Amazing office, fab starting salaries + commission and no shift work! Looking forward to meeting the whole company at Vestival later this month

    Solid business, strong team and lots of opportunity

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    I've worked in the recruitment sector for over 15 years, and Venquis is the most progressive business. Management has a genuine appetite for changing everything that makes the client, the candidate and the employee journey better - budgets back it up, and a great team make it happen. It's a nice place to work.

    Cons

    Transformation moves fast, so do our clients, and so do we. So if you find it difficult to embrace change and do things differently, it will be a tricky environment.

    An established organisation in an exciting market that recognises and places its people at the forefront of everything. Very tech savvy with a modern view of the way people want to work and has remained agile in order to maximise opportunities as and when they present themselves.

    Cons

    In the process of refining it's proposition with a rebrand to come which will provide a refresh and energy to move to the next level

    An amazing restructure with a unique proposition - Sales & Delivery

    Sep 3, 2019 - Senior Client Solution Consultant in London, England
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - The UK Sales Director who bleeds positivity into his sales/delivery teams by really "leading by example" and constantly coaching and developing staff. - Personally speaking, having been here for almost 4.5 years I've seen the evolution of the Venquis "transformation" really positioning ourselves as not just a recruiter but a top partner across Change and Transformation and I (as have others) have learnt a lot during this change. - New restructure which allows us to target ourselves on being focused on either two directions "Sales" or "Delivery" with a clear 180 specialised vision in providing our customers with the best possible service. Having seen the model gradually mature I'm noticing careers develop not just professionally but also financially. - if your looking for a company with a wealth of accounts and a proven model which allows you to target your career then look no further.

    Cons

    Change can be hard to achieve so be patient with some people
