Work in Oxford, researching Britain’s top entrepreneurs

19th June 2019

Do you want to help us meet the next Richard Branson – and see your work published in The Sunday Times?


In response to our existing and new blue-chip sponsors wanting to do more this year, we’re hiring talented people to help deliver our expanded research and events activities. We are now recruiting for three roles in our research department, which searches out and tracks Britain’s top-performing private companies and entrepreneurs.

These are excellent opportunities for candidates with an interest in entrepreneurs and the financial performance of private companies, meticulous attention to detail, and an eagerness to learn. On offer is the chance to work for a founder-led company in the centre of Oxford, with a nationwide reputation and a track record of success earned by our closely-knit team of c.30 graduates.


  • The first role is for a senior researcher and project manager, and would suit a bright graduate with at least three years’ relevant experience in company research and project management, and ideally some accountancy training and well-developed writing skills. Click here for more details.


  • The second role is for a research project coordinator and visit organiser, and would suit a bright graduate with at least one year’s experience in a relevant field, some of which might have been gained whilst at university or on internships. Confident communication skills and a strong client-service mind-set are required. Click here for more details.


  • The third role is for a research project coordinator and visit organiser (part time / job share), with a similar skill-set and experience to the second role. Click here for more details.


To get a picture of what Fast Track is about, here’s a round-up from our biggest event of the year, the Sunday Times Virgin Atlantic Fast Track 100 conference and awards ceremony, hosted by Holly Branson in Oxfordshire last month.

If you think you have the potential to join our team, or could recommend someone suitable, please have a look at the details of the roles, get in touch, and share this post with your contacts.
