fast track 20 graduate career


Formed in 2001, Vohkus is already a “top 50” UK Technology company, with 125 employees and annual turnover approaching £70m. We firmly believe that people are our #1 asset - It is the quality, and attitude, of our people that has delivered our impressive growth to date.
Vohkus provides IT solutions and services to businesses in the UK with 20-20,000+ employees. We work in partnership with leading manufacturers such as HP, Cisco and Dell, as well as cloud providers such as Microsoft, Google, Vodafone and Amazon.
We are completing our annual intake for Fast Track 20 - An industry leading training initiative, developed to identify the future sales stars of the IT industry. The 20 month accelerated programme equips successful candidates with the knowledge and skills required to deliver outstanding sales success.

The Company

Headquartered in Southampton, we deliver IT solutions to both private and public sector clients, many of whom operate across the globe.
Whilst our sales floor can be very intense and demanding, we feel that it is within our hungry, ambitious and hard working environment that our people thrive, delivering the success that has led us to be the youngest reseller in the UK Top 50 Value Added Resellers.
Our experienced sales people earn £70k+ OTE per annum, and so could you, but please only apply if you are prepared to work hard in a fast-paced and demanding environment.

The Role

Do you have a healthy interest in technology and want an opportunity to break into the IT industry?
Are you ambitious and willing to work hard enough to earn £70k+ OTE per annum?
Are you comfortable using the telephone, and prepared to make “cold calls” as part of your role to build up your client base?
Are you capable of providing excellent customer service?
If you have the right qualities, we can develop you into one of our future Major Account Managers. Our 20-month programme will begin with one month of intensive training, providing you with the tools required to begin building your own customer base from leads which we will provide you with.
With us, you will have the opportunity to sell IT Solutions to some of the most recognised and prestigious companies, both UK wide and internationally.
After your first month of training you’ll start your journey within the heart of the Vohkus sales team. You’ll be mentored by a dedicated Vohkus sales manager, and we will regularly review your progress to ensure you successfully grow into a Major Account manager role within 20 months, possibly sooner if you are a real high flyer!

Who we are looking for

Whilst Fast Track 20 aims to teach individuals the fundamentals of sales and account management, it is only with the right attitude that you’ll be successful. We’re looking for candidates with:
A hard-working, hungry and ambitious mind-set
A competitive desire to win
Excellent communication and relationship building skills - Both over the phone and face to face
The ability to learn fast, and to work productively and competently unsupervised, as well as working effectively in a team
Qualifications at A-level (or equivalent) upwards
Sales experience will be helpful but is not required


We have opportunities for candidates to join us at our Vohkus HQ in Southampton from early September and further opportunities in our prestigious London City office in October – please specify your preferred location in your application
