The successful candidate will have graduated with at least a 2:1 undergraduate degree, and will be able to demonstrate:
- Keen interest in health policy and public affairs
- Excellent verbal and written communication skills
- Proficiency in the use of standard office software
- Ability to meet deadlines
- Capacity to work alone and as part of a team
Prior experience in public affairs, health policy and / or consultancy is desirable but not essential.

At Incisive Health we help our clients understand the fast-paced political and NHS environment and advise them on how they can cut through the noise. We are creative, ambitious and dedicated and if you are too then we can offer you a sector-leading opportunity to grow your skills and expertise.
So, what’s the job?
As an Account Executive, you will be an essential part of a team working with clients across a wide range of issues and challenges. Our clients are diverse, ranging from small charities to global pharmaceutical companies, but they are united by the shared aim of improving the lives of patients and populations around the world.
The broad scope of our clients’ interests means that no two days are the same – from day one you will be hands-on in helping to deliver a wide range of projects, involving anything from organising the launch of a report in Parliament to putting together a video on how artificial intelligence could help the NHS address workforce challenges.
Our Account Executives are responsible for:
- Updating our clients on the latest political or NHS developments and advising them on the implications for their interests
- Mapping important individuals and organisations who our clients should engage with and help them develop relationships
- Undertaking research into complex issues and distilling relevant details into digestible key points
- Supporting the organisation of workshops, roundtables and conferences
- Pitching for new business to potential clients
What opportunities are there for development?
We are as ambitious for ourselves as we are for our clients. We aim to provide an environment that delivers outstanding opportunities for development and allows people to progress as fast and far as they are able to.
Our offer includes a formal training programme, a personal training budget, regular opportunities to hear from expert speakers, and most importantly the opportunity to work with and learn from a senior team that has been helped to drive some of the most significant health policy change in recent times.
Who is the ideal candidate?
We’re looking for someone who has some experience of working in public affairs or communications, whether in Parliament, the charity sector, agency, or elsewhere, and wants to take their career to the next level.
Above all we’re looking for bright creative thinkers with an interest in politics and the NHS who are keen to learn and impress. You will be confident and driven with strong interpersonal and communication skills. As the successful applicant, you must be able to demonstrate initiative and problem solving while maintaining high attention to detail.Apply now
