Vohkus – Why Work With Us?


Vohkus overview

Vohkus a UK top 40 reseller and consultancy that’s shaking up the IT channel with bright ideas and a solid track record of delivery. We help ambitious businesses reduce risks when selecting, procuring, deploying and managing business IT.

We maximise value and strip out cost from strategic infrastructure investments – including disruptive technologies – through rigorous technical and commercial validation. And we help organisations reach their business objectives, drive better efficiencies and achieve tangible cost savings through a technology-agnostic approach that helps them select the best solutions for their needs.

We have in-depth knowledge of our partners and their products, from cloud to data centre and from workspace to networks. We’re a top tier partner of global IT firms, working with companies like Microsoft, HPE, Dell EMC, Cisco, BT, Vodafone and many more. We consult, supply, deploy, support and manage solutions for and with them.

Internally and with our customers and partners we’ve built a reputation for being trustworthy and responsible, but also flexible and fun. Our customers tell us we’re always there when they need us, and this collaborative team spirit is reflected internally. Our people love working for us, and they’re trained and encouraged to develop their skills to build solid, fulfilling careers.

The Vohkus family

Vohkus provides real opportunities to develop and grow your career in a supportive atmosphere, and a bright future awaits those we select because of our ‘results together, rewards together’ culture.

Our people liken working at Vohkus to being part of a family. We’re big enough to carry clout in the industry, but small enough to know each other as individuals. We work hard and play hard together, and put in the time, money and effort to grow our own people. We enjoy recognising their achievements and promoting them, and most of our senior managers started out as junior members of staff.

About us

Vohkus was established in 2001 to break the constraints of the traditional reseller model. We’re 100% independently-owned, with a solid and stable financial base.

When the only constant is change, staying ahead in business is a non-stop business. Our strategic focus on technology and service delivery that’s driven by customer business objectives truly sets us apart. We refer to this as our Technology Edge/Business Edge mantra.

As an agnostic, hands-on partner of leading global IT firms we have insight into vendor roadmaps, access to proof-of-concept facilities, depth of experience, and clear methodologies that help customers avoid the pitfalls of adapting to new technology.

Join the team

We're always interested in speaking to bright, energetic and motivated people.

With the aim to retain our reputation as not only an excellent employer, but the employer of choice in the industry, we operate two purpose-designed recuitment and development programmes – ‘CAREER TRACK 100’ and ‘FAST TRACK 20’ – that deliver compelling career path development, rewards, and recognition within the workplace.

    I have been working at Vohkus full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have never worked for a company that rewards as well as Vohkus do. Good basic pay with a great commission structure.
    The environment is fun, I am surrounded by people with the same morals and goals as I do. Great incentives, that both encourage a good customer relationship and a bit of healthy competition between colleagues. I feel fortunate to work for a great senior management team.

    Cons

    Definitely not a job for the lazy

    Advice to Management

    I appreciate the constant support
