Senior Manager/Director Digital Strategy

Huumun is a leading digital transformation and solutions provider specialising in the life sciences sector. We're seeing increasing demand for our solutions, including for high-level strategy and planning, and are now looking for a senior professional in this area to join us. This is an exciting role delivering digital strategy consulting and execution to a range of international pharma and biotech clients, at UK, EU and global levels.

Right now, you might be in a corporate environment, or at an agency or consulting firm, either in a director-level role, or looking to make this your next step.

Keen to join a small, fast moving organisation where you can really make an impact? This could be the ideal opportunity for you. Salary and benefits will be geared towards attracting the right individual.

A deep understanding of changing consumer (and ideally healthcare professional) behaviour in an increasingly digital world will help us define what this means for healthcare marketers

Qualifications and experience required:

This role requires proven experience in digital strategy, innovation, and multichannel marketing.

Ideally with some form of post-graduate qualification in digital, strategy or innovation, you will be able to match theory with real-world experience, and a pragmatic approach to getting things done.

Whilst preference will be given to candidates with pharma experience, we'd also encourage candidates with a broad B2B and B2C digital strategy background to apply.
