Cuttsy+Cuttsy

Senior Medical Writer

Are you an experienced senior medical writer looking for a new challenge?

If so, we want to hear from you

Words are your thing. 

You can communicate complex scientific ideas in a concise manner and tailor communications perfectly for their audience.

In that case, we can’t wait to hear from you.


Join us in our mission and make a positive difference in people’s lives. 

At Cuttsy+Cuttsy we are committed to supporting patients and healthcare professionals. Everyday our communications are making impact. 

As an experienced medical writer, you will develop engaging copy with strategic impact for a range of medical communications materials, platforms and audiences. Projects will be varied - one day you may be creating patient materials to support them with their chronic disease, the next, you may be writing communications to help doctors make a treatment decision based on scientific evidence. 

The variety will require you to adapt your writing style and approach depending on the project objectives. As a Senior Medical Writer, you will be experienced in placing yourself in the shoes of your audience, and this could not be more important in the role here at Cuttsy+Cuttsy.

The role will be supported by the Content Director; however, you will find yourself working alongside team members in Strategy, Design and Account Management.

  • Use content review management platforms such as Veeva Vault with competence
  • Travel to and attend client presentations and projects where necessary (occasionally international travel may be required)
  • Mentor junior writers and take an interest in their personal development


Skill Base:

  • Degree level or higher in a biomedical science
  • A minimum of 4 years’ medical writing experience
  • Highly motivated to create medical writing which makes a positive difference
  • Understanding of product promotion from a commercial perspective
