We’re a UK-based CRM & 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 CRM, to more than 5,000 SME users worldwide.

Prospect is the #1 Stock-Aware CRM for Wholesalers, Distributors & Manufacturers who sell products from stock B2B. Prospect offers native integration to leading back-office Accounting and Inventory Management Systems, including Unleashed, Xero, QuickBooks Commerce, DEAR Inventory, Cin7 and Sage 50.

We invest heavily in recruiting, training and developing amazing people, and are proud to be the most awarded SME in the UK for its placement programme! Over 65% of our workforce is made up of previous and current placements – with 4 now in managerial positions! Our Directors have even been approached by other companies for advice on how to run placement schemes.


History

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.

SMEs for the Win!

Providing you with an instant sense of belonging, working for ProspectSoft offers you a working environment like no other. Being able to build relationships and work closely with senior Managers and Directors provides you with all the opportunities and skills you need to fly high in the real world.

Enhanced Employment Prospects

A placement with us will give you an excellent foundation knowledge and insight into the sector you’re working in and awareness of the working world. This will help you excel in your professional development, as well as enhance your employability skills.

Personal Development

Managers and Directors at ProspectSoft want you get the most out of your placement. Throughout your year, you’ll be working alongside industry experts who’ll guide and support you along your placement journey. Plus, they’ll encourage you to work on other side projects to boost your CV, like passing online certifications!

Real Responsibility

You don’t have to worry about being the placement that gets stuck doing the coffee run! Right from the get-go, you’re given real responsibility and are treated just like our permanent team members. You’re given tasks that influence the business’ reputation, success and growth, and your input is hugely valued and appreciated.

Unique Office Atmosphere

The friendly, young and energetic atmosphere here at ProspectSoft is something we feel makes us unique! We’re a supportive company that treasures every single employee. We’re a sociable bunch too that know how to have a great time both in the office, and outside the walls of work! Our Social Committee ensures there’s plenty of events going on throughout the year to provide all sorts of perks for our lovely employees.

Pizza Fridays & Beer Fridays

Who doesn’t love pizza? The last Friday of every month combines food and learning! Bringing the whole company together, we learn about the exciting features our Development team have been working on recently in the software, and simultaneously get to indulge in endless amounts of Domino’s pizza! Plus, every Friday, ProspectSoft finish work half an hour early to crack open the beer fridge and socialise. Employees can kick-start their Fridays and choose a refreshing alcoholic or soft beverage they fancy, to sit back, relax and enjoy! We also love a good quiz!

Departmental Socials

Each department often heads out for different socials after work. Whether it’s a curry night or getting involved in a sport such as trampolining or rock-climbing, every department loves to bring their teams together for a good laugh and sociable catch up! But socials don’t have to be set to individual departments; we like to mix! If the Dev team head out trampolining and the Marketing team fancy joining, then they’re always welcome – the more the merrier!

Company Events

ProspectSoft love to host a sunny BBQ, attend the Henley Royal Regatta, or organise afterwork drinks in the sunshine. Whatever they choose to do, ProspectSoft love a sociable get together!
