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.
Back in 2011, I was one of the first employees at Venquis when we were just a start-up of 8 people in a small office. I had a brilliant couple of years specialising in Investment Management as a 360 consultant before deciding to move out to the UAE, where I continued to work in the financial services space for 6 years. Now I am back in the UK with my family and it is also exciting to be back at Venquis. All the growth and expansion that has happened over the past 7 years, Venquis looks like a completely different organisation to the start-up I knew back in 2011! Steve Garner, our MD kept in touch with me, and I am delighted to be working now as part of the Benelux Client Solutions Team in a client-facing role. Venquis has evolved into a digital business with a consultancy style set-up, and it’s this forward-thinking environment which is part of the reason I joined in the first place. It gives me the freedom to work exclusively on the business development side of recruitment, which is where my strengths are. The model of sales and delivery working closely together creates a collaborative environment and means I can pitch large scale complex solutions to clients, that I would not be able to manage as a 360 consultant. I have the opportunity to work from anywhere too, which is great as my clients are based mainly in the Netherlands, and it also gives me the flexibility to balance my family life. I’ve already been involved in external sales training which has been useful to implement into my business development, and I’m really excited about what the future holds for me here! Are you highly driven and want to play a huge role in a forward-thinking and exciting business? Join us today.
This year has been quite a year, throwing up a few unexpected challenges for us all. Back in March we found our lives changing literally overnight. Not least the way we worked, not having the freedom to see family and friends whenever we wanted and keeping our food cupboards stocked. Some of us found ourselves facing the challenge of being furloughed, many of us had to learn how to keep working closely with colleagues that were now only visible through a screen. All of us have had to learn to adapt. Our team at Venquis has been amazing, embracing the challenges thrown up and supporting each other through the tough parts. The Venquis culture has always been hugely important to our success and its strength has shone through when it has really counted. That resilience has produced some great successes and we have added new clients, new locations, and new colleagues over the last few months. There has been some fun along the way too – Joshua Djumpah’s bootcamp, Kirsty McIntyres’ virtual running club, and even managing an in-person Sports Day. We’ve always recognised the importance of our Fit for Work programme in keeping us physically and mentally healthy, but it’s been especially important this year and we’ll continue to find ways to keep us all healthy and strong over the winter months. In recognition of all that’s gone on this year and as a big ‘thank you’ for all the hard work that the team has put in, last Friday was our ‘Rejuvenation Day’. It was a chance for everyone to have a day off, relax and do something for themselves in readiness for a busy last quarter. We may still live in a world filled with uncertainty but one thing’s for sure, we will keep supporting each other at Venquis in whatever ways we can.
I've been with Venquis for over a year now. I started my career at our headquarters in London and managed the internal recruitment for our German office in Munich, as a talent acquisition consultant. I developed a strategy to make our interview process diverse, speedy and more efficient and have successfully hired multiple consultants at all levels into our brilliant DACH business. Shortly before another trip to Munich in February 2020, I visited my family in Germany. I come from a small town near Aachen and celebrated a festival there for a few days until I got the shocking news that the Corona-Virus had spread there. It wasn’t possible to return to London and I had to cancel my trip to Munich – nightmare, as I had to spend 14 days in quarantine with my parents! 3 months later and we were still in lockdown. Venquis has always had a vision to be a digital business with consultants working from anywhere in the world and the pandemic accelerated these plans. I used this opportunity in two ways: I visited a friend in Nantes, France, after the borders were finally re-opened. We had a couple of nice days on the beach at St. Malo & Mont St. Michele and the rest of the days I worked as normal from her apartment. Secondly, I decided to move back to Germany after the lockdown period. Not to Munich where we have an office, but to Cologne. It’s where a lot of my friends and family are and the food is a lot better than the UK... Despite the working from home option, I wasn't sure whether this would work for Venquis because it’s not close to one of our office hubs. In an open discussion with my manager and our HR manager, there were no concerns or restrictions. On the contrary, they understood I could be just as productive in Cologne and fully supported my decision. In two weeks I’m moving to my own apartment in Cologne. In the meantime, I’m enjoying the quiet of working from home and spending time with my family, who are very happy to have me back near them.

In 2015, PPL disrupted the insurance industry by developing a digital e-placing platform that removed a previous paper trail process for all brokers and insurers in the London Market. The system works as a single market solution and found new innovative ways to do things - such as creating a digital information flow audit trial, which covered all classes of risk placed in the London Insurance Market. "Venquis have been an integral partner to PPL since our inception. Venquis really understand the type of person that works well in the unique PPL team. Over the last 5 years they have provided a number of great resources with a wide range of skills that have been crucial to the growth of the company." - Colin O’Malley, Head of Operations, PPL An outsourced solution that matched the mission PPL took advantage of Venquis’s thorough screening technology and a fully tailored outsourced solution to deliver the platform based on their requirements. From the outset, Venquis was able to take charge of sourcing all of the vital skillset’s and the specialists placed. These included Business Analysts, Testers, Architects, Relationship Managers and Product Owners. Currently, the platform is being used by over 360 market firms and has allowed insurers and brokers to work together remotely. The Venquis specialists accounted for 60-70% of the project task force, some which have been retained to support PPL on building an updated version of the platform in an agile delivery. This will support insurers and brokers to reduce costs and provided a faster placement of complex risks and increase transparency – a project Venquis continues to support.
