 For ambitious school leavers, a Softcat Apprenticeship is a great first step into the world of work. You earn, learn and gain qualifications while starting out on a structured career. Our award-winning scheme has set many Softcatters on the path to success.

Success. The Softcat way.

There’s a uniqueness to Softcat – what we do, how we do it and why we do it. That’s because we’re a technology solutions business built around our people. We give everyone the chance to step up and show how much they can achieve. We succeed when all our people succeed.

Your role

Softcat is a phenomenally energetic and successful organisation that sells unique IT solutions to our customers from a large product portfolio belonging to our Vendor Partners (Apple, Microsoft, HPE etc). Reporting to the vendor marketing manager, you will be functioning as part of a busy marketing team, supporting our vendor partners in promoting their sales opportunity and ensuring that marketing communications are as effective as possible. Some of your responsibilities will include; supporting our vendors with their marketing communications and events, adding to and maintaining our website content whilst liaising with internal and external copywriters to ensure the content is in line with our tone of voice, supporting with video and photo requirements and much more.  You will need to be creative, a quick learner, be willing to get hands on when necessary – especially in support of key largescale events, have excellent written and verbal communication skills, and be willing to voice your opinion and ideas in an environment where collaborative working is essential and every suggestion has value.

What we need from you

  • Experience of Microsoft Office packages, especially Word and Powerpoint
  • Experience of, or desire and ability to learn, the Adobe Cloud suite of products – particularly Photoshop and Illustrator
  • A good level of literacy with the ability to communicate clearly, both verbally and in written form
  • Commitment to self-development and an interest in broadening horizons through work
  • A positive, proactive attitude, ability to work calmly and efficiently under pressure


We offer a good salary and benefits package including a pension scheme, life assurance, healthcare cash plan and access to Perklife, our dedicated portal for all things perks and benefits at Softcat. It’s designed to give you the flexibility and choice to suit your lifestyle and needs - there really is something for everyone. So whether it’s activity passes or technology discount vouchers you’re after, or you would prefer to buy extra holiday for yourself, or add your partner or family to some of the benefits… it’s entirely up to you. We’ll even give you an extra day’s holiday on top of your usual entitlement on your birthday.
