Senior Sales Manager | Western Europe | to £60K (£100K OTE)

Are you looking for a role with more influence and progression potential?


Do you have experience selling chemistry instrumentation into the pharmaceutical market?


If you are looking for a European role managing direct sales and distribution with a good chance of progression this could be a great opportunity for you!


This chemistry instrument manufacturer is looking for a European sales manager to manage distribution and also sell directly to some European customers. With success this role will become a global sales manager position in a couple of years.


This company has little in the way of competition with well-known products and newly developed instruments recently launched. Its a good time to join as their sales are on their way up (doubled last year and on track to double in 2014) and there is very little market saturation!

Description of Role


This multiple Queen’s Award winning company is headquartered in the UK, from where it designs, manufactures and sells scientific instruments for the measurement of powder properties. Its products are recognised globally as the leaders in their field and are utilised by many multinational customers around the world in sectors as diverse as pharmaceutical, toner, ceramics, food and chemical.


The primary responsibility of this role is to lead the mechanical / systems design activities in the company, working alongside a small team of software and electronics engineers. The company is about to embark on the design of its next generation product and so you will have the opportunity to make a significant contribution to a high profile technology that is expected to be class leading for many years.


As the lead mechanical engineer you will be responsible for all mechanical / electromechanical design activities, encompassing drives, guide-ways, structures, force and position transducers, and many other interesting aspects associated with the design of a sophisticated analytical instrument.


Principal Duties:


  • Develop mechanical design concepts and drawings for the company’s next generation of powder characterisation instruments.

  • Manage design activities at each stage, through detailing, prototyping and commercial introduction.

  • Work alongside colleagues in electronics, control systems and software engineering, as well as those in the lab for testing ideas and new products.

  • Manage the design of hardware through professional documentation and project meetings, in-line with the company’s existing practices.

  • Develop accessories and other peripherals to compliment primary products.

Requirements:


  • Experience in the design of linear guides, drives, motors/controllers, torque transducers, force transducers, position measurement, servo-velocity and stepper motors, actuators, etc, for lab instrument scale (small mechanism) products.

  • Experience   in   basic   pneumatics,  humidity   and  temperature   control,  moulding  and   casting technologies for metals and plastics.

  • Expert knowledge in the use of computer aided design software, such as AutoCAD.

  • Experience in the design of control systems and a good understanding of the function of electronics and microprocessor based hardware.

  • High standard of documentation required both in terms of design management and internal and external communications, consistent with company practices and its ISO accreditation.

This role requires a person who really enjoys engineering design, has a sound knowledge of engineering principles and a positive and ‘can do’ attitude to design challenges.


Whilst the role will require close co-operation with many company departments, it requires the ability to work independently once product and design specifications are agreed.


This role is open to both experienced and newly qualified engineers with knowledge of electromechanical systems design and emplementation.

Biopharmaceutical firm UCB marks 10 years since Celltech takeover

A milestone has been celebrated by a biopharmaceutical company.

Slough-based UCB marked 10 years since they acquired British biotechnology company, Celltech, in an event earlier this month.

At the time of the take-over, Celltech was Europe’s leading biotechnology company.

The company, whose UK head office is in Bath Road, also celebrated the investment in research and development (R&D) and world class drug discovery and development that has happened since 2004.

“By bringing together Celltech and UCB we have pushed the boundaries of science to discover breakthrough medicines that can improve the lives of millions of people across the globe,” said Dr Roch Doliveux, UCB’s chief executive officer.

UCB specialised in small-molecule pharmaceutical chemistry and when it combined with Celltech’s advanced antibody technologies, they transformed into a leading European biopharmaceutical company.

Since the takeover, the company has significantly increased its annual UK R&D expenditure from £84m a year in 2003, to £142m in 2012, making it one of the UK’s leading biopharmaceutical R&D investors.

It employs more than 700 staff in the UK, of which more than 400 work in R&D.
