The Role

Business Development Executive for a leading pharma research agency, based in southwest London. Paying up to £32,000 plus the opportunity to make considerable additional bonus.


The Company

The Role

This role is going to be selling the market research services of my client. You will need to have experience of building and maintaining high level relationships with clients, though this does not need to have happened within pharma. With this being a more strategic and consultative sell then the sales cycle will be longer, there are no quick wins, but when prospective business is converted, it is high value and in turn that means that there are huge potential earning opportunities.

  • Identify, prospect and win new business
  • Opening up doors for the market research directors to meet with prospective clients.
  • Pitch for business alongside therapy area specialists and senior directors
  • Keeping your finger on the button with regards to what is happening in the industry



An experienced business developer with a fantastic grasp of the pharma sector and a keen passion for new business.

  • Resilience is key
  • Ideally you will have experience of selling market research as a service
  • Experience of selling to pharma companies is key
  • A natural problem solver
  • Happy to work independently

Which team do you work in?
I work in the Market Research and Business Intelligence team.

Which area do you specialise in?

I specialise in senior market research roles, working with a variety of PMR agencies and consultancies. I also work with our pharma company clients, covering market insight/business intelligence positions.

How do you keep up-to-date with the issues in your sector?

With a well established network of clients and candidates, keeping up to date with industry news is usually quite straightforward! Alongside speaking to those directly involved in the industry, I spend time browsing relevant industry websites and reading articles on LinkedIn

What's your favourite film and why?
I would probably say either the Batman Dark Knight trilogy or the Bourne Films. I think Christopher Nolan's a great director and I really like the premise of the Bourne films - I love a good conspiracy theory!

If you could invent one thing what would it be?
Maybe Bernard's Watch...?

What makes you #DistinctlyDifferent?
This is a tough one! I'm going to go for a couple of clichéd statements - my never-say-die attitude and the fact I'm the most organised recruitment consultant you'll meet. I've a folder for everything!
