If you’re looking to make the most of your energy, ambition and personality, then a sales career at Softcat could be perfect for you.  We’re currently recruiting for Sales Executives to join us.

Our opportunities come with big earnings potential (£60k a year, in year 3) and a structured progression path. Plus, you don’t need specific qualifications or experience to join us, or a techie background. We can help you reach your goals if you bring us the drive, commitment and talent.

Success. The Softcat way.

If you have the ambition and motivation – and you’re keen to learn about new technologies – the Softcat culture here will bring out the best in you. You’re encouraged to take responsibility for driving your own career progression. Ultimately the more you put in, the more you’ll get out; great performance is always recognised and rewarded. We call it success, the Softcat way.

Your Role

As a Sales Executive you’ll be targeted on securing new business with organisations across the UK, selling IT solutions on behalf of our partners (Microsoft, HPE, Cisco, Dell to name a few). The role is a balancing act, ensuring you provide top class customer service as well as achieving your financial objectives. As you become established in the role you’ll inevitably spend less time on building new business and instead focus on really enhancing those existing relationships you’ve built, selling more products into less clients. It truly feels like running your own business, where you get to control how much you earn and how you want to develop.  

What you need

  • Previous sales or customer facing experience would be an advantage but not essential
  • Interested to hear from Graduates looking for a role in sales
  • Passionate, fun and have the entrepreneurial flare to build your own client base from scratch
  • Self Starter, Quick Learner and Highly organised
  • Keen to learn about new and emerging technologies
  • Clear and persuasive communicator
  • Ability to build rapport with potential new clients as well as strong relationships internally

Rewards

The benefits include uncapped commission potential and fantastic incentives too (including trips all over the world), pension scheme, 22 days’ holiday (rising to 25 after a qualifying period) and a day off for your birthday, and health & dental care (after a qualifying period).
