The Important Bits

As a Scientific Specialist you will be tasked with managing a publications account in Ophthalmology and would be required to travel 2/3 times a year in the EU/US. The company you would be joining are a global Clinical Research Organisation with a strong reputation for their standards and quality of work. To help you achieve this you are given the freedom to work independently and intelligently.

Whilst this position is being hired for a new business win the company's excellent reputation ensures there is a wide range of projects and therapeutic areas to work on and they will develop your career based on your own interests and desires.

Stand Out Features

Senior Medical Writers are in huge demand and that's not looking to change over the next 12 months. What makes this opportunity different is that it will give you a chance to experience an alternative working environment from the Med Comms agency. Working in a Clinical Research Organisation (CRO) is different for a number of reasons, much larger organisation, truly global reach (Teams in the US, China, India and the Uk-covering Europe), more in-depth client relationships, more diverse colleagues to collaborate with and various development opportunities available in the future.

About you

You will be a Writer who can communicate easily with stakeholders and colleagues who values the importance of team work.
You will need to have a minimum of 3 years Medical Writing experience in an agency environment ideally with some exposure to Ophthalmology but it is not essential if you can show a willingness to learn a new area. My client would prefer candidates who have had some degree of higher scientific education, MSc, PhD, MD etc. but if you have had a strong career in MedComms without completing this please contact me to discuss your individual circumstances.

I would be worried if you didn't not have a keen eye for detail, scientific understanding and the ability to work to deadlines after 3 years in the industry these things will of course come naturally to you.
