Softcat expands with 36 new recruits


Softcat has welcomed 36 new recruits to its sales and IT teams in London, Manchester and Marlow.

25 new starts will join the Marlow team as sales executives, sales support executives, and customer service executives, in addition to more specific roles in particular sectors. Five new starts will join the Manchester team, and six will join the London team, all as sales executives.

Softcat managing director Colin Brown believes happy employees lead to happy customers and high performance: “We pride ourselves on the calibre of our employees. We only hire the best of the best, and then we train them up to meet our high standards. We strive to create a happy, stimulating and rewarding workplace for them, which has led to exceedingly low attrition rates.”

Adds HR and recruitment manager Shelley Ferrigno: “Progression is here for the taking at Softcat; employees are constantly moving into new roles in areas of particular interest to them. An employee might join us as a customer service executive, spend some time in sales, then end up in a more technical role. We aim to accommodate our employees’ interests, and always reward hard work.”

Softcat recently achieved 10th best medium-sized workplace in Europe in the Europe’s Best Workplace listing, and 4th place in the UK.
