisational skills, with an aptitude for finance. We need someone who is happy to take responsibility for financial processes, as well as the communication skills to work across account teams to ensure effective project management practices, as well as liaising effectively with clients. Previous experience in healthcare communications or the pharmaceutical industry would be advantageous but is not essential.

If you enjoy working as part of a team and have a 'can do' attitude, we would like to hear from you. We offer a great benefits package, a flexible working culture and a commitment to career development.

As we position ourselves for a future of increased competition and disruption, we’re accelerating beyond merely acknowledging differences. Our philosophy is that consistent practices and deliberate actions that foster an inclusive culture, unleash the creative power of our talent and our work. We call this Conscious Inclusion.
