We're pleased to announce the senior appointment of Gill Adair as our Global Head of Talent Acquisition, Ashfield Healthcare Communications.
Gill, who has progressed throughout Ashfield since joining the company straight from AstraZeneca 17 years ago, has been appointed in order to drive forward the company’s innovative and progressive recruitment campaigns, to identify new talent, and to nurture the careers of those already working within the group.

Talking about how her experience in the sector will help her shape this role, Gill said: “I started work in medical communications in 1999 and have worked my way up progressing through the group. I know from personal experience what it takes to define a career and progress within the medical communications sector. More crucially I understand what clients want and how important cultural fit is for new talent joining us.
Ashfield Healthcare Communications has always placed great emphasis on the importance of the individual, and now that we’re bringing together our UK and US talent acquisition teams we believe this global one view approach will benefit our employees as well as the new talent we’re keen to attract. This will help in offering wider opportunities for people to move around and progress within the group through supported career planning.
These are exciting times for Ashfield Healthcare Communications as we look towards future growth. We’re focused on ensuring we’re the employer of choice, that every candidate who comes into contact with us has a positive experience from their communications and interactions. We’ve built our business with exceptional people, and new candidates can be confident they are going to be working and learning from the best. My team and I plan to continue differentiating ourselves through our unique approach to identifying and nurturing talent by placing the candidate and employee at the heart of our offering.”
