Syneos Health’s Reputation & Risk Management team is looking for an exceptional mid-level professional to join our rapidly growing communications practice. If you’re looking for a traditional PR position, stop reading now. But if you’re looking for a dynamic role in an ever-changing environment where learning and challenging yourself are encouraged—and expected—this job may be for you.
Who we are: The Syneos Health Reputation & Risk Management Practice is a team of healthcare communications consultants, policy-shapers and crisis response specialists. We provide unique solutions to the evolving communications challenges in today’s healthcare industry, using evidence-based approaches to help our clients successfully navigate the most sensitive milestones for their companies. We live and breathe healthcare—tracking trends, analyzing emerging policies, and translating company messages to patients, providers, investors and policymakers.
Our practice is the best of both worlds: a nimble culture with immense opportunities to grow and inform our service portfolio while having regular access to Syneos Health’s global network and resources.
Who you are: We’re looking for a self-described healthcare “nerd”—someone who wants to think about complex national (and global) healthcare issues and advise clients on communications implications. To succeed in this role, you need a knack for solving problems quickly and an ability to be poised under pressure. Candidates must have a proven track-record of resourcefulness and hands on experience gathering available information to formulate persuasive recommendations and action plans. Excellent writing, verbal presentation and power point skills are required. The position is half communications and half consulting.
What you’ll do: You will serve as a strategist on flagship client businesses as well as contribute to business development and client growth. Specifically, this role must oversee communications and stakeholder engagement strategies relative to corporate communications and reputation advancement, executive visibility, risk mitigation, media relations and thought leadership.
Daily activities will require solving problems, creating strategic plans, overseeing and scheduling team deliverables, and providing strategic counsel and communications materials to clients.
Our ideal candidate will be able to work independently under tight deadlines with modest direction.
As a healthcare company we have an important responsibility to protect individual and public health. This position will require individuals to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 as part of their job responsibilities, unless an exemption can be confirmed based on a medical condition or sincerely held religious belief. Submission & Approval of an Exemption does not guarantee that an exemption can be accommodated.
At Syneos Health Public Relations, the possibilities are infinite. Because of our “no walls, no limits” philosophy and entrepreneurial spirit, our employees have the opportunity and potential to work on projects beyond their years of experience. The only limitations here are those that are self-imposed, and we make sure to reward staff based on talent, not title.
