Before we take action on your behalf, creating tailor-made solutions to your needs, Quantum’s consultants immerse themselves in your organisation, forging a deep understanding of what you do – and what you want to do.
Whether we’re consulting on executive recruitment or leadership development all of Quantum’s work involves people. The kind of people you need to drive forward your organisation: creators and innovators, leaders and strategists.
Our consultants pride themselves on their ability to get under the skin of client organisations, ensuring they truly interpret the right development path for that individual organisation and operate as a genuine partner.
Dealing with people at this highest level means listening and understanding are crucial to Quantum’s ethos. We take pride in getting to the heart of your organisation and understanding what – and who – you need in order to achieve the greatest success. Maybe even challenging you to rethink your initial brief.
We have built long standing relationships with major global clients based on deep mutual trust and our commitment to achieve measurable results for them. Because we work across the kinds of sectors which demand detailed insight and industry knowledge, including transport and technology, our consultants endeavour to become immersed in our clients’ organisations, living and breathing their work, before we create a tailor-made answer to their needs.
How We Work
To show you how we act on your behalf to have the most profound and positive impact on your organisation, we break our processes down into the five clear stages. To achieve measurably great results for you, our consultants listen to your needs, question your brief, digest your company’s requirements and culture, suggest creative and innovative solutions and remain constantly on standby to take swift and effective action on your behalf.
Working with talent at the highest level requires insight, caution, care, negotiation and sensitivity. A huge number of steps are involved in every project Quantum undertakes for you. We manage to impress our global clients by exceeding their expectations time and time again with our efficiency and professional approach.
To get to the heart of your organisation and understand who or what you need, our consultants endeavour to become immersed in your business, living and breathing your work.
Thanks to our strong relationship with you, and our deep understanding of your business, we are unafraid to interrogate or even challenge your brief, encouraging you to think differently in order to achieve more.
We consider your brief and your business drivers from our unique standpoint: immersed in your business and yet with a sense of perspective that allows us to be creative and clever in the solutions we bring you.
We put forward innovative solutions that will be effective, sustainable and measurable helping you attract, retain, develop and nurture the kind of innovators and leaders you need to drive your business forward.

Here's what our clients have to say...
It’s all very well us telling you what we think matters. Here’s what our clients have to say about what it is like to work with Quantum.
Amphenol is one of the largest manufacturers of interconnect products in the world. The company designs, manufactures and markets electrical, electronic and fibre optic connectors, cable and interconnect systems.
“Amphenol Limited has been using Quantum for its senior & director level recruitment for 4 years now. I am particularly impressed with the way that they took time to understand the core values of our business and therefore were able to screen candidates for cultural fit as well as capability.
Pauline McGuirk has been a great asset in this regard, always ensuring a good quality of short list (usually including an “out of the box” candidate to provoke thinking about ways of approaching the role). In addition I have found her input at second interview stage invaluable.
In terms of going the extra mile, they have also undertaken an assignment in Southern Africa for us, again providing a capable short list of candidates – so in this case significantly more than an extra mile."
Andy Bragg | Managing Director

Tristone Flowtech are experts in designing, engineering and manufacturing flow technology systems for Engine and Battery Cooling, Air Charge and Air Intake. They supply all major car manufacturers and offer innovations and products for complete flow technology solutions.
“Tristone has a long relationship with Quantum which is testimony to the many successful recruitment assignments that have been completed during this time. Quantum is not only seen as a Search and Selection company but more as a partner supporting our international growth. In building this partnership, Quantum have taken the time to understand our business environment, company culture and the strategy that we are following in terms of market penetration, technology and globalisation. This means that we are rarely confronted with a potential candidate that would not “fit” into the Quantum community and enables us to focus more on the candidates experience, skills, motivation and aspirations.
One recruitment assignment that stands-out as being exceptionally successful long term was a recruitment that we made in 2009 for a UK based PM/KAM where the focus was on the growth and development of our UK customers. The end result has been the recruitment of an individual who has successfully been able to develop our UK customer support office, acquired interesting new business and has now been promoted internally and relocated to our Product Development Centre in Nantes (FR) as engineering manager. This is a good example of how Quantum have not only been able to fulfil our immediate needs but also have been able to identify an individual who had the potential to grow within our organisation and take on greater responsibility.
Often our recruitment needs are urgent and this combined with the ever increasing notice periods of experienced candidates means that the process of initial search and interviews needs to be slick. What we like at Tristone is Quantum’s willingness to coordinate with our own complex schedules and overcome any obstacles that would have normally meant missing out on meeting an interesting potential candidate. This is only possible through the “one-face” of Quantum meaning that Quantum provides continuity by providing one speaking partner through the entire process.”

Hitachi Rail Europe is responsible for the business operation of the transportation division’s products and systems in Europe. It makes use of the most up-to-date, modern and energy efficient engineering technology developed by Hitachi in Japan.
“Hitachi places great emphasis on employing locally where possible and the plant will ultimately create long-term employment, utilising the highly skilled workforce in the vicinity so it is important that we ensure a good cultural awareness through the senior leadership team.
We chose to work with Quantum Group, so we can utilise their expertise and experience of our industry sector and their ability to access and secure high-calibre candidates.”
