We’re a UK-based CRM and eCommerce company, run by its founder, supported by a strong international management team, and financially backed by Maven Capital Partners. We create, develop and deliver our SaaS platform, Prospect, to more than 5,000 SME users worldwide.
Prospect is perfect for businesses who sell physical products from stock B2B. As the official “Stock-Aware CRM”, Prospect offers native integration to leading accounting and inventory management systems like Unleashed and Xero.
What we do is possible because of the expertise and experience of our team, who strive to deliver the best possible solutions and customer service. We’re proud that 63% of our company is made up of current and returning placements - 1 previous placement is now a Director, and 5 are now in management positions. We’re also the most prolific winner of “Best SME Undergraduate Employer” at the NUE Awards, having won it for the 7th time in 2019! We know that we’re only as good as our people, which is why we invest heavily in recruiting, training and developing amazing people!
The placement scheme started in 2003, when we were approached by a student studying Computer Science at Aston University who needed a year in industry in order to complete his degree. Since then, the scheme has progressed significantly, and we’re really proud of it. The scheme is an integral part of ProspectSoft's philosophy and recruitment drive, where placements have a noticeable impact on the company. Placements are given high levels of responsibility, and the chance to have a real influence in their roles, through having the opportunity to lead projects independently from start to finish.
Right from the beginning, our senior staff have put a huge amount of effort into the scheme, from designing interviews and assessment days, to mentoring and training throughout the year. Our directors always reinforce how important the placement scheme is, and therefore continue to review and refine it each year. They’ve even been approached by other companies for advice on how to run placement schemes.
The timeline below outlines some of the amazing recognition that our placement scheme has achieved on a national scale over the past 13 years at ProspectSoft. Every year, our placements enjoy reviewing what previous placements did during their year to see how they can make the most out of their year.
