The role involves the management of large wholesalers and distribution groups nationally, focussing on the likes of Alliance Healthcare and Accord Healthcare amongst others including Independent Pharmacies and Hospitals.

Whilst previous experience in the OTC pharmaceutical market is beneficial it is not everything - they want someone who is commercially aware, happy to take complete ownership and accountability of their accounts and puts the client first.
These guys want someone to join their business with a passion for progression so just being able to do this job is not enough for them they want someone to come in and work their way through the ranks in any area of the business. If you want to progress, then we want to talk to you.
