Fast Track is the UK's leading business research and networking events company focusing on top-performing private companies and entrepreneurs.
We are based in Oxford and have a successful 20-year track record.

We rank the top private companies in seven annual league table awards programmes in partnership with The Sunday Times, from the fastest-growing to the biggest, and run high-calibre invitation-only dinners for their owners and directors to network and to meet our sponsors.

The current team consists of 25 permanent staff and a network of freelance researchers and writers, some of whom have worked for Fast Track for over ten years. Many have postgraduate Oxbridge degrees, some have accountancy and commercial research experience, and others have worked for major national newspapers and events companies.

Fast Track is always on the lookout for talented people; particularly if they are interested in working and living in Oxford, but for a company that punches above its weight nationally. We are looking for people who would relish working closely with some of the UK's top entrepreneurs, demanding blue-chip sponsors and national media partner.
