Sales & Business Development
Multiple locations
Posted on Tuesday, February 21, 2023

About Us

We’re an award-winning innovative tech consultancy - a team of creative problem solvers. Since 1993 we’ve been finding better, more sustainable ways to solve complex technology problems for some of the world’s leading organisations and delivered solutions that millions of people use every day.

In the last 30 years we won several awards, including a prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the Innovation category for our Enterprise Agile delivery approach.

Operating from 26 locations across the world, we bring together teams of creative experts with diverse backgrounds and experiences, who enjoy working and learning in our collaborative and open culture and are committed to world-class delivery.

We want to continue to grow our team with people just like you!

About the Role

Our growing Healthcare & Life Sciences industry brings business, technology and managed service consulting together to drive value and to solve the industry issues and challenges.

As the Sales Lead for our Healthcare & Life Sciences industry, you’ll play an integral role in helping us further expand our client base to sustainably grow the practice.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a growing and successful consulting firm in a role that offers:

  • Provides opportunity on a global scale.
  • The opportunity to work within a successful practice that enjoys a high profile within both BJSS and the industry sector it services.
  • A peer group that is dynamic and successful.

We fundamentally believe that there is no textbook approach or solution to achieve lasting results; nor that a glossy and expensively produced PowerPoint is going to help our clients deliver it.

So, what do we expect you to do? We want you to deliver on these things:

  • As an expert in Healthcare & Life Sciences business development, you’ll be able to sell to all types of work packages; from pure consulting engagements and propositions, right through to digital transformation and Modern Managed Services.

  • You’ll effectively guide and challenge both colleagues and clients to harness innovation and technology-enabled solutions to accelerate business disruption and enhance agility.
  • You’ll work collaboratively, balancing quick wins whilst driving clients to achieve long-term, sustainable success.
