Creative Director, Communications

Seattle, WA
PATH is an international organization that drives transformative innovation to save lives and improve health, especially among women and children. We accelerate innovation across five platforms-vaccines, drugs, diagnostics, devices, and system and service innovations-that harness our entrepreneurial insight, scientific and public health expertise, and passion for health equity. By mobilizing partners around the world, we take innovation to scale, working alongside countries primarily in Africa and Asia to tackle their greatest health needs. Together, we deliver measurable results that disrupt the cycle of poor health.

PATH’s Global Engagement & Communications Team leads ​PATH's brand, communications, policy and advocacy, philanthropy, business development and strategic corporate engagement efforts. We tell the story of PATH's work internally and externally, support the efforts of governments and policymakers around the world to adopt healthy policies, and inspire donors and corporations to partner with us and support our work.

Under the leadership of the Chief Marketing Officer (CMO), we are currently transforming PATH’s brand and communications strategy to drive revenue, awareness, and overall impact for the organization. We recently hired three world-class creative firms to rebrand the organization, completely redesign our website, and reimagine our overall marketing efforts with a focus on data-driven communications that increase PATH’s overall impact.

We are now recruiting our first-ever Creative Director to provide overall creative leadership for the organization, lead the rebrand process and global rollout of the new brand platform, and build and lead a global team of creative designers, writers, photographers, and other producers. The Creative Director will report to the CMO, lead the organization’s Creative Team, and be part of a global leadership team along with our Head of Marketing Strategy and a Head of Media.

As the most-senior creative leader in the organization, our CD will:
  • Partner with the CMO and other key leaders on PATH’s rebrand; lead a global, multi-year rollout of our new brand platform. (Our brand firm partner is Manual Creative.)
  • Lead the creative transformation of our website and other key touchpoints. (Our interactive partner is Instrument.)
  • Own overall creative direction for our global organization.
  • Build and lead a global creative team, including in-house talent, external creative firms, and freelance team members; disciplines include art direction, UX, photography, video, digital media and web.
  • Help establish a global brand management discipline and manage overall use of our brand system.
  • Work closely with our global strategy and media teams to execute projects like marketing campaigns, events, digital production, and other experiences.
  • Work with creative and marketing teams from our corporate partners to build global co-brand initiatives; current partners include: Tableau, GSK, Wipro, Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson, Mapbox, and others.
