Business Development Manager (30-40K – plus bonus)
Health Press Limited is a medical publisher providing print and digital resources, and content licencing, to the healthcare sector. Our educational materials are used globally by pharmaceutical companies, healthcare professionals and patients; and further the company’s mission of promoting health, effectively.
The successful candidate will work in close collaboration with the Senior Publications Developer and Publisher, and will help us to grow the business by developing new and existing products and services, acquiring new contacts, and by independently generating new business.
Central to this role will be developing and growing sales within the pharmaceutical market, and will include:
- Bulk book sales (for the ‘Fast Facts’ series of over 70 titles)
- Content-licensing deals (‘Fast Facts’ book content and ‘Patient Pictures’ clinical illustrations and notes)
- Securing advertising sales and sponsorship for the ‘Embarrassing Problems’ website
The role requires a commercially minded ‘people person’ with excellent communication, relationship-building, problem-solving and customer-service skills. Some experience of the healthcare sector and knowledge of the pharmaceutical industry, especially within marketing or medical affairs, would be a significant advantage; as would an interest in international travel (mainly USA/Europe). Sales experience, whilst preferable, is not essential as training will be provided.
This role presents a unique opportunity for personal and professional development in a small, dynamic and friendly company. Benefits include 28 days’ holiday and a performance-based bonus.
To apply, please send your CV and covering letter to Geoff Covey.
“I’m a Medical Editor Plus”
If this is you, Health Press Limited would love to hear from you. While we are seeking an experienced freelance medical editor to provide back-up editorial services on an as-needed basis, we are also looking for an individual who wishes to get to know our brands inside and out and can bring new ideas and skills to our small creative team.
Health Press Limited publishes the Fast Facts medical handbook series and the healthcare websites www.embarrassingproblems.com and www.patientpictures.com.
Your work will primarily involve copy editing and proofreading of Fast Facts handbooks, working closely with our world-class authors and illustrators at all stages of production to ensure the content is the best of its kind on the market. You will need to have a minimum of 3 years’ medical editing experience and be switched on to generating ideas that will improve the effectiveness of our health-promoting content. Additional skills (e.g. copy writing, SEO, digital licensing) would be an advantage. Some on-site collaboration is favoured, and for the right candidate there is the opportunity for this to expand into a full-time position in our offices just outside Oxford.
In the first instance, please contact Senior Editor Sharon de Botte at email@example.com with your CV, hourly rate, and a covering letter detailing why you would be the ‘best fit’ for this role.
