The Job

If you thrive in a dynamic and fast-paced environment, AGC Biologics will be the perfect match for you!
As Proposal Manager, you will transform customer Request for Proposals (RFP) into winning proposals and be very involved during the sales process by providing technical/operational expertise.  The selected individual will interact intensively with business development and technical colleagues, as well as with senior management.

Furthermore, you should be able to collaborate with and collect input from Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) to produce comprehensive, technically accurate, properly formatted and, not least, persuasive proposals. An interest, and perhaps knowledge, regarding sales data tracking and analysis is relevant. This process helps us/you to provide insight in how AGC Biologics can win even more proposals.

Further key responsibilities as a Proposal Manager:

  • Create winning proposals to drive revenue, growth and profitability
  • Evaluate RFPs to determine the appropriate project scope and requirements

It is important that you have a solid understanding of drug development and have 2-4 years’ relevant work experience preferably from a Contract Development and Manufacturing Organization (CDMO). Specific knowledge in the field of mammalian, microbial and cell & gene therapy is a strong plus. Since we are an international company, excellent skills in both verbal and written English are required. Attention to detail is a must with strong organizational skills. We expect that you would describe yourself as highly skilled in communication and in working in cross-functional teams across several locations.
