Staffing solutions firm Venquis provides more job opportunities in Leicester
(Press release 11/5/2022)
Further establishing their position in the East Midlands, Venquis is bringing more jobs to Leicester. Since their new office was set up at Colton Square, the staffing solutions firm has expanded. Opening an office in Leicester has enabled the company to experience 80% growth year on year.
Venquis provides global Staffing Solutions for businesses going through digital transformation, and that market right now is booming.
Leicesterians at the core
The city was a natural frontrunner in the UK for the choice of location for one of two new European Talent Delivery Centres for Venquis. Nuremberg, Germany was the choice of the second and opened in March 2022. Venquis also have established offices in London, Copenhagen, Amsterdam and Munich.
Leicester beat other contenders not only due to its location but also for the quality and diversity of talent it could offer. Leicester is a centre of customer service excellence and skilled advisors. And the vast talent pool has paid off. So much so that over a quarter (27%) of staff have been promoted so far this year.
Successful new joiners to the company have come from a variety of backgrounds, and Talent Delivery Consultants at Venquis often enjoy a better work-life balance and have access to excellent career development opportunities. They are responsible for sourcing and selecting candidates for a range of clients, from start-ups and scale-ups to grown-up businesses across the globe.
Ciaran Hudson, who joined the Leicester office in September 2021 explains, “Venquis is an expanding and exciting business. Being surrounded by motivated & driven people at all levels of management that had progressed through the company really appealed to me.”
As Ella North, People and Culture Manager at Venquis explains, “This wouldn’t be possible without the people that have joined us since we opened up our hub here in Leicester. We have grown by 109%. We currently have 30 employees and will grow to a team of 80 by the end of the year.”
With good transport links to London and local airports, Leicester is the perfect location for European staff to visit.
Leicester is a thriving digital and business hub. The city is also the best-positioned city for economic growth in the East Midlands, according to The Demos-PwC Good Growth for Cities Index 2022. The index found that the city ranked above average for work-life balance and income distribution. Leicester achieved a ranking of 14th out of 50 and is closely followed by Derby and Nottingham.
Venquis looks forward to supporting the Leicester community and local charities. They have ambitious growth plans and aim to be the number one employer of choice in the area.
Larger office space this year
Colton Square is Leicester’s principal office location, with easy access to all the main amenities and is one of the reasons why Venquis selected the location for their Leicester office.
“Two Colton Square was a no-brainer. We loved the feeling of being in one of Leicester’s renowned historic landmarks – whilst having a home in a modern and attractive building. The proximity to the centre and the train station is a big bonus. And, let’s not forget the great universities within easy reach too.” says Steve Garner, Managing Director of Venquis.
Venquis is currently finalising a deal on a larger office space in the city. So, the staffing solutions firm is firmly here in Leicester to stay!
