Medical Editor

Up to £40K Depending on experience | London |  Editorial |  Permanent  | Ref:886077



Phillip Hall

Which team do you work in?
Healthcare Communications.

Which area do you specialise in?
Medical Communications and Medical Education 

How do you keep up-to-date with the issues in your sector?
Communicating with candidates on a regular basis, over the phone, email and through LinkedIn. Also meeting candidates over a coffee is a great way to learn more. I try to get to as many networking events as possible; meeting with clients on a regular basis to find out what they're doing really helps too. 

What's your favourite film and why?
My favourite film would have to be...'Once Upon a Time in the West'. A classic Western film that offers everything.

If you could invent one thing what would it be?
I'd invent a time-machine, or maybe something easier to use like 'Bernard's Watch'. It would be ideal to be able to stop time every now and again to catch up on some sleep or spend some extra time finding that perfect candidate!

What makes you #DistinctlyDifferent? 
I'd like to think that I really get to understand what people are looking for in their next role and deliver to that. This, coupled with keeping regular contact with clients to see what their situation is, allows me to match the right candidate to the right company, as each Medical Communications Agency offers something slightly different. This may sound like ordinary recruitment to some, but you have to act differently and go the extra mile in this sector to make it work for everybody involved!


The Role

Medical Editor - Digital Healthcare Agency - Central London - Up to £40K Depending on experience


The Company

We're working with a very strong creative marketing communications agency based in London. They're based in over 24 countries with 36 different offices with circa 180 people based out of their London office. They work with a huge variety of brands including Coca-Cola, easyJet, Microsoft and Cisco, however they've just won a large piece of business with a well-known Pharmaceutical company. Due to this they're looking to expand the medical team by bringing in a Medical Editor.

This role would be ideal for any Medical Editors working in either a Medical Communications agency or a Healthcare Advertising agency who is looking for a change - something more creative working for a more brand focused agency.

  • Wide range of clients, covering retail, technology, pharma and automotive

  • Very forward-thinking agency at the cutting edge of technology and innovation

  • Part of a larger group of agencies, offering opportunities to move across the business

  • Opportunity to work in a more strategic environment, along with creating exiting content

  • Excellent staff welfare program, make sure individual voices matter!


The Role

  • Working closely with clients and acting as point of call for editorial issues

  • Opportunity to work in a more strategic environment, along with creating exiting content

  • Interacting with agency team members regarding brand tactics

  • Leading editorial daily status, kick-off, and other wider team meetings to discuss the brand

  • Ensuring all pieces conform to the client's specific style and guidelines.



  • Ideally, experience in product launch - US & Global

  • Stickler for accuracy and perfectionism!

  • Fluency in the review of digital/interactive/tablet as well as print

  • Strong research skills


What should you do next?

A great opportunity for somebody looking for something outside of Medical Communications, while keeping some of the science! Really impressive agency with a number of high profile accounts including a newly won pharma client.
