A high technology business dedicated to the development and marketing of novel diagnostic kits is hiring a Key Account Executive as a result of expansion and growth.

This company have recently won an award for international trade and development, one of the highest awards bestowed on a UK company.
Reporting to the UK Sales Manager, you will enjoy managing defined accounts and exploring new areas of growth for the business. You will assume responsibility for group account strategy and work with territory representatives to enforce a top down and bottom up approach to sales.
Another focus of this role is promoting the contract laboratory services this company also provide. You would work closely with the marketing team and territory sales specialists in order to encourage existing and new customers to use their latest analytical testing services.
