The service from Venquis has always been of a very high level with all vacancies filled within 4 weeks which is an impressive achievement within the London Insurance Market. In 2013 we entered a Managed Agency relationship with Venquis, giving Venquis exclusive access to Business Change vacancies reducing our overall costs of recruitment and further leveraging the great service that Venquis provide.
Venquis are a proactive recruitment company who have worked hard to become a preferred supplier. They attract quality professionals in both the contract and permanent positions and understand their chosen business areas well. Most important to me is their communication approach, which is open, available but never overbearing. They are also trustworthy and recognise the value of long-term relationships.
ATOS has been recruiting Technology & Business Change candidates from Venquis for many years and the service has always been of a very high level. Venquis has introduced us to some exceptional people. As a further indication of my overall satisfaction with Venquis I have recommended Venquis to various personal contacts who have always been delighted with their tailored approach and results.

Famous in the world of retail, British luxury fashion house Burberry worked with Venquis to deliver an exceptional omni-channel customer experience. Venquis specialists successfully supported the delivery of a global transformation programme to upgrade legacy digital asset and content management systems, and global point of sale systems. Director of Digital at Burberry, Giles Smith had the following to say: “I’ve been working with 3-4 recruitment companies over the last few months, not always without headaches and 100’s of missed calls and admin but this has been really different with Venquis and great results so far. You are officially now my number one recruitment lead.” Communication is key Ed Richardson, our Client Manager Solution for Burberry, specialises in the retail sector.

Ed has always been conscious to take time to talk to me in depth about my current role, and what I am looking for so that he has an understanding of my skill set, personality and what I enjoy. This has resulted in him putting me forward for roles which I have found to be a great fit and have allowed me to grow and progress in my career. Once I'm in a role, he is always conscious to check in with me frequently and I have found Venquis to always be very responsive should I have any questions, or queries. The team are really personable, and when I have been interviewing candidates they have put forward, they are keen to pinpoint what we're looking for so that they do not waste anybody's time in putting unsuitable candidates forward. I have also recommended Venquis to colleagues who are searching for their next role."
