Passion. Intelligence. Fun. Responsible; these are the core values which define Softcat. We are one of the UK’s leading IT infrastructure providers and a FTSE 250 listed company. The business is based on two key principles: outstanding customer service and employee satisfaction- both of which inspire our flexible, friendly approach to business. See website for more information about Softcat

As a Sales Executive you’ll be targeted on securing new business with organisations across Ireland, 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:

  • 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)
