  • A creative thinker, with proven experience of developing strategic marketing plans and implementing integrated marketing across online and offline channels.
  • Strong commercial and resource planning skills.
  • This is a ‘doing’ role, so you’ll need to be hands-on, lead by example and have proven experience of project managing multiple projects within tight timescales.
  • A confident, can-do attitude with excellent communication and presentation skills.
  • Previous experience of leading, managing and motivating a team.
  • An organised approach with excellent attention to detail.
  • Personable, approachable and able to inspire confidence in others.
  • An excellent understanding of the ABPI Code of Practice.
  • Experience with Zinc or Veeva Vaults would be beneficial.
