We are looking for a full-time experienced Creative Medical writer to join our communications and copywriting collective. Thinking about a new role? Want to do high-quality work and make a difference? Fancy joining a vibrant team who do things a bit differently? Then RubyDuke might just be where your tribe has been hanging out!
What do we do at RubyDuke? We are all about solving problems, telling stories and doing good. We work directly with communication agencies to bring a fresh perspective to the communication problems that their clients are experiencing, and come up with innovative ways of solving them. We are writers, so everything we do is wrapped up in communication. We craft compelling stories to give those communications the best chance of succeeding in their purpose. And we want to create positive change wherever and however we can.
Which is why at RubyDuke, everyone gets involved in ‘Doing Good’ projects. We want to do our best to improve the world around us and to give back in any way we can. We are supporting some fantastic charities to be able to tell their story in their way, and to secure funding for their next big project. We also run our office (it’s in leafy Lane End, Buckinghamshire in a converted Church) as ethically as we can. We have twinned our toilet and our taps to support access to sanitary water across the world and we keep our basics and cleaning products stocked up via our local zero-waste shop.
By joining our RubyDuke team, you will become part of this innovating copywriting collective who are doing things differently. We are agile so move quickly, we are energetic so are always on the ball and we are a team so we do these things together.
Have we piqued your interest? We hope so. If we have, this is what we are looking for in a new team member:
The ability to develop high-quality content across a range of marketing and brand communications such as detail aids, leave pieces, user guides, and websites. Whilst ensuring that the copy is scientifically accurate and clear, this role also requires a dose of creative flair.
Be flexible and versatile in your approach to projects. You may be writing for patients and caregivers, HCPs, and nurses or for internal teams and will need to adapt the style and tone to match the target audience.
When developing content, you will be expected to provide creative and innovative ideas on how to best convey the messages and data and will be expected to convey this to the client design team for execution.
A keen eye as you will also need to be a proficient proof-reader and editor.
Fully competent and comfortable with the ABPI code of practice, and confident in developing content that is scientifically accurate and compliant. As well as developing content, you will need to be familiar and experienced in developing ref packs.
Proficient with Promomats including upload, linking and annotating.
The desire to work as part of a team. We are a close-knit bunch, and are seeking someone to join the team who will foster our team spirit and help us to develop as a group.
In terms of salary, this is dependent on experience (both in and out of medical communications), qualifications, and other skills, meaning that the salary banding is quite broad for this role. The salary on offer is £40K - £70K.
In addition, there is no expectation of overtime/long hours including flexible working and the ability to work from home, pension, Christmas shutdown (on top of annual leave allowance), regular team fun days (it's so much more than team building!), a chance to work on a Doing Good Project for at least 1 day a month (often more!), group coaching and access to a monthly subscription service of your choosing.
The months and years to come are guaranteed to be exciting ones for us. The voyage starts now – want in?
If so, drop us a line with an up to date copy of your CV and a few lines on why you would like to be part of Team RubyDuke. Email works best – please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We can’t wait to hear from you.
