You will join an expanding science-based, biodiversity monitoring start-up. Having just closed our Series A funding round and secured a new HQ in Guildford, the business is poised for strong growth.

NatureMetrics is a high growth medium sized company leading the revolution in molecular biodiversity monitoring, enabling environmental managers to measure and monitor biodiversity with DNA-based tools.

In the same way forensic DNA sampling is used on crime scenes, Naturemetrics offer similar technology to assess impacts on wild-life genetics in projects across various sectors. We have grown rapidly over the last five years and have exciting plans for our future global growth.

This position requires an experienced commercial manager with a background in ecology or biodiversity monitoring to identify and deliver Naturemetrics' eDNA products to clients who offer Nature based solutions. An established network of Nature based solutions providers is therefore important.

- Identify key clients with credibility and a desire to deliver high quality NBS

- Work with clients to sell NatureMetrics monitoring services

- Identify opportunities for working with certification bodies, standard setters etc to develop standardised metrics for biodiversity monitoring in the context of Nature Based Solutions.

- Build a global team who can address this sector both from UK and, as we expand, in North America, Africa, South America and SE Asia.

- This role reports to our Business Development Director

- The role would not have direct reports to begin with but would have the potential to develop a global team along with the development of a sizable market opportunity

- Work with the wider business development team and product development team to exchange knowledge and ideas and manage joint projects e.g. with our business development managers in the energy or supply chain sectors whose clients also have Nature Based Solutions

What you need:

- Knowledge of the Nature Based Solutions sector is essential

- Commercial experience, including in sales is desirable

- Background in ecological science, conservation biology is a benefit but not essential
