Onwards to our company and culture…

We are Softcat

Not every company features a Tiki Bar, ping-pong table and big screen TV in the office, but our ethos to stay fun and quirky is precisely what makes us different.

Our Culture - What we do

We are one of the UK’s leading IT infrastructure providers and a FTSE 250 listed company. We’re passionate about outstanding employee satisfaction and world-class customer service - both of which inspire our flexible, friendly approach to business.

We embrace a forward-thinking approach to employee satisfaction, shown by the fact that 98% of our employees responded very positively when rating us as an employer. 

We understand that happy employees are the secret to happy customers: this is why we were named the UK's Official Best Workplace in 2016 and ranked in the Best Places to Work in Europe Top Ten for four years in a row.

You'll learn from the very best in the industry here - in fact, 80% of our management team started as grads.

We strive reward and inspire our graduates, with exceptional earnings (our top performers earn six figures) and outrageous incentive trips across the globe (seriously, we’ve taken people everywhere from Dubai to Antarctica and Hawaii).

Our social scene is phenomenal - but then that’s what happens when you hire hundreds of grads every year. We're a real family (all 850 of us) and you’ll make lifelong friends here. From Go-Karting to fancy dress, you’ll never find an office that’s this much fun.

Be yourself and allow us to get to know the real you.

Our Graduates - Who we are

Alastair's Graduate Story

I got to go to Croatia for a long weekend with Softcat, which was great fun. This year I've qualified to go to Dubai.

You don't feel like you're actually going to work every day... We all gel really well and it feels like you're working with friends.

Chris, Sales Manager

With offices across the country, we're the leading business to business provider of IT solutions in the UK.

We operate primarily within the corporate and public sectors, providing clients with software licensing, computing networking, security and more. Plus, we offer the services they require to design, implement and manage these solutions.

We have all the accreditation and awards that you would expect. But the thing that really makes us different is our people. We put a lot of time and effort into supporting, motivating and nurturing our employees, so they feel ready to go out and do the best job possible.

We don't plan on changing any time soon - we are doing very well and want graduates to come aboard and help this success continue. In return, it's our aim to carry on providing the best environment for our staff to work in: fun, rewarding and vibrant.
