Everything you need to know about a career in healthcare communications

Are you aware of how varied your career path can be in healthcare communications?
Would you like to talk to people who’ve chosen specific routes and ask them why?
Would it help to have an insider’s honest opinion of what your future role could look like?

At Ashfield Healthcare Communications, we believe that passion and drive is the difference between just having a job and having a rewarding career. However, how can you get ahead unless you know where you’re going? Not everyone has the opportunity to gain a true insight into the breadth of career opportunities available, and that’s where our Ashfield Ask Career Experts Panel (ACE) can help.

We will be running a series of confidential virtual ”career advice” clinics starting in March. This is something that we’ve already offered to our own employees but we’re now opening this up externally as a service to the wider healthcare communications community. You can choose whether you prefer to do this via a telephone call or Skype… Whatever you feel most comfortable with.

You can ask our experts anything you want – it’s entirely up to you – whether it be the different options available, the pros and cons of one role versus another, hints and tips for getting to the next level, or why they chose a particular career path and what they wish they’d known at the time of making that decision.

We want to offer you the chance to discuss the different roles and career paths that exist in healthcare communications, including being a freelancer, but to let you find out more about what it’s like to actually do the job. ACE is about giving you the knowledge and insight so you can plan the next step in your career path and find out which future roles best suit you, irrespective of whether you work for Ashfield Healthcare Communications or not!

But don’t just take our word for it, here’s what others have said about their experience and the advice given from the Ashfield ACE panel…

“It was really useful so thanks for organising it!”

“It was great to have slightly different viewpoints from different people within the business – the more opinions the better! I found the panel very approachable and felt comfortable asking anything.”

“It was very insightful, thank you. It has helped reinforce the direction I’d like to go down, but has also given me food for thought.”

“The clinic was really great and very useful – thanks for organising it!”

“I thought it was a great panel in terms of variety of experience and roles, and I felt very at ease in asking them about career paths etc.”

So, if you just want to find out more, or if you want to book one of our sessions then get in touch with us at AcePanel@ashfieldhealthcare.com to book a slot. Each clinic is 25 minutes and they run from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm UK time. It’s on a first-come-first-served basis so get in touch now before we’re fully booked!

Remember, the secret to getting ahead is getting started.
