The Heart of the Matter 8: Trends with benefits

The heart of the matter

Two decades ago, working in a healthcare communications agency might have been regarded as a stepping stone to a career in mainstream pharma. But times have changed. 

As the industry’s reliance on outsourced services has grown, so too has the recognition that a good agency can offer alternative, but equally stimulating, benefits to working in-house at a pharmaceutical company. 

With the best agencies providing robust pathways for career development and genuine opportunities for personal growth, an agency role is no longer just a gateway into pharma. In fact increasingly, the traffic is coming the other way. It’s a growing trend - and for those that make the journey, it has real benefits.

Whether you work for a drug company or a communications agency, a career in healthcare is both motivational and rewarding. What’s more, as outsourcing has become de rigueur, the dynamics of agency/pharma relations have evolved from being ‘master and servant’ to ones built around collaboration and partnership. 

The goal is the same on both sides; to develop innovative treatment strategies that deliver real-world benefits to patients. It’s a great industry. 

But the specific benefits of working agency-side are numerous - and may surprise many who have not previously considered making the move.
