Job Description     

Medical Writer

Our Medical Copy team sits as a division of our Creative Department. The team is responsible for accurately interpreting and disseminating key information about our clients’ products and the diseases they treat, informing development of a range of scientifically accurate educational and promotional materials, and contributing towards literature research for scientific strategy. The team works closely with copywriters, designers and art directors, on multi-media campaign content, including sales aids, eDetails, websites, videos and animations, leave pieces, and patient information materials, and assist our clients in producing accurate global and local communications for healthcare professionals and consumers in various target markets.

As a medical writer at McCann Health you will be working across several therapy areas to write a range of content deliverables, ensuring copy is appropriate for target audience, of high quality, scientifically accurate and aligned to the relevant brand. The role involves developing and maintaining reference packs and proof reading documents produced by other members of the team, ensuring written materials abide by the ABPI Code of Practice and are backed up by the necessary research, and contributing towards literature research for scientific strategy.

This is a client facing role and you will be participating in briefing sessions and client meetings where required.

Skills and experience required: 

  • Experience in a Medical Writing role
  • Educated to at least Master’s degree level in life sciences, medicine, pharmacy or a related discipline. A PhD would be an advantage, but is not essential
  • Proven ability to work under pressure as business needs arise
  • Excellent written English (vocabulary and grammar), with good attention to detail
  • Good interpersonal and awareness skills
  • Excellent IT skills, particularly using Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Powerpoint

About us:

The McCann Health network is one of the world’s most creatively awarded and connected communities of experts. 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
