Job description

This exciting role is to work within the Specialist Sales team here at Softcat. The Specialist team are responsible for providing consultancy and support to our customers and Sales teams. This is provided around a range of technology-based solutions, including Networking and Security and Datacentre. The key focus of this team is to keep abreast of what’s happening in the specific technology areas they are aligned to. This means they can understand how this may impact our customers, and how best we can deliver value.

Softcat sales opportunities come with big earnings potential (£60k average OTE by year 3) and a structured progression path. Plus, you don’t need specific qualifications or experience to join us! We can help you reach your goals if you bring us the ambition to succeed.

Success. The Softcat Way.

Softcat is a billion-pound technology company that feels like one family. We're big on culture, big on teamwork and big on rewards. Through collaboration and understanding, we help customers to use technology to succeed, by putting our employees first. Welcome to a business where personal achievement and team success go hand-in-hand.

Partner with the best

We are offering opportunities to join the Specialist team either in Networking and Security or Datacentre. Both of which don't require previous knowledge or experience in the sector. We are looking for someone that has a thirst to learn and will enjoy focusing on a specific aspect of technology.

  • Providing specialist technology insight that will help your customers buy the right technology that solves their business challenges
  • Collaborating with your sales team, cross-functional teams, and external partners to help develop a rich customer experience

We recognise that everyone is different and that the way in which people want to work and deliver at their best is different for everyone too. In this role, we can offer the following flexible working patterns:

  • Occasional home working possible
  • Working flexible hours - flexing the times you start and finish during the day
  • Flexibility around school pick up and drop offs

Working with us

Wherever you work, we want you to experience the freedom and autonomy to realise your potential. You will feel supported by a team that celebrates individuality, encourages different perspectives, and embraces every background.

Rewards

We offer a competitive salary and benefits package and will provide you with opportunities to grow, flourish, and achieve great things. Our benefits include:

  • Max employer pension contributions of 5%
  • Share incentive plan
  • Life assurance
  • Healthcare
