Our network extends across more than 50 countries, including all the EU and EEA Member States, together with Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, India, Japan, South Korea and Turkey, amongst others.

The role will involve developing and leading business development opportunities for both the network and our core business. The successful applicant will need to have a willingness to travel, with the aim of building strong relationships across our network. The role will also require ensuring appropriate mechanisms are in place for training, evaluation, budgets, sales and contracts – supported by our network team and reporting to our senior management.

Applicants should have previous experience in international business development.
