I have been working at Softcat full-time (More than 3 years)
The opportunity for personal growth and success is seemingly boundless.
The culture and people are brilliant, so even on hard days you will enjoy where you work. Within a sales-based role, the job gives you immense experience within the first few years, both internally & externally through exposure to other UK businesses e.g. your customers. Getting to work closely with outside organisations through the role gives great insight into how other companies work, so is great exposure for personal development. Also the longer you go on the bigger and more complex the organisations you work with become, and therefore this type of experience can really set you up for success in your career. There is a lot of opportunity for progression such as management, up until a certain stage. Company on the whole is also going from strength to strength so it's gone from a brilliant place to work, to also one of the best and biggest partners in the market.
Base salary is low in sales, particularly for management positions, however you know this going on due to the opportunity within the role.
Advice to Management
Thus far Softcat growing to it's current size has successfully kept the culture, and the personality. Don't ever let this change as we don't want to become soulless just because we're now really big. Keep it going!
I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Softcat (London, England) in February 2020.
Booked straight onto assessmen centre from recruiter. Only thing had to do before was a personality triat test. Assessment centre had a presentation, quick fire sales game/task, fact finder.
