Havas Lynx is a global communications group - with offices in Manchester, London and New York. The majority of the work we do is within the healthcare and wellness sector. Across our UK offices we have a team of over 260 people who produce global marketing campaigns that enables us to enhance people's lives whether that is by helping patients to understand their treatment options, providing support to carers or by helping Healthcare Professionals, and others in healthcare systems to make appropriate treatment decisions.
As part of our exciting Graduate Programme, we are looking for an Account Executive to join our Manchester based team. This position is ideal for someone seeking to commence their career in digital marketing, particularly those who have an interest in the development of communications strategy. This role will see you work with clients across the Pharmaceutical sector, although prior experience in this industry isn't essential. We are keen to hear from graduates with a 2:1 degree in a Life Science or Marketing discipline.
On a day to day basis, you'll work as part of a team to take and interpret client briefs; you will then work to implement the campaign and gain measurable results using which ever medium is most appropriate to the objectives. Due to the nature of the work that we do, much of this will be digital communications - including websites, mobile and iPad applications. This is a supportive role and you'll work with more senior team members, constantly developing and adding to your experience and skill set. Tasks that you are likely to encounter include establishing client relationships, attending meetings and telephone conferences, establishing budgets, developing creative briefs and liaising with internal production teams.
The successful candidate will:
· Be studying towards a Life Science or Marketing degree
· Display very strong organisational and time management skills
· Possess strong written and verbal communication skills
· Be professional, approachable and confident in communicating with all levels of seniority
· Be able to demonstrate instances where they have worked in a team
· Be a proactive person with a creative nature who possess a keen eye for detail
