Account Executive Laura Gill shares how she is shaping her career in medcomms

We are delighted that Envision Pharma Group employees have provided strategic account management advice that has helped shape a new medical communications career guide for the industry, ‘The business of medical communications: A guide to getting started in account management’, published on 22 January, 2018.

This first edition of the careers guide aims to provide information for people considering a move to medcomms relating to the industry, career path, and required skills and qualifications. The publication contains contributions from several specialists in the field, as they describe insights on their day-to-day work along with personal career journeys and highlights. Among the Envision team members who contributed to the development of the career guide was Account Executive Laura Gill (pictured), who provided an extensive personal profile on her background, experience and role in the account management team.

Laura notes in the guide, “In the past 6 months, I have already worked on a range of medical meetings and commercial projects including the launch of a new e-learning platform. My day-to-day tasks include financial management, tracking projects, liaising with internal teams and developing relationships with clients. At Envision Pharma Group, alongside our key roles and responsibilities, it is hugely important to maintain a strong work life culture that balances fun and hard work; this is as important as the actual work you deliver.”

The guide – which features quotes from Envision Client Solutions team members on why they enjoy working in medcomms – was authored by Lindsey Heer, a former Account Manager at Envision, and can be downloaded from FirstMedCommsJob.com’s website here.
