Business Development Manager

My client, a rapidly expanding biotech start-up, is looking to appoint the company's first UK-based sales specialist. The successful candidate will work closely with the senior leadership team to grow their customer network, starting in South-East England.

Do you consider yourself as a motivated self-starter who enjoys being left to your own devices? Do you have the determination and drive to succeed in a target-driven environment? Do you have proven experience in a sales-based role within the life science sector?

In this role, your responsibilities will include:

  • Taking full ownership of sales activity for the company's products in South East England
  • Organising and attending networking events to promote company branding and products
  • Researching and developing a sound awareness of life science organisations in the area
  • Building and maintaining strong relationships with customers
  • Providing regular updates on progress to the senior leadership team

To be considered for the role, you will have the following:

  • Significant experience in a sales-based role where targets are met and exceeded regularly
  • An evidenced understanding of life science companies in South-East England
  • Strong technical background in any life science discipline

You will have strong experience within all the above areas and feel confident to sell the company's products in both a technical and professional manner. An MSc (or equivalent) or higher in a life science subject would be beneficial.

Ideal candidates will be comfortable with working independently and bring a positive, enthusiastic attitude as this position will require a resilient approach. My client is interested in hearing from individuals who have a drive to succeed and have a true passion for contributing to customer and marketing growth to continue the company's success.
