As a Commercial Manager your duties and responsibilities will be:

  • With excellent verbal and written skills, you will be able to influence and communicate effectively with others, working well as part of a team and ideally have experience of managing others. 
  • You will have good planning and organisation skills along with an ability to prioritise projects. 
  • With strong computer skills, it would be ideal if you were part qualified in RICS or CIOB and have experience in pharmaceutical, biotech or life science sectors.
  • The role will require visiting client sites and hence flexibility towards travelling will be required along with a full driving licence.

In return for this you will receive a salary of £55,000 - £75,000 dependant on experience.
