IT Business Celebrates 40% Growth And Signs Armed Forces Covenant

Super Fast IT support and cybersecurity business has signed Armed Forces Covenant after seeing tremendous growth which the owner has owed to their military roots.

Superfast IT has signed the Armed Forces Covenant in a virtual signing event attended by Wing Commander Simon Briggs, Royal Air Force.

Superfast IT has pledged to the Armed Forces Covenant – a promise that those who serve or have served, and their families, are treated with fairness and respect in their communities, economy, and society for which they serve with their lives.

James Cash, Founder and Managing Director at Superfast IT, has a military background, beginning his career in the British Army as Fusilier with The Royal Regiment of Fusiliers before successfully transitioning to IT.

James Cash said: “Superfast IT is proud to sign the Armed Forces Covenant and support the Armed Forces Community. It is with great pride that I sign the Armed Forces Covenant alongside Wing Commander Simon Briggs.

“Before I began my career in IT, I served as a soldier in The British Army. Many of the skills I learned in the military are ingrained and have contributed to the business's ongoing success. Our business has grown by 40% in the past two years, and we continue to thrive. My military background continues to positively impact my business and personal life - my son will soon begin his career in the Army, which I am immensely proud of.”

By signing the Covenant, Superfast IT has committed to supporting serving personnel, service leavers, veterans, and their families by fostering relationships between business and the Armed Forces, supporting employment opportunities for veterans, service spouses, and partners, and offering favourable employment terms to support reservist duties.

To date, more than 6500 organisations have signed the Armed Forces Covenant including businesses and charities nationwide.

Bobby Birdi, Regional Employer Engagement Director of the West Midland Reserve Forces & Cadets Association said: “On behalf of the Defence Relationship Management team at the Ministry of Defence, I am delighted that Superfast IT has made this public commitment of support to the Armed Forces Community.

“We thank you for raising awareness among businesses of the wealth of skills inherent in people who are leaving the military, and the opportunities for staff training and development within the Reserve Forces and Cadet Forces. By signing the Armed Forces Covenant, and creating these pledges of support, we hope to support your partnership with defense, thereby creating mutually beneficial outcomes.”
