Why do we want you?

We want you because you are an experienced healthcare news reporter with a fantastic knowledge of the pharmaceutical industry and medical/scientific research and you want to work for a international business reporting on global pharmaceutical news.

A bit about us!

APM specialises in the provision of real time news on French and International healthcare markets. Conceived in 1989 to provide broader and deeper coverage of the French healthcare system, since which we have developed into a benchmark reference for all stakeholders in France, with the addition in 2005 of bureaus in London, Berlin, Brussels, Madrid and Milan. APM is part of the Wilmington plc portfolio of businesses.

Main Purpose of Role

As a reporter for APM Health Europe, your main role is to source and write and sub-edit stories and contribute to the general running of the service.

This is an exciting opportunity to join APM Health Europe which is a subscription-based news wire focusing on healthcare business news affecting the global pharmaceutical marketplace. It focuses not simply on the financials but also the regulatory, pricing, market access and cost effectiveness issues that impact all stakeholders.

If this is an area in which you have both experience and interest then why not submit an application and we'll be in touch.

Skills and Experience Required

We always support colleagues to develop their skills but to be successful in this job you really do need to already be able to tick most of these boxes...

We know it’s not a skill, but the successful candidate must have permission to work in the role’s location by the start of their employment.

You will also need;

  • Sufficient experience in reporting healthcare news which has included gaining a good level of knowledge of the pharmaceutical industry and medical/scientific research
  • Ability to work as part of a small team with colleagues in London and overseas reporters and translators
  • Excellent IT skills
  • Degree level in a relevant subject

You need to be the kind of person who…

  • Is passionate about news reporting, interviewing, researching diverse topics, writing for a highly-specialised readership
  • Loves to learn – both knowledge and skills
  • Is a creative question-asker and a solution-finder
  • Is able to work in a fast paced, fun and progressive environment
  • Enjoys a challenge – we work hard, and it can be a steep learning curve

If you are excited about the role and think you can do much of what we have described but aren’t sure if you are quite who we’re looking for… give it a try. Nothing ventured nothing gained!
