Associate Medical Editors: FuEL, McCann Health Medical Communications
Do you have a passion for clear, high-quality communication and an interest in science? As a Medical Editor, you’ll be able to combine these talents and make a difference to the healthcare community.

What is Medical Editing?
Medical Editors work with experts in the healthcare community to produce materials that clearly convey complex science in an accurate and audience-appropriate way. You will be responsible for editing, proofreading, and ensuring all materials we produce meet our high standards.  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?
Previous editing experience and a relevant degree would be advantageous, but we do not require previous experience in the industry, as we provide all the necessary training. Strong attention to detail 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!
