  • Reading
  • £18,000 - £20,000

As their trainee, you’ll benefit from this drive to be the best, receiving all the tools and support needed to do an amazing job. However, hand-in-hand with their ambition comes a strong belief in saying thank you to staff and ensuring they have the time to unwind.

5. Softcat – New Business Account Executive

  • Marlow
  • £20,000 - £26,000
  • Deadline: 28 October 2017

It’s not necessarily what Softcat does that makes them stand out: it’s the environment they do it in. The nationwide IT solutions provider has developed an award-winning formula for success: happy employees, motivated to deliver world-class service. To achieve this, their extraordinary offices boast everything from big screen TVs to Tiki bars, while their training is designed to guarantee grads grow into leaders (over 80% of their managers started as trainees). Add to that the fact they take their best performers on holiday to far-flung places, such as Hawaii, Dubai and Antarctica, and it’s not hard to see why they took the lead as the ‘Official Best Workplace in the UK’ in 2016.
