Job details
ICON plc is a world-leading healthcare intelligence and clinical research organisation. From molecule to medicine, we advance clinical research providing outsourced services to pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical device and government and public health organisations.
With our patients at the centre of all that we do, we help to accelerate the development of drugs and devices that save lives and improve quality of life.
Our people are our greatest strength, are at the core of our culture, and the driving force behind our success. ICON people have a mission to succeed and a passion that ensures what we do, we do well.
Who are you?
You are a writer, editor, and project manager with an interest in science and the skills to convey complex concepts in a straight-forward way. You will work at the intersection of clinical trial science, business communication, and project management to:
  • Collaborate with teams of therapeutic and operational experts and executives
  • Craft clear, compelling, and client-ready proposals
  • Manage fast-paced deadlines
You understand the need to communicate accurately with prospective and existing clients. You are a strategic thinker adept at gathering and translating technical and scientific information into narrative documents in response to Requests for Proposals (RFPs). Your editing skills allow you to transform text into clear prose, and you can effectively and efficiently self-edit documents of varying lengths.
You are a hard worker who can efficiently balance multiple ongoing projects and thrives in a fast-paced environment. Your attention to detail has won you praise, and you are regularly commended for meeting and beating deadlines. You look to make improvements–not accepting the status quo, but actively identifying ways to facilitate positive change. You confidently liaise with experts, and you proactively facilitate internal communications.
In this next step on your journey, you want to put your competitive, driven nature to work in an environment where you can sharpen your business acumen and learn the CRO industry from the inside out. You want to work for a company and team that supports your professional growth and a work/life balance letting you pursue your career passion and still be you. Most of all, you want to do it in a place where you are part of a team whose members are as zealous about their work as you are, a place where you can make a difference.
What will you do?
As a Proposal Writer, you are a key member of the Proposals team. You work with therapeutic and operational experts to develop the core strategy for trial success across all clinical phases of drug development. You convey this strategy in concise and compelling narrative text, refined by team review. Your writing and project management skills result in a quality proposal outlining a well-written and clear strategy. Your documents highlight ICON as the clear choice. You are part of a supportive team of writers who share knowledge and expertise to ensure quality, consistency, and professional growth.
What do you need?
  • Undergraduate degree or international equivalent.
    • Degree in English, communications, or science preferred
  • 2-3 years of professional writing experience required; 3-5 years of professional writing experience preferred
    • Demonstrated writing skills, preferably including composition of strategies for project completion
    • Applied analytical skills and strong organizational abilities
    • Strong editing skills, both of others’ text and your own
    • Dedication to quality and reliability in all work tasks
    • Ability to manage relationships with internal customers
    • Must be able to work under deadline pressure while maintaining accuracy, quality, and detail
    • Knowledge of CRO/pharmaceutical industry or science background preferred
    • Ability to coordinate multiple projects
  • Experience using computerized information systems and standard application software (ie, Windows, MS Office)
    • Proficiency in a word processing environment required
    • High level of proficiency and comfort with Word required
