    LUNCHTIME CAREERS EVENT - 8 MARCH 2012 - MANCHESTER

    Everyone was welcome at this, our second Manchester careers event, which we were delighted to be presenting in association with Vitae NW Hub. It was free to attend for everyone, though primarily intended for post-docs and PhD students from the biomedical sciences departments within Universities, to meet with a number of medical communications (MedComms) professionals for a highly engaging session which presents medical writing and account management in MedComms as attractive career options.

    We explained how areas of the UK such as Oxfordshire, London and Cheshire are home to numerous leading medical communications agencies that serve the global pharmaceutical industry... and they're crying out for good staff!

    These agencies are looking for individuals with:

  • a genuine enthusiasm for science and its application to the world of medicine
  • the ability to work independently within a small-team environment.

    MedComms can literally take you all over the world and provides attractive long-term career pathways.
