Over the past two decades, UKFast has grown from a start up to a multi-million pound business. We are one of the UK’s leading cloud, managed hosting and colocation providers - supplying dedicated server hosting, private, hybrid and public cloud hosting solutions, and a full range of technical and cybersecurity services. Dedicated to innovation and providing world-class solutions, we help transform our customers’ businesses, bringing together cutting-edge technology with multi-award-winning customer service and support. We support a full cross section of UK enterprise, from local businesses and charities, to global manufacturers and retailers, local and central Government, the NHS and the Ministry of Defence.
2021 is looking like a transformational year for our business following a large investment from the leading mid-market private equity firm Inflexion in 2020. UKFast is about to undergo a major change programme to enhance its existing proposition, build its Public/Hybrid Cloud offer, and refocus on targeting the most attractive customer segments. To support this change UKFast are currently looking to add an experienced Account Manager to the ever growing Account Management team and as such, we are searching for a highly driven individual who love building lasting relationships with clients and get excited about new challenges. We are looking for a commercially astute individual with a strong track record in IT Sales and somebody who loves to build and nurture lasting relationships with customers.
