Do you have a passion for bringing ideas to life? Do you have knowledge of healthcare marketing channels to mould ideas into something tangible and engage brands with their audiences?

Our industry is ever-evolving, and this is a rare and exciting opportunity for someone to help us continue leading the change – through the direction of our agencies’ medical and commercial content.

Comprised of PhD-level medical writers and award-winning healthcare copywriters, the department is enviably positioned to deliver on the entire spectrum of content that healthcare brands demand.

Located in McCann Worldgroup’s iconic art deco car park premises by Russell Square in London, McCann Health UK is dedicated to telling the truth and doing it well.

  • Excellent written English and ability to present
  • Experience with training and mentoring other writers

What might set you apart from the rest 

  • Award-winning credentials, and a passion for guiding other copywriters to creative success
  • A passion for medical sciences, and retaining its integrity in promotional communications
  • Experience in formal line management, including appraisals and career development
  • A desire to break free from industry clichés and conventions

What we offer 

  • A highly competitive salary and benefits
  • Tremendous opportunities for personal growth and development
  • A vibrant, collaborative office environment
  • Industry-leading global connectivity throughout the McCann Health network
  • Strong links with our McCann Worldgroup sister companies and wider IPG network

We’re focused on health, happiness and humanity, ensuring we make a meaningful difference both to our clients’ businesses, and to people’s lives. At McCann Health UK we are recognised for our idea-centricity: how every piece of work we produce is founded upon a creative idea first and foremost, before execution or tactical considerations.
