Graduate Sales Executive - Leeds

Job description

Join Softcat as one of our Sales Executives. If you’re intelligent, hardworking and driven we would love to hear from you.

As a Sales Executive you’ll be targeted on securing new business with organisations across Ireland, 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.

We have a number of different areas where we place our Sales Execs, see below:

  • Corporate (e.g. small-medium business and enterprise)
  • Public Sector (e.g. NHS, schools, universities)
  • Sales Specialist (where you’ll focus on selling specific areas of technology; e.g. datacentre, workplace, network and security)

What you'll be doing

  • 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

And what’s in it for you?

  • Uncapped earning potential
  • Clear progression plan, sales and management focused
  • Autonomy to manage your own workload
  • Two weeks of bespoke and focussed training when you join
  • Ongoing training on technologies and trends
  • Half and full yearly trips to places like Barbados, Miami, Argentina to name a few
  • Free breakfast
  • Birthday treats – half day off and free lunch on Softcat
  • Childcare vouchers and much more

What we are looking for

  • 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 kearner 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
