Due to ambitious growth plans and the professional development Barrington James are partnered with a global medical communication agency, where their expertise includes medical communications, public relations, clinical trial services and market access communications/consultancy for pharmaceutical, biotech, medical device, animal health and functional food companies. Based in the UK they are looking to hire a number of experienced Medical Writers (at a variety of levels). Whatever level you join at, your role will be truly varied, giving you the opportunity to expand your experience further than just the hands-on writing. Given their collaborative multi-office approach, you could be based in either one of their offices or be 100% home-based. They are also open to part-time working patterns. The role: Working with the other members of the Copy team, the role will involve a wide range of writing, from heavily scientific medical writing to conceptual copy for healthcare advertising. The role will entail working closely with both account handlers and art directors to deliver persuasive and informative copy. The ideal candidate: You will have a minimum of 2 years' promotional medical writing experience in a healthcare related agency and a life sciences degree. You will have an excellent ability to communicate your ideas, listen to others and adapt. The Role will involve:
• Creating compelling and imaginative copy
• Communicating complex scientific information in a clear and appropriate way
• Acting as agency scientific lead on your brands and liaising with client medics
• Working with art directors to develop advertising concepts and headlines
• Taking an active role in pitches
• Presenting work and attending client meetings and teleconferences
• A good knowledge of the ABPI Code of Practice
• Using Zinc and Veeva Vault What you'll receive: Employee skills development and career progression is a key focus for the agency. We provide ongoing on the job training, and where appropriate team members will be funded to enroll in training courses to address specific development needs. Team members receive regular annual reviews to ensure continued development and progression - we have no set headcount limits imposed on us for promotion which means people are advanced on merit as and when they demonstrate their ability to take the next step. Every team member will have the chance to work closely with both line managers and directors too, giving the opportunity to learn from more experienced staff. All our owner/directors work actively on accounts and are directly involved with mentoring team members. Here we consider ourselves a friendly bunch and we encourage a social environment. We provide drinks on a Friday afternoon, there's also a cake club, a book group, people go running together, there's tennis in the local park in summer and groups of us can be found in the local bars and restaurants pretty regularly of an evening. In addition to these, we hold seasonal company parties where the whole agency will go out to undertake an activity, followed by a team dinner and drinks.
