Senior Account Director- Medical Strategy & Education

  • Full-time

Company Description

Who we are

Langland, a Publicis Health company, is the only health communications agency that thinks further across Clinical Trial Experience, Medical Strategy & Education, Public Relations & Policy, and Advertising, to create unique value with visionary clients.

What we believe

Health brings us together. In the diseases we suffer, the medicines we create, and the causes we champion, health shows us our collective humanity. When we break the barriers that divide us, when we think further, we can create healthier futures, together.

A passion for craft

Having expert thinking is only part of our story. To ensure excellence in everything we make, we have centred our disciplines around three essential crafts: science, strategy and creativity.

Job Description

In the Langland Medical Strategy & Education (MSE) team, we love reality, it’s where we live. It’s where professionals, protocols and p-values come face to face with the imperfect and unpredictable. We think further, exploring how insight can give data meaning in the real world, stimulating open discourse that people value, to advance human health.

We partner with our clients across the whole product lifecycle.

  • We look beyond the complex scientific data to understand what it means in the context of different perspectives, beliefs and behaviours.
  • We uncover new ways to differentiate brands that aren’t just about the lines on the graph but encompass both rational and emotional factors that are built into the strategic plan.
  • We engage with not only traditional thought leaders, but also those who influence digitally and patient advocates, building mutually valuable relationships.
  • We craft compelling scientific stories with visual, credible, impactful content that resonate with the target audience, meet a need and influence behaviour.
  • We understand end-users’ reality and create tailored communication programmes to help move HCPs across a knowledge and belief continuum and stimulate open discourse.

The main therapy areas we are working across currently are oncology, dermatology, HIV, rare diseases, respiratory medicine and CNS disorders, but regular new business wins will almost certainly provide an opportunity to work in other areas.

If you are ready to join our close-knit, ambitious team and play a role in the development and delivery of high quality medical education programmes, whilst experiencing a myriad of personal and professional development opportunities and collaborating across our four health disciplines, we’d like to hear from you.



If you’re ambitious, dedicated and ready to change how people see the world of healthcare – then we’d love to meet you. Ideally, you’ll have experience in a similar role within a healthcare agency. We’re looking for a solid background working with pharmaceutical clients and demonstrable skills of working on a large variety of global projects and multiple accounts. You'll also have experience managing direct reports and be able to build good relationships with senior management. We’re looking for exceptionally strong verbal and written communication skills – and someone who’ll be seen as a credible voice to both clients and internal stakeholders. There are tight deadlines, fast-moving projects and clients who only demand the best from us – but if you’re the sort of person who thrives in this kind of environment, you’re in the right place.

And if you like to Think Further, join the club. Here at Langland, we’re an open-minded bunch – always on the look out for new ideas; whether that’s in the work we produce or a way of working. So if you want to approach something in a different way, we’ll be all ears.

The role

The Senior Account Director role continues to carry out many similar tasks as an Account Director whilst taking some responsibilities of the Associate Director role.  The role takes ownership for specific accounts whilst proactively identifying, challenging and seeking solutions to grow the team, the business and the agency. 

The role will have significant experience across a broad range of therapy areas, meeting a range of client needs and the role holder will be comfortable they have the tools, skills, and experience to handle most conversations with client, without needing more senior support. The role holder will have experience in managing teams and be able to make their own recommendations about how best to staff the business. Whilst the role holder will be responsible for their own specific accounts, the role will give greater consideration to the agency as a whole and building business acumen.
