Working as a Virtual Territory Manager


Working as a Virtual Territory manager. If you are a Veterinary nurse who is looking for a change of direction this post might be for you. With RVN jobs in high demand and the pressure of veterinary nursing frustrating some, industry offers an alternative. We are regularly recruiting vet nurses for pharmaceutical companies to work as a virtual territory manager. Pre Covid this was always head office based, since then it has been opened up to home working which has removed the geographical barrier to entry. Can you be a vet nurse and be home based?

What the job entails:

Virtual territory managers work for a specific client and will receive detailed training in order to provide advice and support. You may be covering nutrition, arthritis, weight management, oncology drugs, among many others. Chances are you will then be given an account to manage covering a region or area in the UK . Practices can call and email you with queries, seeking specific product advice as and where required. In addition, you may well be giving product demonstrations online to veterinary surgeons and other vet nurses using the products. Traditionally you needed to be a mobile to be a territory manager, not any more…..

What can you earn?

Salaries range between £22- 24k per year. Combine this with the fact that you’re working a 35 hr week with no on call or weekends. If you are feeling the burnout in practice this can be a lifeline and a great opportunity you didn’t know was available to you.

Surely there are some negative aspects?

This wouldn’t be a fair article without listing the downsides to the job for some (not all!)

  • Working from home is not for everyone
  • Self motivation can also be an issue
  • We have found that veterinary nurses miss the hustle and bustle of practice
