At AXON Communications we are looking to expand our Medical Communications team with the addition of a passionate, dedicated and pro-active Senior Account Manager. Within this role you will hold responsibility for account management, client relations communications strategy, people management and mentorship.

Your responsibilities will include (but are not limited to):

  • Management of multiple accounts
  • Client liaison
  • Setting and managing budgets
  • Identifying and capitalising on business opportunities
  • Managing multiple account priorities with essential business responsibilities
  • Mentoring, coaching and monitoring the long-term career development of staff
  • Collaborating with all offices across the AVENIR GLOBAL network

At AXON we actively encourage the team to be involved in activities outside of their day-to-day work. Whether that’s being involved in our social, marketing or CSR Electives, attending networking events, or running training sessions on topics they have a personal interest in (some recent examples include mindfulness and nutrition). 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.

The ideal candidate will have:

  • Relevant experience spent in a Medical Communications agency environment
  • Excellent writing, presentation and creative thinking skills
  • Demonstrated leadership and mentorship abilities
  • A team focused mind-set
  • A drive to develop, as an individual, and within a team
  • Passionate about science and healthcare, educated to a minimum degree level (life science being an advantage)

As an agency, we are passionate about healthcare communications and combine a personal touch with professionalism. Our expertise includes medical communications, public relations, clinical trial services and market access communications/consultancy for pharmaceutical, biotech, medical device, animal health and functional food companies. AXON has an international reach, with offices in London, Brighton, New York, Toronto and Copenhagen, and a worldwide affiliate network. Established in 2002, AXON is an AVENIR GLOBAL company.

Equal Opportunities

AXON is committed to a policy of equal opportunities and non-discrimination. At all times we aim to recruit, develop and promote the very best people, basing judgement solely on suitability for the job. We particularly encourage applications from those who are significantly underrepresented in our sector, such as disabled people, ethnic minorities, and neurodiverse people.

COVID-19 and Work Location

Whilst our employees are currently predominantly working from home, we will move to a hybrid model of working in the future across our office locations.

We anticipate that some of our team will start returning to the office in the coming months. We will ensure that our office remains COVID-secure and in line with government guidance are conducting risk assessments and putting precautions in place to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our staff.

This said, we want to create an inclusive environment for a diverse workforce and we know that everyone has different needs. We therefore offer flexible working and are open to having a conversation around what flexibility means for you (considering work location and working patterns).

Please note that candidates must have permission to work in the location for which they are applying.
