We are hiring a Freelance Medical Copywriter

Join our team to help our products communicate with patients and clinicians.

Ctrl Group builds products that make the experience of participating in medical research simple and transparent. When more people are included in research and richer data can be gathered, then it becomes possible to improve the way healthcare works for everyone.

We are looking for a freelance Medical Copywriter to join our team of designers, developers and researchers in London, UK. At the moment we are focused on developing a chat-based system for guiding people through the (often bewildering) experience of taking part in medical research. We are also designing new ways to deliver patient education. Lastly we are doing some really exciting and explorative work in natural language processing and voice-based user interface.

Our users are the people who are generous enough to offer their time and energy to take part in medical research, often when they are not feeling particularly well. An important challenge we face is to create products that communicate with patients and clinicians in a natural, informative and engaging way.

We are looking for someone who:

  • Has experience creating engaging content that can meet the needs of patients and clinicians.
  • Can draw on the expertise found in evidenced-based research and translate it into patient-facing communication.
  • Has experience writing about mental and behavioural health in particular.
  • Has an interest in writing for a variety of platforms such as mobile apps, the web and voice.
  • Has an interest in writing different types of content such as prose, conversation and product messaging.
  • Enjoys the challenge of combining good writing and good science.
  • Has a strong interest in the role of technology to improve medical research and healthcare.
  • Enjoys working in small mixed teams, in close collaboration with engineers, designers, illustrators researchers and medical scientists.

While we are hiring a freelancer in the first instance, we would happy to discuss the potential to join our team over the longer term.
