We have made substantial progress towards achieving that goal and now have teams based across multiple locations in New Zealand, China, Hong Kong, Singapore, UAE, Switzerland, UK and USA. We offer highly specialist services to global pharmaceutical and biotechnology clients, including medical communications, healthcare learning, clinical and commercial consultancy, support for market access, rare diseases and genomic medicine communications, as well as digital engagement and advocacy.

As a result of this success, AMICULUM is looking for an experienced medical writer with specialist publications experience to join our growing team. Working across a range of therapy areas and accounts, you will deliver high-quality publications and, in collaboration with our in-house Design and Digital teams, develop innovative enhanced content for our global pharmaceutical clients.

  • Generating captivating content that is aligned with client objectives
  • Building positive relationships with leading clinicians around the world
  • Providing scientific insight to clients and internal account teams
  • Contributing to creative and innovative ideas for information/data sharing within the virtual publications landscape
  • Working effectively with colleagues to ensure projects are delivered to the highest standards, within agreed timelines and budgets

About you

As an experienced medical publications writer with several years’ experience, you will have a good understanding of the pharmaceutical industry and the support that our clients require.

You will reflect the key attributes we look for in all colleagues, which are:
