Graduate Consultant Intake 2024

Automotive, Analytics, Aerospace.


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.

We Are QR_!

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. We’re very proud to have been named in the FT’s Leading Consultancies list for the third year running, and we’ve also made it onto the Forbes global list of the best Management Consultancies.

With more new and exciting projects in development, we are currently seeking to strengthen our consultancy project delivery team. If you're looking to kickstart your career in consultancy or project management, we can offer you interesting, exciting and impactful projects, together with fast-paced training, mentoring, and a caring company culture that promotes flexibility, fulfilment and work-life balance.

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

This intake isn't just for recent graduates. We genuinely welcome applicants with all levels of experience on the team. So, whether you've just finished uni, you're returning to work after time out, or you're looking for a new challenge in a new sector, the ongoing growth of our team means we have lots of opportunities to start your training as soon as you're ready!

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.

We welcome applications from people with all levels of experience for this role.
