Aspire Scientific

Are you interested in gaining experience of medical writing within the Medical Communications (MedComms) industry? If so, why not consider applying to Aspirations?

Aspirations, real life experience in medical writing

Aspirations provides a unique opportunity for suitably qualified life scientists to gain paid, real-life experience of medical writing for a MedComms agency. Work is performed on a freelance, self-employed basis. Many previous participants have found our scheme to be incredibly useful, with several going on to gain employment within the MedComms industry. Some are now permanent members of the Aspire Scientific team. Please take a look at our discussion with FirstMedCommsJob for further details on the scheme.

If you wish to apply for Aspirations, please send your CV and, to showcase your writing skills, a 250-word summary of your current or recent research focus to: hannah.mace@aspire-scientific.com. Summaries should be aimed at non-specialists with a medical/scientific background. Please note that we are only able to work with UK-based individuals, although exact location within the UK is not important. We are particularly interested in working with people looking to join the MedComms industry within the next year or so.

Aspire Scientific welcomes applications to the Aspirations work experience scheme from people of all backgrounds who match our application criteria. Aspire Scientific will consider reasonable adjustments for candidates with disabilities, within the framework of the scheme, in which participants work on a freelance, self-employed basis. If you would like to discuss this further or make an adjustment request, please email hannah.mace@aspire-scientific.com. Places on the scheme will be allocated on merit.
