Are you a medical writer with experience in cost proposals for medical writing activities looking for a role that offers all the fun of medical writing without the long hours, need for overtime, and project stress? Yes, this mythical position really exists…

We are seeking someone to prepare cost proposals for our medical writing projects. These are used to bid for work on new projects and ultimately serve as work orders for the projects. To do this job, it is essential to understand the work involved in writing regulatory documents so you can accurately capture the scope of work, estimate the time needed for budgets, and generally provide meaningful input on the offer provided to clients.

As a Senior Cost Proposal Writer, you will:

  • Prepare and revise cost proposals as part of the proposal-writing team, working independently on your assigned cost proposals
  • Review client-provided information to understand the scope of the request and succinctly describe this in a proposal, using our well-developed cost proposal templates
  • Proactively communicate with clients and writers to get the information understand the scope and make decisions in a timely manner
  • Collaborate with the assigned writing team to address their feedback and optimize cost proposals
  • Review and respond to client feedback, providing revised cost proposals that both meet the client’s needs and empower our medical writers to perform at their best

In addition to having medical writing experience, applicants must also have:

  • A Bachelor’s degree in a science/pharmacy discipline (PhD not necessary)
  • Some experience handling cost proposals (e.g. in a CRO environment)
  • Fluent written and spoken English skills and be a highly articulate communicator who is able to engage confidently and sensitively with all kinds of people
  • An appreciation for a well-written document, an eye for detail, and the resourcefulness to proactively identify and fill information gaps

Trilogy offers the following:

  • Competitive base salary (dependent on experience level, and the company’s compensation practices)
  • Annual bonus based on company and individual performance.
  • A generous allowance of paid time off (vacation, holiday, birthday, illness).
  • Additional country-specific benefits
  • Free weekly yoga sessions
  • Other fun and exciting events to encourage team bonding and development.

At Trilogy you will be part of a company that values its employees and nurtures a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Remuneration will be relative to your experience, plus all standard benefits and several Trilogy-specific benefits.
