Havas Lynx is a global communications group – with offices in Manchester, London and New York. The majority of the work we do is within the healthcare and wellness sector and we are proud winners of prestigious awards for effectiveness and innovation. As part of our planned growth, we now have an exciting opportunity for a Junior Medical Writer to join our Manchester head office.
We are looking for someone with a Life Sciences background who wants to use their degree in a creative way. If you worry medical writing is unexciting, then working for an agency will be the perfect choice for you! Here at Lynx, we connect health care professionals and patients with the knowledge, tools and services they need to better achieve their goals. You can expect to get involved producing high quality medical education and communications materials for the pharmaceutical industry and other healthcare bodies. As part of your role you will research, write, edit and proof copy to the highest standard. By working alongside more Senior Writers and liaising with other internal teams you will develop your writing style and learn to create engaging content for the many different platforms used by Lynx. For instance you can expect to see your copy used on a variety of different platforms such as websites, Mobile Applications and also in print form. Here at Lynx you will be able to use your passion for all things scientific and work across a variety of different therapy areas, utilising the research skills you have acquired during your studies.
We’d hope that you’re enthusiastic about your career and ready for a busy and responsible role. You will become one of over 60 graduates who have joined Lynx to commence their careers. We place a great deal of focus on the development of our people, supporting you and providing ample opportunity to advance.
