Onsite Occupational Health Nurse with Focus on Infection Prevention Control (IPC)

At Veritas, we believe PR is antiquated.  Instead, we pride ourselves in being earned media specialists that leverage the credibility of third-parties to protect and amplify a company or brand.  In fact, our number one mission is finding and activating influencers who impact purchase decisions, and ultimately drive the bottom line for our clients.

If you are the most influential in your discipline, we would love to hear from you.  We are part of the MDC Partners network and are currently looking for the best talent that agency has to offer.
