    Best German speaking Team in the City!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsI chose Venquis over other companies as it was evident to me throughout the interview process that the company is on a journey, especially when it comes to international expansion. From my perspective, the main USP revolved around having a German speaking team which wants to be a specialist in the market in which it operates and not diluting its focus in being 'too thinly spread' geographically and thematically. In addition, there is genuine backing from the powers that be to actually fly Consultants out to Germany so as to build relationships with clients in person, and we now visit the Motherland every month!

    ConsWe didn't win the City Football Challenge this year!

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep hiring for the German team!

    "One of a kind"

    Senior Consultant (Current Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsI joined Venquis in 2012 as a Trainee Recruitment Consultant after 10 years in the Royal Marines. After and intensive period of training and getting to know the industry I moved onto the Financial Services contract desk. Venquis then gave me the platform and guidance to build my own client base and candidate network within my specific niche. The ongoing support and recognition you receive at Venquis is 2nd to none and the team is one of the best I have worked in

    ConsOur Champagne fridge is a little empty due to the successes we are having!!!!!!!!

    Advice to Senior ManagementTable football. More champagne!!!

    Glassdoor review of my current employer

    Recruitment Consultant (Current Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsGreat place to work! It's a target driven environment without the usual pressure you would expect. Venquis are willing to take people on with little to no experience and nurture them. You are given the opportunity to develop your own client base giving you a real sense of ownership. A great bunch to work with and always a crowd having a drink after work.

    ConsAs with any sales role the base is quite low. But at Venquis the commission scheme is very good, so once you are up and running the sky is the limit.

    Friendly and supportive

    Consultant (Current Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsI have been here for a good few months and can certainly say I am happy here. I joined without having any previous experience as a recruiter before and have been warned by others before that recruitment can be a tough and back-stabbing environment. However, none of this applies at Venquis - in fact, everyone is very friendly and supportive. As for the training I received? I couldn't have asked for better. The opportunity to grow and learn here is endless and I know I'll have all the support I'll need. It's also great hearing from candidates that they genuinely appreciate our services.

    ConsEveryone keeps offering chocolate/naughty snacks around

    Invest in their talent

    Consultant (Current Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsOne to one and group coaching is given to all new recruiters in the 'Venquis Training Academy' with training on how to become a specialist in your market, and become a full 360 recruiter.
    Lots of team spirit, supportive and positive atmosphere, always pushing to succeed and be the best.
    Hard work is not only rewarded, but also respected.
    Everyone is interesting, has their own style, and something about them.

    ConsRelatively new company (around 3 years old) - growing quickly, which makes the future uncertain

    Fantastic people, professional environment and a great place to work.

    Consultant (Current Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsVenquis gave me the opportunity to start a career at the later stages of my life. I came in with no experience at all and they have built me up to the point where I am earning more than I was as a professional footballer. Great people with a vibrant atmosphere which doesnt sacrifce enjoyment for hardwork, it maintains a healthy balance between making work enjoyable and challenging. A lot of the time you dont realise how hard you are working due to the people around you and the vibrant working environment. A company where they invest in staff and the Venquis acadamy is well on the way to making many successful consultants.

    ConsThe only challenge is the internal turmoil experienced during the first few months, where you feel uncomfortable because you a consious of how much you dont understand but once you have over come this the only way is up.

    Senior Consultant (Current Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsGreat atmosphere. Was laughing from day one with all the great people around me. Extremely welcoming environment.
    Database is incredibly efficient and accurate and has sensible measures in place to ensure it will stay this way.
    All software is up to date and works without any issues.
    CEO is incredibly well-networked.
    Located in a great part of the City.
    Fun wrap up sales meeting each Friday afternoon.

    ConsNone yet - can't think of anything that the company should be doing that it's not already.

    ProsVenquis is a fast growth company which has grown a huge amount in the past 3 years. It's a fun, exciting, fast-paced environment to work in and I'm looking forward to the future and helping it succeed.

    If you are looking to build an empire and have an impact, this is the right place for you!

    Senior Consultant (Former Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsVenquis is a great company. They have focussed on their values and culture to make sure you are given free rein to deliver and make your mark. If you are looking for somewhere you can be part of a team, impact the market, company and your pocket, this is the right company for you!

    ConsVenquis is not a company for someone to sit back and relax; you need to be driven and ready to work hard, however, the rewards are worth it.
