Love life sciences but loath lab work?

Want to use your scientific skills in a business environment?

In our Life Sciences division, the harder you work the bigger your pay cheque.  With uncapped commissions being paid on every sale you make you’ll thrive in the Life Science division at Hanson Wade if you’re ambitious with a strong desire to be successful in business.

Starting in February 2017, this is your opportunity to join a London based, dynamic sales team who specialise in life science business events.  We’ll train and develop you to be a professional sales person.  You wont be restricted by company structures that determine the speed of your progression.  You’ll create your own goals and we’ll give you the training and tools to be able to make you the best you can be.

Phil Clark our Commercial Sales Director says “Having been in sales since I graduated, I can honestly say that there are very few companies like Hanson Wade.  A business with a great attitude and a desire for each sales person to be rewarded for their own hard work.  New opportunities are always given to the best people, not the longest serving. For the right person, senior sales roles or sales management can be achieved in months, not years.  To make the most of the opportunities, if you’re highly driven, we’ll always make sure you’re in a role with the greatest earning potential.”

At Hanson Wade we provide a great platform for both graduates and 2nd jobbers to accelerate a sales career in business and keep up to date with the latest developments across the life sciences industry.  We see this as a two way investment over the long term.  Our employees commit to constantly learn and push themselves.  Hanson Wade provides a long term learning environment that guides you through the career milestones from first tentative steps to being a well rounded business professional capable of managing high value strategic sales and leading sales teams.

More about the role:

You’ll be working in a dynamic phone based sales environment.  You’ll be responsible for raising awareness to senior scientists throughout the pharmaceutical industry and selling delegate places on a range of our life science business conferences. You’ll be contacting senior scientists to discuss their current requirements and help them to evaluate how attending our life science events will help them and their organisation.
