Job description

At Softcat we’ve developed a winning formula for business success, based on happy, motivated employees delivering outstanding customer service. As we continue to grow we need talented, bright and ambitious people to join our Account Executive training programme.

We’re one of the UK’s leading and fastest-growing providers of IT services, and every day our teams work with thousands of customers across the country. Our culture is definitely “work hard play hard” as we prove that a fulfilled and motivated workforce makes for very satisfied customers.

As an Account Executive you’ll learn from some of the very best Account Managers in the industry and benefit from our highly respected training programme. We’ll reward you with a healthy basic salary, uncapped commission, an amazing package of benefits and perks, and plenty of opportunities for promotion and career progression.

So what will you be doing?

Alongside your training you’ll be involved in:

  • Researching potential customers to drive new business
  • New business development; cold calling; email marketing
  • Achieving KPI’s, call targets, and revenue targets
  • Booking, organising and hosting customer meetings and technology days
  • Account management; quotations; regular customer contact; understanding strategy leading to project-based work.

So if you're an ambitious graduate with at least a 2:1, or perhaps an employee in retail or customer services looking for a genuine kick-start to your sales career, we want to hear from you.

Company information

We were awarded the No.1 Best Place to Work in the UK 2016, and we’re also in the Top Ten Best Places to Work in Europe. We have a uniquely motivating working culture and invest in our people every single day, and many have gone on to develop amazingly successful careers.

Person requirements

You don’t need to be a technical genius, though we’ll expect you to be a very quick learner, highly organised, and able to keep up with new and emerging technologies.

Most importantly, you’ll be a clear and persuasive communicator, able to quickly build rapport with new customers and represent Softcat positively, so they’ll love our company as much as we know you will! You will also need to build strong internal relationships with colleagues and product specialists.
