Title: Presents from our sales team
What’s at the top of your Christmas wish-list? A sleek and shiny new device? Novelty socks? How about an exciting new job instead? Our sales team have some fabulous roles to offer, and if you’re quick you could secure one before Christmas, in time for our March intake.
But before we tell you about the sales positions, it’s important that we share our core belief.
We believe that happy employees make happy customers. With an employee engagement rating of 96% and a customer satisfaction level of 99%, we firmly believe the former drives the latter. Our title of the UK's Best Workplace is testament to just how seriously we take this.
“High trust and engagement run through the DNA of this company and to ensure we don’t compromise on that, and for us to grow as an organisation, we have to attract the right talent at the outset.”
Martin Hellawell, Softcat CEO
The most obvious way to attract the right people is to offer them a great package. So, as you’d imagine, we offer our sales people a competitive basic salary plus an uncapped commission structure. Put simply, you decide how much money you make, and we’ll do everything we can to help you make it.
Helping you succeed
We begin with a six-month introduction programme. This starts with three weeks in the classroom, at the end of which you’ll be assigned a mentor. You’ll then go on to receive weekly training sessions and fortnightly one-to-one assessments. Over the course of the following 18 months, we offer three further advanced sales skills programmes.
We do not use scripts; we see the act of selling as an art in itself. An art that requires nurturing and dedication; as do our sales people. We get a real kick from watching home-grown talent progress, and always try to promote from within the company. For example, the Sales Manager of our Leeds office went from complete beginner to her current position in just five years.
We employ close to a thousand people, but it’s our family feel that keeps our people with us. We don’t do office politics, and we always make a point of listening to our teams to hear how we can improve on our success.
A little added sparkle
Our incentives go way beyond average too. Twice a year we take our most successful employees on an all-expenses paid trip to some of the most exciting destinations on the planet. In the last few years we’ve been to the Galapagos, Antarctica, Hawaii, Lapland and Kenya. We’ve gone road-tripping through the USA and made a Bollywood movie in Mumbai. Our most recent trip was to Bangkok, Koh Samui and Macau.
Other perks range from a free ironing service to quarterly lunches at restaurants like Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons. All our offices have X-Boxes and our Manchester location has its very own Tiki bar (yes, our other offices are suitably jealous!).
Our socials are legendary; we’ve had pool parties, Rio Carnival parties, boat parties, and we’ve even taken over Harry Potter World for the night.
