Senior Account Director - UK
Evoke Incisive Health
About Evoke Incisive Health
Evoke Incisive Health is a global, award-winning health policy and public affairs consultancy.
At Evoke Incisive Health we help our clients understand the fast-paced political and NHS environment and advise them on how they can cut through the noise. We are creative, ambitious and dedicated and if you are too then we can offer you a sector-leading opportunity to grow your skills and expertise. We deliver the results that matter for our clients and - ultimately - for the patients they serve.
In 2021 we joined the Evoke group, allying with healthcare PR, marketing, advertising and digital agencies to multiply the impact of healthcare communications for our clients.
What’s the job?
As a Senior Account Director, you will be an essential leader of the team working with clients across a broad range of issues and challenges, responsible for a variety of tasks and guiding the team to successful delivery. Our clients are diverse, ranging from small charities to global pharmaceutical companies, but they are united by the shared aim of improving the lives of patients and populations around the world.
The broad scope of our clients’ interests means that no two days are the same - from day one you will be hands-on in helping to lead and deliver a wide range of projects, involving anything from organising the launch of a report in Parliament to putting together a video on how artificial intelligence could help the NHS address workforce challenges.
Our Senior Account Directors are responsible for:
- Leading accounts to develop, implement and deliver smooth delivery of client programmes
- Taking an active role in managing members of the team, supporting with their training and progression to develop as consultants
- Updating our clients on the latest political or NHS developments and advising them on the implications for their interests
- Identifying areas of client need and contribute to developing strategies and materials for pitching for new business to new/or existing clients
- Prospecting actively for, and securing, both organic growth and new business
- Playing an active role in the development of marketing materials and events, along with maintaining an active social media presence
- Developing and actively maintaining a network of contacts, across political and policy fields
Who is the ideal candidate?
We’re looking for someone who has significant experience of working in public affairs or communications, whether in Parliament, the charity sector, agency, or elsewhere, and wants to take their career to the next level.
Above all we’re looking for bright creative thinkers with an interest in politics and the NHS. You will be a confident leader and driven with strong interpersonal and communication skills. As the successful applicant, you must be able to demonstrate initiative and problem solving while maintaining high attention to detail.
What is it like to work at Evoke Incisive Health?
At Evoke Incisive Health, we pride ourselves on a culture that supports team well-being as well as business excellence. We are mindful to create a work environment that supports colleagues’ home as well as their professional lives – with supportive paternity and maternity packages and respectful working hours practices. We have a dynamic working policy that enables colleagues more flexibility about when and where they work, with collaboration days where we bring everyone to the office to enable joint working, thinking and socialising. As a member of the Evoke group, we benefit from the expertise of a central Diversity, Equality and Inclusion (DE&I) function, supporting us to build a strong and welcoming team from different backgrounds and experiences.
What opportunities are there for development?
At Evoke Incisive Health we are as ambitious for ourselves as we are for our clients. From the moment you join our team you will be supported and encouraged to develop your talents in your own interest areas and challenged to discover and hone new areas of expertise, through projects in different sectors of healthcare or new geographies.
Our offer includes formal training programmes, a personal training budget, regular opportunities to hear from expert speakers, and most importantly the opportunity to work with and learn from a senior team that has helped to drive some of the most significant health policy change in recent times. As a leader in the business yourself, you will be supported on how to coach and mentor the next generation of Evoke Incisive Health leaders and on how to lead diverse teams with confidence.
