Eurofins Selcia Limited is a contract research organisation and one of the world’s leading providers of custom radiochemistry and isotope labelling services specializing in the synthesis of compounds labelled with carbon-14 and tritium.  We have a proven track record of delivering challenging isotope labelling projects to high quality standards and our customer base throughout Europe, North America and Japan includes many of the leading Life Sciences, Pharmaceutical, Agrochemical and Specialty Chemicals companies.  

We are actively seeking a Technical Sales Officer to join our growing Technical Sales Team and Radiochemistry Business Unit. This position can also be home-office based.

Eurofins Scientific is an international life sciences company, providing a unique range of analytical testing services to clients across multiple industries, to make life and our environment safer, healthier and more sustainable. From the food you eat, to the water you drink, to the medicines you rely on, Eurofins works with the biggest companies in the world to ensure the products they supply are safe, their ingredients are authentic and labelling is accurate. Eurofins believes it is a global leader in food, environmental, pharmaceutical and cosmetics products testing and in agroscience CRO services. It is also one of the global independent market leaders in certain testing and laboratory services for genomics, discovery pharmacology, forensics, CDMO, advanced material sciences and in the support of clinical studies.

In over just 30 years, Eurofins has grown from one laboratory in Nantes, France to over 50,000 staff across a network of more than 900 independent companies in over 50 countries and operating more than 800 laboratories. Eurofins offers a portfolio of over 200,000 analytical methods to evaluate the safety, identity, composition, authenticity, origin, traceability and purity of biological substances and products, as well as providing innovative clinical diagnostic testing services, as one of the leading global emerging players in specialised clinical diagnostics testing.

In 2020, Eurofins generated total revenues of EUR € 5.4 billion, and has been among the best performing stocks in Europe over the past 20 years.


You will proactively support the team in securing a diverse pipeline of synthesis and analytical projects in line with agreed business targets and participate in sales and marketing activities for Eurofins Selcia Ltd.  You will be responsible for the generation of competitive quotations by researching and compiling all available relevant and necessary technical, commercial and safety information to generate technical proposals for custom synthesis and 14C radiolabelling. You will be a point of contact for clients and provide advice during a project lifecycle.

Experience of the preparation of technical quotations for radiosynthesis, custom synthesis, process chemistry or chemical manufacturing would be an advantage but is not essential as a comprehensive training program will be provided and you will be fully supported by our BD team.  Candidates with a background in Technical Sales or Business Development in a related scientific field would also be considered and the role could suit an experienced isotope chemist looking for a change of career away from the bench.


We are seeking applicants with a Ph.D. in synthetic organic chemistry or a first degree in chemistry with industrial experience within a synthetic organic chemistry environment. Candidates should possess good knowledge of the life sciences industry and synthetic organic chemistry, or ideally 14C isotope chemistry.

You will be able to demonstrate a strong history of achievement and the ability to apply your skills to a wide range of tasks.  You will have good organizational and planning skills with an attention to detail and be able to work both independently and as a member of a team to achieve challenging sales targets. You will possess excellent interpersonal and communication skills combined with a strong customer-focused approach and be able to represent the company at business meetings and conferences.

In return Eurofins Selcia Ltd offers an attractive and competitive reward package.
