Scientific Project Assistant - Healthcare Communications Agency - Cheshire - £Competitive DoE

Opportunities like this don''t come along very often! Due to continued growth and internal promotions this well-respected agency is looking to take on 2 entry level candidates who are keen to forge a long-term career within medical communications. The ideal candidate would be a PhD or MSc graduate in the biological sciences, have an extremely high standard of written communication and have a keen interest in the pharmaceutical industry.

The Company

The client is a fast growing, lively, Cheshire based healthcare comms agency. This company has a fantastic training structure and endless progression opportunities so is a fantastic company for a hard-working graduate to get their foot in the door of such a competitive industry. This company offers:

  • The chance to join a sociable agency, with a friendly atmosphere which organises regular social events for its staff
  • A competitive salary and benefits, these include a flexible benefit package which can be tailored to your own needs.
  • The chance to work on a variety of accounts across multiple therapy areas and deliverables including med ed, publications and branding.
  • The opportunity to work alongside a very senior team who will invest in your professional development.

The Role

The client is looking to take on 2 entry level candidates for 2 different roles. These are:

  • Scientific Project Assistant: this hybrid role will involve a mix of providing project related support to the account teams and assisting the editorial team in the development of scientific content.
  • Scientific Data Assistant: this will again be a hybrid role which involves assisting both the client services and editorial teams. These roles are fantastic for entry level candidates as they will provide a 360-degree view of how a med comms agency operates.


To apply for any of these entry level med comms opportunities, our client is hoping for the following skills and experiences:

  • An MSc or BSc in the biological sciences.
  • All positions will require the completion of a written test- so an extremely high standard of written accuracy will be required.
  • A keen interest in both med comms and the wider pharma industry.
  • A driven individual who is confident meeting tight deadlines.
  • Personable and a strong communicator, with the capability to work both independently and as part of a successful team.

What should you do next?

Entry level medical communications roles don''t come up often and won''t be around for long, so get in touch for the chance to break into such a sought-after industry. To discuss further, please submit your current CV.

Unless otherwise stated, if applying for a job within the European Union, you must ensure that you are already authorised to work there.

Carrot Pharma Recruitment Ltd acts as an Employment Business and an Employment Agency on behalf of our client in recruitment for this role.
