Marketing Executive (Remote in UK or local)

Who we are

We’re a digital customer experience agency, collaborating with healthcare and pharmaceutical organisations around the world to create digital experiences that are truly aligned to their audience needs. Our services fall under three core pillars: strategy, user research and design.

In joining Graphite, you’ll become part of a creative and diverse team that genuinely cares — about our people, our customers, and the patients and healthcare practitioners that are impacted by the work that we do.

We’re headquartered in Brighton with a workspace in London and our teams work remotely across the UK. Ideally you will live within two hours of a Graphite office hub (currently Brighton or London), so it’s practical to meet the team and clients from time to time. If you do live further afield please don’t let this put you off, we’ll consider all applicants.
