For many years we have been very privileged to be able to help others less fortunate than ourselves.

Quanta supports four charities each year, principally through monies being allocated each time one of many work activities is undertaken by different colleagues across the business in the course of their everyday work. For example, a colleague can contribute by:

  • Processing a CV
  • Arranging an interview
  • Placing a candidate
  • Issuing an invoice 

These are just a few of the tasks that then means an amount is automatically added to the ‘charity pot’. This is then split between our four charities. This means that every employee has a part to play in the raising funds for our chosen charities.

In addition, regular charity days are held at Quanta, with activities such as bake offs, quizzes, and fancy dress competitions, which are taken very seriously and are always accompanied by a barbecue being fired up by our directors.

In 2017, we donated almost £25,000 to our chosen charities and a further £25,000 in 2018, along with other special causes.

We are anticipating that this figure will be even higher in 2019.

As a team we created our company values together. We ensure we continue to champion and promote our values by holding team 'Values Day'.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Quanta Consultancy Services (Berkhamsted, England).

    Interview

    There are a lot of steps in the process, starting with telephone screening and ending with a presentation. This sounds intense but this company have a great reputation with regards to how they treat their staff and therefore need to make sure they find the right person that not only will fit in but will also bring new skills and ideas as already having a solid knowledge base for the role.
