Careers with Quick Release_

Analysts, project managers, technical wizards and communication experts serious about doing a good job, and serious about having a good time doing it.

Are you ready to make a difference?

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 technology start-ups.

With more new and exciting projects in development, we're always looking for more amazingly talented people to join the QR team and share in our journey.

Whether you're a recent graduate looking to kickstart a rewarding career, or an experienced professional looking for a new challenge, we'd love to hear from you.

We've listed current openings below, but don't be put off if you don't see something that fits your specific skills and attributes. You can also sign up to be the first to hear about new opportunities, or connect with us on LinkedIn and tell us what you bring to the party!

Starting points for your QR_ journey


Analysts are the backbone of QR_, and the original PDM Professionals. After completing a three-week bootcamp, analysts are affiliated to a geographical ‘hive’ and later a sector-based ‘practice’ as they progress and begin to specialise.

Promotion to management brings the opportunity to specialise in either project management or people management, but marks can be made far before this through involvement in professional or play-oriented working groups, or simply become the go-to for a particular client or service offering.


Geographically mobile and willing to spend time away from home? Consultancy could be for you, and provide a chance to:

Influence a wide range of industries all over the world, from autonomous robotics, to green energy technologies, to electric vehicle startups.

Work with C-suite stakeholders and senior consultants from day one.

Be part of a closeknit, supportive team in a wellbeing-focussed company, where you're measured on your impact, not your timesheet.

Senior and specialist

Apart from Analysts and Consultants, QR_ also needs individuals covering a number of specialties from software development (our ‘Special Projects’ team), through HR, to recruitment, and creative disciplines in the marketing sphere.

And even if roles aren’t explicitly advertised, we’re always on the lookout for experienced practitioners to keep us fresh and competitive, and sector-experts available to serve in an advisory capacity. If either of these sound like you, reach out to one of the Talent Acquisition team listed down the page.

TA Senior Manager

John started as QR_’s Talent Acquisition Manager in 2019. Day to day, he hires individuals for more technical roles, looks after reporting and is the go to for TA stats (hence his nickname, ‘Statman John’).

Outside of QR_, you’ll find him in the countryside or in the sea, generally enjoying life.

What he likes most about working at QR_ is the variety of projects he gets to work on and the freedom to be a force for change within the business.
