From my practical background, I was fully aware the last thing people wanted to do was read procedures or fill in forms.
I came from a strong project background kicking off QMUK in 2001. M&E Quality Engineer for the Main Contractor during the Installation & Commissioning Phase of the Channel Tunnel Project, I progressed through a few sectors to my last position of Quality Mgr for the British Airways New World Cargo Centre.
I set up QMUK to initially offer Mgt Systems & ISO 9001 Certification Consultancy. From my practical background, I was fully aware the last thing people wanted to do was read procedures or fill in forms. However, to gain certifications you have to demonstrate you meet a series of requirements – documenting procedures & creating forms is the easiest & perhaps laziest route.
With more imagination & realizing there was a better way I decided to create a consultancy that offered a more Pragmatic approach creating systems for certification that added value rather than documentation.
I have always looked for practical Mgt & Systems experience rather than 1-week Practitioner or Auditor training courses attended.
Any consultants we recruited over the years were employed for similar reasons, I have always looked for practical Mgt & Systems experience rather than 1-week Practitioner or Auditor training courses attended.
By 2003 we were implementing Environmental, Health & Safety Standards ISO 14001 & OHSAS 18001 (now ISO 45001). In 2005 we started creating systems to address Information Security & ISO 27001. While that took a few years to be adopted by companies, it is now our largest business stream. We now offer many other standards including ISO 22301 Business Continuity & ISO 20000 IT Service Mgt, amongst others.
All of our consultants adopt the same no-nonsense approach to the standards.

Operations Director at Veber - Cloud Services
Having approached QMUK with regard to obtaining 3 certifications (ISO27001, ISO9001 and ISO14000) in the same time window, their knowledge, direction and guidance was reassuring and didn’t leave us overwhelmed. This friendly and supportive approach enabled us to secure all 3 at the first attempt and their continued support have helped ensure that our compliance has been maintained year on year.
Director of Wilkinson Eyre - Architects
QMUK not only guided us through the certification process but our strong relationship over the last ten years has ensured our quality, environmental and safety processes have matured and developed to suit our evolving business.
COO of EuroDNS
QMUK were our choice for certifying our pan-European business not just due to their commitment to value and their certification guarantee, but also the quality of their approach, their speed and thoroughness and ultimately the outcome.
Group CEO of EBRAND Services
With his pragmatic approach Grant and QMUK helped our little pan-European group to achieve ISO 27001 Certification within the brief time-frame required and to the quoted fixed cost.
Finance Director of The Telemarketing Company
We’ve used QMUK for 9001 and 27001. They’ve successfully guided and supported us to pass first time with no defects for both. Grant’s no-nonsense approach simplified what was initially a daunting undertaking so that whole company got on board.
Head of Property Services, MLL Telecom
Grant makes it all simple - initially his documents look light on detail but actually qmuk's understanding belies this. It's harder to make documents brief, concise and efficient. Grant achieves this consistently, with full understanding of his subject matter. It's only when you start to use them, in a practical situation (especially at audit), when the quality of the documentation becomes apparent.
The knowledge and professionalism of clear quality, along with Grants very approachable attitude, played a huge part in fast tracking us into achieving the ISO9001: 2015 and ISO 27001:2013 standards. Without the help of Grant, this would not have been possible.
