Roles: Healthcare Compliance Specialist (Kenya) and Key Account Manager (Ghana)
Client requirement: The client approached us to assist with these roles as they were looking for candidates with niche skillsets
Process: For the Healthcare Compliance Specialist role, we required someone with a strong legal background and over 6 years’ experience in the healthcare sector. As for the Key Account Manager role, the client required someone with an impressive track record of sales and experience in specific Therapeutic areas.

The Healthcare role was filled within 4 weeks and the Key Account Manager role took two and a half months because the hiring manager left the organisation during the recruitment process. The client subsequently entrusted Michael Page with the recruitment of 13 more roles.
