Medical Communications Jobs
Zenopa have a dedicated team of consultants who specialise in the recruitment for the Medical Communications industry. This includes roles with a full-service fully integrated agency offering the whole range of services to the specialist agencies focusing on one aspect of the communication for example the Adverting, PR or Medical Education of a product.
We also work with a number of in-house communications departments within large blue chip pharmaceutical companies with roles that include a range of functions within communications including Medical Education & PR.
Medical communications is a diverse, dynamic and challenging career. Open any daily newspaper or magazine, surf the news on-line, turn on the radio or TV and there are literally hundreds of health stories covered every day. Reports about the latest drugs developed to treat breast cancer or obesity, NICE denying patients access to treatments for Alzheimer's disease, government policy and service provision - very little is more topical or interesting than our health.
