A little bit about you:

We are looking for someone who is passionate about our products and driven to overachieve our business targets, by being extremely well planned, influential and collaborative.  This is an exciting and fast paced role, so you’ll need to be well organised and used to working to exceptionally fast turn around times. 

The ideal candidate will have great experience and contacts within the US market and be confident outreaching to new partners. 

You will be a collaborative and co-operative colleague to your teammates and will be unafraid to raise issues, focusing on solutions and motivating the team around you to do the same.

You need to be comfortable rolling your sleeves up and get stuck into the detail, whilst also being comfortable stepping away and taking on a more strategic role the rest of the time.
