Product Manager – Microbiology – Antibiotic Sensitivity Testing (AST)
Mast has over 50 years experience of manufacturing and selling antibiotic sensitivity testing products. This is our core competence!
In recent years the Mast has invested heavily in improving the quality and capability of its manufacturing function, and the quality of its products have improved as a result. Mast has also extended its’ core product range and technological competence.
Yet we have failed to fully capitalise on this core competency and in spite of a good track record in innovation, our market share in many markets leaves plenty of opportunity for growth.
We are now looking to recruit a knowledgeable I.V.D. marketeer to drive focussed sales delivery in all geographical locations.
The focus of this role will be to analyse both European and Worldwide AST In Vitro Diagnostic (IVD) markets. To devise , lead and drive the delivery of sales and marketing strategies that deliver substantial and sustainable year on year growth in sales/gross margin.
This is a strategic sales and marketing role – it is about detailed research and analysis to identify growth opportunities. It is most definitely not about producing glossy literature and promotions.
We are looking for someone with a background in a marketing led product management position - in a profitable and growing commercial life science organisation.
A natural leader who can communicate highly effectively at all levels and positively influence behaviour to deliver. Someone with the knowledge/experience of the trends of both diagnostics microbiology and the different geographical IVD marketplaces.
If you are interested in helping to grow us from our roots – please forward your full CV together with a short resume of what attributes and skills you can bring to this role to Lyn Stoddern by 28th February 2014.
