About Us - The Quest Story
Since 1994 Quest Search & Selection has been finding the very best talent for blue chip and SME businesses the world over.
We've established an enviable reputation for delivery on our clients’ mandates across commercial disciplines in a variety of sectors and have established a database of over 500,000 people with experience in the disciplines of Sales, Marketing, Purchasing, Supply Chain & Logistics, Technical, Digital, Fashion Design, Buying & Merchandising and Retail Operations.
We've built our reputation around strong account management – all of our account managers have 5+ years recruitment experience or have previously worked in the industry for which they recruit. Alongside their individual teams they ensure that both our candidates and clients receive a focussed and tailored service.
Quest has almost two decades of experience and as a company we have seen good times and bad. The downturn in the economy has made life difficult for everyone and throughout this period we worked hard to maintain our service levels, support our clients as much as possible and work with our candidates to ensure we presented them with as many opportunities as possible.
We are proud of the awards we have received: in 2008 we entered and were placed 70th in the Sunday Times Top 100 Small Companies to work for, we are Investor in People accredited and have been shortlisted for recruitment industry awards including Best Retail Recruiter at the 2011 Recruiter Awards and Best Large Agency at the 2011 Marketing & Advertising Recruitment Awards.
From our offices in London, Manchester and Dubai and through our sister companies www.retailgazette.co.uk and www.retailmoves.com we are able to provide our clients with a variety of delivery options including Contingency, Search and Market Mapping with the option of advertising on Retail Gazette or Retailmoves.com additionally available to clients.
In an industry where new businesses disappear as quickly as they start up, Quest is a brand that endures. Our clients respect this and our repeat business ratio of 93% is a testament to our knowledge and efficiency as a recruitment agency.
