McCann Health Medical Communications

Scientific Director

Recruiting for an Autumn 2020 start date
At McCann Health Medical Communications we partner with global pharmaceutical and biotechnology clients to deliver world-class solutions in strategic consultancy, medical communication, pharmacy communication, real-world evidence, regulatory support, market access, and digital excellence. These solutions all help to shape the debate on the products our clients develop. 

Our culture is respectful, supportive and empowering with a strong focus on collaboration, innovation and learning. The variety of clients we work with allows our staff to broaden their experience through new and interesting therapy areas as well as cutting edge communications projects.
We offer careers, not jobs. We build roles around the strengths and aspirations of our staff and in doing so have become an employer of choice for over 500 employees worldwide.
As Scientific Director you will lead both the strategy and delivery of the full scope of medical communication products and services to meet the needs of our clients. You will have a strong background in medical writing and planning scientific communication programmes and have broader skills that will help us expand our multi-channel service offering. We are looking for someone to lead teams, uphold the quality of all deliverables, solve problems and build great relationships.
 
Applicants must have a life science degree (preferably a PhD) and the ideal applicant will have a multi therapy area background. Applicants will also need to possess excellent quality control, project management and briefing/reviewing skills along with an ability to inspire high performance - bringing out the very best in others.
 
In return we offer an excellent remuneration and benefits package and provide long-term choice and development that supports and encourages our editorial staff to progress their medical communications career. Our highly skilled teams reflect our continuing commitment to being an employer of choice as well as a provider of choice. This is demonstrated in our Investors in People award, which we have held for over thirteen years.

We view diversity as a business imperative that, when incorporated into all agency practices, becomes a competitive advantage, driving growth and organizational sustainability. As we position ourselves for a future of increased competition and disruption, we’re accelerating beyond merely acknowledging differences. Our philosophy is that consistent practices and deliberate actions that foster an inclusive culture, unleash the creative power of our talent and our work. We call this Conscious Inclusion.
