Medical Writer

Posted 31 August by The Bridge Consultancy

Most of our healthcare communications agency clients in the UK are looking for Medical Writers at levels such as Medical Writer; Senior Medical Writer and Principal Medical Writer. These agencies are normally part of huge international operations that gives them access to global resources to meet the demands of the burgeoning pharmaceutical communications industry.

Depending on your experience-level successful candidates will be responsible for any number of writing projects as such as outlines, manuscripts, abstracts, slide presentations, posters, newsletters, independent papers, articles, business cases, etc to a high level of written and technical accuracy; researching assigned projects (including internet-based research, reading any supplied background materials, journal articles, study reports, etc); preparing drafts of graphics (tables, hand-drawn figures, charts) etc. You'll usually be working closely with clients, KOLs and authors to incorporate specific requirements and any changes to written materials; fact checking (including references) and spell checking manuscripts/project materials before submission to proof-reading and then the account team. You could also be assisting and working with graphics staff and editorial support staff to provide necessary background and technical information required to complete tasks, and for review and approval of this work.

Depending on your level, you might just have a PhD, but if not, it would be massively beneficial if you had some relevant experience working in a healthcare communications agency, ideally in a science writing role.
