Our business is people. We aim to develop a team and provide an environment where expertise and creativity can flourish.

Account Executive, Healthcare

Introduction 

Help us shape the future 

Madano is committed to building a better world through intelligent and creative communications. We work with clients who are solving the major challenges of our time through science and technology – helping them tell their story, make the right connections, change attitudes and influence behaviours.  

Our people are highly motivated and engaged, always encouraged to make their voices heard and given the opportunity to progress. And while we deal with serious issues, we make sure we don’t take ourselves too seriously along the way. Questioning accepted wisdom, always looking for alternative solutions, ours is a purpose-driven culture where everyone pulls together to make a lasting difference.  

We have resolved to work only with organisations whose values align with our own. And we employ people who demonstrate a genuine commitment to delivering positive change.

We approach our clients’ challenges and situations from every angle, delivering meaningful outcomes that improve the lives of patients and society as a whole. Our integrated, strategic communications approach is driven by insight and creativity, coupled with an in-depth knowledge of the science and healthcare environment.
