Sales and marketing

Sales and marketing is a big part of our Pharmaceuticals and Vaccines businesses.

Essentially, its role is to commercialise our products. That could mean bringing vaccines to protect people against diseases, marketing our medicines or identifying new research and development opportunities.

Sales and marketing is an exciting, evolving area. We’re constantly looking to drive business improvement, deliver greater value to patients and accelerate our growth. The work can also be extremely diverse. Many of our commercial activities involve liaising with governments, regulatory and health authorities.

Our portfolio includes both established brands and newer, innovative medicines. We’re proud of our products. We therefore give our customer-facing professionals in-depth science training to present our medicines and vaccines properly and reward them for their ability to build relationships with the healthcare industry. By putting the interests of patients first, we make sales and marketing an extremely rewarding career option.

Do I have the right qualities?

We believe in accountability, empowering our people and creating a pipeline of future managers and leaders. So we need passionate people who can think strategically, act with intergrity and live according to our values and behaviours. You should be commercially savvy, ideally with a medical/science interest and an excellent ability to build relationships. A focus on performance and the ability to react to market change are also important. At a senior level, we need people who can create a vision for positive change and inspire others.
