Product Marketing Specialist | Cellular Assays | South UK | to £32K (£37K OTE)

Ultrasound Simulation Sales Specialist | South West & Wales | to £45K (£55K OTE)

An exceptionally unusual opportunity to join a fast growing and innovative UK based healthcare organisation that provides high quality ultrasound simulation and training devices has become available.

These specialist products provide highly realistic feedback and resistance to ensure the user’s experience is as close as possible to actual scanning without a patient present. 

Within the UK market there are few other companies providing this type of product to the ultrasound industry, giving you a chance to develop the business quickly and effectively within a niche without the normal competitive pressures associated with a sales role.

To date, these products have been sold successfully through arranging and running training and demonstration workshops, giving the sonographers, consultants and professors a chance to get hands-on experience with the product, test it out themselves, and see the clinical benefits first hand. 

This type of sell would be particularly suited to someone who can demonstrate the clinical elements of the product to senior medical professionals. Those with a clinical background in ultrasound who are looking for their first venture into a more commercial role would find this position a fantastic introduction to the industry.

Alternatively, those with an established sales background who are looking to work closer with a clinically orientated product would also be well suited to this position.

Supported by a clinically trained sales manager you will have all the tools at your disposal to increase your chance of success in this role.

Offering a full product training package, a competitive basic salary, and uncapped and generous commission structure this role would be well suited to an ambitious and clinically orientated individual.

European Sales Manager | Ophthalmology | Europe | to €85K (€120K OTE)

I am working with a small, agile, privately owned start up organisation that has developed a very exciting product range and procedure to help treat presbyopia.


With a sizable investment and a world renowned owner within the ophthalmology sector, this position will be the perfect role for someone wanting to prove themselves and be part of something exciting.
