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.
Andy Bragg | Managing Director
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.”
Darren Cumner | Plant Manager
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.”
Darren Hawks | Vice President HSE
Partnering with Pauline and the Quantum team has been a key element to delivering a step change in our safety performance. Identifying top HSE professionals, that are quickly engaged across all the regions of the globe and co-located to our key business hubs. A company that’s easy to do business with and totally aligned to its customer needs.
Ian McLeish | VP Sales and Marketing
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.”
Manuel Landeira Mansilla | Training & Recruitment Manager
We enlisted the help of Quantum for a recent search in Sweden for a new General Manager and I would highly recommend them. They provided an excellent and professional service from start to finish, getting to know our business and what is important to us and then finding suitable candidates that demonstrated they really understood our requirements.
The search was thorough, with exceptional communication at each stage of the process and we look forward to working with them again.

Scott Hyde | Senior HR Director – Middle East, Turkey & Central Asia
Having worked with Pauline & her Quantum team since 2015, I am consistently delighted how the team works ‘as one’ to secure the very best global talent for niche operational & strategic leadership opportunities for Honeywell. The Quantum team is a great partner, super easy to work with and more than happy to iterate the search to ensure the ‘right talent’ is hired should the mandate or requirement change.
Wei Deng | Senior Director, Head of Strategy in 3D sensing technology
It was a great experience working with Quantum experts. The process is completely customised. They really understood my expectations and concerns, and the communication was very professional. As a customer, I can truly rely on their advice and the outcome was exceptional.
Claude Payen | General Manager
I started the collaboration with Quantum in 2011 as I was applying for a General Manager position in Colart (France), which I got.
I think I have done the job as my bosses kept me in that position for 7 years before I get my pension we have gone through many storms, my bosses recognised the great contribution of the factory to the group targets and achievements they were fully confident, the collaboration we had proved to be successful
I worked with Adele and Pauline and kept very nice relationships with them especially when I needed to recruit (6 employees).
I even recruited my successor thanks to them the candidates they suggested revealed to be the good choice and their advices relevant the follow up of the candidates were helpful as well some of them are now sharing the GMT (Group Management Team) at the highest level of the group showing the efficiency of the candidates recruited.
I can just recommend Quantum and thank them for helping me building a strong team still delivering results at the highest levels of the group.
Some thoughts from candidates...
Here are just a few testimonials from candidates that we have helped to place…
Hari Murthy | Senior Engineer
“I was really excited to hear about the current role from the Quantum team and everything is history. I really loved the approach. The team is really friendly, supportive and very professional in sorting out from general conversation to the new role onboarding. A BIG THANK YOU to the Quantum team for the help provided to secure the job.”
Thomas Hoffman | Director Procurement Europe
“Starting in early 2020, I decided to reorient my career. Especially in times of Corona and the weakening automotive industry, a partner had to be found who with many years of experience could fill positions on the management level. With Quantum, I had a top company by my side during my search. Quantum has distinguished itself through very close professional support. Intensive coaching and appropriate preparation for upcoming discussions were part of the process. After only a few weeks we were able to find a position that was tailored to my needs. At this point I would like to thank the Quantum team again.”
Fredrik Prowse | Britmer Plant General Manager
I was contacted by Quantum regarding a new position and was immediately impressed with their approach and professionalism. They really took time to get to know my background and what I was looking for to ensure the role was a good fit for me. It was a really enjoyable process with regular updates, feedback and support. I am now thoroughly enjoying the new challenge which was exactly the right step for me and I hope to have the opportunity to work with them again if I ever have any recruitment needs in my team!
I can only give my absolutely best recommendations to use Adele and the team.
