Sales Executive


Report to: Sales Team Leader


Location: UK Wide - Marlow, London, South Coast, Bristol, Manchester, Leeds, Glasgow and South Dublin (new office)


Average earning potential; Year 1 - £25,000- £32,000, Year 2 - £40,000, Year 3 - £60,000 (and upwards)


Your Role


Join Softcat as one of our Sales Executives. If you're intelligent, hardworking and driven we would love to hear from you.


As a Sales Executive you'll be targeted on securing new business with organisations across the UK, selling IT solutions on behalf of our partners (Microsoft, HPE, Cisco, Dell to name a few). The role is a balancing act, ensuring you provide top class customer service as well as achieving your financial objectives. As you become established in the role you'll inevitably spend less time on building new business and instead focus on really enhancing those existing relationships you've built, selling more products into less clients. It truly feels like running your own business, where you get to control how much you earn and how you want to develop.


We have a number of different areas where we place our Sales Execs, see below:


Corporate (e.g. Small-Medium Business and Enterprise)


Public Sector (e.g. NHS, Schools, Universities)


Sales Specialist (where you'll focus on selling specific areas of technology; e.g. Datacentre, Workplace, Network and Security)


Key Responsibilities


Researching potential customers to drive new business


New business development; cold calling; email marketing


Achieving KPI's, call targets, and revenue targets


Booking, organising and hosting customer meetings and technology days


Account management; quotations; regular customer contact; understanding strategy leading to project-based work


What we need from you


Previous sales or customer facing experience would be an advantage but not essential


Passionate, fun and have the entrepreneurial flare to build your own client base from scratch


Self Starter, Quick Learner and Highly organised


Keen to learn about new and emerging technologies


Clear and persuasive communicator


Ability to build rapport with potential new clients as well as strong relationships internally


And what's in it for you?


Uncapped earning potential


Clear progression plan, sales and management focused


Autonomy to manage your own workload


2 weeks of bespoke and focussed training when you join


Ongoing training on technologies and trends


Half and full yearly trips to places like Barbados, Miami, Argentina to name a few


Free Breakfast


Birthday treats - ½ day off and free lunch on Softcat


Childcare Vouchers and much more…
