Our client, a leading multinational scientific organisation, is looking for a leader to head up one of their business units. The role will be strategically focused and suit someone who has a background in chemistry-based testing in the labs, who has moved up to senior management and is looking for a new challenge. Such is the diverse nature of the role; a high degree of commercial acumen is also required. The successful candidate will likely be able to demonstrate: –
- A degree (or equivalent) in a scientific subject – Chemistry, Forensic Science, etc
- Scientific / Testing / Analytical experience – although this isn’t a hands-on role, you need to have a grounding in the work being performed by the scientific staff under you
- Lab Management experience
- Broader strategic and operational experience – this person will have responsibility for P&L, the overall business plan, contributing to business development strategy, board level reporting, hiring, resource allocation, etc
- A strong understanding of the importance of health & safety and quality standards
The perfect candidate will have worked their way up in the labs of a scientific organisation from an analytical scientific role to management and have the commercial experience to be able to look at the bigger picture, drive strategy, growth and “own” the business plan.
You will be joining a reputable business which has thrived during recent market conditions and is continuing to grow at a pace. They offer excellent benefits, a great working environment and you will be joining a fantastic leadership team which is focused on upskilling – they hope to find someone who they can upskill but also learn from.
