Jango Comms is picked for global AstraZeneca job

Anglo-Swedish drugs giant AstraZeneca has hired Jango

mmunications for strategic PR and communications advice surrounding

the launch of a number of global brands.



AstraZeneca declined to comment on which brands are included in the

brief or the nature of the remit, but it is understood the account will

include integrated communications, focusing on PR and marketing

advice.



Jango Communications MD Maggie Malpas-Spencer said: 'It (the account

win) arose from discussions with AstraZeneca about how Jango could apply

our strategic and tactical capabilities, and bring a communications

focus onto the successful entry of major new brands through integrated

strategies.'



AstraZeneca boosted its in-house PR team earlier this year with a raft

of senior appointments (PRWeek, 27 April).



In April, AstraZeneca UK head of PR and communications Fiona Tigar also

announced the firm was hoping to fill two newly created posts - internal

communications manager and publications editor. A decision is expected

by next month.
