Graduate Sales

It’s no use having world-class products and services if no one knows about them. That’s why we need world-class sales teams to make sure our customers understand what our technology is and how it can help them. As a graduate in our Sales stream, you’ll be part of a division that puts the customer at the centre, always listening to them. Our sales division comes up with customer focused sales strategies, builds solid client relationships and ensures people realise the many ways in which our products and services can make their lives better. Selling anything is a challenge. But when you’re selling technology that people can believe in – that you can believe in – it changes everything.

Our graduates are placed into real job roles from day one and, alongside this, they are enrolled into the Microsoft Academy, based in America, which provides two international training weeks during their first 18 to 24 months. These bring together a community of thousands of graduates from over 60 countries, enabling them to build a global network of contacts and to gain exposure to real Microsoft business activities.

We want personable, responsible individuals who embrace connecting with people, respect listening to others and enjoy sharing new ideas
