Seeking recent graduates in Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Microbiology or a similar field for awesome biological robot based high jinks.
You will be liaising and making sales with world-renowned scientists, helping to provide the ever-changing voice of the customer, and crucially, providing front-line biological applications and sales support to our customers and Singer Instruments’ international workforce.
Additionally, you will be assisting, and at times covering for Territory Managers, getting involved in testing new products and software, developing applications papers, organising and attending meetings, presenting webinars, keeping up with life science trends and innovations, and increasing brand awareness within key scientific communities.
This is an important, international role, at an extremely exciting time. We are looking for a passionate and focused biologist to help drive our continued exponential growth and support our customers and our team worldwide.
This role could be for you if…
You will report directly to the International Sales Manager. You will also work extremely closely with our international sales force at home and abroad; international distributors; our logistics team; the finance team; and operational teams, to support big-ticket, business-to-business sales activities across the globe.
This is a sales role first and foremost, but you’ll get involved in applications and product planning, and stay at the forefront of cutting-edge research!
You will report directly to the International Sales Manager. The successful applicant will be a linchpin, a proactive, versatile salesperson, helping to maintain the company’s lead in global laboratory automation. You will work especially closely with our wonderful customers and collaborators; our marketing team; the internal and remote sales force – in Singer laboratories across four different time zones; as well as our Customer Success, Strategic, Research, and Product teams to automate science across the globe.
The work you do will help scientists in laboratories in over 50 countries accelerate their research efforts on global challenges such as cures for cancer and solutions for renewable energies.
As an entry-level position in a relatively small and rapidly-expanding business, you will experience a varied role, challenging you and allowing you to gain exposure to many aspects of business that larger companies would be less likely to provide to scientists during their careers. Some of the things you will get to be involved in are:
£20,000 – 24,000 p.a
Profit Share for Nerds
Equity for Nerds
-(Staff ownership scheme)
30 days holiday
including Bank Holidays

Singer Instruments, headquartered in Somerset on the edge of Exmoor, develop laboratory automation to accelerate research for scientists who want to make the world a better place. The company supports a global customer base, across a spectrum of interests such as healthcare, antibiotics, biofuels, renewable fabrics, and plant-based alternatives to meat.
As an employee-owned company, Singer puts their people first. Singer Instruments are very proud to have won the Somerset Business Awards Employer of the Year. By supporting our teams and investing in our people, we get the best results for our customers.

The atmosphere is relaxed, attitudes are positive, and nobody wears a suit. Work in a rapidly growing business should be fun, so Singer Instruments take any opportunity possible to celebrate success. Did somebody say BBQ?!
