Biox is a research-based manufacturer of novel scientific instruments for use in bio-medical R&D. We are looking for a trainee sales & marketing manager to join our small team of scientists, engineers and technicians. You would aim to take charge of all activities related to sales, marketing and customer support. Sales activities would include exhibiting at scientific and professional conferences and expos, and communications with potential customers via e-mail, phone and demo-visits. Marketing activities would include the design and maintenance of sales materials including brochures and the company website. Customer support would include training, e-mail correspondence and problem solving. After initial training, we expect you to be self-motivated and able to work largely unsupervised.

You are more likely to have a technical than a business background, but formal qualifications are less important than proficiency and a willingness to learn. Of prime importance is an outgoing personality with exceptional communications skills in English and at least one other major European language. You will also need to be competent in Word, PhotoShop, html, javascript, php and MySQL. In addition, we would support you in your continuing professional development.

This is a new position in a growing university spin-out company, based in an incubation facility of London South Bank University. Working hours and holidays are flexible. Remuneration will be in the form of a basic salary plus a sales-related bonus, with the basic rate starting at ~£24k/yr depending on relevant qualifications and experience, to be reviewed after a 6-month probation.

You need to have UK residency rights and an appropriate work permit. Send us your CV and a motivation letter, if you are interested. The closing date for applications is Friday 14th February 2018, with interviews in early March.
