Job Details

QR's reputation for product data management and consultancy has put us at the vanguard of transforming the automotive, aerospace and robotics industries across the globe, as they seek to build better products and a more sustainable future. As a team, we are particularly excited to be supporting the development of some truly planet-changing products, including connected, electric and solar vehicles and an increasingly diverse range of new technologies.

With more new and exciting projects in development, we are currently seeking to strengthen our consultancy project delivery team. If you're looking for the next step in your career in consultancy or project management, we can offer you interesting, exciting and impactful projects, a genuinely positive and caring company culture, great learning and progression, and products that are both ground-breaking and good for the planet.

Quick Release Consultants deliver varied and complex engagements for companies who are looking to get their new technology to market fast and more efficiently.

Every project is different, and our consultants are empowered to leverage their judgment and expertise to solve a broad range of clients’ challenges.

Usually starting with a diagnostic, these projects very often rapidly scale-up into much larger hands-on, cross-functional deployments, blending analytics and reporting with project management and software implementation.

Our continued growth means we have opportunities for consultancy expertise across a range of UK locations with a range of 2022 start dates.

The Challenge
  • Work with clients to develop a deep insight into people, process, system and data, to complete diagnostics and reporting.
  • Develop strong relationships and become a trusted and knowledgeable advisor to clients.
  • Shape solutions, propose project plans and support cross-functional and cross-business resources to deliver desired outcomes.
  • Support deployments and development and of our technical/software tools and solutions.

  • Support the wide range of (QR internal) business improvement projects and initiatives (eg team building, events, CSR, diversity, pride, mental health, innovation labs, sports and music)
  • Time spent on-site with clients has huge value, so travel is an important part of the role. We try to keep it local, but if further afield, you’ll always be home for Friday evenings. We also host regular Friday workshops at our offices in London to review our projects and connect with the team.

Requirements
  • 2-5 years of management consulting expertise including delivery of AGILE client-facing projects.
  • A first-class or very high 2.1 bachelors’ degree, masters’ degree or PhD in any discipline (it doesn’t need to be STEM) .
  • Strong project and people management skills, inspiring trust and confidence from clients and teammates alike
  • Exceptional professional written and verbal communication skills; you can walk and talk with manufacturing, technical and business contacts.
  • Strong data skills - able to demonstrate the ability to present data-driven stories and solutions that stakeholders will buy into.
  • A commitment to personal improvement and continuous professional development.
  • The confidence and resilience to learn from mistakes- to get back up and try again or keep pushing forwards when things aren't going to plan.
  • Genuine curiosity and drive to be the best, make a difference and drive change for people and planet.

Benefits
  • Varied and interesting projects ranging from small EV startups to huge global brands.
  • Salary of £40,000-£50,000 and bonus
  • An extensive package of other benefits.
  • A highly motivated, diverse, talented and supportive team with a positive "people-focussed" company culture.
  • 24 days holiday plus public holidays.
  • Extensive ongoing learning and development.

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 and value 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, and we are fully committed to this in our actions as well as 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.

We're inviting candidates with 2-5 years of relevant experience to apply for this role. Please see our other openings for roles requiring 0-2 years and 5+ years experience.
