Philip Chin

What's my job title?
President, UK Publicis Health

What does that mean?
I have overall responsibility for all of the Publicis Health advertising, digital, medical education and public relations agencies in the UK. Specifically, this means that I provide the leadership to ensure that individually and as a collective our UK agencies help transform our clients’ businesses, through the alchemy of creativity and technology.

When will I meet you in The Lab recruitment process?
We’ll meet each other on the Lab Assessment Day and for the successful candidates we’ll meet in the agencies as we go about our daily work.

What makes me proud about working for Publicis Health? 
Health is mankind’s most precious possession, so to have the honour of leading so many talented people who are focused on creating solutions which help people live healthier lives is pretty amazing.

Why am I involved in the Lab?
I can see no reason why I wouldn’t be involved. To be able to provide opportunities to people who would otherwise not have access to them is rewarding in so many ways. Everyone deserves a chance to pursue their passion.

The Lab. I’m really proud that we where the first healthcare agency/network in the world to create a scheme like this.

Juliet Harris

What is my job title?
Group Chief Talent Officer, Europe Publicis Health

What does that mean?
I lead our people strategy and the People Team. This touches all aspects of what it means to work within any of our agencies. At Publicis Health, we put people first in our thinking, our business decisions and our relationships with clients.

When will I meet you in The Lab recruitment process?
At the Assessment Day and when you join us!

What makes me proud about working for Publicis Health?
How far we have come as a company in the last 5 years. It is amazing. The calibre of people, the ideas, innovation and creativity is staggering. I am deeply touched by the work executed by our people which changes the lives of patients, relatives, doctors and carers, for the better.

Why am I involved in the Lab?
It is a powerful initiative that finds special people who may become my colleagues. It provides an open playing-field for people to discover and enter into the world of health and wellbeing communications. It gives people the chance to experience what it is that we do. Over the last 3 years, we have found people who have made us think differently and change the way we do things… we want to keep on doing this. The Lab generates ideas for our charity partners and clients from the Assessment Day and onwards, these may then go on to be used within campaigns and projects.

Jessica Rose

What's my job title?
Talent Adviser, UK Publicis Health

What does that mean?
I support employees from across the UK Publicis Health network with everyday queries whilst working closely alongside other members of the People Team to deliver our people plan and help manage individuals’ career journeys.  This is my second year working on The Lab and I'm thrilled to be involved again.   

When will I meet you in The Lab recruitment process?
Some of you will hear from me in September as I’ll be one of the team carrying out screening calls, I’ll also be around during the Assessment Day as I am based in Kensington Village. For those of you who are successful, I’ll act as your first point of contact in the People Team throughout your Lab experience.

What makes me proud about working for Publicis Health?
The Publicis Health network is so varied yet everyone who works here has a fantastic work ethic and is supportive of others’ successes.  I am proud to work for a company that consistently places emphasis on employee wellbeing and diversity through programmes such as Healthy You, Viva Women and Egalité.

Why am I involved in the Lab?
I believe that those with a passion for the creative industry and the desire to work hard should have a chance to demonstrate what they are capable of without formal qualifications acting as a barrier to success. The previous candidates that we have found from The Lab are proof that, when raw talent is nurtured, it can lead to something very special.  I am excited to see what bright sparks we can attract to Publicis Health this year because I’m confident that we will find people with the potential to be future industry leaders.
