Applications are invited for a Business Development Manager for the water sector to join our growing team working at the cutting edge of molecular biodiversity monitoring. The role will focus on working with key clients in the water sector and related industries including utilities and water infrastructure. Experience in any of these industries and working on large water related projects is essential. Further experience working with protected species legislation, biomonitoring, policy / licensing, the mitigation hierarchy, biodiversity offsetting and net gain will be a distinct advantage.
NatureMetrics is a start-up technology company bringing high-throughput DNA sequencing technologies to the frontline of environmental management around the world.
We have grown steadily for three years and are now expanding following a recent investment raise. We are a team of bright, enthusiastic individuals who are excited to be breaking new ground and disrupting the world of biodiversity monitoring. We take great pride in our work and are seeking new team members who will do the same.
You will be part of a team of business developers, each responsible for different geographical regions and sectors and will report to a sector manager and ultimately the Business Development Director. You will also work closely with the rest of team across multiple departments. The role will ideally be based in our offices in Surrey, but this is not a prerequisite. The role may also involve occasional travel. This is a role that carries a high level of responsibility. You will be comfortable working autonomously where necessary, managing a small team and ultimately thrive as part of an already highly successful team.
Familiarity with the tools we use (e.g. environmental DNA and metabarcoding) is helpful but not essential for this role since full training will be provided. Of greater importance is experience with the water sector, preferably in the field of environmental management, ecology, biodiversity science/ conservation, or a project manager role.
