Take a look at what Ben, one of our Marlow team, has to say about life at Quantuma:

"I joined Quantuma 4 years ago as an assistant administrator having completed my degree in Business and Management.

I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to do and, when the opportunity with Quantuma came up, I was interested to find out more about the career opportunities.

My first impressions were good, the role seemed interesting and I could tell that it was not going to be a boring job. From the start it seemed like something that I could really get involved in with a view to forging a career path.

The team here is really knowledgeable, everyone is always talking, sharing information and asking questions. It was great for me coming into insolvency with no experience because I was able to learn on the job and get the support from the team.

I was promoted to Administrator after about a year and then Senior Administrator after about 3 and a half years. I have also been busy completing my CPI qualification which I passed in the summer and was grateful to Quantuma for funding and giving me the time to undertake. Quantuma has supported me throughout my time here in terms of learning and developing myself. The company supports all type of additional learning, if you find a course that you think will support your development or learning then they will always try and accommodate it.

As with all jobs it isn’t always easy, we often have challenging conversations with people and sometimes have to work very quickly to get something done.

I think everyone will probably say the same but the best thing, for me, about working at Quantuma is the people I work with every day. We all get along really well and it’s a really sociable environment that has helped me come out of my shell more and more since I started. I happily get involved in all of the social activities that are on offer including our football and netball teams.

If I had to offer some words of wisdom to someone joining Quantuma it would be to enjoy the process of learning and give it time. There is a lot to learn when you join but, if you stick with it, the rewards and the job satisfaction are very worthwhile. Put the time in and ask as many questions at you can. It probably sounds cliché but there really are no stupid questions, the team is very knowledgeable and we welcome someone who wants to learn and make the team stronger with their knowledge. "
