Professional Search for Technical Sales Manager in Biopharmaceuticals

Case Study


Our client is the world’s leading authority on the application of Freezing Point Depression Technology for measuring the osmolality of solutions.


The company required a Sales Manager to cover the southeast region of the United Kingdom. Candidates would need a background in technical sales positions, demonstrated knowledge of the drug discovery process, and an existing network generated by previous sales into the biopharmaceutical market.

However, our client were unable to source appropriate candidates in the region as they had only recently expanded into the UK. Additionally, they faced the challenge of finding candidates who could easily travel to customers in the Oxbridge area and to the UK headquarters in Horsham.

Airswift Solution

Airswift provided comprehensive market research and salary benchmarking information by networking and mapping out all suitable candidates in the target region.

Phone interviews were conducted with several candidates to gain further information of their knowledge of drug development, as well as examples of their previous customers in the biopharmaceutical market.

There was a major focus on the biopharmaceutical market (large molecule drugs) rather than the pharmaceutical market (small molecule drugs), as well as existing network gained by previous experience selling into these pharmaceutical companies.


Airswift successfully identified a candidate who demonstrated a strong background knowledge on the drug discovery process and possessed an existing network selling into the biopharmaceutical market.

The candidate was selected to undergo the interview process and was successfully placed with our client.
