Claire Granados

Principal at Quest Professional

My work philosophy:

Staying in your comfort zone is like staying in bed. It's warm and comfortable but nothing will happen unless you get out of it.

My Roles and Responsibilities

Based in the heart of Westminster, Quest Professional is a business college focussed on equipping A Level and University leavers with the business acumen, employability and interview skills required to fast-track them into the world of work. Supported by the college’s dynamic recruitment arm - with its strong and significant links with City of London employers - Quest has a proven record in employability with over 87% of students securing a job within just 8 weeks of graduating. I have overall responsibility for the day-to-day running of the college, for sales and marketing of the programmes and line management of the Quest team.

Experience

I graduated from the University of Manchester with a degree in foreign languages. I have worked for over 20 years in international education as a teacher, teacher trainer, academic manager, operations director and college principal. I enjoy diverse people-facing roles which give me the scope to be creative and give clients and my team the best possible experience.

Why am I on Connect?

Whom would I like to mentor?
