Promotional Group Copy Lead - Pharma

IQVIA is looking for a Promotional Group Copy Lead -- Pharma to join the Medical and Patient Communications (MPC) division.

The ideal candidate will have a minimum of 5 years copywriting experience with health care, pharmaceutical, or device communications in an agency environment. You should be able to combine scientific knowledge, strategic insight, promotional expertise, and client-facing leadership to deliver award-worthy work.
