Job Description

This is a desirable opportunity for a high calibre graduate to join an esteemed and rapidly growing company which specialises in supporting the world’s top pharmaceutical organisations. It prides itself on offering a top-class service and has worked hard to establish itself as a key partner to its clients. Due to growth, our client is looking to recruit a Business Development Executive to join its friendly and hardworking team. 

Responsibilities will include driving sales across the UK, US and Europe for the company services. This will include cold calling and prospecting as well as client visits across the world once opportunities have been developed. You will convey complex topics to clients in a range of meetings. Furthermore, you will look to prepare and deliver presentations as well as teach clients how to forecast and price pharmaceuticals.

To be considered...

To be considered for the role you will have a 2:1 or higher degree in a life-science, economics or similar discipline. You will be a good listener who can ask the right questions and understand customer requirements in detail. You will continually update your knowledge and seek improvement in your abilities within the sales and pharmaceutical sectors.  You should be naturally optimistic, resilient and have an outgoing personality. You should be well organised and able to prioritise your time effectively. The ability to effectively communicate complex ideas and topics is imperative. An understanding of statistical concepts and spreadsheet modelling is beneficial, and you should be highly numerate and computer literate - especially in Excel. Some travel in the UK and overseas will be part of the role, so you should have flexibility to accommodate. 

You will be rewarded with a starting salary of £27,000 (increasing to £29,000 upon successful completion of a six month probationary period) as well as a generous bonus scheme that reflects your individual performance. A company car allowance will also be offered. Twenty-seven days’ holiday a year in addition to Bank Holidays and a matching company pension contribution of 5% of your salary.
