Our team at AXON Clinical Studies (CS) is looking for an Account Associate to join us on our journey to ignite change in healthcare. This entry-level role is an opportunity for a self-starter to develop their career in a friendly and flexible agency by supporting tactical implementation of programs on behalf of AXON’s clients.

Responsibilities

  • Work in conjunction with senior staff to manage day‐to‐day client mandates

At AXON we actively encourage the team to be involved in activities outside of their day-to-day work.

We have a keen focus on training and development and as a rough guide, suggest employees aim to complete 37.5 hours of learning a year.  Whether that be through online learning, classroom training, or attending external events, that’s one week a year dedicated to your development.
