Medical Communications Jobs

Medical communications – sometimes shortened to Med Comms – is an umbrella term which applies to a cross section of jobs.

Medical communications – sometimes shortened to Med Comms – is an umbrella term which applies to a cross section of jobs.

This cross section including medical education, healthcare advertising, brand management, market access and healthcare PR. Each discipline is focused on the needs of pharmaceutical and healthcare businesses and organisations.

Medical communications jobs can be found either inhouse, working for a pharma or healthcare client, or within specialist communication agencies. In an agency, there are a greater variety of roles, which are split into two categories; account management and communications.

With responsibility for the day-to-day running of an account or project, an account manager for a medical communications agency is the main point of contact for the Client and is responsible for delivering their brief on time and to budget. Most account managers have a science degree or similar and they need to have great communication skills as well as being organised and calm under pressure.

Other medical communications careers include medical writers and editors. A medical writer produces high quality copy, which neatly translates complex scientific information and statistical data into engaging, on-message content which can be used for a range of marketing and promotional material. To ensure they have a good grasp on the content they are writing, medical writers tend to have a PhD in a science or relevant experience in a similar role.

Editorial Managers or Directors in medical communications agencies are usually more senior, and have experience in medical writing as well as proofing and editing copy for publication.

Medical Editors work closely with medical writers to ensure the content is clear and precise.

Starting salaries in medical communications range from £24,000 for an entry level medical writer, to £75,000 and beyond for an editorial director. Account management salaries start at £22,000 for account executives and can go up to £70,000+ for senior account directors depending on experience. Each company structures their salary and benefits differently and some of the perks are fantastic!

The hot spots for medical communications agencies are London/M25, Manchester, Cheshire, Thames Valley (Oxford, Reading, Surrey), and Hertfordshire. As a leading recruitment agency in the field, Paramount has contacts with agencies great and small across the UK, Europe and the rest of the world.
