About ProspectSoft

Founded in 2000, ProspectSoft is a family-owned UK business operating in the business-to-business sector, delivering software to thousands of users across the UK, Republic of Ireland and worldwide. ProspectSoft identified a need for CRM and eCommerce solutions that integrated with accounting systems to help bring business information together. Our software eliminates the need to re-key data, improves lead follow-up and order taking, resulting in improvements in customer intelligence and overall efficiency. ProspectSoft has since expanded into hosted solutions, mobile development, and eMail Marketing with a focus on database solutions and bespoke software, all of which continue to keep them at the forefront of accounts integration.

ProspectSoft has been repeatedly recognised as a leading employer on a national scale and has consequently won the award for ‘Best SME Placement Provider’ an incredible 4 times. ProspectSoft has also won awards from the National Council of Work Experience and appeared in newspapers such as ‘The Times’ and 'The Guardian' promoting placement schemes. We know that any business is only as good as its people, which is why we employ the very best placement students, so that our clients receive the very best service.

Our students are integral members of our company, and each year we invest heavily in recruiting, training and developing our placements and see 51% of placements return as full time employees. Our workforce has in fact increased by more than 300% and that is mainly through the re-employment of placement students following graduation. The progression of the scheme is amazing and we are really proud of it. We have found it to be essential to the continuing growth of the driven, young and sociable team we are today.

The scheme provides a chance to learn and develop in a controlled environment which can be tailored to suit your own personal skills and interests. This will equip you with invaluable experiences to take back to university and for the future. Your initial month is packed with training from our internal experts so you are well prepared before entering your roles. As well as lots of formal training, you’ll also learn lots from your teammates due to our really friendly and supportive culture. In addition to this, working for a small to medium sized enterprise means you have the opportunity to work directly alongside senior managers and directors. This provides opportunities to gain advice and learn skills from experienced staff, making it the perfect environment for a placement to thrive - one previous Placement Student is now even a Director!

Overall, placement students truly have a noticeable place at ProspectSoft, with lots of responsibility and the chance to have a real influence in their roles. Our directors are always reinforcing how important the placement scheme is and therefore continue to review and refine the scheme each year. They have even been approached by other companies for advice on how to run placement schemes. So, if you are looking to hit the ground running and get lots of experience developing a variety of key skills in a dynamic, fun environment, then this could be the company for you.
