You’ll need to navigate the consumer healthcare, health and beauty, public health and NHS markets to build relationships that bring third party content to the platform to support a well-rounded offering to customers.

Core areas of responsibility include:

  • Lead the commission and design of compelling content using motion graphics to populate the platform library:
  • Manage the work of one or more motion designers to turn ideas into assets that will be tailored to the pharmacy sector
  • Analyse, segment and understand the market to develop effective content plans backed up with metrics and reporting to demonstrate the value of the product
