Job Description

Our not for profit client requires an experienced Business Development professional to further grow their business from a strong foundation.  The successful and dynamic young business was founded to enable the sharing of research tools within the global life science community. Research reagents, such as antibodies, mice and cell lines are the cornerstones of basic scientific research; without them, scientists could not test their hypotheses, validate their ideas or develop new concepts. Our client acts as a marketplace for scientists to maximise commercial opportunities for these tools and share information. Candidates must have previously had direct line responsibility as they will manage two Business Development Managers, a Head of Scientific Portfolio and a Sales Administrator. They must also have experience in the identification, due diligence, evaluation, appropriation and commercialisation of life science reagents. A degree in life sciences or a related field is required together with experience of building and implementing a commercial strategy, together with creating accurate forecasts.
