Company Description

Saatchi & Saatchi Wellness is a creative agency operating in the health and wellness space. We work with people we believe in to make work the world can believe in, and we do this by combining the type of interrogative thinking you only find in a high science agency, with the type of brand magic you only find in a creative agency. It's this unique point of difference that's helped us achieve fame for both our clients and their brands in everything from aesthetics, supplements, and fertility, to endocrinology, dermatology, and oncology. And the cherry, if you're looking for one, is that we're part of Publicis Groupe. So working with us gets you access to all manner of interesting people with an almost limitless depth and breadth of skills and experience.

Job Description

We're looking for someone who's looking for something. Someone who's not quite content with where they are and what they've got. Someone who spends their time dreaming, making, doing, building, creating. Someone with the intelligence to think, challenge, and push things into unexpected places, without pushing people into unpleasant places. Someone who doesn't believe rules are absolute or good enough is good enough. We're looking for someone special. Maybe that someone is you?
