    SVP for boutique life sciences agency

     

    This will seem like an unconventional job description.  It is.  But I am working on a unique search.

     

    I have been known to quiver when an agency client approaches me for help on a search for a life sciences communicator, regardless of level.  What I hear from prospective candidates is that they love their current agency or they’d only move for an in house role.  I get it.

     

    But this time, I actively sought out the assignment.  I know the agency well.  And they are unlike other agencies.

    • Independent. Make decisions rapidly.  Look at the long-term and big picture for decision-making.  Flat.
    • Rapid, yet controlled, growth.  20+ FT employees in multiple offices.  Companies seek out their services – it’s not a business development role
    • Tailor-made for people who love the craft of communication - the chance to really work hands-on with clients and provide both strategic and tactical guidance.
    • Clients are emerging life sciences companies; mostly early stage.  They rely on my client for strategic counsel on messaging/positioning, media relations, social/digital strategies and investor relations support.
    • They want people who have been there, done that and have credibility in the industry.

     

    It’s an SVP-level position based in Cambridge, MA.
