We sat down with Sarah to find out more about what a typical day is like for a Medical Writer here:
Between 7-7:30 am.
Either straight to the gym if it’s a gym day. Otherwise, it’s radio on, jump in the shower, and have breakfast.
I cycle to work. It’s about a 25-minute ride through Islington. I don’t miss using the tube at all, even in winter.
Usually between 9:30–9:45 am.
Get up again to make tea.
It really varies. I could be doing some writing work, reviewing artworked materials, attending briefing meetings or doing a literature search for projects I'm working on.
I love music, but my brain doesn't cope well with multitasking, so I don’t usually listen to music if I need to think. I might listen to some classical music if I'm feeling particularly grumpy. Or if I'm feeling adventurous, I’ll let Spotify decide. Living life on the edge!
I always try to go out. There’s a lot of nice spaces around our office.
I tend to buy lunch. Clerkenwell has a lot to offer! My favourite spots are Whitecross market and a tiny hidden Vietnamese café just around the corner from us.
Wonder what I’ll have for my afternoon snack.
Again, it can vary. But at 3 pm every day, the Creative team will briefly debate whose turn it is to make the afternoon team coffee.
Remembering to do my timesheets.
6 pm is pretty typical for me and probably for most folks at Blue Latitude. Very few people stay later than 6:30.
Run around in the park playing ultimate Frisbee or playing cheesy songs on the ukulele.
Just looking at my web history, I seem to visit the European Medicines Agency website fairly frequently.
Sarah has over five years of experience in medical communications and publishing, joining Blue Latitude Health in 2014. She graduated from Leeds University with a BSc(Hons) in Medical Sciences and went on to work with various agencies writing, editing, and formatting scientific content across numerous digital and print platforms.
