Lead Digital Marketing Consultant (36 hours/week)

Join Europe's fastest growing digital marketing agency in life sciences

Join Europe’s fastest-growing digital marketing agency in the life sciences sector.
Sciential is a digital marketing agency that provides digital marketing solutions for companies operating in the life sciences sector. We help our clients execute successful campaigns by delivering expertise in life sciences, digital marketing and creative concepts. From our HQ in The Netherlands, we have served over 65+ clients in Europe and Asia. Since 2020, we’ve grown to a team of 15+ experts and we’re looking for new team members who want to join our journey of fast growth.

Are you our new Lead Digital Marketing Consultant?
We are looking for a Lead Digital Marketing Consultant with 5+ years of experience in digital marketing consulting. In this role, you lead and manage digital marketing projects for our clients, while coaching and supporting your colleagues. You come up with strategies and execution plans that help them reach their marketing goals, such as branding, awareness, lead generation or growth. Campaigns are typically organized around life sciences offerings, such as preclinical research services, clinical trial services, lab equipment, software products, medical e-learning or digital therapeutics. With your digital advertising know-how, insights and tactics, you help our clients achieve success.

What does your typical day look like?
On a Friday at 8:45hr, you start the day with a team standup and get coffee together. At 9:00hr you have a brainstorming meeting scheduled with one of your clients about a new lead-generation campaign. You present some example banners that the media specialist colleague has created. After the meeting, you follow up by e-mail to recap the topics and action points. The rest of the morning you coach and help colleagues with analyzing the performance of ad campaigns on Google and LinkedIn. Busy mornings like these make you hungry, so at 12.30hr, you have lunch together with the team in the canteen (or on the rooftop on sunny days). At 13:00hr, you lead a kick-off meeting with a new client in which you discuss advertising channels, target audience personas and the strategy of the campaigns. Then you prepare a follow-up brainstorming meeting that will take place at the clients’ location next week. You make sure all tasks are divided among your project team members. Finally, before the weekend starts, you double-check all advertising campaigns of your clients, making sure they are “weekend proof”. Is everything under control? Then at 17:00hr, we have a Friday drink and snack!

What you will bring to the table:

Our ideal candidate has 5+ years of working experience and an interest in life sciences topics, such as biotechnology, medical technology, pharmaceuticals or healthcare. In addition, we're looking for a team member with the following qualifications:

  • You have a BSc or MSc degree, preferably in business, marketing or life sciences;
  • You have 5+ years of demonstrated experience with Digital Marketing Consultancy

  • You are passionate about digital marketing and interested in the life sciences industry;
  • You are analytical and enjoy diving into data;
  • You have strong project management and communication skills; and
  • You speak English fluently.

    • Salary between €4,000 and €5,500 per month, depending on the level of experience;
