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 Public Sector 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.
As a Public Sector Sales Executive you’ll be targeted on securing new business within Public Sector 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.
You will begin your career on our Public Sector Development Programme. This is a dedicated training programme designed to get you up to speed on exactly how to sell to Public Sector organisations. You will initially be selling to our Schools and Colleges accounts whilst you learn the ropes and when you are ready (6-18 months dependant on achievement) you will join a vertical team of your choice (Higher Education, Local Government, Police, MOD, Healthcare etc). Here you will begin managing fewer and larger accounts and become an expert in your area!
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
All our sales roles offer high earnings potential, thanks to the uncapped commission structure. Many of the team are earning £60k OTE inside 3 years. There are fantastic incentives too - including trips all over the world.
Other benefits include 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.
