This role offers the chance for an experienced, motivated individual to join our dynamic team of detail-orientated writers and researchers to produce high quality deliverables that are aligned with Xcenda’s core mission and vision.

  • Undertaking targeted literature searches (including familiarity with MEDLINE and EMBASE) to identify and obtain relevant source materials to inform project work across a diverse range of disease areas
  • Serving as the main client point of contact across multiple projects simultaneously, with strong communication skills to foster good client relationships while balancing internal team workloads (including effective timeline and project scope management)    
  • Working collaboratively and flexibly within a team environment to effectively delegate work, provide (and also receive) constructive feedback, and coordinate input from other Xcenda subject matter experts as required to meet project expectations and adhere to internal processes
  • Preparing for and leading client meetings (primarily via teleconference) to kick-off projects, provide status updates, and discuss client comments and feedback
  • Taking responsibility for on-time and on-budget delivery of projects, while maintaining high quality standards
  • Providing support for new business development opportunities as required, including background research, proposal development, and budget costings, with guidance from senior leadership
