Our client, a PR and Creative Agency, is seeking a Director of Digital Strategy with Healthcare to join their team full time.

In this role you will provide digital/social counsel to public affairs, social impact, Pharma, and marketing communications clients; elevate and manage the digital presence; and play the lead digital role in new business presentations. This role is very hands-on and you must be willing to help build a team and business while providing high-level strategy and council. This role is remote to start and a workstation will be provided.

The Director of Digital Strategy will:
- Be willing and able to both counsel and “do”—pivoting often from shaping innovative digital strategies to managing or implementing a digital campaign
- Train and lead account teams to provide and implement cutting-edge digital solutions designed to advance health understanding and outcomes
- Persuasively sell digital proposals and ideas in live presentations and in writing—often in competitive new business pitch situations
- Know the Healthcare and Pharmaceutical guardrails that govern digital/social, yet have an innovation and risk-taking approach and spirit
- Be Digitally Operational, providing accurate time and cost estimates for projects ranging from web design to social campaigns; manage those budgets through implementation
- Use data/convert social listening to sound insights and strategies
- Advocate for “always on” paid social strategies when appropriate

The ideal Director of Digital Strategy will have the following qualifications:
- Must understand and have a portfolio of Healthcare and Pharmaceutical digital experience, including earned and paid social
- 8+ years of experience in digital health, ideally split between agency and in-house to reflect both perspectives
- Solid understanding of both paid and organic
- Effective presentation, training and client-facing skills
- Stellar communication, verbal and written skills
