Takapuna, Auckland

International Business Development Manager (POSITION FILLED)

Job description

Based in our open plan modern offices, AFT is a progressive Takapuna headquartered International Pharmaceutical Company listed on the NZX and ASX with 112 licensees around the world and more planned.

We also have wholly owned sales affiliates in Australia and Asia.

The role will involve:

  • Management of designated licensees outside of NZ [currently BE, LX, Nordics, IL, UK, IE, FR]

  • Responsibility for our Hong Kong Sales Office

  • Business analysis of our global business

  • Management of our IP portfolio

    We need an energetic person to grow and manage designated parts of our international business together with our alliance management team. Team work across departments is very important and AFT operates a flat management structure with a results orientated culture being important.

    Business analysis and forecasting of our licensee sales is a further and important element which requires a significant level of spread sheet skills and a good understanding of budgets and numbers.

    The majority of time will still be in our Takapuna office but some overseas travel and teleconferences during business hours of licensees in Europe is required.

    Empathy with different cultures and/or other language skills such French/Spanish or German would be highly desirable.

    We strongly support a diverse workforce which is important given our wide customer base and diverse internal workforce which originates from 26 countries.

    Our incumbent is leaving us after 3 years to undertake international travel. He had a Master of Bioscience Enterprise which is a particularly suitable qualification in our experience. A suitable degree and technical competence is important. Although experience is useful we would look carefully at the applicant's aptitude to learn on the job. Enthusiasm and results orientation is most important.

    We will currently only accept candidates with the right to work and live in New Zealand. Please apply directly and we look forward to hearing from you.
