Our wonderful employees and Love2Give network have come together to raise over £4500 for Children in Need 2023 💛 BBC’s SPOTacular campaign aims to raise money for children across the UK who are experiencing various difficulties and is built on the belief that every child deserves a positive childhood. This year, we’re shining the spotlight on our Bristol office and the fundraising activities organised by our Love2Give network. Highlights included: 👗 Fancy dress, with #Barbenheimer being the theme of the day. 🎾 Team building activities such as competitive table tennis and pool tournaments. 🍰 A charity bake sale, which consisted of many tasty homemade treats. We may have uncovered a few secret bakers in the office! In addition to this, we hosted the semi-final of Softcat’s take on Mastermind which saw 16 employees across the business battle it out to reach the live final. Who will win this annual competition and take home the title of ‘Office Champion’?! 🏆 We want to say a massive thank you to our Love2Give network and employees for contributing to such a great cause. #ChildrenInNeed #CharityNetwork #Love2Give


Last week our Marlow office opened its doors to a group of talented young minds for a special event - Bring Your Child to Work Day. Themed "Workplace of the Future," this day was all about inspiring the next generation, and children aged between 7 and 12 joined their ‘Softcat Seniors’ for a peek into the world of 21st-century work. 👩‍💼👨‍💼 The day kicked off with a warm welcome (and snacks of course!) before our little guests got stuck into various activities designed to spark creativity and imagination, including; 🤖 Robot Challenge 👕T Shirt Design Competition 🔮 Softcat of the Future planning But the real magic happened when they engaged with our fantastic employees, asking questions and gaining insights into their job roles and experiences. We were blown away by the teamwork, problem-solving skills, enthusiasm and inquisitiveness of our future leaders and hope the day played a small part in igniting a spark of curiosity in the hearts of our youngest Softcat enthusiasts. Thanks to Employees Matter for your support in facilitating this brilliant initiative! We're committed to nurturing this passion for learning and innovation, and as a business, we definitely plan to host more exciting events like this in the future! #SoftcatFamily #FutureOfWork #InspiringYoungMinds #Softcat #KidsinTech

Account Manager

Hi there, I have been an Account Manager for Softcat (UK's largest IT reseller) for 3 years and consistently hitting targets and earning 70k currently. I feel slightly de-motivated currently due to repetition and my base salary is only 32k and looking to find somewhere with good commission and a much better base salary to try and purchase a house. Any ideas on how to progress please?

    Business Outlook


    I worked at Softcat for over 3 years and during my time I always found it to be a great company to work for. Birmingham Softcat is fun and dynamic and the sales teams I worked with certainly were too. The partners thought our office had a great buzz and character to it, with a fantastic team who all know each other. I really enjoyed working at Softcat, some of the other pros: competitive base salary in the VARs, travel/work elsewhere like Manchester/Bristol/Marlow etc, fun team nights and vendor days, opportunities to change roles, friendly and professional team members.


    My only con was the increase in salary Year to year.

      There were several stages, one was with a panel of team leaders. This was more of a cultural chat to see which team you would best fit. Be hungry, money motivated and excited to learn.
