Havas Lynx

Apply for this job

Contract Type:

Havas Lynx is a communications agency with 250 employees in Manchester, London and New York – supported by the Havas network; we deliver global marketing campaigns and as a group, we are proud to have been responsible for a series of industry firsts. To achieve such accolades, we produce communications for a wide range of clients and target markets – our work in the healthcare sector sees us communicate with Sales Representatives, Health Care Professionals as well as Patients and we also produce communications across the wellness and education sectors.
What’s key across all of our accounts however – is creativity.
At Lynx, creativity is at the heart of what we do – it’s threaded through all stages of a project’s development and is collaboratively driven by all involved. We are incredibly proud of our team and we’re pleased to be growing – we’re looking for a further Healthcare Copywriter to join us in Manchester.

The successful candidate will have a strong scientific background and will be eager to use this in a creative way, to make information more accessible for each of our target audiences. You’ll have previous medical writing experience gained from a creative agency, or you’ll be from a more traditional Medical Communications environment and will be seeking the chance to work on engaging, varied projects across a broad range of therapy areas. Here, every day is different and you will work on the generation of numerous deliverables – they’ll comprise global strategic campaigns and include anything from eDetails, patient case studies, through to websites, videos and animations, leave pieces, social media updates and patient blogs.

At Lynx, we work in multi-disciplinary teams of around 25 people, and you will take responsibility for working with less experienced colleagues, supporting their development, and ensuring excellence in the work that is delivered. You will work closely with talented Account Handlers and Creatives and you will be involved in projects from the outset, maintaining ownership of your work to project delivery. You will contribute to developing the brief, you’ll take a leading role in the concept and ideation stages and you will then work with other Production teams to oversee the project through development and delivery – working to ensure content is scientifically sound, memorable and appropriate to the audience. We’re looking to hear from Medical Writers who approach challenges a bit differently and who are driven to exceed the requirements of any given brief.
We think it’s important that Writers have direct client contact so in conjunction with the Accounts Team, you’ll develop your own client relationships and will be involved in meetings where you’ll present your work and take direct feedback. Therefore, we’re looking for someone who is confident, charismatic and skilled in presenting their ideas and the rationale behind these.
In return, you’ll find that Lynx offers a great environment – you’ll be offered plenty of mentorship and support in order for you to develop your writing style and abilities together with your scientific expertise. We place a great deal of focus on the development of our people, supporting you and providing ample opportunity to advance. We’re proud to also offer our exciting internal training programme to all employees here at Lynx – you can view more information via the #LXAcademy area of our website
You will also find we’re very proud of our heritage and culture – Havas Lynx is a sociable, friendly environment where personality is important. Take a look at our Facebook page for a closer look at what we get up to socially.
