Following Abbott’s acquisition of St. Jude Medical, we continue to invest in our commercial offering, in our efforts to provide a best-in-class service to our customers, whilst ensuring the achievement of the Company’s strategic and operational objectives and quality standards.

We are now recruiting for an experienced Contracts Manager to support the Cardiac Arrhythmia and Heart Failure businesses, managing NHS and private tenders and quotes across UK & Ireland, ensuring compliance with terms of contract.

Responsibilities include:

  •         Scouting for tender and quote opportunities, by using available resources, including monitoring of Trust tender websites and information supplied by the sales teams;
  •         Maintaining an accurate tender and quote database and audit trail;
  •         Act as the first point of contact for all tender and quote enquiries, and ensure timely resolution;
  •         Project managing each tender and quote to ensure timely submission;
  •         Maintaining the accuracy of the price database and acting as a gatekeeper for pricing;
