Personality. Passion. Ambition. If you’ve got these qualities, you can grow a successful sales career at Softcat (and earn some eye-catching rewards). You could be a recent graduate. You could already have experience after school, college or university. Do you need to be a techie type? Nope – we’ll give you all the training and support you’ll need.
Learn & Grow
Whether you’re a recent graduate or have some sales experience in another industry, you’ll join one of our development programmes which have been designed to accelerate competence and confidence within the sales role across our corporate, public sector, and specialist sales areas. The programmes focus on behaviours and provide support and structured training, with a clear route of progression across each division.
SALES DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME
As a corporate or public sector sales executive, you’ll follow a comprehensive training programme in your first 6-12 months which will develop your sales skills and technical understanding to deliver customer excellence as you kick start your Softcat sales career.
SPECIALIST ACCELERATION PROGRAMME
For our NetSec, DCC, and Workspace & Services specialists we have a similar programme in your first 6-12 months to help you understand why customers want specific technologies and build your expertise, ensuring you’re well equipped for your specialist sales career with Softcat.
Elevate takes you beyond your basic sales training, and challenges you to continue developing your skills. With a tailored programme tied to each level of the sales progression pathway, you’ll be equipped with the skills and knowledge you need to succeed long-term.
Alongside any of our structured training programmes, you’ll have the option to further develop through self-led eLearning, local office vendor training and sales seminars, and coaching to help you achieve your individual career goals.

Over 6 months, you’ll receive all the training you need to become a specialist in your field.
