A day in the life of...

An experienced Medical Writer responsible for developing scientifically accurate and compelling editorial content to support both medical and marketing pharmaceutical communications. This includes managing projects through the correct editorial process to ensure we deliver content of the highest standard that meets the client's aims and objectives.

As an agency we always look to challenge the status quo and bring a genuinely different and creative way of thinking to the projects we deliver for clients and the way we work together. Members of our team need to be enthusiastic and committed to helping us continually innovate, evolve and develop.

We are an integrated agency and Medical Writers at Ogilvy will work on projects that span medical education, promotional marketing, digital and market access. Therefore, this is an outstanding opportunity for a Medical Writer to further develop their scientific communication expertise across these disciplines in a creative, imaginative team and an environment that supports professional and personal development.

We rely on you to...

We are looking for candidates who have a passion for the communication of science and are looking for the opportunity to further develop their skills in a creative environment. They will need to be able to develop compelling and accurate scientific content while applying the highest editorial standards. A track record of being able to tailor your approach to different audiences and for a range of different formats is an advantage.

We are looking for organised and self-motivated candidates who take ownership of their work and are committed to achieving the highest editorial standards through effective teamwork with both their editorial and account colleagues. Understanding the value of an editorial process and being able to manage projects through this to ensure all editorial content meets the client's aims and objectives, is fully supported by the scientific literature and is of the highest standard is vital.

All of our medical writers are expected to liaise with clients and external experts and as such need to be committed to providing excellent client service.

Our Medical Writers need a good understanding of the pharmaceutical industry and the clinical development process.
