By Jess Greenman, Account Manager
It’s sometimes confusing having two of us in the office, but nonetheless we’re a dynamic duo – sometimes better known as the ‘Super Jess’s’, and together we make up part of the fabulous M&F Health team.
I’ve interviewed the other half of our double act, our recently promoted Senior Account Executive Jess Wilkinson, to find out exactly what working at M&F Health means to her. Hopefully this gives you some insight into what we get up to here, and maybe even inspires you to send us your CV?
Can you give us some insight into a typical day for you here at M&F Health? For me, no day here at M&F Health is quite the same, as I work on a variety of different accounts from pharmaceuticals to nutrition, including some professional groups. Each account has its own challenges and that’s what makes each day so exciting! I get the chance to do media relations, medical education, social media strategy, event planning, copy writing and more, and I always get the chance to add a creative flair where I can – something that is really encouraged here at M&F Health.
Why do you love working at M&F Health? I really love the atmosphere here, it feels like we’re all one big family! We’re all quite open and the structure is very flat, so I get the opportunity to work more closely with senior colleagues than I might do elsewhere, and it means I get lots of responsibility which I enjoy.
What was your career highlight of 2017? I was privileged enough to get the chance to start a secondment to one of our clients, which means I’m out of the office twice a week in Manchester. It’s such a valuable opportunity to get to know the client really well, understand the day to day processes of the company, and get face to face time with the wider team. I’ve loved having this responsibility and feel it has really helped in my career progression.
What was your most scary moment of 2017? My first pitch! I didn’t know what to expect, and was eager to make a good impression, not just for myself, but for the M&F team as a whole. Needless to say, it all went swimmingly, and I realised I had nothing to worry about at all
What do you hope to achieve in 2018? I hope to become involved in more new business opportunities and continue to work on exciting healthcare campaigns
