About the role

Salfarm has decided to change their go-to-market strategy, transforming their business in Finland from sales via a distributor to a direct sales approach.

About you

Alternatively, you come from a similar role from a relevant veterinary company as this role requires a strong understanding of the Finnish veterinary market and regulatory environment. You have a proven track record of success in other sales roles, preferably in the animal pharmaceutical or medical equipment industry. You are a strategic thinker with the ability to develop and execute sales plans to achieve business objectives. Additionally, you have excellent communication, negotiation and interpersonal skills, and have the ability to work independently and collaboratively in a fast paced dynamic environment.
