Softcat Limited was established in 1993 by Peter Kelly, an entrepreneur who believes in the ethos of ‘work hard play hard’. With his business ethics and understanding of how to support his staff, he has created the unique culture that is Softcat today.
Softcat aims to be the leading quality provider of software licensing, hardware, security solutions and associated IT services to the corporate sector.
Our mission is simple: “to demonstrate unrivalled levels of customer service and employee satisfaction.”
Voted 3rd Best Company to work for by The Sunday Times, an achievement received as a result of what our employee’s have to say about their career prospects, salary, rewards, recognition and the leaders of the organisation.
Within a sales role everyone knows the focus is the commission payments at the end of each month. But what about a little extra reward too…… Trips to places like Fiji, Rio and the Galapagos Islands are just some of the destinations that are in store for someone with the right drive and determination.
New sales employees can expect to earn on average: £30k OTE in year 1, 40k in year 2 and a staggering 80k in year 3! At Softcat we have in place one of the best commission structures within the IT industry, where you truly are rewarded for your efforts.
Contribution payments to your student loan, healthcare, Denplan and a company contributor pension are all our standard perks but with the added bonus of tea and toast delivered to your desk, a shirt ironing service and a whole host of parties for you to enjoy.
The Training and Development manager is there to support you from day 1! A structured training programme already in place to ensure you are given the best start for a successful career with us. Future managers play a big part in your induction so you can later assess which sales team you would like to join.
At Softcat your career path is down to you, we just provide all the tools to get you there!
Assessors are looking for people who can demonstrate:
The will to succeed
Passion to excel
Employee profile: Lynette Wilkins
Deputy Sales Team Leader
Since I graduated from Nottingham Trent University with a 2:1 BA in Business Economics in June 2004 I wasn’t really sure what I wanted to do. After seeing the job advert for Softcat in a local paper I decided to apply. I wasn’t sure I wanted to go into a sales role but after attending an assessment day I knew it was somewhere I wanted to work. Everyone was so friendly and helpful and it’s a place where working hard gives great rewards with good commission and loads of incentives.
Having very little IT knowledge was not a problem when I started as we had a couple of weeks of intense training on everything you needed to know. Once you join a team you have plenty of support and direction in how to be successful at Softcat.
If Softcat sounds like a company you could excel in, hit apply now to send us your CV. We look forward to hearing from you!
