Editorial Manager - Associate Director of Regulatory Writing

Macclesfield, Manchester, Oxford, Glasgow; possibility of part time and/or part home working

Complete Regulatory is part of McCann Health, who partners with global pharmaceutical and biotechnology clients to provide expertise in strategic consultancy, multi-channel medical communications and regulatory documentation.  Our vision is to bridge the clinical care gap by combining insight and scientific evidence, to improve healthcare outcomes for patients and to enhance the clinical and commercial success of our clients.

We provide class-leading writing support and consultancy services to the pharmaceutical industry. We produce a wide range of clinical documentation, including clinical study reports, protocols, clinical summaries, clinical overviews, briefing documents, regulatory responses and other supporting documents, across a variety of therapy areas.

We are looking for an experienced Regulatory Writer to join our team and help us to build on our continuing success. You will use your thorough knowledge of regulatory documentation and coaching and mentoring skills to support writers in producing high-quality work efficiently and in working effectively as part of a high-performing team.

Our clients value our services very highly and in this role you will also work as a trusted partner with various companies, to provide high-level leadership and support on a range of project types and therapy areas.  You will help to maintain our excellent client relationships, which will allow you to consult with the client and demonstrate your high-level strategic thinking, based on extensive past experience, to ensure effective medical writing for regulatory authorities.

We are looking to recruit enthusiastic individuals with clever and curious minds. Applicants should be life-science graduates, ideally with a PhD or other research experience, although this is not mandatory.  You will need to have at least 5 years' experience and demonstrate relevant experience within the pharmaceutical industry and/or a medical writing agency. The Regulatory team headquarters are based in Macclesfield, but we are also looking to grow hubs in our Manchester, Oxford and Glasgow offices.

As the successful candidate, you will be a highly valued member of the Regulatory Writing team and will have the opportunity to advance your skills which will include providing effective line management and driving high performance standards across the business.  We take great pride in our strong team ethic and our commitment to quality and, therefore, these are the personal attributes we look for in anyone joining the Complete Regulatory team.

This position will benefit anyone looking to build on their experience in regulatory writing, while working within a highly specialised, supportive and reputable team.  In addition, you will become part of a larger organisation, which offers a range of world-class services and a flexible organisational structure.

We offer you a fresh challenge in your career, within a supportive working environment. As well as a competitive remuneration and benefits package, we provide long-term career choice and development that supports and encourages our staff to progress and maximise their potential. Ultimately, whoever you are, whatever difference you can make to our business, our aim is to provide you with an environment that is thriving and challenging, flexible and inclusive, with a culture where opportunities and success abound.
