Senior Project Manager - Saatchi & Saatchi Wellness, New York

Publicis Healthcare Communications Group - New York, NY (30+ days ago)3.6


Saatchi & Saatchi Wellness is looking for a Senior Project Manager to join our team in New York.
Walk the halls of SSW and you'll find a rather spirited and passionate group of people. It's a stimulating assembly of professionals—writers, managers, strategists, art directors, planners, analysts and developers.

We believe the only way to move people to live healthier, happier lives is to create ideas that move them emotionally. Never powered by reason alone, people – whether they’re consumers, caregivers, doctors or payers – are motivated to take action by emotion. Only when people feel something will they be willing to do something.

For decades, Saatchi & Saatchi Wellness has provided consumer and professional marketing, strategic consulting and medical education to pharmaceutical and wellness brands.

Today, we're dedicated to continuing that legacy by raising the bar and crafting award- winning work online, on-air, in print and in-office. Going beyond addressing simply the absence of illness, our vision is to inspire a healthier, happier world. Together, we strive to help brands thrive in today’s culture of wellbeing by leveraging the power of Wellness IntelligenceSM.

About the Role:

Do you geek out over deadlines, routing projects and organization? Do you have AdAge.com bookmarked on your computer? Do you want to make the world a healthier, more creative place? If yes, then read on.
