Career stories from our colleagues

Why you work in recruitment and why Quest?

I joined Quest as a fresh graduate after completing a BSc in Sociology & Social Psychology at Loughborough. Not having a natural vocation through my degree I knew I wanted a role that was target-orientated as well as being very much focused on people; recruitment sounded like a good option!

What is challenging and rewarding about the role?

The challenge is that no two days are the same! Priorities may change on a regular basis, and it's about developing and managing your workload. The rewards are great financially in recruitment, but there are still other reasons we go to work. At Quest, we create a challenging, rewarding and fun workspace.

Quest also have other great incentives such as meals out, trips away and retail vouchers. Being a manager I am keen on growth and developing others to achieve their goals. It’s great to see people you have hired as novices become great consultants that are making a difference with their own development and getting financial rewards.

What have you achieved at Quest?

I have been in the business for 12 years and love the role and the opportunity to develop your own team and business. I have achieved on-going development, management training and developed a diverse portfolio of clients. I have achieved a number of awards during my tenure here including being the highest billing consultant ever in Quest's 22 years of existence! So very pleasing results and not to mention having a successful team who are an asset to the business.

Rubee loves....It’s a Topshop love affair
2017-04-21 16:00:00 +0100

The 5-piece bridal range from Topshop has officially launched last week and it’s been making a real stir! The dreamy collection accommodates to all tastes, featuring full length gowns, a bardot shoulder and a midi number. The styles are in sumptuous fabrics including bias-cut satin, cutwork lace and hand embellishment all in dewy pastels. The amazing shoot features model Grace Elizabeth in the blush peach full length number which in my opinion is the show stopper piece! The price point is aff... Read more.
