Editorial Director – Medical Education
London or North West

This MedComms agency is making the world a better place. Bringing the art of science and medical communications to life, they specialise in campaigns, projects and strategies that are as bold as they are brilliant. With an impressive array of clients from the healthcare, pharma and biotech world, they put people at the heart of their work – resulting in compelling results that speak directly to patients and healthcare professionals. Working on a global scale, this is an agency that is going places – and they want their team to join them on that journey. That means you might have the scope to travel to their international offices, you’ll have access to the types of training and development opportunities that are eye-wateringly progressive, and you’ll be encouraged to get involved in high-profile campaigns that will set your CV apart from the competition. They also place a huge emphasis on being playful – which is something that every organisation could do with a little dose of!

The role:
The editorial outputs that this agency produces are quite spectacular – and that is something that you will be overseeing when you join them on their jaw-droppingly creative mission. Taking overall responsibility for the editorial team group, you will be involved in every aspect of their innovative work. From planning resources and monitoring the quality of what they are producing to line-managing a team of highly-skilled staff and conducting their performance management reviews, you will have direct control over the success of their cutting-edge medical communications solutions. Working closely with the client services team, you will also be instrumental in helping the business evolve, spotting opportunities for organic growth and ensuring you are the forefront of new development opportunities. Big, bold and brave – this is an agency where you can make your mark – and where your editorial and leadership talents will be valued by huge brands.

You’ll need:
• Current knowledge of ABPI, industry standards and compliance issues. When you lead your group editorial meetings, you
need to be sure that you’re keeping the team on the right tracks.
• The type of communication and people management capabilities that will make your employees laud you as the best boss
they’ve ever had.
• A good awareness (or the ability to attain awareness) of therapeutic areas, competitors and new products.
• Knockout medical writing and editing skills, gained over at least 15 years in the healthcare/ medical communications sector,
with experience of leading a scientific or medical team.
• Science kudos. You’ll need a life sciences degree, ideally combined with a higher degree such as a Masters, PhD or MD.
