Associate Medical Writer

Associate Medical Writers: FuEL, McCann Health Medical Communications

Do you love science and have a passion for clear communication? As a Medical Writer, you’ll be able to combine these talents and make a difference to the healthcare community.

What is Medical Writing?
Medical Writers work with experts in the healthcare community to produce materials that clearly convey complex science in an accurate and audience-appropriate way. Our work is varied, ranging from scientific publications, to medical meetings, to animations for online materials – no two projects are ever the same, which makes our work exciting and fulfilling.

What is FuEL?
FuEL (Future Experts and Leaders) is our well established, entry-level training and development programme for talented people at the beginning of their journey in Medical Communications. The FuEL programme combines dedicated training and ‘on the job’ development within an innovative, nurturing and open-minded community.

Why choose FuEL?
We believe that everyone can become an expert, a leader in their field – our promise is to provide you with the skills, confidence and experience you need to fulfil that potential. Our dedicated trainers work alongside our talented, client-facing teams to harness and develop your talents.

What qualifications do I need?
We are looking for people with a passion for science. You must have a minimum of a 2:1 in a life sciences degree. We do not require previous experience in the industry, as we provide all the necessary training. A natural aptitude for writing is important, as is the ability to work in a diverse team and fast-paced environment.
We have successfully recruited and developed people from a range of backgrounds, so if you’re looking for a change, we want to hear from you!
