The service from Venquis has always been of a very high level with all vacancies filled within 4 weeks which is an impressive achievement within the London Insurance Market. In 2013 we entered a Managed Agency relationship with Venquis, giving Venquis exclusive access to Business Change vacancies reducing our overall costs of recruitment and further leveraging the great service that Venquis provide.
Venquis are a proactive recruitment company who have worked hard to become a preferred supplier. They attract quality professionals in both the contract and permanent positions and understand their chosen business areas well. Most important to me is their communication approach, which is open, available but never overbearing. They are also trustworthy and recognise the value of long-term relationships.
ATOS has been recruiting Technology & Business Change candidates from Venquis for many years and the service has always been of a very high level. Venquis has introduced us to some exceptional people. As a further indication of my overall satisfaction with Venquis I have recommended Venquis to various personal contacts who have always been delighted with their tailored approach and results.
Venquis likes to celebrate the important milestones in life, big or small. As it’s Black History Month in the UK, it’s a great opportunity to recognise the importance of diversity and the contribution Black Britons have made to our society. We’ve made positive progress in the UK since the virtually unrecognised contribution of individuals like Ignatius Sancho (first known black British voter), Mary Seacole in the Crimean War to the celebrated renown of Baroness Lawrence, Sir Mo Farah, Idris Elba, Zadie Smith amongst many others in their respected fields. Along the way, we’ve learned that standing up for who we are and believing that we deserve more, usually gives us more. However, there is still a way to go. Every organisation has the responsibility to make sure that they are doing what they can to represent all ethnicities and give equal opportunity to progress. At Venquis, I’m lucky to work for a company that takes pride in growing a diverse culture and all the benefits that bring. What also makes it great is that we have people from every walk of life. We work in a meritocratic environment where individuals from any background feel empowered enough to step forward, speak up and put their unique viewpoint on the table. We know that the more diverse we are, the stronger we grow, and the better we serve our clients. That makes Venquis a great place to work. Nevertheless, until it becomes the norm, events like Black History Month must be celebrated to keep the conversation going. - Gerrard Samuels, Delivery Consultant at Venquis.
It’s World Mental Health Day and this year the focus is on stress. According to a recent YouGov survey a staggering 93% of young adults surveyed had experienced feeling overwhelmed or unable to cope in the past year. The recruitment industry is full of young people and Venquis is certainly no exception. On top of that we are a high performance sales environment and that too comes with its stresses. Getting and staying ‘Fit for Work’ With this in mind, two years ago we introduced our Fit for Work scheme as we strongly believe that healthy bodies and minds create a productive and engaged sales floor. We want each and every one of our employees to be the best version of themselves and over the last year we have offered a variety of activities to help them achieve that. There’s something for everyone – whether you prefer a high energy workout at PT session or a more reflective yoga class to reset your mind and focus for the day. There’s free fruit always available in the office and we’ve bring in external speakers to give lunch-time talks on a wide range of topics including sleep, nutrition and tactics to handle stress. All our offices take part in annual company runs; some of us are faster than others but everyone makes it to the finishing line and having fun is what it’s all about. We also have a Sports Day each summer. It’s a great way to get everyone outside and reconnect away from the daily routine and everyone returns invigorated and up for the challenge of the job. Encouragingly we’ve noticed an increasing number of our clients also taking a much more open stance on the topic of mental health. Many of them now run regular workshops and forums available to all employees. Conversations in the workplace around mental health issues are also much easier to have these days, largely due to the excellent media coverage, improving our understanding of the topic and well respected celebrities being honest about their experiences. Fit for Work may be small steps in tackling a big issue and we don’t presume that we can take away a person’s anxieties (other than work-related ones) but if we’ve provided individuals with different outlets to combat the stresses they face then we may have played a small part in helping colleagues deal with their challenges, whilst at the same time creating a healthy work environment.
Danish-based A.P. Møller Maersk, the largest container ship and vessel operator in the world, worked with Venquis to create streamlined communications for 76 IT divisions across the globe. In order to do this, one single capability was built which can be accessed by all terminals. Head of IT and programme management, Doug Martin, had the following to say: “Venquis were responsible for sourcing and placing all the members of a new Service Management function within my current company. The quality and professionalism of the staff recruited, is testament to the hard work and dedication shown by Venquis. They have managed to put together a dynamic team of high functioning SMEs which is having a tangible, positive impact on our company. While placing individuals which work well collaboratively in a team environment.” Closeness is key A.P Moller Maersk worked closely with Jack Grimes, Venquis Sales Director, to support the integration by hiring the right people for the right roles. The roles consisted of, to mention a few, developers, architects, testers and designers. To ensure quality and consistency, the Venquis team relocated to the Netherlands for 3 months to support A.P. Møller Maersk directly from their head offices. We have placed 41 candidates in 6-months.
