How and Why You Should Apply


Graduate Account Executive Leeds

  • Starting salary of £18,000 - £20,000 + commission
  • Amazing package of benefits and perks

What you will be doing

We’ve developed a winning formula for business success, based on happy, motivated employees delivering outstanding customer service. As we continue to grow we need talented, bright and ambitious people to join our training programme.

You’ll learn from some of the very best Account Managers in the industry and benefit from our highly respected training programme.

Alongside your training you’ll be involved in the below:

  • You will research potential customers to drive new business
  • You will be responsible for new business development; cold calling; email marketing
  • You will achieve KPIs, call targets, and revenue targets
  • You will book, organise and host customer meetings and technology days
  • You will be responsible for account management; quotations; regular customer contact; understanding strategy leading to project-based work.

What you will have

You don’t need to be a technical genius, though we’ll expect you to be a very quick learner, highly organised, and able to keep up with new and emerging technologies.

Most importantly, you’ll be a clear and persuasive communicator, able to quickly build rapport with new customers and represent Softcat positively, so they’ll love our company as much as we know you will.

You will also need to be able to build strong internal relationships with colleagues and product specialists.

We were awarded the No.1 Best Place to Work in the UK 2016, and we’re also in the Top Ten Best Places to Work in Europe. We have a uniquely motivating working culture and invest in our people every single day, and many have gone on to develop amazingly successful careers.

So if you're an ambitious graduate with at least a 2:1, or perhaps an employee in retail or customer services looking for a genuine kick-start to your sales career, we want to hear from you.

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

Our culture is completely unique. It’s a work-hard, play-hard environment where you can be the best you can be.

We embrace a forward-thinking approach to employee satisfaction; 98% of our employees responded very positively when rating us as an employer recently. We understand that happy employees are the secret to happy customers. This is why we were named the UK's Official Best Workplace this year and ranked in the Best Places to Work in Europe Top Ten for four years in a row.

We’re 110% committed to helping you progress. You'll learn from the very best in the industry. In fact, 80% of our management team started a grads.

We also know we’re nothing without you. We will reward and inspire you – every single day. This translates into 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 - that’s what happens when you hire hundreds of grads every year.

We’re a family (all 850 of us) and you’ll make lifelong friends here. From Go-Karting to fancy dress, you’ll never find a career that’s this much fun.

Once you go Softcat, you never go back…

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.

Our Future - Where we're going

Why Graduates Are Key to Our Future


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.
