Do you find yourself correcting misspelled words on a menu? Or wincing when even your dearest loved ones verbally slip out a grammatical error or two? Here at FCB Health, we love people who can sniff out mistakes! We’re a healthcare advertising agency seeking a crackerjack Sr. Editor with a killer eye for details and a zest for healthcare. The second shift hours of 4 pm to midnight will appeal to night owl editors!


Being nimble is essential: a day-in-the-life of a Sr. Editor will involve a triple play of copyediting, proofreading and fact checking various advertising projects ranging from digital campaigns to traditional brochures. You could be editing in neuroscience one day, and oncology the next.


Keeping quality control in mind and sticking to FDA regulations are key. And of course, your AMA style guide must be within arm’s reach!


Team up with some of the best healthcare advertising professionals in our convivial environment. We’re based in the heart of Manhattan, just steps away from the major subway lines and a block away from Penn Station.
