Full job description

It’s not every day we have a chance to make the world a healthier place—but here, it’s our way of life. Idealistic? Maybe. Deeply pragmatic? Always. Real Chemistry is a global health innovation company that has carved out its space at the intersection between healthcare, marketing and communications, tech, and the people at the heart of it all. It’s with a great sense of purpose that we work together with brave health and wellness companies to create and inspire healthier, happier, and longer lives. It’s our passion. And if you’re still reading, we’re guessing it might be yours too. We are looking to add to our alchemic mix of more than 2,000 talented professionals. At Real Chemistry, we don’t just wish the world was healthier. We leverage tech, data and creativity to make it so. You in?
Real Chemistry is looking for a Medical Strategist to join our growing team!
Do you revel in translating complex science into an emotive and tangible narrative – bringing the ‘so what’ to diverse audiences? Are you naturally curious and enjoy outside of the box thinking and co-creation? If this sounds like you and you’re interested to explore your next career move into Strategic Medical Communications then could be the role for you..
This is an exciting opportunity to join a growing team and help build the Real Chemistry International strategic medical capabilities. As a member of our Medical Strategy Team you will blend your scientific expertise with strategic know-how and commercial savviness.
You understand the clinical treatment landscape and anticipated evolution and use core consultancy skills to support clients with their decision-making at key milestones throughout the product lifecycle; from helping our clients define where their brands can have the greatest impact for patients through to shaping and executing an innovative strategy that delivers on their vision.
You are able to look beyond complex scientific data, dissect perspectives, beliefs and behaviours and understand the challenges to elucidate insights, ideate options and design innovative solutions that address the strategic direction of our clients’ brand and realise the value creation for diverse stakeholders. You have a flair for translating the science into an emotive, credible and patient centric narrative that resonates with the diverse motives and interests of different stakeholders.
We are looking for someone who is able to encompass both the rationale and emotional mindset, drive curiosity and is not afraid to think beyond the outside of the box – beyond the lines on the graph to bring the ‘so what’ to the science. This person will act as a strategic partner for the senior Real Chemistry team and our clients ensuring a clear ‘red thread’ running through all initiatives and elevating back up to the clients’ strategy and goals.
We proud to work with our clients as partners rather than service providers, across the product lifecycle, including strategic and tactical planning of inline and pipeline assets, pivotal data-readouts, evidence generation plans, medical education and training, workshop development and facilitation and thought leadership to name a few initiatives.
Our clients include Medical Affairs, Commercial and Clinical Development across Global, Regional and UK teams. The main therapy areas we are working across currently include oncology, dermatology, rare diseases, respiratory medicine and CNS disorders, and regular new business wins will almost certainly provide an opportunity to work in other areas.
What you’ll do:
  • Proactively drive innovation and creativity in Medical Education by bringing new perspectives that inspire creative and critical thinking and new ideas.
  • Understanding and distil the scope, client interests and desired output to set the direction on how a project is shaped and delivered scientifically to elevate the narrative above the competition and tailored to diverse audiences.
  • Undertake research into medicines, therapeutic landscape, and competitive environment, providing input on how a brand’s scientific evidence-base can shape the communication and strategic direction.
  • Work closely with Strategy Director and Senior Writing/Accounts team to ensure critical thinking, direction is informed by insights and alignment with the clients’ strategy.
  • Provide guidance to Medical Writers, Account and Creative teams on scientific understanding, accuracy and compliance on relevant brands and harmonisation of scientific substance and customer insight, including review and provision of feedback on creative content
    • Through identification of scientific insights, works with the Medical Writer to help develop and guide strategic direction and scientific content/messaging on brands
    • Partner with account teams to plot the course of the brand and client relationship, in particular live meetings and key milestones
  • In collaboration with the Senior Team, proactively cascade product and disease area information to relevant clients and team members throughout the year
  • Support clients in strategic and tactical planning process to align with an evolving landscape disrupted by technology
  • Cultivate strong client relationships, acting as the strategic partner and identify opportunities for exponential growth by understanding their interests and those of their cross-functional stakeholders
  • Understand and contribute to new project scoping, approach/project design, timelines & scheduling for delivery
  • Act as the scientific expert to support new business by performing research, in partnership with Analytics, planning and crafting of the pitch narrative to drive growth for the agency
This position is a perfect fit for you if:
  • Our Company values – Best Together, Impact-Obsessed, Excellence Expected, Evolve Always and Accountability with an “I” – really speak to you.
  • You are adaptable, resilient, and OK with adjusting your scope, responsibilities, and focus as we grow. When things change, so do we. We’re always evolving.
  • You are proactive, driven, and resourceful with strong prioritization skills and a desire to dive into the data.
  • You are highly organized self-starter, able to work independently and under tight deadlines.
What you should have:
  • Proven history of working on strategic projects for Global clients in a top tier consulting firm or Medical Education/Communications agency, either as a Strategist or an experienced Senior Medical Writer looking for their next move
  • An advanced degree (PharmD, PhD, MSc, RN, MD) in a scientific/medical discipline is required
  • Proactively listen to what is said and, more importantly, unsaid to identify and understand the real underlying challenge
  • High client EQ – understanding your client’s interests and how to adapt your approach to the style of the client
  • Storytelling and understanding the art of presentation

  • Competent in searching for scientific papers and conducting desk research using, for example, online scientific publishing tools (e.g. PubMed)
  • Proficient in Word, Excel and PowerPoint
  • Delivery of small to medium projects independently with minimal guidance
  • Strong attention to detail and a proven communicator (verbal and written)
  • Understanding of the complete health ecosystem that impact a brand such as market access, generic competition, corporate reputation and sales and/or medical field force activities
  • 4+ years of healthcare experience through launching biopharmaceutical brands
Working with HART: Since the pandemic, we have adapted to how our people told us they want to work. We have offices in cities with many employees and clients – New York, Chicago, Austin, Washington D.C., San Francisco, and London – that serve as hubs where and when they need us, and we encourage employees who live less than a 45-minute commute of a Real Chemistry office to go in at least two days per week. Outside of these offices, we have regions, where people work remotely but come together quarterly for collaboration, culture and learning opportunities. We call this our Hybrid and Regional Teams approach. Real Chemistry believes we are best together – and our workplace strategy fosters connection and collaboration in person – but also supports flexibility for our people.
Real Chemistry offers a comprehensive benefit program and perks, including a primary office location near in Moorgate, 25 days holiday, private medical insurance, dental insurance, pension contributions and a five-week sabbatical program. Other perks include health and wellness reimbursements, happy hours, and free healthy snacks to keep you running all day long. Learn more about our great benefits and perks at:
