Are you an aspiring pharmaceutical sales representative seeking your first role in pharma sales? Or an experienced primary care pharmaceutical sales representative looking for a new challenge? Would you like the opportunity to work on behalf of one of the world’s most respected blue-chip companies as part of a major nationwide team expansion?

The organization in question is a global healthcare company that researches and develops innovative products in the areas of pharmaceuticals, vaccines and consumer health; they will be substantially upscaling their respiratory division and we are therefore seeking candidates in the following geographical areas:

In these newly created full time, permanent positions you will have responsibility for promoting a market leading portfolio of prescription only pharmaceutical products focussing on respiratory medicine (COPD/asthma); targeting GPs, Practice Nurses and retail pharmacists within your designated geographical area you will collaborate with territory colleagues to maximise prescribing of your brands, thereby driving an increase in sales and market share in this notoriously competitive therapy area.

  • If you have not previously worked in pharmaceutical sales you should have a good understanding of what working as a pharmaceutical sales representative selling to GPs entails, ideally supported by having carried out a day of work shadowing (shadowing is not an essential requirement however)
  • As the assessment process includes a sales role play and business planning exercise, we are specifically seeking individuals who have previous experience of territory/account planning and understand how to sell on a consultative basis in accordance with customer needs
  • Applicants should be educated to degree or equivalent level, preferably in a life science or business-based subject
  • Hold a full UK driving license (with no more than 6 points); please note we cannot accept applications from individuals with a prior driving ban
  • Eligible to work in the UK on a full time, permanent basis – unfortunately we will not be able to consider candidates requiring sponsorship.

In return, you will be rewarded with a generous basic salary (dependent upon experience and current remuneration) and provided with a package which will include tax free daily allowance, company car, laptop & mobile telephone, pension, private healthcare & performance related bonus, plus a range of flexible benefits customizable to suit you.
