Editorial Secretary

The role

We have an excellent opportunity for a person eager to start a career in Medical Communications as an Editorial Secretary to work with a growing editing team supporting a great team of Medical Writers and Account Managers. The successful candidate will be responsible for assisting the editorial team with project administration, proofreading, PowerPoint slide styling, content editing, liaison with authors and much more – this is a very varied role. The position offers great opportunity for personal development and progression within the company.


To be considered for the Editorial Secretary position, you must be enthusiastic and motivated about the English language, both written and spoken, have a keen eye for detail and ideally have some proofreading experience gained in an office environment. Excellent communications skills, both written and verbal, are essential. Experience with Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel would be beneficial as would some qualifications in life sciences, but this is not essential.
