Developing a new drug can take up to 15 years and cost in excess of $1 billion. Regulatory writers are specialist medical writers, whose role it is to prepare the formal and scientific documents that pharmaceutical companies need during the development of a drug. Such documents are required by drug licensing authorities, such as the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Hence, regulatory writers play an important role in helping to get new drugs to the market and in improving patient care.

  • Preparing medical writing documentation to a high standard with supervision from a more experienced writer
  • Participating in client project teams and meetings as appropriate
  • Liaising with client personnel and external contacts to ensure that documentation is produced to a high standard and in accordance with agreed timelines
  • Performance of quality control review of medical writing documentation to a high standard
  • Ensuring medical writing activities comply with regulatory guidelines and company/client standard operating procedures.

Ideal candidates will have:
  • PhD in Life Sciences or similar
  • Excellent command of spoken and written English
  • Meticulous attention to detail
  • Strong interpersonal skills, and an ability to interact confidently with colleagues, clients, and external experts
  • Ability to work independently and as part of a team
