Graduate Sales Executive - Life Science - May or June 2018 intake


Love life sciences and sales but loath lab work? Did you love what you studied but don’t necessarily want a career in it…….realise that you are more target driven and high achieving? Then look no further we are looking for high achieving graduates in Life Sciences.

Looking for switched on grads that are target driven and can demonstrate that they are naturally high achieving.

In this dynamic sales role, you’ll be utilising the knowledge that you have studied for and you’ll be responsible for raising awareness and selling delegate places on a range of our conferences. You’ll be contacting senior decision makers to discuss their current requirements and helping them to evaluate how attending our events can accelerate their business objectives.

The harder you work the bigger the pay cheque. You can expect to earn between £30-£35K in your first year and potentially 40K in your second year. The On Target Earnings is uncapped so the sky really is the limit with many progressing to a management role within 18 months.

Our brand new offices are based in the heart of Victoria. You’ll join our 3 week intense sales academy combining both classroom theory and on the job learning where you’ll master the latest sales techniques from the best trainers in the industry. Giving you all the tools to enable you to not only meet but surpass your target earnings.

This is what the graduates that joined us last year are saying:

“Once a naïve inexperienced genetics graduate, now embracing the city life at Hanson Wade. Developing the audience for our Life Sciences Conferences enabled myself to hold onto my scientific background, but now in a more commercial setting. The extensive sales training meant I was able to progress through the sales progression scheme; reaching the position of Delegate Acquisition Manger in the minimum requirements possible. Office culture/environment is where the company flourishes. Being welcomed every morning to enthusiastic people makes Hanson Wade the company that it is today. For sure it is hard work, but you will end up loving what you do.”
