SwedenBIO is the Swedish life science industry organization with over 340 member companies. We aim to improve the business environment for the life science ecosystem by building networks, increasing knowledge transfer, and influencing policies. SwedenBIO organizes the largest life science partnering event in the Nordics – Nordic Life Science Days (NLSDays) – an annual conference with more than 1,500 delegates.
What you’ll do
The event sales manager’s main responsibility is tied to NLSDays. In this role, you will ensure that our leads and contacts generate sponsorships, exibitors and delegates to the conference. The role includes outreach activities that require substantial social skills. You will be responsible for back-office operations necessary for professional follow-ups, deals and contracts, which require the ability to build long-term relations and to manage negotiations. To succeed in this role, we believe that you are a structured team-player with a strong sales mindset.
This is a new role which will become an integral part of SwedenBIO’s office and a key component of our day-to-day operations. You will join a small and agile team of seven people with a start-up mentality. This means that everyone joins forces to generate value to our member companies and to push the frontiers of the entire life science ecosystem, in Sweden and abroad. You will work closely with the Managing Director of NLSDays.
We hope that you will contribute to an internal work culture where we appreciate diverse perspectives, and where we see our differences as complimentary factors that benefit our work as a team.
