Medical Communications Agency. Central London.
Medical Writer – Multiple Therapies
Mixed Bag. Mélange. Array. Medley. Smorgasbord.
If this combination of words excite and you you want to work across an assortment of scientific & commercial medical writing projects, at one of the UK’s biggest medical communication agencies, this Medical Writer vacancy is the one for which you should fire off your CV.
The Employer :
Simply put – it’s a big player in the business of healthcare communications. Therefore this means that you get to benefit from what can only be described as unrivalled career & personal development opportunities, for example to Senior Medical Writer. While this role offers a wonderful mixture of work across disease areas and deliverables you may later choose to specialise in a particular therapy area or type of work; from Publications to CME, and even working for a healthcare charity account.
A key benefit of this large agency is that you have a terrific internal support structure. This includes an internal training academy which enables online and in person learning (when safe again). Other support includes a digital team, a presentations team, and a meetings team to handle the logistics of virtual and live meetings. This means you get to work with plenty of resources which therefore enables you to focus on writing the best in class scientific narrative.
Currently the entire scientific content team is working remotely which means that content for scientific meetings, digital content, eLearning programmes, and more is being typed up on kitchen tables up and down the country. However as the UK eases out of lockdown, and we begin to return to offices, you’ll have the opportunity to work from the company’s offices in Central London all the time, some of the time, or you may choose to stay working remotely. In short this business excels at accommodating flexible working options, both in terms of daily working schedules and location.
Medical Writer – Multiple Therapies : Your Responsibilities
You will put pencil to paper, fingertips to keyboard, and thinking cap to head, in order to deliver copy which engages, educates, influences, and motivates. The audience is a wonderful mix of the great & good – from HealthCare Professionals, to Medical Sales Liaison teams, to Patients, and Payers. As you may have guessed the therapy areas run from A to Z. The deliverables for which you will write scientific and commercial editorial are equally varied – from manuscripts to sales aids.
Furthermore, you attend meetings with clients, as well as site visits (virtually for now). This activity not only allows you to truly develop your understanding of the client’s scientific and commercial goals, it also facilitates the creation of a trusted relationship with the client’s medical affairs, and brand teams – because after-all we need to see as well hear each other in order to build a partnership of trust – albeit in person or via our screens.
Medical Writer – Multiple Therapies – Application Criteria
- At least 1 year of experience working in a Medical Communications Agency, or a Pharmaceutical Company
- Experience of writing scientific and commercial copy for either medical education, medical communications, medical information, or healthcare marketing
- Good team player comfortable interacting with client services, editorial, and other internal teams regarding scientific content development
- Higher level life science education such as MSc or PhD
Covid Secure Recruiting :
Interviews are carried out via video conferences. An offer is made without the necessity of an
in-person meeting. Therefore do not delay in applying for this medical writing job.
