Associate Editorial Director



Business Type: Medical Communications Agency
Job Type: Medical Writing and Editorial, Medical Communication
Job Level: Experienced (non manager)
Position: Full Time
Salary: Competitive + Excellent benefits package
Location: London, United Kingdom
Reference: ASEDDIR01/10
Job Details:
Associate Editorial Director 

We are looking for an accomplished Associate Editorial Director to join our established and dedicated Medical Communications team. You will take on the responsibility of editorial lead on particular projects, as well as having the chance to provide strategic input and be involved in business development. A rewarding part of this role is the guidance and support you can provide to more junior writers, and the Medical Communications team as a whole.

While this role would need to be based in our London office, AXON offers flexible start/end time around our core working hours and working from home would be accessible.
Your responsibilities will include (but are not limited to):
  • The review of a wide range of documents
  • Ensuring that the highest level of scientific and editorial excellence are applied to each and every project
  • Proactively identifying and developing processes/tools required by the client and/or team to help ensure editorial excellence
  • Proactively keeping abreast of editorial and scientific advances and sharing this knowledge with teams
  • Development of complex documents and materials requiring strategic insight.
  • Line management of internal team members
  • Mentoring and coaching other writers and monitoring long-term career development
  • Successfully managing client relationships
  • Providing effective counsel to clients
  • Identifying and capitalizing on business opportunities
  • Building account teams using a ‘best team’ approach
  • Leading formal client meetings

In addition to your responsibilities of originating documents, reviewing projects and managing client relationships, at AXON we actively encourage the team to be involved in activities outside of their day-to-day work. That might be involvement in our social, marketing or corporate social responsibility (CSR)  Electives, or running training sessions on topics they have a personal interest in (some recent examples include mindfulness and nutrition). We have a keen focus on training and development; as a rough guide, we suggest employees aim to complete 37.5 hours of learning in a year. Whether by online learning, classroom training, or attending external events, that’s one week a year dedicated to your development.

The ideal candidate

The ideal candidate will have:
  • Flawless attention to detail and excellent quality control skills
  • Extensive relevant writing experience, gained within a medical communications setting
  • Expertise in diabetes, and other therapy areas
  • Excellent writing, presentation and creative skills
  • Experience of reviewing at a senior level
  • Proven ability to form client relationships
  • Strong scientific background, educated to a minimum degree level in life sciences (MSc/PhD advantageous)
  • Ability to be a role model for aspiring writers

Please note that the successful candidate must have permission to work in the UK by the start of their employment.
Does this speak to your interests or expertise? At AXON we are always keen to hear from passionate, bright individuals who might fit into our collaborative and creative London-based team (one of the UK’s Top 10 Best Workplaces in 2019, UK''s Best Workplaces for Women 2019, Excellence in Wellbeing recognition).
