European search and selection specialist Quantum expands into new Paris offices for automotive and manufacturing clients

A year after opening its first office in France, manufacturing and automotive recruitment specialist Quantum Search & Selection is planning to move into larger offices in Paris to cope with a rapidly increasing client base.
Five full time consultants are now working in the Paris Office fulfilling briefs across France for top clients such as Faurecia, Magna, Trelleborg, Rieter and Plastic Omnium.

Quantum’s French office is managed by Marie Huriaux. Huriaux’s 16 years of search experience combined with an in-depth knowledge of the French market has meant Quantum has exceeded its first year’s financial targets in France.

With 30 consultants working in offices in the UK, France and Poland, Quantum has developed a reputation for completing assignments that other consultancies shy away from. Long standing partnerships with major automotive companies looking to make senior management and board level appointments throughout Central and Western Europe, has seen the company double in size every year since 2004.
Managing director, Gerald Andrews, comments: “The planned opening of our new, larger Paris office highlights the fact that we are benefiting from clients who can’t find a high quality recruitment partner with a genuine pan European approach. If we have a position to fill in Poland we don’t just look locally, we use all our offices to look across Europe. Our team of high calibre consultants combine both industry and recruitment experience plus many are multi-lingual so we are culturally and practically speaking the same language as our clients.”

Best known for its expertise in the automotive sector, Quantum has developed into new sectors and is also servicing clients in manufacturing, engineering, FMCG and energy markets.

Andrews continues: “Although we pride ourselves in being number one in automotive search and selection, we realise our skills transfer easily to other market sectors where we are making real inroads.”

“Our goal is to cement our geographical reach by opening additional European offices where we need them and to ensure our service to clients is of an unparalleled standard in an industry where delivery often falls short of the promise.”
