  • Delivery of high-quality content for creative medical education and communication projects that is aligned with objectives and meets specification, budget and schedule requirements – always ensuring adherence to agency SOPs and processes, plus external regulatory and compliance guidelines
  • Develop in-depth knowledge of therapy area(s), markets, audiences, client strategy and key messages, and input into the development and implementation of strategic communication plans in close collaboration with client/account teams
  • Provide scientific counsel within Bedrock and across client accounts; liaise with clients, healthcare professionals, external service providers and other external bodies (includes participating at client & KOL meetings)
  • Maintain awareness of relevant media coverage and new developments in the pharma sector that affect clients’ and Bedrock’s business
