This week we are pleased to be highlighting a unique opportunity for a highly technical individual with strong commercial acumen. If you want to be the face of a business, facilitating the seamless transition of ideas, propositions and workplans between technical teams, commercials teams and clients, this could be the position for you.
The role is with a growing Microbiology testing business who service a broad range of industries and are constantly developing upon new projects and broadening their offering, keeping the team engaged and revitalised. Despite being a multinational, this business work hard to maintain a comfortable working environment with a real family feel. They place real emphasis on promoting from within and training opportunities will be plentiful.
In this position you would support consultations of new and existing clients, re-evaluating their needs and communicating action plans to the technical team. Acting as a bridge between key functions of the business, you will hold a range of responsibilities including identifying new business opportunities, representing the business at national and international conferences and leading studies (training will be provided).
The right candidate for this role will have a background in biocides/virucides and a sound knowledge of BPR. Ideally you would hold a PhD but this can be accounted for through additional industrial experience. You will need to have held relevant laboratory and commercially-focused roles with a strong affinity for client interaction and team liaison.
These types of positions do not become available often so we would recommend applying if any of the above has peaked your interest. The combination of the business itself and the variety of the role make this opportunity one not to be missed.
