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.
I’m on Alcatraz island in San Francisco soaking up the sun and all the history of this incredible place, imagining what life as an inmate must have been like when my phone rings, it’s Kirsty from work back in London; “Tom.. you won”! 5 years ago, as a recent graduate with a great deal of enthusiasm and in all honesty, little else, I walked into a small office above a Tesco in Trafalgar Square on my first day as a trainee recruitment consultant at Venquis. The news I’ve just received means that back in London, I’ve just been named the Best Permanent Recruitment Consultant for 2019 at the Global Recruiter Magazine Awards, now that is pretty awesome! My life has changed beyond recognition since that summer in 2013. I’ve worked harder than I’ve ever imagined possible, learned and developed daily which has rewarded me with countless incredible moments. This includes relocating to live in Germany, generating bundles of fees with amazing clients and personally being in a stable financial position to achieve all my goals. This is all because I am part of a team, an incredibly focussed determined and ambitious team. I did not become top perm biller at Venquis by luck, the business has not grown to a £50m T/O by chance. We work hard, really hard but somehow it has never felt like that. Why? It’s because I want to do it, I want to play my part in helping Venquis achieve its goal of becoming the No.1 Business Transformation recruiter. I want my colleagues to all become successful and change their lives, I want more people to join us and experience the same lightspeed life changing experiences I have. I want to work as hard for the team as I know they all do for me; I want to come to work every day. My phone is buzzing like mad with congratulation messages from Venquis employees, they are all going out tonight to celebrate for me. That is an awesome team. I would highly recommend a career at Venquis, if you would like to hear more about our opportunities at Venquis in our UK, Benelux and Germany offices please contact Madina Ali and James Feeney or visit our Join Us page.

IIyas joined Venquis in March 2019 as an IT technician, supporting the Head of Business Systems within our busy Operations team. He is responsible for supporting our technological growth and development plans by focusing on successfully delivering the day-to-day IT requirements. He hopes to gain valuable work experience from working with us and we will in return support him to achieve his IT qualification to become a qualified Network Engineer. Ilyas was recruited from the Infrastructure Technician program at LDN Apprenticeships. They help talented young people to get their first job and start a career they love. Venquis decided to partner with LDN Apprenticeships because they believe in recruiting young people based on factors beyond a CV. They focus on identifying and developing young people who have energy, enthusiasm, willingness to learn, ability to take feedback and propensity to take action. What was it that attracted you to Venquis? I liked that Venquis was one of Europe’s fastest growing companies and I wanted to work for a company that could give invaluable experience. What skills have you gained? I have developed my interpersonal, problem solving and technical skills in my apprenticeship. I now have the confidence to communicate with staff across the business with ease and can think quickly to resolve most IT related issues. Being a part of the IT team has given me an insight into business IT infrastructure and the importance of maintaining business systems. What is your day to day job like? No day is the same at Venquis, the environment here is exciting and quite busy at times. My primary duties include maintenance of computer networks, hardware, software and dealing with IT requests around troubleshooting, diagnosing and resolving hardware issues. It is a great environment to work in and once I learnt the basics I was able to handle more responsibility with ease. What advice would you give someone considering joining Venquis through LDN Apprenticeships? I would say DO IT! I cannot recommend this apprenticeship enough, it has given me the opportunity to take the next step in my career to becoming a fully qualified Network Engineer. I’ve received a lot of guidance and training in my apprenticeship and I cannot thank Venquis enough for giving me this opportunity. If you would like to hear more about our opportunites at Venquis in UK, Benelux and Germany please contact James Feeney.
Celebrating its tenth anniversary in 2019, the Global Recruiter Industry Awards has an unprecedented reputation in the industry for recognising the best and the brightest. Which is why our very own Tom Fernandez-Buckley (TFB as he's affectionately known) has been shortlisted for 'Best Permanent Recruitment Consultant'. Tom joined us as a raw graduate in 2015... was seconded to our Munich office in 2017 (he grabbed the opportunity and moved within a week)... and built out a whole new market from scratch (data intelligence), despite not speaking German. The now fully fluent German speaking Tom has built an incredible business in Munich where today he can proudly stake a claim for being the go-to person for data intelligence in the region. Tom has been our top permanent biller 2017 and 2018, and his gregarious nature and willingness to help and develop his colleagues means he is one of the most popular employees in the business. Best of luck TFB - from everyone at Venquis! The tenth annual Global Recruiter Awards will be presented in London in June. Congratulations to all the shortlisted companies this year. We’re looking forward to a great evening, celebrating achievements across the sector with our industry peers.
Wednesday 1st May 2019. 'Bristol Change Forum' evening event The guests 20 C-level executives of change and transformation within Bristol. The hosts Hargreaves Lansdown and Venquis, business transformation and technology change recruitment specialists. Location Hargreaves Lansdown, Bristol Our second Bristol Change Forum took place earlier this month at Hargreaves Lansdown impressive Harbourside office. The Forum saw a great mixture of existing Change members as well as some new faces who were attending for the first time. There was an interesting discussion and debates about the topic of ‘Open Banking – what it means to our industry and how we overcome it’. The evening began with an insightful presentation from Phil Cottis, Strategy Manager at Hargreaves Lansdown who discussed their current strategy around ‘Open Banking’, the use of data, as well as insights into innovations and changes in the market. A key topic that was deliberated on was ethical considerations, an area high on any organisations agenda. Examples of extensive due diligence, transparency and embedding a strong culture at all levels within the business were a theme across the discussion groups. There were great case studies about Amazon, Argos and Sky’s business models and what has worked and not worked in these instances. The main concerns that were discussed were around cost (time and money to comply), concerns over fraudulent activity when dealing with vast amounts of data or “messy data” when dealing with legacy systems. There was a great networking session amongst the Change Forum Members once the debate was over. Scott Murphy, our Regional Manager here at Venquis would personally like to thank Russell, Becca and Philip from Hargreaves Lansdown for helping to arrange this event and for their hospitality at such a great venue. We are already in discussion about the agenda/location for the next event so please feel free to get in touch on email@example.com should you be interested in attending. We look forward to seeing you all in Quarter 3! Business change and transformation specialists If you are looking to hire into your team, or looking for a new role, let us make it easy for you.
