Ready to make the most of your potential? Softcat is the perfect place to start out. We have a proud track record of training Apprentices, and then watching them follow successful careers with us. Whatever your talents, there could be an opportunity for you here – our main intake is Sales, but there are Technology and Business Operations opportunities too.
You will start earning from day one on all our Apprentice Programmes. You’ll also be tasked with a variety of exciting challenges, with plenty of guidance on hand from experienced colleagues. Week by week, you’ll gain the knowledge, soft skills and confidence it takes to thrive.
WHAT WE LOOK FOR

- Hold at least one A-level or five GCSEs (including English & Maths) at C Grade or above
- Be a genuine person who is positive and has an enthusiastic approach to your work
- Ambitious, organised and hard-working
- A keen interest in technology is a plus – but don’t worry if you’re no specialist. We can fill in the gaps for you!

The phone interview is quick and straightforward (no need to be nervous). Impress us, and we’ll invite you to come and meet us.
This is where you’ll meet our recruitment team and Apprentice Managers. You’ll get to show us that you are committed, eager to learn, and ready to work hard.
INTERVIEW WITH AN APPRENTICE MANAGER
