Warman O’Brien has assisted in sourcing expert professionals for Medical Affairs jobs across the globe

Specialists in Recruiting Medical Affairs Talent

Medical affairs jobs are crucial within the pharmaceutical, biotech and CRO landscape, ensuring that professionals within the healthcare field are provided with accurate and up-to-date information on therapeutic products. They provide a key link between industry bodies, governmental organisations and the public consumer.

At Warman O’Brien, we’re specialists in sourcing Medical Science Liaison professionals across all levels of seniority and offer a contingent and retained service to allow our clients to address their urgent and long-term talent needs.

With the increasing regulatory oversight of the clinical trials process leading to an emphasis on pharmacovigilance, experts in scientific communication and patient advocacy are required to develop an in-depth understanding of novel drugs and maintain relationships with key opinion leaders, support medical education and training and improve access to healthcare across the industry.

Medical Affairs Jobs are Crucial to Product Commercialisation

Our consultants have a track record of placing ambitious MSLs with market-leading pharmaceutical and biotech organisations, and our consultants are committed to championing the success of the life science sector through their focus on keeping up to date with the latest legislation, best practices and research in the industry. 

The increasing volume of real-world data and the rapid digitisation of the industry means that medical affairs professionals are increasingly building technical skills which can be leveraged to empower the commercialisation of new drugs and devices.

Many biotech and pharmaceutical organisations will encounter pain points as they scale their operations from research and development to product launch. Our candidates are experts in commercial strategy, helping to ensure that patients across the world benefit from the vital therapeutics you produce.

Medical Science Liaison (MSL)

Medical Science Liaisons bring expertise in scientific communication to your business. As a contact between pharmaceutical companies and key practitioners, MSLs go into the field to interact with the healthcare professionals that will use their products daily.

MISs work collaboratively to review materials such as FAQs and product monographs, holding advanced degrees in life sciences or healthcare fields, alongside strong communication and technical writing skills.
