Competitive plus benefits

Softcat is one of the UK’s leading technology solutions businesses. Thanks to the success and growth of our services, we offer an increasingly broad range of tech careers. There could be a bright future for you if you’re interested in software, networking, analytics or cyber security.


Success. The Softcat way.


Softcat is a £1billion+ technology solutions business and trusted partner to names like Apple, Microsoft and Adobe. Offering a growing portfolio of services including software licensing, cyber security and IT infrastructure, we give our technical teams the tools and support to make exciting things happen. This is where to achieve more for your career.


Your Role


As a Solutions Professional focusing on networking, you will work as a member of the Solutions Design department to translate a client’s business requirements into innovative, thoughtful and well-designed solutions, making use of the latest networking technology principals delivered either on premise or via a public or private cloud offering. The role requires demonstrating the skills of a subject matter expert, which means constantly striving to be at the top of your game in the latest networking technologies and methodologies. Although Networking should be your primary skillset, being able to demonstrate knowledge and understanding across the whole gamut of Solution Design (compute, storage, networking, backup, DR/BC, software, cloud, virtualisation, management and infrastructure) is a core part of the role. 


What we need from you


  • A proven background in presales and solutions design from your previous Subject Matter Expert role.
  • Experience of conducting customer meetings, whiteboarding and documenting solutions.
  • Experience of leading customer-facing technical workshops, and contributing to proposals and tender responses.
  • Ability to understand and ratify technical designs at high and low level.
  • A desire to share your knowledge and experience with those around you, particularly the younger members of the team.
  • Industry recognised qualifications or certifications consummate to the role (Cisco CCNP is preferred).




We offer a good salary and benefits package including a pension scheme, life assurance, healthcare cash plan and access to Perklife, our dedicated portal for all things perks and benefits at Softcat. It’s designed to give you the flexibility and choice to suit your lifestyle and needs - there really is something for everyone. So whether it’s activity passes or technology discount vouchers you’re after, or you would prefer to buy extra holiday for yourself, or add your partner or family to some of the benefits… it’s entirely up to you. We’ll even give you an extra day’s holiday on top of your usual entitlement on your birthday.
