Who you are…
With a degree in the life sciences (or demonstrable experience), you’ve been developing your role in sales or business development within real-world evidence (RWE) or patient-centred research services – and you’ve been hugely successful. As 2022 draws to an end, you’ve started to think about your next role, and about moving to a company that’s doing exciting work. And now you’ve found it!
What you’ll do…
You’ll be focusing your activity at the beginning of the opportunity funnel, creating new Sales Qualified Leads (SQLs) and developing them through to proposal generation. You’ll engage with the external ecosystem to identify prospective customers and commercial opportunities.
In addition, you’ll create and participate in thought leadership opportunities, representing Vitaccess and supporting marketing with ideas and direction to generate more Marketing Qualified Leads (MQLs).
You’ll generate and qualify leads through outbound prospecting and industry-based engagement, and win more revenue-generating business for Vitaccess through:
- individual outreach activity, and
- leadership and co-ordination of business development activities across the company.
Sorry, but it’s a no unless you have…
Previous outbound sales experience in the life sciences arena is a must – and it goes without saying that you’ve got excellent written and oral communication skills, as well as plenty of experience in collaborating with internal and cross-functional teams.
You’re skilled in negotiation and persuasion, and also have the ability to work alone and collaboratively… and you’ve got endless patience and perseverance.
Bonus points for…
Experience of using CRM software would be really useful (we use HubSpot).
Languages other than English to a standard that is useful at work (– we know the time and where the station is… but if you can order drinks, that’s never bad news).
