Careers at NQA
"People are our most important asset and we truly value the contribution they make to our clients."
Nick Wright, Managing Director
Why work for NQA?
NQA UK currently employs circa 100 team members. Working for us is extremely rewarding in both a professional and personal capacity. Our culture is unique in that we are a small tight knit team that work hard and passionately towards delivering technical excellence in a strong customer focussed environment.
Team work and collaboration is an essential part of what makes NQA so special and we regularly hold team events and focus on staff engagement to ensure we maintain that “family” environment!
As a result we work with a wide variety of interesting clients around the world such as:
- innovative small businesses like CityFibre
- government departments like the Ministry of Defence
- multinational consumer brands such as Jaguar Land Rover and Costa Coffee
- world famous icons like NASA.
Our team helps these organisations to Never Stop Improving by providing a great service and ensuring our clients get the best value from our training and certification services.
In addition to this NQA is a proud sponsor of the Armed Forces and has received the Silver MOD Employer Recognition Scheme Award.
