You’re driven, resourceful, and above all else - remarkably smart.  You love a good challenge. You are the first to roll up your sleeves and work with relentless energy until you solve the unsolvable, beat the unbeatable and you always come out on top. Passable doesn’t cut it – you’ve got fire in your belly to learn more, do more and be more. For you, the sweetest success is shared success and you’re known for your good nature. You’ll fit right in at Syneos Health where we surround ourselves with the most talented and agile professionals in the industry, but we check our egos at the door.

This is a hybrid position - working 1-2 days a week in the Morrisville, NC office. 
We encourage a flexible work arrangement to promote a healthy work-life balance.


The Creative Manager, Design (CMD) is chiefly responsible for designing various client-bound training modalities and internal marketing collateral as well as overseeing such efforts of junior and contract designers. The main goal of the CMD is to ensure consistent, high-quality output of all such deliverables on a daily basis.

The Creative Manager, Design will split their time between doing actual graphic design work and guiding the design oversight of several larger projects with respect to the visuals/designs, as designated by the Associate Director, Creative Services (ADCS). The CMD will essentially be the design lead (termed the “Creative Strategist”) on select projects and will meet with the ADCS and project team to ensure all deliverables within each such project are consistent in approach and style. The CMD will also help to track the needs of other designers on the same project.

This position will likely grow in time to take on an even greater role in project oversight and management, while reducing hands-on design work.

Colleagues and management on our team are very supportive of each other, and respect the value that design brings to our deliverables.

  • Establish new ways to visually present work for client proposals and marketing collateral as well as investigate new, viable paths to bring overall innovation to our client deliverables
  • Maintain consistent and open communication with colleagues to keep the daily workflow moving ahead
  • Provide general artistic input, feedback, and coaching for junior team members and contractors, as needed
  • Communicate with clients directly to explain design ideas, methods, and goals
  • Proactively address potential problems along the process of creating deliverables as well as addressing any cause of dissatisfaction from colleagues or clients as they may emerge
  • Assist project managers as needed with the allocation of design resources and project budgeting and timelines with regards to design-related tasks, requirements, and standards
  • Properly organize your work against weekly deliverables
