Location: Southwark, London
Reporting to: Design Lead, Creative Director
We are The Pharm: an integrated, multi-specialty service and consulting model where we work with our client Walgreens Boots Alliance in partnership towards one shared mission: to help people across the world lead healthier and happier lives.
The 350+ experts assembled at The Pharm have a unique opportunity to dedicate ourselves to one client in pursuit of their ambitious mission, while collaborating with experts from across several agencies (and areas of expertise) within our holding company, WPP.
Our shared values: Positive. Fearless. Celebratory.
We are here to help grow a brand. And while we’re at it, grow a few more things too — like some extra brain cells from thinking so hard, and a feeling of camaraderie with our clients, who share a fearless approach to our mutual goals. We also hope to grow as people, and practitioners with understanding gained from the diversity of our ranks and our wholehearted commitment to our culture of belonging.
At The Pharm, all who step under our pitched roof instantly become part of a unique collective bent on gathering the best talent anywhere and lavishing them with intellectual freedom, so their ideas can collide in a million fun ways. Here, opinions are welcome, dissenting or otherwise. Identities celebrated and respected. Contributions cheered and rewarded. Free time guarded like a precious gem. Because here, we cultivate things—like creativity, niceness, inclusiveness, career-life balance, and ultimately, work we want to brag about to our friends.
