MedComms Executive

Details

Description

There are a variety of jobs that make up the exciting world of MedComms. And within LiNK Health Group, we have multiple agencies that work on different parts of this world. Your LiNK 360 experience will give you a grounding in three core elements of MedComms: scientific services, client services and editorial services. You’ll also have the opportunity to work with the creative and digital teams as part of your training. They give our fantastic scientific content extra dimensions with their spectacular designs and innovative tech. These roles need very specific backgrounds so aren’t part of the program itself, but you’ll still get a taste of them.

Scientific Services

This is where the cool science happens. Prepare to become immersed in the data and clinical context of your assigned account. Then you’ll learn how to use this to come up with inspiring content for doctors and patients, as well as eventually giving visionary strategic support to our clients. You’ll work across a variety of disease areas and types of treatment, including gene therapy, enzyme replacement and more – there’s always something to geek out about!

Client Services

Here you’ll get to know our clients as individuals and learn about the professional challenges they face. This will help you build enduring relationships with them. You’ll learn how to offer them strategic recommendations, while working together with other departments such as scientific services, creative, digital and editorial to bring everything together. Your role will be to make sure everything goes smoothly and that all projects follow the agreed processes and are delivered on time and on budget.

Editorial Services

As a medical editor, you’ll learn to give high-level editorial support to each account team. You’ll need to develop excellent project management skills as well as with an eye for detail that would put an eagle to shame. You’ll work closely with the rest of the scientific services team, client services and creative teams to make sure projects are finished to the highest standard

You’ll join LiNK 360 as a MedComms Executive. You’ll then follow our six-month program where you’ll experience all aspects of working in MedComms.

At the end of the program, we’ll work with you to help you decide the path you wish to take. This could be:

  • A medical writer where you’ll become an expert in writing scientific content. Your work will make a tangible difference to healthcare professionals and the patients they treat
  • An account executive where you’ll hone your project management skills and become a financial whizz. You’ll also liaise with our clients and develop your strategic thinking
  • A medical editor where you’ll develop an unerring eye for detail. You’ll keep all our content accurate and looking beautiful.

Location

We are remote, with employees working across the UK and US.
