MediaCityUK based hosting company Datacentreplus are on track to create 20 new jobs in Salford and Manchester in the next 12 months.
Set up in 2015, Datacentreplus provides cloud hosting solutions and other data centre solutions for businesses from its ISO27001-certified data centre, based closed to MediaCityUK.
The facility is 100% privately owned by Manchester entrepreneur Mashukul Hoque, representing a major investment in the area.
The new jobs will cover both technical and sales positions at head office and data centre buildings. The company is also setting up a number of apprentice positions to provide opportunities to young people who may not otherwise be able to obtain positions in a technology company through lack of traditional qualifications.
Datacentreplus CEO Mashukul Hoque commenting on the growth of Datacentreplus said: “As the company continues to grow, we are very excited to be expanding our team to help us in our commitment to deliver world-class customer service to our customers and also to help better understand their needs.
“As part of our business model we are not looking to become just another data centre service provider – we want to be a key contributor to the growth of the digital sector in the North West.
“We very much want to play a strong role within the technology community in and around Salford and Manchester and hopefully encourage, attract and nurture digital talent to this region of the country”.
