Softcat profile

About Softcat

We’re incredibly proud that our apprentice programme has been voted the UK’s #1 by ‘RateMyApprenticeship’. It’s recognition that for ambitious school leavers, a Softcat Apprenticeship is a great first step into the world of work. You earn, learn and gain qualifications while starting out on a structured career. Our award-winning scheme has set many Softcatters on the path to success.

We are one of the UK’s leading providers of technology solutions and services to Corporate and Public Sector organisations. We help them to use technology to solve their business challenges, by putting our employees first. We are a trusted partner to names like Apple, Microsoft and Adobe, reselling their products and services in the form of tailored solutions into the business market.

You don’t need a techie background to join us; we just love to recruit hard workers with the ambition to achieve big things. Our key focus is recruiting Sales Apprentices; a great option if you’re a real people person, who’s target-driven and good on the phone. We also offer a smaller number of Business Administration Apprenticeships for a number of departments, as well as Technical Apprenticeships which will mostly be based in Marlow.

Your Apprenticeship will feature a structured programme of on-the-job learning, with lots of support and mentoring from colleagues. Once completed, you’ll hopefully follow in the footsteps of many previous Softcat Apprentices who have progressed into permanent positions across the business.

We’ve new processes and safety policies in place to protect your physical and mental wellbeing, and even in these unprecedented times with remote and socially-distanced working, we’re still one team with visible leadership and easy communication. There’s always lots going on virtually; something that provides a real sense of working together and succeeding together.

And whilst we take our business very seriously, we don’t take ourselves too seriously. Life at Softcat is about working hard with a smile on our faces. The culture is one that people enjoy being part of as shown by all our recent awards including being listed in the top 5 rankings for both ‘Great Places to Work’ and Glassdoor’s ‘Best Places to Work Employees Choice Awards’; all show our commitment to offering the best possible experience.
