Welcome to the Quantum Academy.
Quantum are very excited to announce the arrival and launch of the ‘Quantum Academy’. The Academy supports our ambitions and continuing strategy to develop ‘new talent’ and provide new opportunities within the market.
Our purpose is to seek professional people, who perhaps have experienced resistance to joining our industry due to lack of product/market knowledge. We believe that the next generation of fantastic individuals should have an opportunity to join our market, facilitated via Quantum.
Quantum’s outlook is to promote a professional, enjoyable work environment that lends itself to young aspiring people, looking to enhance their careers. We provide a range of facilities to improve productivity, including mental health and wellbeing such as, an in-house gym, breakout areas, fresh fruit, and free vehicle charging points to name a few! People are the heart of our business, and we want to give back, providing opportunities for growth and professional development.
Upon joining the Academy, each candidate undergoes six-months training to gain product experience and learn about the business from a logistical and operational perspective. This is followed by an intensive three-month training program, where we have segmented each area of training, by choosing a preferred supplier to cover their specialities and market offer. After completion they will become an Internal Account Manager at Quantum. This is a fantastic opportunity for individuals looking to progress up to higher management as well as control their earnings, thanks to Quantum’s NO CAP COMMISSION EARNINGS.
Countdown to next Academy.
What are Quantum seeking..?
We are seeking driven and ambitious individuals, who have experience within the Sales and Customer service sectors, who understand the importance of providing high customer service and a memorable customer experience.
Candidates must have the willingness to learn a new industry and products, via an initial 6 months training in the Logistics & Operations department, then onto our paid intensive 3 month product training program with suppliers, to allow themselves the freedom to have no cap on their earning potential.
Individuals should be situated within 20 miles of Crawley with the ability to commute.
