    I worked at Venquis full-time

    Pros

    Venquis was the best place I could have started my recruitment career, right from day one I was given the training, support and guidance to be successful. There are several strong and successful leaders in the company who will take time out of their day to give you whatever help you need to break down your barriers to being successful. Everyone in the company is working towards a communal goal, nobody is in competition...

    I have been working at Venquis full-time

    Pros

    This company has by far the best working atmosphere I've experienced to date in my career & there is a real sense that tangible achievements will result from your efforts.

    Cons

    As a company grows it experiences the usual 'growing pains' so sometimes processes are not slick as they might otherwise be, but this can be expected of any company of this size and age so doesn't take away from the overall positives in any meaningful way

    I have been working at Venquis full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Hard work and originality are rewarded and recognised.... it's what was promised when I interviewed to join the business in 2018, and has definitely been the case - I was promoted after 7 months. We all join businesses for different reasons, mine is always to make a genuine difference.. it's what makes me proud... and at Venquis you have the autonomy and platform to do things better. I think the environment suits dynamic,...

    Cons

    Venquis turns 8 years old this month - which makes us a young, agile, dynamic business, but we are still evolving and working on tightening up internal processes and procedures for example.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to challenge the norm - it's an exciting journey!

    Pros

    Having been recently promoted i'm very excited about the next stage of my career. Got loads to learn but lots of support available to help me be successful.

    Cons

    Fast growth expectations means hardwork and constant improvement. Not right for everyone but i love all the challenges and responsibilities.

    Advice to Management

    Internal comms could be better, can we get a VQ newsletter?

    I have been working at Venquis full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    - From having no recruitment experience and coming straight out of uni, I couldn't have landed at a better company. Venquis offer all new joiners a 13-week training academy where you are taught how to recruit properly, both candidate and client side. - Clear criteria for progression / promotion. With only 2 1/2 years' experience, I am now trusted to manage a team. - Excellent commission structure - you have the opportunity...

    Cons

    - Long working day - Technology / Laptops slow to be updated, equipment a bit outdated.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain the expansion plans and keep driving towards the goal. Invest in new laptops for the whole business. Encourage work from home.

    I have been working at Venquis full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    The people are really great, everyone gets along well, we have loads of fun and I think clients/ candidates really benefit from the culture. A few misfits have recently left the business giving the sales floor a positive boost and allowing us to get on with the plan/ vision (which makes perfect sense to me) Training and support is exceptional- everyone really wants you to succeed. The commission scheme is THE BEST I’m...

    I have been working at Venquis full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have been hugely impressed by Venquis as a company since I joined last year to open their South West Regional office. This company is at the forefront of advances in recruitment from a technology perspective but maintains the personal values and morals which can be somewhat lost within the industry in 2019. The support I have had from Steve Garner and our London Headquarters has been exceptional. They have given me...

    I really cannot fault anything about Venquis' approach. This is an ambitious company which has the right tools and the right people to convert these ideas into reality.

    I worked at Venquis full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    I have worked at Venquis for nearly 3 years and one of the things that I have appreciated the most is the culture. Venquis has worked hard to build a great internal brand and strong culture. The company has a flat structure, which means the environment is very open and honest. Operations and Sales work very closely together meaning that everyone is always offering help and support, enabling everyone to do their jobs to...

    Cons

    Sales consultants are encouraged to be out of the office meeting candidates and clients, so sometime the office can feel quiet.

    I have been working at Venquis full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    My journey so far at Venquis has been the most productive 6 months I’ve had in my career. I had been advised by friends (who already have a career in recruitment) for a few years to join to the industry and finally made the jump. I have a sales background and was already in a job but I was just cruising and probably quite bored, I was looking for a fast paced sales environment where I could learn quickly through...
