Analyst/Medical Writer



Business Type: Pharmaceutical Company, Medical Communications Agency
Job Type: Medical Writing and Editorial
Job Level: Experienced (non manager)
Position: Full Time
Salary: £33,000 per annum
Location: Cambridgeshire

Opportunities for Analysts and Medical Writers

Analysts and Medical Writers work on projects involving the detailed analysis of data from clinical trials and the assimilation and creative presentation of this analysis in different formats including posters, slide sets, value dossiers, reports and peer-reviewed publications. These deliverables are used directly by our clients in communication with external stakeholders instrumental to the successful uptake of novel therapies. The work is structured on a project-by-project basis and you will usually be working on several projects in different disease areas at any one time.

You will work in project teams alongside experienced colleagues, who provide one-to-one training in the technical aspects of the role, including project management and effective client communication. Delivering project work requires close collaboration with clients, and following a successful induction period you will increasingly participate in teleconferences and face-to-face meetings with external stakeholders.

Costello Medical is structured into divisional teams focusing on distinct medical communications and health economics services or serving a specific sector within the healthcare industry. All Analysts and Medical Writers can work cross-divisionally to develop a broad understanding of the company’s services and clients, but if you have an interest in joining a specialised division you will be encouraged to specify this in your application form.


What is the Difference Between an Analyst and a Medical Writer?

Analysts and Medical Writers have the same level of responsibility. Medical Writers are largely based in the Publications division, where they focus on the development of published manuscripts, abstracts and posters, and Analysts are largely based in our other divisions, where they specialise in document types and formats such as educational materials, slide sets, value dossiers, reimbursement submissions and literature review reports. The core and uniting element of our work is medical data communication and there is overlap between the roles, which is why cross-divisional working is so encouraged.
