A Bristol-based financial services business has expanded its team, bringing its total number of employees to over 100. Quantum Advisory provides pension and employee benefits services to employers and scheme trustees.
Following a surge in demand for pensions services in the south west, Quantum opened its Prince Street office in 2016 taking the company’s total offices to five, alongside Cardiff, Amersham, Birmingham and London.
The new recruits include Senior Project Development Analyst Simon Freeman, HR Officer Tessy Matthew, Accounts Assistant Charlie Laundon, Payroll Officer Gemma Pugh, Pensions Administrator Louisa Fieldhouse and Pensions Administrator Jenny Smith.
For graduate Charlie, this is his first fulltime role. He said: “The ability to work towards a professional qualification was important to me and at Quantum I am able to study for ICAEW ACA. Being new, I’m hoping that a fresh set of eyes within the team could help us to find ways to make our processes even more efficient.”
Simon has 27 years in the pension industry having started his career with Sun Alliance in 1991.
He said: “I really admire the vision and values that Quantum maintains and the company’s relationship with their staff as well as the services it offers. I believe strongly in working with other people towards a common goal and know the skills and pensions knowledge I possess will not only bring me work satisfaction, but will also make me a valuable team member.”
Jenny combines her position with studying for a Certificate in Pension Calculations (CPC).
She said: “Quantum offer good study support and I was able to transfer over my current exams when I started. I’m now working on both defined contribution schemes and defined benefit, whereas in my previous role I solely worked on defined benefit schemes.
“I’m looking forward to gaining this extra experience and I think that Quantum giving me more responsibility will help push me to develop.”
