Head of Marketing

Salary (dependent on experience) | Full Time | Hammersmith, London (Hybrid)

Introduction to Doccla

We’re Doccla, the virtual ward company. We provide patients and clinicians with the transformative power of remote patient monitoring. 

Our customers are Hospitals, Community Services, and NHS Commissioners that we partner with to deliver tech enabled virtual wards. With our technology, logistics, and support patients can be discharged from a hospital ward to a virtual one and recover in the comfort of their own homes. Patients love our care pathways and health services become more efficient; it’s a win-win. Unsurprisingly, both the number of trusts we work with and the number of patients we support are constantly growing.

Doccla is a young company with big aims and a lot of momentum. We raised a $3.3m seed round in Q3 2021 and are continuing to grow. We're solving real problems for patients and health systems. And we’re looking for dedicated people with a passion for healthcare to join us.

Role and responsibilities

In this role you will be working closely with the leadership team, sales team, and product team and be responsible for delivering Doccla’s marketing efforts. This role offers a huge chance to shape how we market Doccla and potentially to build a team around you in the future. You will initially be reporting to the founder-CCO.

Your responsibilities will likely include: 

  • Designing and planning Doccla’s marketing as well as leveraging internal and external resources to execute on these plans. We expect this will include: 
  • Content marketing
  • Case advocacy incl. case studies, white papers, blogs, etc.
  • PR
  • Paid advertising
  • Quantifying and assessing the performance of marketing activities to continuously improve our approach
  • Giving strategic input into Doccla’s brand, voice, and positioning 
  • Undertaking and maintaining Doccla’s competitive analysis to understand Doccla’s position within the wider virtual wards market


All applicants must:

  • Have at least 3 years experience marketing at a scale-up or growth focussed agency
  • Be passionate about healthcare and improvements in patient experience
  • Be independent self-starters with a bias for action comfortable with defining your team’s aims and how to get there
  • Have the analytical skill set and experience to quantify and analyse the effectiveness of Doccla’s marketing efforts e.g. define KPIs, measure campaign performance, produce campaign reports, etc.

Please also share with us if you have experience of:

  • Marketing within the healthcare industry, ideally to the NHS
  • Managing teams and of working independently

How we work

We are agile, entrepreneurial, interested in what people contribute rather than their status, and passionate about delighting clients with brilliant service.

We empower everyone to take ownership and responsibility for the company and their role within it. Whatever that role is, to thrive at Doccla, a can-do and action oriented attitude is essential. As is being a clear and open communicator who is receptive to feedback.

We practice hybrid working with offices in London and Stockholm and a team across Europe. 

Most of the team lives in London and works from the Hammersmith office one to three days per week. For your role we hope you will join us at least once or twice a week. To tempt you in, we provide a team lunch most days as well as convivial company and the perks of working from a WeWork.

We value our people. So we always look to progress existing members of the team rather than hire from outside. 

We have a generous employee equity pool that you can be part of. This means that as the company continues to grow you’ll have a share in its success. 

Finally, we also have a very generous benefits package. This includes a monthly budget of £70 to spend on Heka, our employee wellness platform. On Heka you can spend this budget on everything from Gusto boxes to massages, climbing lessons to yoga, gym memberships and more.
