Subs Resourcing Ltd
Rebecca Hart, Director of Subs Resourcing Ltd is an experienced recruiter with over 7 years in the industry, primarily in the industrial sector. Rebecca felt the time was right to start her own business and has opened in industrial and construction sectors. Rebecca shares her thoughts about working with Quba Solutions:
“Quba have given me the confidence to start my own business, it was a very smooth and quick process. Dealing with experts in recruitment, they understand the seriousness and urgency of everything. My account manager, Hattie Williams is my shoulder to lean on – she is always there for me and supports me through anything I throw at her and responds instantly. As a service, Quba have provided me with a platform to keep me organised, compliant and support my growing business.”
Opus Recruitment Ltd
With a combined experience of nearly 40 years in the recruitment industry, Jonathan Spooner and business partner Sarah Woods opened Opus Recruitment after working together for several years. A combination of permanent and temporary skill sets, Opus focus on the office services industry. Jonathan and Sarah share their thoughts on their partnership with Quba Solutions:
“Since establishing our recruitment business earlier this year, we have been really impressed with Quba. Quba offer us so much in terms of support, from the user-friendly website, which we use to manage clients, credit control and assignment; to the timesheet system, which has received positive feedback from both our candidates and clients. The support from Mike and Hattie has been fantastic – no question has gone unanswered, and the fact we have a dedicated account manager and credit controller makes the relationship run smoothly - we always have the same point of contact who understands our business. Quba is a fantastic model for recruiters looking to set up on their own, and they take away so much of the hassle in terms of billing and cash management.”
Kenna Recruitment Ltd
Simon Kenna, has worked in the recruitment industry since 2001. A highly experienced, knowledgeable specialist in his field. Simon has managed numerous teams of people over the years, he is well known and well respected individual in the construction and recruitment sector. It’s an absolute pleasure for Quba to work with him and see Kenna Recruitment Ltd flourish.
“Quba have been very flexible/human in their approach to business, they have always listened and responded immediately to small obstacles we have faced. As we grow and our temp base gets bigger they have offered fair rates to reflect the level of business we plan on doing. We are overall very pleased and plan using them for the foreseeable future.”
Padstone Recruitment Ltd
Wesley Angus, Director of Paadstone Recruitment Ltd has worked in recruitment for over a decade at national blue chip recruiters.
“I’ve always felt the desire to grow my own company with my own ethos processes and culture. I believed things could be done differently, better and work should be more about cultivating a trustworthy team than thankless internal competition with no prospects or promises accept burnout. I approached the industry’s leading factoring companies prior to start up, Quba stood out from their competition for a number of reasons which made them an obvious choice for us as experienced recruiters. The back-office support that you get with Quba is excellent. It’s as efficient as the industries national giants and they’ve done an amazing job for us and our clients often remark on how great they run our accounts. They’re professional, dedicated and have personable account managers that are always on the phone after hours if I ever need them. Being able to leave invoicing and timesheets in their hands free’s up time for sales and account management. The finance products available create cash flow and promote fast growth which transformed our initial growth projections and put us years ahead of where we thought we’d be by now. Coupled with the expert advice from people that have such specialist and in-depth knowledge of the recruitment industry you simply couldn’t ask for a better company to partner with. I’d have no problem recommending them to anyone looking to take the leap of faith and encourage anybody looking for a finance partner to arrange a coffee and ask for a demonstration of the superb dashboard software which we now use in our business every day.”
Prior to opening LemonTea Recruitment, Anthony Whitehead had worked in the recruitment industry for approaching 10 years, ultimately holding a senior management position. Upon forming the business and partnering with Quba, LemonTea have thrived focussing on placing skilled technicians into specialist sectors.
“After setting up my own recruitment agency I needed a reliable, suitable and flexible funding service. I have found the service provided by Quba Solutions to be first class at every turn. Account managers will always go above and beyond to help you out with any query/ problem that occurs and are always available whatever the time of day. Coupled up with a very simple to use online dashboard you can’t go wrong...”
Konnect Recruit Ltd
Sam Bestall, Director of Konnect Recruit Ltd has been in recruitment since 2009 working at one of the leading blue chip recruiters in the UK. He started as a trainee and progressed over the years to a team leader position, looking after a number of consultants.
“Thanks to Ashley, Rik and Paul at Quba Solutions I have managed to leave a big corporate company and successfully start up Konnect Recruit. I feel that Konnect are in a very good position as a company and we have been able to grow our recruitment empire. We started the company early 2016 with just myself and have now grown to 10 members, soon to expand even more. This has been thoroughly helped by the excellent advice and support provided by Quba throughout our business journey. Konnect have been able to start the company without using a loan which has therefore helped our business to thrive. I look forward to continuing to work with Quba as a successful partnership and to help Konnect grow to its full potential.”

Sam and the team have always been available to offer their help and support with all elements of our back office and finance. To put it simply, Quba makes running our business simple.
