Veterinary Sales Executive Interview - Louise Dunne

Date written : 21/11/2014

How did you come to work as a Veterinary Sales Executive?

After working as a registered veterinary nurse (RVN) for five years, I sought a new challenge but wanted to remain within the veterinary industry. I also wanted to go back to college at night to study for my Master’s degree and this role allows me to have time for that too.

I always wanted to travel around the country and having met many sales reps during my time in practice I had a good idea of what the role entailed.  When I saw the job opportunity from Medray I decided to send in my C.V. as I was very impressed with them as a company after attending their dental CVE and I knew I wanted to work for them.

What do you like most about your job so far?

I love travelling around the different counties of Ireland as each day there’s a different landscape to appreciate and no two days are the same! The work is very varied and there is never a boring day when on the road! Ireland has some amazing places so I have a very privileged office space.

What, if anything have you found challenging?

Locating practices can be challenging, especially when the weather is bad and the sat nav is having a bad day.  Apart from that I am really enjoying my time with Medray as I get to meet new people on a daily basis.

Could you describe a typical working day?

Each evening I write out a list of all of the practices I will be visiting and their location which prevents me going around in circles when I’m out on the road.  I hit the M50 for 8am hoping to avoid as much traffic as possible, then I ring the practices I will be visiting to remind them I will be popping by at some point. In-between my visits I respond to emails and phone calls.  I try to get around to as many practices as possible before heading home for 6pm.

What Veterinary Nursing skills do you still rely on in this role?

As a Veterinary Nurse I would consider myself exceptionally good at multi- tasking, working under pressure and also ever changing plans so I adapt quite well when a typical working day goes awry.

I have found the most beneficial aspect of my practice experience in relation to this role, is the fact I have used the majority of equipment myself so I am aware of the benefits to Veterinary Surgeons and Veterinary Nurses.

What do you miss most about veterinary practice?

I do miss working with animals but I have enough to keep me going at home, an occupational hazard of being a Veterinary Nurse really! The fact I get to meet so many new people each day makes up for the fact I often miss chatting with veterinary clients too.
