HAVAS Just:: has grown its practice with eight hires over recent months, including three former interns who return to the company attracted by career development opportunities and the chance to work with award-winning creative agencies based at its Kings Cross HQ.
Former interns Anita Vimal, Ashi Nair, and Karla Baresa are now junior consultants, working on global PR campaigns in ophthalmology, diabetes, vaccines and rare diseases. “The agency’s values of collaboration, curiosity and confidence really stood out to me,” Baresa said. Vimal added: “I joined HAVAS Just:: because I wanted to apply my science background in an industry keen to make a genuine difference.”
Director Jo Hewitt, said: “We’re delighted to offer permanent positions to Anita, Ashi, and Karla following their internships. Since our programme began in 2015, we’ve hired eight of our interns and are clearly seeing the value of nurturing talent at the start of people’s careers.
“The variety of work we offer, and clear career progression, are proving attractive to many candidates, as are the opportunities to collaborate with other Vivendi group agencies co-located at our fantastic HAVAS Kings Cross offices. These include gaming, digital, and experiential agencies.”
Other hires – new Justees – include: consultant Ellie Duncan, a former project manager at the Royal College of Surgeons of England; consultant Lauren Packer, who joins from FleishmanHillard Fishburn; consultant Hannah Clarke, who joins from Clark Health Communications; Oxford graduate, Natasha Chetina, and University of Exeter graduate, Ellie Farrow, who join as junior consultants.
Commenting on the diversity of opportunity at the company, consultant Clarke said: “HAVAS Just:: is a communications agency that offers PR as well as medical and marketing communications to its clients, and I wanted to keep working across these diverse areas. Access to the HAVAS network was also a huge selling point, with the opportunity to work more directly with agencies and specialists that tap into alternative areas from medical anthropology to music in health, new areas that can help disrupt traditional communications approaches.”
Farrow, one of the newest Justees, said: “The career progression pathway is transparent and the company offers personalised coaching as well as access to the HAVAS Kings Cross campus training programme, which I think is really positive for someone at the beginning of their career, like me.”view more - Hires, Wins & BusinessHavas UK, Mon, 25 Feb 2019 16:03:29 GMT
