Tom is an excellent recruiter that take time to link with his candidates extremely well and foresee opportunities to link with potentials of the Business market. I had the opportunity to get to know Tom as being candidate on a recruitment phase and as well as a hiring manager. It’s an absolute pleasure to work with Tom and I would recommend him and Venquis for further recruitment phase within our company.

My journey at Venquis
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.

How PPL turned week-long processes into minutes for 360 market firms
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.

Things you might not know about remote working
1) In the Thesaurus remote also means distant, far-flung, isolated, lonely, obscure, outlying and secluded. 2) People only started commuting to their work or office spaces in the 1800s, before then everyone worked in their own homes (as butchers, candlestick makers, blacksmiths etc.) 3) The first-ever remote worker was St Paul of Thebes (born 227 AD). He lived in the mountains of this desert in a cave near a clear spring and a palm tree. The leaves provided him with clothing and the fruit of which provided him with his only source of food until he was 43 years old. Then a raven started bringing him half a loaf of bread daily. He would remain in that cave for the rest of his life, almost a hundred years. 4) In the TV sitcom pilot called Remotely Working, there are five quirky diverse millennials, none of whom “has a personal life that is even remotely working.” 5) Pre-Coronavirus there were more remote workers in the Netherlands than anywhere else (14% versus 4% in the UK). 6) Companies allowing remote work to have 25% lower employee turnover than those that don’t. 7) The record number of jobs held concurrently by a remote worker is 23 (this has been hard to prove, presumably as they have been busy). 8) The most remote place on earth is most likely to be the volcanic island of Tristan da Cunha in the South Atlantic boasts a population of 258 people with only nine different last names. 9) Napoleon Bonaparte tried remote working when he exiled to the island of Elba, he couldn’t lead an army remotely and escaped to France in early 1815 before his crushing defeat at Waterloo by the Duke of Wellington on June 18, 1815. Napoleon subsequently exiled to the island of Saint Helena off the coast of Africa. 10) You could call your workforce distributed and avoid all these problems!
