Senior Copywriter

Toronto, Ontario

Klick Health is the world’s largest independent digital-first health agency, laser-focused on creating solutions that engage and educate healthcare providers about life-saving treatments. Klick helps inform and empower patients to manage their health and play a central role in their own care. Every solution hinges on Klick’s in-house expertise across the digital universe – strategy, creative, analytics, instructional design, user experience, relationship marketing, social and mobile. Established in 1997, Klick has teams in Chicago, New Jersey, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Toronto.
I’m Marc Genesee, an Associate Creative Director managing one of the teams that make up the Creative Department here at Klick Health. We're responsible for developing, writing and/or designing the engaging copy and compelling online experiences that wow our customers and resonate with their target audiences.
Our team needs another experienced individual who can work their creative flare around the regulations that go along with copywriting in the healthcare space. Writers are the source of emotion behind the advertisements we produce - responsible for crafting language that will resonate with our client’s customers – people seeking life-changing treatments. We take pride in our ability to use our creative talents to communicate and market to people in need. Your writing expertise can help make a difference in someone’s life.
In order to effectively get the message across while navigating a minefield of regulations we need someone with deep Pharma marketing experience and/or relevant education.  Post-secondary or undergraduate education in a healthcare related field would definitely help get our attention if you don’t have a decade of relevant work experience.
As a senior writer, you will be an integral part of our creative team developing content for a broad range of digital media to inform and influence patients and healthcare providers on often sensitive topics. You'll have a lot of support from the best leadership team in Canada and tons of opportunity to contribute to some of the most cutting-edge, forward thinking ideas in the digital realm. At Klick, we all wear a lot of hats and you'll be no exception.
