Position: Full Time

Job Details:
Langland, a Publicis Health company, is the only health communications agency that thinks further across Clinical Trial Experience, Medical Strategy & Education, Public Relations & Policy, and Advertising, to create unique value with visionary clients.

What we believe

Health brings us together. In the diseases we suffer, the medicines we create, and the causes we champion, health shows us our collective humanity. When we break the barriers that divide us, when we think further, we can create healthier futures, together.

A passion for craft

Having expert thinking is only part of our story. To ensure excellence in everything we make, we have centred our disciplines around three essential crafts: science, strategy and creativity.

Job Description

Owing to a demand for more editorial work from our clients and a flourishing editorial team, we are now looking to hire a new Senior Medical Writer. At this senior level position, you will be the content lead on several key accounts, responsible for both ideating and creating scientifically sound, strategic and impactful content for a range of initiatives (including congress activities, training materials, and medical and marketing programmes), and for guiding more junior writers on all aspects of their development.

The main therapy areas we are working across currently are oncology, dermatology, HIV, rare diseases, respiratory medicine and CNS disorders, but regular new business wins will almost certainly provide an opportunity to work in other areas.

Job responsibilities:
  • Develops clear, compelling and user-friendly content from brief development at the outset through to project delivery with little guidance
  • Provides strong scientific counsel across ≥2 therapy areas/account teams
  • Ensures the timely day-to-day delivery of scientific content, ensuring quality, scientific accuracy and integrity
  • Trains and mentors junior writers on editorial skills and company processes (with guidance), ensuring high standards are maintained; may provide people management with the guidance of an experienced people manager
  • Provides research and content support for pitch development and other new business initiatives; identifies the strategic implications of product data and the therapeutic landscape and confidently presents their research in pitches
  • Provides training for the full team on good practice/industry guidelines
If you are ready to join our close-knit, ambitious team and play a role in the development and delivery of high-quality medical education programmes, whilst experiencing a myriad of personal and professional development opportunities and collaborating across our four health disciplines, we’d love to hear from you.

Furthermore, we operate a flexible working policy to help ensure your work-life balance is maintained, so whether you want to work from home or from our offices, we can accommodate.

*This role can be based out of London or Windsor with added flexibility to occasionally work from home


Your approach
  • Creative: willing to sensitively challenge the status quo
  • Strategic: able to understand the big picture as well as the fine details
  • Proactive: able to organise and drive your own work
  • Communicative: eager to work with others in an integrated team

Your skills and experience
  • A talent for writing
  • Good at understanding and communicating complex science (you should hold a bachelor’s degree in the life sciences [2:1 or above] and ideally a master’s degree or PhD)
  • Able to develop strong relationships –based on exceptional verbal, as well as written, communication abilities –and comfortable providing advice and guidance to others
  • Medical writing experience within a medical communications agency or an in-house pharma med comms team, demonstrating:
  • The ability to craft standard communications to high editorial and scientific standards with minimal supervision, and more complex communications to the same standards with supervision
  • Management of client and expert communications relating to content creation
  • Review of content to ensure high standards and brief alignment
  • Guidance of junior writer development through informal or formal mentorship
