    MedComms Networking - 07 June 2022


    Let's start today with a quick, but important, practical announcement for those who need it. I currently manage a number of online services across two companies, and we are making an important organisational change, which will generally simplify matters for everyone. NetworkPharma Ltd has now taken over the Burntsky Ltd activity. That will be irrelevant to most of you, but importantly, please do note that I am then taking the opportunity to close our specialist jobs board activity ( and in the Summer. We're not rushing, but after 10 years and considering the changing needs of the marketplace, we feel it is the right thing to do. We will fully close our jobs boards at the end of July and at that point all content and any contact data specifically related to those jobs boards will be deleted.

    Meanwhile nothing really changes for now, so why not check out the 500 specialist jobs that are currently listed. We all know MedComms is booming and there have never been more job opportunities. Sadly, though, I don't think our job advertising service can adequately provide the magic answers that are being sought by those of you who are looking to fill all those roles.

    Note that our other specialist services at,,, and are all now managed directly by myself at NetworkPharma Ltd and will continue to provide what I hope are valued services across the global community.

    Please don't hesitate to give me a shout at any time if you have any questions. Or any thoughts about what else we can do to provide additional support to the community.

    OK, that's the boring stuff out the way. What else?

    I am, of course, continuing to do what I can to champion job opportunities and career development across MedComms and the associated businesses. Our big new careers event at Heathrow, 19 September is developing nicely, and I'm confident it will be unlike anything we've seen before in our sector. Anyone is welcome to register and join us on the day. To get more involved in putting on the show, though, give me a shout at any time.

    Meanwhile, the next of our 2022 FirstMedCommsJob careers guides, Evidence generation and communication: a guide to getting started in HEOR/market access medical writing should be published in just a few days. Then, almost like it was planned, next week's #MedComms webinar will feature Pin Lu, Manca Povsic and Claire Woon from AMICULUM Access who will provide an introduction to market access and health economics. Please join us.

    First, though, we've a bigger than usual crowd gathering for tomorrow's #MedComms webinar, Writing for Patients: Who, What, Where, When, Why and How?. I'll be joined by Joanne Barwell, Hannah Birkett, Sue Harris and Rebecca Thurston from IQVIA. It should be of interest to everyone and everyone's welcome.

    There's lots more happening, online and onsite.

    P.S. what do you think of four-day working week experiments? Add your thoughts to my LinkedIn discussion here.
