What is it like to work for Quest Search & Selection

My Manager
My Manager
Managers at Quest communicate consultant responsibilities and targets to their teams regularly. This is done through weekly one-to-one and team meetings, and quarterly appraisals. In these meetings, managers will discuss performance against target, and make recommendations to consultants who need extra guidance.
Personal Growth
Personal Growth
Quest create new teams and new offices based on people's abilities and personal needs. Examples are Manchester, Sri Lanka and Dubai. In all these cases the company had an employee who strongly wished to or needed to relocate. Where there was a business case Quest created an office and in two cases promoted the people at the same time (in the third example of Sri Lanka they couldn't promote the manager because they had reached the highest level as their Financial Controller). All these new offices resulted in extra local employment with several significant benefits such as retaining great staff, expanding their markets, saving costs. The staff that opened these offices have experienced and enjoyed huge jumps in their learning curves, career development and at all times this has worked alongside their personal needs and balanced their work-life /home-life needs.

Each summer Quest hold a rounders match in a local park in which all employees participate. The company pays for transport to London and accommodation for staff from their Manchester office as they believe it's important for staff from both offices being given the opportunity to meet in person. The most recent of these was held in July 2011 and was a great success. Everyone took part with great enthusiasm (and competitiveness!) and Quest raised money for Cadbury's Spots & Stripes appeal. After the game, employees went to a local pub where a barbecue dinner was provided. All of staff at Quest look forward to the annual rounders game - it really is the highlight of their Summer!
