We’re looking for a Business Development Lead with a strong STEM background to join TTP’s Omics team.

Omics at TTP

The Omics team provides a core focus for TTP’s activities in genomics, proteomics and future omics. We are looking to build upon a decade of experience working with some of the most exciting start-ups in this field, including developing tools for sequencing, sample extraction and library preparation.

Exploring and creating our own novel IP, TTP are innovating across the Omics field from spatial biology and single cell analytics to novel approaches in RNA, DNA and protein sequencing.

TTP works at the intersection of biology, physical science and engineering. We invent, design and manufacture products and technologies in areas including (but not limited to) cell therapies, point of care diagnostics, high-throughput drug discovery, molecular detection and cancer screening. Multidisciplinary teams of scientists, engineers and designers collaborate to realise the most ambitious challenges set by our clients; global market leaders, as well as exciting technology start- and scale ups.

The role

We’re looking for a senior business developer with experience in the Omics field. Working with the Omics team you’ll play key role in its growth and direction.

You’ll research and identify new business opportunities, including growth areas, trends, customers, partnerships, products and services, and new ways of reaching existing markets. You’ll be building on existing networks as well as developing customer relationships to build a solid sales pipeline.

Business development within TTP is deeply intergrated within our technical teams. You’ll be using your technical background to understand potential opportunities and act as a bridge between the client and TTP’s project leads in capturing requirements and delivering new proposals.

With little formal internal process at TTP, we are quick to give you a high degree of freedom and ownership in how you do your work. Your market and technology insight will enable you to uncover valuable new business opportunities and even new areas of technology.

The opportunity includes international travel to meet with clients and attend global conferences. Depending on your prospecting focus, you could make between 6 and 12 trips each year to visit prospects, keep up to date with the state of the art technologies at conferences, and discuss value propositions at trade shows.


  • Extensive, demonstrative business development experience in the field of Omics (genomics, proteomics, multi-omics)
  • You bring with you an established network of contacts with whom you’ve build strong, long-term relationships
  • Capability to work collaboratively with interdisciplinary, technical, colleagues
  • Excellent communication skills, and comfortable in a client-facing role
  • A willingness to travel internationally to meet with clients and attend global conferences
  • A strong academic STEM background
  • Located within the UK or happy to relocate (a comprehensive relocation package is available), with the ability to work on-site in Melbourn some of the time

Nice to have, but not essential:

  • Experience writing technical project proposals
  • Experience of using or developing ‘Omics technologies
