Medical sales jobs seen as top career choice

Medical sales jobs are proving to be one of the most popular career choices for young apprentices.

According to young people working towards a sales and marketing apprenticeship through Competitive Edge, a job in medical sales is seen as an extremely solid career move.

A job within the medical sales industry was termed a ‘safer bet’ in the fluctuating economic environment by apprentices based at Tamar Science Park in Derriford, Plymouth.

Thornbury-based Ben Wilson, 22, who is currently employed by technology firm Squirrel Medical, based at Tamar Science Park, told This is Plymouth, “I’ve been trying to get into sales and marketing for two or three years, but I needed experience.

“I previously worked in the motor trade, I did door-to-door canvassing, and supermarket jobs, but this has gone really well, and I’m now building relationships with clients,” Mr Wilson went on to say.

Squirrel Medical provides cost-effective pressure relieving equipment such as mattresses and cushions to providers based within the primary care sector.

In 1999, Squirrel Medical was announced as the sole supplier on the NHS agreement to specialise in mattresses and seating designed to relieve pressure for patients.
