If you have a passion for working in integrated communications, desire a highly visible client-facing position with growth and leadership opportunities, and want to apply your skills to help transform health care, we want to talk to you.
CURA Strategies, a fast-growing, award-winning health care communications and public affairs agency, is looking for a results-oriented, self-starting young professional with experience in communications/public relations to join our team.
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.
Courageous, hardworking, positive people please apply. Grumpy people, keep searching.
The ideal candidate will be eager to learn and have 2-3 years of public relations/communications experience, preferably in a PR agency. Candidate must have demonstrated media relations experience. This candidate would ideally have worked and have strong interest in the health care space and have basic knowledge of health care stakeholders and hot health care topics. Specific exposure to issues related to mental health, pharmaceutical, biotechnology, 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.
To apply, please submit your resume and cover letter to Thy-Ann Nguyen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
