  • Aligning all agency work with overall corporate and communications plans
  • Drafting speeches for leadership to deliver at external conferences, speaking engagements and industry events
  • Identifying awards to submit for consideration – both for the organization and its leaders
  • Providing a high level of service and support to the business; successfully integrating into the corporate services and market operations team, and taking a partnership approach to getting things done
  • Internalizing business and market feedback to inform and if necessary adjust strategy execution

What will make you successful here?

  • You have high emotional intelligence, the ability to forge meaningful relationships, and can successfully navigate diverse stakeholder groups
  • You are highly collaborative, yet skilled at influencing others to achieve results
  • You are experienced performing under pressure with a strong sense of urgency, attention to detail, and a commitment to doing what you say you will do
  • You are solution-oriented and have a passion for being hands-on in problem-solving and execution
  • You are self-starting and maintain a high sense of urgency and accountability in delivering measurable results in line with agreed upon timeframes

What you bring to VillageMD:

  • A minimum of 10 - 15 years of progressive business experience; recent experience in a communications leadership role
  • Preferred experience working in a grassroots marketing environment

An Insider's view of VillageMD

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Aggregating disparate sets into one consumable interface is difficult. We constantly think about how to solve it faster and better while keeping it flexible and scalable.

Mario

What makes someone successful on your team?

It’s an individual’s willingness to get into the details, fully understand the current path to delivery, and think critically about the problems that face providers today that will make them successful at VillageMD.

Dave

Director, Product Development

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The office vibe is centered on holding our work to high standards while maintaining an environment focused on fun and collaboration. My coworkers and I will often be working on completely unrelated projects, but when we hit a roadblock we step back and ask each other for feedback and help. That’s usually when we find the best solutions.
