Account Executive

We’re looking for a new Account Executive to join our team.

We are a specialist healthcare communications consultancy working with some of the most exciting organisations in the sector – from disruptive and innovative data and software to cutting edge pharmaceuticals & life sciences, as well as organisations that care and provide technology or services for patients.

We’re looking for people who are passionate about the NHS, behaviour change, science, global health, marketing, policy, PR and who want to learn more about the sector becoming a standout communications professional along the way.

At ZPB, our account executives are Very Important People. They are responsible for making our accounts run smoothly and efficiently day to day. They talk to our clients and learn about their business. They arrange meetings, undertake research and writing (blogs, case studies, articles). They organise events and webinars, create social media plans and assets, deliver social media campaigns, write press releases, prepare media lists and evaluations. They attend events and create presentations. They get involved in designing strategies and preparing for new business pitches. They get to meet and work with senior leaders in the public and private sectors.

They care about getting details right and they want to learn and improve every day. They make sure we are all in the right place at the right time as well as think one step ahead, anticipating the needs of others in the team.

Because we are a small but perfectly formed team, our account executives get to work on a wide variety of projects which include creative, policy, research, strategy, marketing and digital comms. They get to learn a whole lot on the job from our talented team. And there is a clear career path at ZPB.

You’ll be able to work as part of an exciting and enthusiastic team that deliver excellent, innovative, high-profile work. As well as learning about the healthcare system you’ll be able to problem-solve, be creative, and be part of the healthcare debate. You’ll need guts, ambition and integrity as well as a drive to improve your skills and knowledge along the way.

We operate a hybrid workplace with days in the office as well as days working from home – our aim is to make sure we have the best of both worlds. Our office is based on the Thames at Vauxhall and features a swanky bar with a view and a rooftop garden for sunny days. Plus we have access to other co-working spaces across London, Bristol and Leeds.
