About The Role
Cambridge Design Partnership is different.  We are a world-class product development consultancy driven by technology but inspired by meeting end user needs to create commercial success.  To achieve this we have a wide range of capabilities from front end insight and industrial design, through science and engineering, to regulatory support. Our expertise is delivered by teams who specialise in the requirements of three major industry sectors: Healthcare, Consumer and Industrial.

We are seeking a dynamic and self-motivated professional to lead the business development efforts in the Medical Therapy sector. Your objective will be to identify commercial opportunities to exploit our skills and experience for the benefit of new and existing medical device clients. In addition to introducing new prospects, an important part of your role will include working closely with the sector head and our experienced technical specialists, to support them in writing proposals, and closing sales. If you can spot trends and can create opportunities in the market, love talking 
with (and listening to!) prospective clients to generate early stage leads, enjoy networking at conferences and nurturing prospects, and if you delight in the freedom that comes from working in a dynamic organisation, then you will have fun and thrive here!

This will be an exciting time to join us as we transition from one of Cambridge’s fastest growing technical consultancies towards global leadership in our sectors.
