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 a senior level 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.
