For almost 20 years our PR agency has specialized in working with top companies and research centers in pharma, biotech, medical devices and diagnostics. We are seeking a healthcare communications PR pro with relevant agency or in house experience to join our team. Position requires strong writing and media relations skills.

This is a great career opportunity for someone who can work independently and as part of a team in planning and executing a diverse range of publicity and writing projects. Plenty of room to impress with creativity and initiative.

- have relevant experience (PR agency, pharma, medical device, hospital/laboratory or media/writing with a focus on clinical or general healthcare issues);
- demonstrate skill in developing communications materials including press kits, pitch letters, brochures, web sites, bylined articles or newsletters. We need a great writer who is fast, clear, grammatical and persuasive.

- be a skilled presenter and a strong communicator; and,
- prefer a team culture and loft-office environment with shared responsibilities and an essential collaborative approach to client service.

In addition to health benefits, retirement plan and performance-based bonus, position offers opportunity for rapid growth and career advancement for the right candidate. We need a smart and detail oriented PR pro ready to manage accounts and expand our team. A sense of humor is not required, but definitely not discouraged. We’re busy now and positioned to grow even faster in the months ahead. Great midtown NYC location.
