  • Highly competent and creative, with enthusiasm for and experience of new business development.

As a people-focused business WA offers:

  • A competitive starting salary, significant growth potential and involvement in the company’s incentive and reward scheme.
  • A tailored professional development package that will continue your progress as a healthcare public affairs consultant.
  • A lively, open and collaborative working culture, in which everyone is valued, listened to, and encouraged to generate ideas and opportunities.
