    I worked at Venquis full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I recently left Venquis having spent 4.5 amazing years working with the business! I started there as a Consultant in 2012 with 1.5 yrs experience in Australia thinking I knew what recruitment was all about! Little did I know that I had just joined a small team of outstanding practitioners with a vision of global growth and expansion!

    Over my time I was promoted almost every year, supported by my manager and directors, had some great friends and earned more money than I ever thought possible!

    The one stand out aspect about Venquis I would like to share is the purely entrepreneurial spirit... In all my time there i was NEVER told 'no' to an idea and was encouraged to write business plans, support my ideas and RUN WITH THEM!

    When I left to set up my own business, I was given a handshake and told that if I ever need support then it is there (this was from the owners and the whole team of consultants too)

    Cons

    As any business grows it is 100% certain that people will come and go and not everyone is happy all of the time! It is a real shame that some people have written poor reviews however I think it is fair to say that none of these people had the right attitude needed to compete with a company built on a high performance culture!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and you will know doubt achieve the vision to be the worlds #1 in Business Transformation.

    I worked at Venquis full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I joined VQ 2.5 years ago and was provided with a unique opportunity to build and grow a new division from the very beginning. If you're looking for a company that allows you to be creative, ambitious and in control of your own career path, then VQ is the company for you. I was given a great platform to build a great team and was lucky enough to have great support along the way. A balance of competitive and talented consultants with a sharp and knowledgable Board. I left to start my own journey, but very aware that this wouldn't have been a possibility without my time here.

    Cons

    As the previous review mentions 'This is recruitment, you need to be able to put in the hard work to get the rewards, like everywhere else! there is no entitlement to success...but the rewards & environment are great here' - Couldn't agree more!

    Advice to Management

    Keep driving your vision forwards!

    Thank you for the excellent (and honest!) review. We have no doubt that you will continue to be successful in the new direction you have chosen and wish you the very best of luck. Keep in touch!

    I have been working at Venquis full-time

    Pros

    Reviews are about helping others make decisions about jobs and companies not a platform for lies or a tool for personal vendetta.

    I don't usually write reviews, but in light of the recent negative ones I've read about Venquis, I've decided to share my experience.

    To those genuinely interested in knowing more about Venquis, I have been working here for the last few years. Venquis offers a platform for success for anyone with the right Will, Attitude and Mindset!

    In the past years, I have watched consultants, both with or without experience, joining and making the most out of the opportunity, having a real impact on the business as well as their personal career & earnings. It doesn't matter how long you've been here, everyone have the same opportunity, it's all about who wants it the most.

    The CEO & MD are very much involved & hands on unlike other businesses I know of. They do care about people & have a strong vision for the business and a growth plan in place which means plenty of opportunities are available in sales, Management, setting up & owning new areas from scratch...

    Having worked for different companies in the past, my criteria to benchmark an employer are:

    - The company (Vision, growth plans, culture, Leadership, people)
    - The opportunity (clients, reputation)
    - Potential earnings / commission scheme
    - Clear career paths
    - Success stories
    - Fun

    So far, Venquis have been ticking all the boxes for me !

    Cons

    This is recruitment, you need to be able to put in the hard work to get the rewards, like everywhere else! there is no entitlement to success...but the rewards & environment are great here

    Advice to Management

    We are on a Journey, some will make it and some others won't...focus on the ones (good majority) who believe in our Vision & Hire People who share our values and are looking to be part of our success

    Pros

    Inspiring people, worthwhile vision and some awesome clients. Everyone works hard and is well rewarded.

    Cons

    Who wouldn't want a bit more money! In all seriousness I feel really well looked after at Venquis and i trust the management (how many companies take every single employee away for an all expenses paid weekend every year?)

    Advice to Management

    Ignore the negative reviews!

    Pros

    iam glad i got the chance to work for Venquis. Coming from another Recruitment agency i learned what it means to be a recruiter here.
    Great, hardworking culture! Everybody is contributing to the big picture, Venquis as a company that is, and to earn money ofcourse. Everybody is on the same page and you can feel that every day you walk into the office.
    The academy, as one of the best on the market and a good commission sheme sealed the deal for me.

    Cons

    Working hours and a thought business environment!
    Totally worth if youre able to work on yourself .

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what youre doing! Its great and i love to be a part of it.
