About the role:
As a strategic partnership manager (we call this role “Alliance Manager” internally) you will join a focused and growing strategic alliance management team within our wider Commercial Department.
You will be the ambassador for the customer within Bespak and will support your colleagues in the business development team by being their onsite “go-to” person with a wide range of commercial responsibilities.
Initially, this will see you working closely with a range of other internal departments to respond to “requests for proposal” and manage the generation of very high-quality bid-winning proposals.
Upon winning the bid, you will be responsible for the successful on-boarding and on-going long-term partnership between Bespak and the Customer for the lifecycle of the relationship or product.
Bespak partners with leading global pharmaceutical and biotech companies and you will provide professional support to all parties, facilitate dialogue and influence at all levels, in order to align Bespak’s strategy with that of our customers. You will effectively manage all internal and external stakeholders to deliver successful communications and strategies that align goals and lead to KPI achievement.
Whilst you will work with colleagues across all departments and sites you will work particularly closely with the programme management and finance teams to ensure that contractual commitments are being delivered and to provide accurate financial and commercial analysis, reports and forecasts to the business and alliance partners.
It goes without saying – you are a people person, known for your influencing, presentational, negotiating and communication skills.
You have worked in commercial roles focused on strategic long-term relationships and have significant experience and examples of successful customer outcomes to talk to us about at interview.
Naturally business savvy, you are credible when speaking to high profile customers, and have the ability to present, report and discuss technical, legal and financial information in a down to earth and understandable way.
You know this job can sometimes be challenging – but you are used to this and regularly act under pressure to provide timely and clear business recommendations and proposals.
You are likely degree educated (or equivalent) and have experience ideally gained in the pharmaceutical, medical devices, life sciences or a similar sector.
We are committed to creating a diverse and inclusive workplace where all employees feel that they can be their real and authentic selves whilst being treated with dignity and respect. We are always happy to explore flexible working and we are a proud member of the disability confident employer scheme. We are an equal opportunity employer who will review your application based solely on your skills, experience & potential.
