Technology firm, UKFast, has announced plans to create 100 new positions at its headquarters in Manchester. The company provides specialist support services for clients using cloud based data storage systems, which have grown in popularity over recent years. CEO, Lawrence Jones, commented that the new recruitment was driven by the need to service this increasing demand, particularly since the launch of the eCloud service in 2013. The timing for the new jobs has not been confirmed, but it is being reported that UKFast will hold a series of recruitment days over the coming months.
