Help Us Make Healthcare Better
Ranked a U.S. top 10 firm, we guide the nation’s leading healthcare providers in the midst of relentless change, transformation and opportunity.
Jarrard is proud to serve the healthcare industry exclusively with a mission to make healthcare better. We succeed at our mission because of the smart, talented people on our team. We’re on the lookout for more great thinkers to join us to help healthcare leaders through this pivotal point in the history of the industry.
We’re proud to rank among America’s top 10 healthcare communications firms and Nashville’s “Best Places to Work.”
We take great care in offering the best aspects of agency life – from putting ourselves in the war room with healthcare decision makers, to assembling a collaborative environment, driven by teams of experts – in the strategically-placed healthcare hubs of Nashville and Chicago.
From firm retreats to our own professional development program, it’s all about learning as a team to help make healthcare better.
The Work We Do:
While we offer some PR services, we are not a traditional PR firm. Often, we work as strategic consultants. We help clients manage change and growth, assess capabilities, plan for crises, navigate issues, and establish their brand as health systems grow and transform.
The Vice President is the National Practice Leader’s key executive responsible for the direct relationship between clients and the firm. The Vice President manages the team, the client relationship, the work and is accountable for ensuring the firm meets client expectations and firm goals.
The Managing Advisor is the day-in, day-out steward of the agency-client relationship and manages client planning, implementation and reporting. The MA is responsible for driving the client services team toward on-time and on-strategy completion of program deliverables and commitments. The MA serves as the client team’s daily go-to person for operational direction, tactical challenges and client relations support.
The Advisor is the client team’s go-to person, responsible for day-to-day implementation of client program tactics. Some of the tactical components may include research in support of client projects, drafting and editing client materials, conducting media pitches and outreach, as well as developing an understanding of the healthcare industry and issues that are important to our clients.
Qualified candidates must be recent college graduates pursuing a career in public relations, journalism, politics, or business or healthcare communications, write well, present well, demonstrate professionalism, happily perform unfortunately mundane tasks and work well in a high-stakes campaign environment with our eclectic team.
