Hanover Health launches the Mackay Programme

New programme for communicators looking to breakthrough in their careers.

Hanover Health has today launched The Mackay Programme to offer experienced professionals the opportunity to switch careers by joining an award-winning healthcare communications consultancy that helps to change the lives of millions for the better.

The programme, open to non-healthcare agency professionals and experienced communicators working in the wider healthcare sector, will provide comprehensive training and development to help propel successful candidates into a global healthcare communications career.

The selected candidates will join the Hanover Health team, who provide smart thinking, refreshing storytelling and breakthrough solutions to a wide range of global clients including: pharmaceutical and medical technology companies, healthcare service providers, charities, professional and public-sector bodies.

The programme will include:

· Fundamental training on our company, our services, our healthcare offer and how the business is run

· Industry-recognised training opportunities and participation in our Hanover Academy training programme

· Investment and budget to spend on CPD or professional qualifications to further career development

· Attendance at industry conferences and events

· The ability to draw on our network of experts in the sector (the Hanover Group is part of AVENIR GLOBAL, a global network of comms and public affairs consultancies)

· Opportunities to work with colleagues in our Brussels, Dublin and Middle East offices

· Immersion within an entrepreneurial environment

· Hanover Group benefits and additional perks

Successful candidates will be placed at levels ranging from Consultant up to Associate Director.

This opportunity is suited to those with a passion for communications and a drive to join a fast-paced, breakthrough industry.

Applicants must be able to demonstrate strong communications skills and an interest in the sector but no prior experience in healthcare is necessary. Applications close: Friday 10th April 2020. Shortlisted candidates will be invited to interview at the Hanover office in London.

The Mackay programme is dedicated to one of Hanover’s founders, Gregor Mackay, who died in 2005 eight weeks after being diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. Mackay personified an “uncommon sense” approach and took particular interest in the development of people and teams.

Andrew Harrison, Managing Director of Hanover Health, said:

“At Hanover Health, we recognise that the best innovation and creative problem-solving requires diverse thinking.

This is why we’re looking for the brightest minds across communications, public affairs and healthcare, to help bring fresh thinking, bold ideas and broad experience into the industry. The sector is constantly evolving, and this opportunity offers a different cohort of talent the chance to be part of this change, working with clients who are on the cusp of the latest research and technology to improve lives for the better.

It is only fitting to name it after Gregor Mackay, a man who personified the breakthrough approach, and who recognised the transformational power of great communications.”
