If this sounds like you, we’d love to meet you! This is a fast-paced and diverse medial writing role, reporting to the Editorial Manager, and encompassing product promotion, access/familiarisation programs, medical education and medical communications.

Vivacity Health, an IQVIA company, is a full-service, health and medical communications agency, where we combine science, creativity, and decades of experience to bring fresh thinking to our work. Our clients love how we just ‘get them’ and we’ve earned multiple industry awards for our work.

What Vivacity Health offers

Based in St Leonards, we’re a boutique agency nestled within a big corporation – offering job security without the ‘cog-in-the-machine’ feel. No two days are the same at Vivacity, and our close-knit team works collaboratively across projects to deliver high-quality content in a range of formats across various channels.

We recognise that life is more than just work. We are all for flexible working arrangements within our hybrid roles, and offer a comprehensive salary and benefits package and, most importantly, a down-to-earth company ethos that empowers your success. We are supported by health and wellness programs, as well as networking and professional development opportunities. 

Key responsibilities

  • Research and write to the highest standard (scientific and grammatical) medical education and communications materials including scientific material, meeting minutes, slide presentations, interactive on and offline modules, print items and digital media.

  • Participate in Vivacity Health strategy and planning meetings, brainstorming meetings for clients managed by project teams.

Key requirements/About you

As an experienced Medical Writer, we are looking for someone who strives for excellence, excels at writing and editing and loves to think independently and challenge content. We want to do work we are proud of and that really speaks to the audience, whomever that may be. Other key requirements include:

  • Life sciences degree (preferably BSc, PhD or BPharm).
  • At least 2 years agency writing. Editing and proofreading experience highly regarded. While our heritage is in medical education, we work on a wide range of projects and promotional writing experience is highly regarded.
