Our team tell you why there is no place like QA
Finding the right job goes beyond salary. You’ll want to know what it’s really like to work for QA. Our team will tell you why QA is an awesome choice.
Coming to work doesn’t feel like a task. We’re all really driven, managers do a great job keeping their teams motivated. I was Sales Person of the Year in 2016 – a highlight of my career here. I felt really proud and appreciated. It made me realise if you work hard at QA, you’ll get recognised. I stay at QA because of career progression, opportunity and the people.
My tech background helps me share my knowledge and identify roles that candidates would be good at. My manager gave me great support and helped me develop into the person I’ve become. No two days are the same here, it’s challenging but rewarding. When a candidate gets a job, hearing how happy they are offers me great satisfaction. It’s not all about work though, we have team nights out – when we hit our monthly target – we’re celebrating!
I decided to move into teaching from the military because I reached a point in my career where I could pass on some of my experience (and take a breather from the faster pace of industry). I’m constantly learning – and expanding my technical remit. I interact with loads of industry Cyber Security practitioners and professionals – which adds to the perks of the job.
I reached my limit as a Business Analyst – I wanted to make more of a difference and becoming a training consultant at QA offered me that chance. I use my extensive experience to teach business analysis.
I test and measure the audience response all the time and it’s a real buzz when I get it right and they all have that 'aha' moment (and maybe a laugh at the same time). I am very grateful to my many colleagues, they are a great bunch – very supportive and always able to give you advice on a topic or answer a question.
Before I was a contractor – but I decided to look for a permanent role. QA was growing rapidly which allowed me to take my career to new heights. I love working with people and helping them develop their careers. QA has a relaxed atmosphere, everyone is so supportive.
