The Academy

Every job is a training ground for your next job.

Wordbird is committed to finding and training a new generation of
healthcare copywriters. Our training Academy recruits the best life
science graduates and provides a comprehensive training opportunity.

Training is a mix of external courses and internal tasks that equip
writers with practical and creative skills. All writers attend a PMCPA
Code of Practice Seminar (we don’t just ask them to read the booklet).
Some of the other topics covered include:

  • Creative thinking
  • Writing in Plain English
  • Putting yourself in your audiences’ shoes
  • The role of design in communication
  • Visual writing

But there is so much more too. Learning never stops – and when it does, it’s time to get that next job. We are looking forward to welcoming the 2015 Academy cohort, so if you would like to be considered for a future position please contact us, if you have:

  • A top-notch life science degree
  • Creative flair
  • Fabulous attention to detail
  • Plenty of old-fashioned gumption

content is king bird

Content is king

  • We write to implement strategy so that something happens
  • We never write without first understanding
  • We always put ourselves in our audiences’ shoes
  • We deploy our creativity sensibly. No self-indulgence allowed
  • We try hard to make your data meaningful for each audience
  • We are not afraid to challenge or ask questions (although we try not to be too annoying)
  • Codes and regs are always an intrinsic part of our writing process
  • We are not put off by ‘the approval process’, however challenging it may become
  • References are correct from the start. Always marked-up, checked, double-checked
    and updated throughout a project. There’s nothing more frustrating than sloppy referencing

checklist. We all have one next to our desks.

Ask your writer


  • Have they had direct PMCPA/PAGB training?
  • Do they have a life science degree (or equivalent)?
  • Do they write from references, marking up from draft one?
  • What’s their technique for getting up the learning curve
    swiftly on your brand?
  • What writing training have they had and what is their ongoing CPD?
  • What techniques or tools do they use to ensure readability?
  • Can you speak to them directly – or do you need to go via a project manager
    or account handler?
  • Have they been on a representative field visit recently?

Our writers are not the ‘back office’. They are the beating heart and soul of what we do.
They are on the front line, ready to take responsibility and work with you to make
your story simple, but brilliant.

Battersea Studios 80-82 Silverthorne Road, London, SW8 3HE

If you are visiting by public transport we are near two National Rail stations: Queenstown Road and Battersea Park.

Battersea Park station: Leave the station and cross the road at the lights opposite the exit. At the other side follow the road under the bridge. Keep walking until you reach the corner shop and turn left onto Queenstown Road. Follow the winding road past
Queenstown Road station until you reach Silverthorne Road by the Victoria pub. Turn left and keep walking until you reach the second road on the left and see the Battersea Studios sign. The lovely people at reception will let us know you are here.

Eventually, we’ll be on the London Underground map, but until our Northern Line spur is built, you’ll need to travel above ground. If you are coming by car and need to park please let us know.
