Job Details:
Healthcare Consultancy Group (HCG) is a global group of scientifically rigorous healthcare communications agencies. In the UK, we have 2 companies; Chameleon Communications and Synergy Medical:

We want to engage with talented Scientific Directors who have a desire to push the boundaries of medical communications. If you are looking for a new challenge, we would love to tell you about the great things that are happening at HCG. With UK offices in London and Manchester, we offer a great deal of flexibility and this position can be based anywhere in the UK. Work life balance and wellbeing is very important to us and we operate in an agile working environment, with home working and flexible hours.

Having long standing trusted strategic partnerships with most of the leading pharmaceutical companies, we work in therapy areas such as Vaccines (including CV19), Oncology, Immunology, Rheumatology, Haematology, Dermatology, Rare Diseases, Ophthalmology, Diabetes and Cardiovascular – to name a few! We offer opportunities to work on blockbuster and niche products, on publications accounts and innovative educational programmes. Our agencies craft evidence into stories that shape decisions and drive medicine. With the conviction of expertise and the confidence of authority, we challenge established wisdom to inform and engage different audiences.

With a genuine focus on quality and a real investment in training, we have a great personal development program - and with large global accounts, we can accommodate a wide-range of disciplines and job functions. The work we do is rewarding and we actually see how it positively affects people, in real time, with our ‘Work with a Purpose‘ Patient Webinars. This is where we get to meet real patients, who tell us their story and how medical communications has helped them along the way.

As a Scientific Director you will be able to understand the broad context of a therapy area, scientific data and clinical practice – possibly across more than one account. You will have the ability to effectively delegate to your team and to guide reports in developing their skills, through mentoring and reviewing output to add value and ensure scientific accuracy.
