One of the leading providers of translational genomics research tools supporting personalised medicine development. The company is rapidly expanding and has a strong culture of developing talent and creating further opportunities for career growth.
The role is an office-based business development associate and you will be supporting the sales growth of the reagents, discovery service and diagnostic business units. The focus of the role is on building the existing sales of diagnostic reagents to laboratories and generating new leads and commercial opportunities.
Although office based, there will be the opportunity to travel up to 30% of the time to European and International destinations, this may include selected client visits and conferences.
A key requirement for the role is the ability to quickly understand highly technical concepts and explain them with the relevant benefits to a technical and often expert audience. As the telephone is your primary development tool, you will need to be confident and have the character to use this method to engage potential customers and create new and profitable commercial opportunities.
The requirements for the role are a degree in Biochemistry or Molecular Biology and experience in a sales environment with the confidence to sell a higher level service over the phone. Experience in the field of molecular diagnostics or a 2nd language would be an advantage.
