QR_Values

Being the best at what we do is important to us (we’ve just been named amongst the FT’s leading management consultancies for the third year running) but Quick Release has always been about more than project delivery. We can only be the best by looking after our team and we are very much a people-first business. We offer an environment of support, inclusion and encouragement, where our people can be authentic, be heard, enjoy their work, and thrive. Team-building, learning, development and career progression are at the core of what we do, and we take great pride in our positive company culture.

We also take pride in our diversity and we respect, value and celebrate multiple approaches and points of view. We challenge inequality in all its forms, in others, and especially in ourselves. We’re not perfect, but we want to be better and do better. We are fully committed to this in our actions as well as in our words.

As an equal opportunities employer, Quick Release will never discriminate on the basis of gender, race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, socio-economic background, marital status, or disability status.

If at any point throughout the recruitment process you require any reasonable adjustments to be made, please do let us know and we will be happy to help. We welcome applications from people with all levels of experience for this role.

We’re aware that many candidates these days are using AI language models to help them with their job applications. Whilst we understand the use of this kind of technology to assist with applications, it’s worth noting that answers copied directly from AI tend to come across very generic and detract from the quality of applications. In order to give yourself the best chance of letting yourself shine in your application, we strongly recommend personalising your answers based on your own experience.
