Fast Track is the UK's leading business publishing, networking events and research company focusing primarily on top-performing private companies and entrepreneurs. We are based in Oxford and have a successful 18-year track record.

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

The current team consists of 20 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 also interested in working and living in Oxford, but still being paid a London salary, and would relish working closely with some of the UK's top entrepreneurs, demanding blue-chip sponsors and national media partner, who are all predominately based in London.

If you think you have the skills, experience and attitude to make a difference to this growing entrepreneurial business, please email, in confidence, your CV and one page cover letter, to
