Our success has led to continued expansion in both the range of services we offer and our global presence. We are now looking for a talented and enthusiastic Senior Medical Writer.

As a Senior Medical Writer, you will use your scientific expertise to develop and deliver innovative medical communications projects. Taking the lead role in projects where required, you will be responsible for producing high-quality scientific content for a range of printed and computer-based scientific materials from technical manuscripts to congress materials, interactive web projects and sales aids.

The role will involve reviewing and interpreting data from preclinical and clinical research articles and clinical study reports, as the basis of creating scientific written materials in keeping with project briefs.  

You should be passionate about communicating science to a variety of audiences and be able to add a creative edge and maintain quality standards. You will be interacting with some of the world’s leading scientists and physicians on critical therapeutic and scientific issues to make cutting-edge science accessible to those who need it.

To succeed, you must have a BSc in the life sciences, ideally combined with an MSc or PhD. You will have considerable relevant medical writing experience within medical communications or pharmaceutical environments, with demonstrable experience of delivering across a broad range of medical communication editorial outputs. A track record of developing strong relationships with multiple stakeholders, combined with exceptional written and verbal communication skills, are essential to this role. You will also have extensive prioritisation and multi-tasking expertise, with excellent attention to detail.
