Are you a Biomedical Scientist looking to leave the laboratory for a commercially-focused role in the life science industry?
• Location: Field Based – South UK

Our client is a well-established international life science company who provide quality IVD products and reagents used to diagnose infectious diseases in the clinical & healthcare sector. They require an experienced life scientist with experience with in vitro diagnostics to take on a dynamic role which will involve providing technical support for existing customers as well as identifying and developing sales for their product portfolio. This is an exciting opportunity with both sales and technical support elements so applicants must be open-minded, flexible and can work on their own initiative in order to achieve success in the varied day-to-day responsibilities of the role.
Working from a home-based location, the successful candidate will take on the South UK territory so a full UK driving licence and willingness to travel is essential. The ideal candidate will have strong written and verbal communication skills and must be able to communicate technical scientific information effectively in order to troubleshoot products and to develop sales with new and existing customers.
This role would be ideal for experienced biomedical or research scientists who are looking for a customer-focused, commercial position that will involve working with laboratories in a role that combines technical support and sales responsibilities. No previous sales experience is required, however, candidates must have experience with molecular diagnostics to be considered for this role. Full product and sales training will be provided by the client for the successful candidate.
