Blue Latitude Health is a creative marketing consultancy. Founded in 2003 by Fred Bassett and Martin Brass as a marketing consultancy with digital expertise, we now work with some of the world’s most influential healthcare brands. From our early days working with companies in the music and digital industries, we have evolved into a healthcare and pharma focussed organisation.
As a creative marketing consultancy, we offer the vision of a consultancy with the creativity of an agency – something quite special in the healthcare and pharma landscape. As a result, we’ve seen some exciting growth over the last two years, and from a team of about 30 at the end of 2014, we have expanded to an astounding 52 full time team members at the start of 2016. In addition to our full-time staff, we currently work with around 10-15 freelancers at any given time across our different capabilities. Many of the freelancers we work with come back to us time and again because they enjoy working with us.
To get a better understanding of why freelancing at Blue Latitude Health is different, we sat down with a few freelancers from across the different teams to ask them.
One of the recurring themes that came up in our interviews with the freelancers was the inclusive environment at BLH. They all had quite similar things to say about it:
We’ll let the freelancers tell you what we mean by that in their own words:
In our chats with the freelancers, they brought up how independently we work at Blue Latitude Health as a real draw for them. It’s not earth-shattering as an approach, but it’s not as common as it should be.
At the end of the day, freelancers are an important part of our teams at Blue Latitude Health. They bring new eyes to long term projects, new skills to our teams, extra hands when resource is tight, and lively conversation to the lunch hour.
If you’re interested in hearing about our freelance roles at Blue Latitude Health, please get in touch with our talent team! Our active vacancies are listed on the Join Us page, but we’re also always interested in hearing from freelancers across design, project management, account management, copywriting, and strategic planning with a passion for healthcare.
