Jonny Ladd

Which team do you work in?

Healthcare Communications

Which area do you specialise in?

Advertising, PR & Digital

How do you keep up-to-date with the issues in your sector?

Through constant communication with candidates and clients within the industry. I like to meet with my clients and candidates as often as possible and to get out to as many networking events as I can. I also like to keep track of what is happening in the industry via LinkedIn, PMLive and other pharma news sites. 

What's your favourite film and why?

Gladiator - it's a timeless film with a great cast and fantastic story. They don't make them like that anymore.

If you could invent one thing what would it be?

I'd love to have a teleport. I love to travel but some places are so far away! I'd love to press a button and be able to spend the weekend on the beach in Fiji.

What makes you #DistinctlyDifferent?

I can read and write in Korean! After teaching English over there I have learnt to really understand people and have seen how rewarding it is to help people whatever their circumstances. In my job I really listen to both my clients and candidates needs and try to match them as best as possible. 


The Role

Associate Director - Healthcare PR Health & Wellness - London - £90k

A fast growing, highly ambitious PR & Content agency are growing and looking for an entrepreneurial Associate Director eager to grow a health and wellbeing team working in cooperation with some of the biggest names in the industry.


The Company

Part of one of the most vibrant marketing groups that has been winning awards across consumer and health brands, this agency has plans to become the agency of the year and want you to be part of their journey. Based in central London with an overall team of 80 people, my client is looking to attract the best talent in the industry to help grow their health and wellness offering.

  • A well-established agency with accounts across consumer, corporate B2B, health and wellness and pharma clients.

  • A business known within the agency world for being one of the most collaborative and welcoming agencies around.

  • Famous for applying an understanding and their expertise to their consumer and pharma brands by creating captivating campaigns that have been recognised with a host of awards over the years.

  • Buzzing offices in the heart of central London


The Role

The agency is looking for a talented Associate Director to join their growing health & wellness team to deliver fully integrated campaigns across digital, social, broadcast, influencer and traditional channels. The successful Associate Director will work across the full spectrum of health and wellness with a focus on consumer and pharma clients. Responsibilities will include:

  • Acting as the lead and go to person on current health accounts, responsible for campaign delivery, team management and ensuring profitability of the business.

  • Play a leading role in the pitching process and be active in assisting the wider agency with new business development plans.

  • Build trusted relationships with current clients and actively seek opportunities for growth.

  • Management of a team consisting of health and consumer experts. Play an active part in helping the business to grow whilst championing internal professional development.

  • Be the 'go to person' for strategic media relations, news generation, stakeholder engagement and influencer communications.



You will be an experienced Associate Director with over 6 years agency experience working on a mixture of pharma and consumer health brands. This isn't a position for someone looking to sit on accounts and continue with traditional client services tasks… You will have entrepreneurial flair and love the challenge of pitching and winning new business.

  • A team player who leads by example - you will embody the agency values and provide the highest quality of standards across all work.

  • Experience of working on integrated campaigns for global and domestic work in the health and wellness space.

  • Driven, hardworking and enthusiastic with a desire to work with senior members of the business.


What should you do next?

This Associate Director role is the most exciting brief I have worked on this year. The business is exceptional, and I have no doubt that they are offering the right person a perfect step up in their career. With interviews taking place imminently, please don't hesitate in expressing your interest.
