Salary of a medical representative in Kenya


The salary of a medical representative in Kenya varies depending on the company they work for, their experience, and their location. However, medical representatives typically earn a good salary and receive a variety of benefits, such as health insurance, travel allowance, and retirement plans.

According to Glassdoor, the average salary for a medical representative in Nairobi, Kenya is KES 175,000 per year. The salary sounds too little and not actual because most companies start their salaries from Kshs 30,000 per month.

Of course, there are several benefits that come with being a medical representative such as creating networks with doctors and other healthcare professionals, and a travel allowance depending on your client's appointment lists.

Don't get worked up because the salary sounds little to survive in Kenya. In fact, Kshs 30,000 is adequate amount for entry level job and can cater for your monthly needs. 

The salaries can rise steadily from Kshs 30,000, or KES 50,000 to KES 300,000 or more, depending on the factors of experience, sales, and company, or territory of operation.


It's worth noting that the salaries are not fixed since experience in the industry, region, and other factors can help you earn more than other medical representatives. Here are some of the factors that can affect the salary of a medical representative in Kenya:


  • Company: The size and reputation of the company can affect the salary of a medical representative. Larger companies with a strong reputation typically pay higher salaries.
  • Experience: Medical representatives with more experience typically earn higher salaries.
  • Location: The cost of living in the area where the medical representative works can also affect their salary. Medical representatives who work in urban areas typically earn higher salaries than those who work in rural areas.
  • Sales performance: Medical representatives who meet or exceed their sales goals typically earn higher salaries.
  • Commissions: Medical representatives may also earn commissions on their sales. This can significantly increase their salary.
