UKFast

Join the staff of this Manchester internet hosting company and in your first week of training you may be expected to scale Mount Snowdon. Managing director Lawrence Jones founded the company in 1999 and he attributes much of its success to the teamwork such challenges foster, as well as to using psychometrics to select staff. With new customers such as the RNLI lifeboat charity and Foot Asylum, the company claims that its recently opened data centre is already 80% pre-booked. Sales rose 45% a year from £4m in 2007 to £12.2m in 2010.
