CURRENT OPENINGS

CURA Strategies is looking for a results-oriented, self-starting young professional with experience in communications/public relations to join our team.

If you have a passion for working in integrated communications, desire a highly visible client-facing position with lots of growth and leadership opportunities, and want to apply your skills to help transform health care, we want to talk to you.

At CURA, our aim is to transform health care through meaningful client work. Working with nonprofit and corporate clients in the areas of mental health, health disparities, cardiology, kidney disease and more, we pride ourselves in creating lasting results for clients – and we are looking for someone who shares our passion and believes in our mission.

Unburden yourself of tired big agency politics that offer no clear path for professional growth and join our growing team of talented people who thrive in a fast-paced, evolving environment.

Responsibilities

  • Provide day-to-day project management and communications support to health care clients
  • Work closely with account lead to support client projects and manage client relationships, including project tracking, client calls, planning meeting participation, note taking, status updates, invoice coordination, budget tracking; client interaction is expected
  • Develop and edit high quality content for social media and written materials, including media correspondence, press releases, monthly newsletters, bylines, policy briefs, speaker proposals/abstracts, etc.
  • Research and provide analysis related to earned and social media to develop strategies, identify targets and track metrics; experience with Cision and Hootsuite a plus
  • Oversight of media monitoring with rapid response recommendations for clients, including social posts and reporter pitch ideas
  • Support email marketing campaigns and e-newsletter programs to nurture key audiences for clients; experience working in an email marketing system (EMS) and/or customer management system (CMS) a plus

  • Support the development of strategic communications plans that shape policy and/or enhance corporate/brand/product positioning

Qualifications

The ideal candidate will be eager to learn and have 2-3 years of public relations/communications experience, preferably in a PR agency. This candidate would ideally have worked in the health care space on issue-based communications and have basic knowledge of health care stakeholders and health care policy topics. Candidate must have strong interest in the area of health and wellness. Specific exposure to issues related to pharmaceutical, biotechnology and diagnostic policy issues (e.g., market access, drug pricing, etc.) is a plus.

We are looking for a strong cultural fit to add to our fast-growing work family. When hiring a team member, we are looking for someone with a great attitude and a steadfast work ethic. Strong writing and organizational skills and ability to multi-task is fundamental to succeeding in this position. We believe in a healthy work-life balance—including unlimited PTO after one year of employment—but agency life requires being open to flexible work hours when client needs arise.  Candidate must be detail-oriented with a proactive, innovative and positive attitude toward client service. Candidates should be self-motivated and diligent with a high degree of proactivity and accountability for team-based work.
