In 2020, our apprentice programme was recognised as the #1 scheme in the UK by Rate My Apprenticeship. It was also a great honour for the company to come in at #5 in both the Great Places to Work and Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Awards. And, if that wasn’t enough, in 2021 Graeme Watt has been ranked at #3 in the UK’s Top CEOs. We have our employees – past and present – to thank for anonymously sharing their Softcat experiences.
