Graduate Analyst Intake 2024

Project Management, Analytics, Data, Statistics.


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. 

With more new and rewarding projects in development, we have multiple opportunities to kickstart your career in project and people management, data analysis or management consultancy. Quick Release provides hands-on experience of complex, positive-impact projects, together with fast-paced training, mentoring, and a caring company culture that promotes flexibility, fulfillment and work-life balance.

We usually hire for Graduate roles three months in advance of the intake date. We do expect to have regular intakes throughout 2024, so if you are looking for a later start date we would still welcome your application now, and if you successfully complete the process we will typically make any offers three months prior to when you are looking to start.

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.
