Senior Editor

Updated: September 22, 2020
Location: New York, NY, United States
Job ID: 127373

Overview

Meticulous doesn't begin to describe your dedication to accuracy.

You are diligent and punctilious, with an absolute understanding of the tone and structure of writing. You can turn a sprawling explanation into one clear and concise message without affecting the underlying meaning. You are laser-focused on grammar and phrasing, and more reliable than spell check. Do you feel like this paragraph could be improved? This Senior Editor role with GSW may be just place for you.

The Senior Editor will be expected to take the lead on their own brand and will report to an editorial manager. Responsibilities include proofreading for grammar, spelling, and punctuation; editing for client and AMA style; verifying accuracy of information, data, and claims; communicating appropriately and effectively with other departments; and demonstrating problem-solving ability. This role is ideal for someone that already has pharma advertising experience and has owned their own brand. We are looking for self-starters that are highly motivated, organized, and enjoy collaborating with a team.

GSW is a full-service healthcare communications agency that goes beyond advertising to create personalized brand experiences. We develop strategic marketing solutions for pharmaceutical, biotech and health-and-wellness clients around the world. We create experiences that involve, inspire, educate and activate people through ongoing brand journeys.

  • Proficiency in AMA style and FDA guidance
  • Be an editorial brand lead and work with other departments to reach common goals
  • Assist editorial staff in the day-to-day operations

Job Requirements

  • 3 to 5 years of pharmaceutical advertising experience within editorial
  • Experience editing in Adobe Acrobat a plus
  • Ability work in a fast-paced environment and multitask
  • Detail oriented and organized
  • Strong writing skills
  • Ability to work independently and in a group setting
  • Ability to prioritize and manage multiple projects

GSW turns against the premise of doing the “same old.” Our culture is focused on collaborative, meaningful advertising and day-to-day interpersonal interaction. We value the diverse backgrounds of our team members, and everyone has the opportunity to provide input and be heard. GSW is comprised of creative, motivated individuals who are all here for a reason. We welcome those who strive to work above and beyond their role, who voice their opinion and who are engaged in all aspects of the agency.

At GSW, “speak people” is part of our every day. Our employees are inventing ways to go further, faster, thus giving purpose to liberating ideas within healthcare advertising.

GSW is part of Syneos Health Communications, a purpose-built collective of agencies focused on supporting health and biopharmaceutical innovators. We work in scalable, collaborative teams that partner across disciplines and geographies to deliver integrated communications strategies that accelerate brand performance. In today’s fast-changing and complex environment, success lies in making connections: between science, emotion, and technology; between data, design and human insight. We’re able to make those connections because our medical communications, digital, advertising, public relations, data science, research and market access specialists work closely with each other and with healthcare experts, including physicians, pharmacists and advocates. Together, we are the connected healthcare partner tapping rich insights to drive innovation, change behavior and pioneer a new era of accountable marketing.
