Softcat is adding staff to fuel its public sector ambitions revealing that the government attempts to get more SME suppliers involved in the market is paying off.
Along with cutting spending in the public sector the government has made moves to open up the buying process to ensure that the best deals can be found for those departments and local councils looking to save money.
Earlier this year the reseller said that it wanted to maintain strong growth in the public sector and has now revealed it will recruit 20 additional staff over the course of this year.
The plans include recruiting a senior framework manager, two dedicated partnership managers, and a number of healthcare specialists, who will work with experienced public sector sales manager Anthony Cowen.
Cowen said that it was only a year since it gained access to the Buying Solutions Framework and it had moved quickly.
"At a time when the Government is encouraging the public sector to work with more SMEs, we have had very positive feedback from clients and partners supporting our investment in the UK public sector." said Jamie Burke, public sector sales director at Softcat.
