A leading medical communications agency has an opportunity for a Scientific Strategy Director in either a fully remote or hybrid capacity (although to be considered for this role you must be resident and eligible for work in the UK).

You will be responsible for the strategic review of the work that the team is producing, providing expert oversight and timely, consistent and constructive feedback to the team on product differentiation, positioning and educational messages.
Coming from a medical writing background, your scientific expertise and knowledge will enable you to analyse and solve problems for both client and the delivery team, intervening when necessary to address client challenges; e.g. scientific communication platforms, external expert engagement, etc.
