Right Source Marketing is looking for a talented writer/editor to add to our growing content team. This position will be focused exclusively on healthcare writing and editing for one of our largest clients, a national healthcare provider.

The successful candidate must be able to shift gears easily between writing styles and deliverables. Your assignments will encompass a broad range including, but not limited to:

You will create content in various formats including blog posts, articles, eBooks, videos, reports, case studies, testimonials, infographics, speeches, emails and web content.

Your proven experience with healthcare content — both journalistic formats and marketing content — will afford you the opportunity to interact with and interview our client’s most respected physicians and create content, both reported and ghostwritten, that reaches thousands of readers.

Our writer/editor will:

  • Be a generator of new ideas and a creative storyteller
  • Be comfortable and polished as an interviewer, with the ability to draw stories and anecdotes out of the interview subject
