M247, parent company of Prime Hosting, is growing even more and after building our second Trafford Park datacentre within 3 years, we are in the process of recruiting more local talent.

Staffing has gone up steadily during 2012 and 10 new recruits have been taken on recently not just from the field of computer science but electricians, accountancy staff, a new groundsman, administration and sales staff have also found employment in this fast growing company.

With our headquarters in Manchester, M247 has two more buildings that it will soon be opening fully and another established in Kidderminster in the Midlands where additional sales personnel have been taken on to spearhead a product sales push in the competitive colocation and connectivity markets.

Jonathan Buckle, Operations Director of M247 said “We are a 24 hour operation and have to support thousands of customers in every time zone around the world. We are keen to get the right kind of technical skills matched to our specific needs. Fortunately Manchester has a wealth of this kind of talent and we have taken on some really skilled engineers who will help us in our technical support efforts. We are always interested in talking to individuals who have exceptional Linux and Windows skills and who want to hold on to our coat tails as we grow our business. We have a team of developers who are busy working on some of the bespoke software that keeps our operation running smoothly and here again, we expect to grow this department in the very near future.”

M247 has experienced month on month growth since it moved to Manchester from London in 2009. Career opportunities are good and the company has earned a reputation for being a fair and caring outfit with an impressively strong financial base.
