We are UKFast.
Over the past two decades, we have grown from a start-up to a multi-million-pound business. We are one of the UK’s leading cloud and secure managed hosting providers - supplying dedicated servers, private and public cloud hosting solutions, and a full range of technical, cybersecurity, and DevOps consulting services. We’re moving fast, continuously innovating and having a lot of fun in the process.
We transform our customers’ businesses through robust technology, world-class solution engineering, and multi-award-winning customer service.
We design, build and support thousands of technical solutions every year for a full cross-section of the UK economy, from local businesses and charities to fast-growing eCommerce and financial services businesses, global manufacturers and retailers, local and central Government, the NHS and the Ministry of Defence - all seeking new and innovative ways of hosting their IT solutions.
Our business is built entirely around our people and our customers. We invest in our people and work hard to ensure our teams are inspired, motivated and supported. We are customer-obsessive and committed to self-development, hard work and having fun. We believe in everyone bringing their whole self to work as part of our fantastic bunch.
Our in-house training facility is widely accredited. For instance, we are the only managed service provider in the UK to be an accredited AWS training centre.
We care passionately about doing the right thing - for our customers and each other. It’s important to us that UKFast is a diverse, inclusive and socially-conscious employer that contributes positively to our communities and environment. For instance, we have been Carbon neutral for many years.

Our plan is to become the best market provider in truly Hybrid Cloud solutions. Integral to this is the fundamental redesign of both our core network infrastructure and eCloud: UKFast’s own private cloud product. These large-scale high-profile projects have led us to search for a Network Team Leader to help us transform our internal infrastructure.
Leading the Network Engineering team and working closely with UKFast’s infrastructure teams, you will have ownership of network project management, team developments and the generation of new policies and processes.
You will not only lead on the development of UKFast’s critical network infrastructure, you will develop individuals within your team to reach their full potential. You will naturally take ownership of major incidents should they occur. Being a natural leader, you will role model what great leadership looks like.
There are always opportunities to improve the way we do things. Continuous innovation is therefore an integral part of the role, not least as we are undertaking a major upgrade of our networks over the next 18 months. This is therefore a fantastic opportunity for an individual who thrives in a lean, collaborative, and fast-paced environment - a leader who is driven to deliver high quality network infrastructure and service outcomes whilst developing a growing team.
This is a unique opportunity to have a truly transformational impact on our business - a genuinely career-defining role. In 5 years time you should look back at this role as one of the most exciting, impactful, and personally rewarding periods of your professional life.
