Charlie Reynolds, Programme ManagerSouthwark Council
Venquis took the time to understand our complex needs and therefore were able to very quickly source a high-quality candidate.
Jack Perschke, Divisional Head of GovernmentATOS
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.
Nadira Hussain, Acting Head of ITTower Hamlets
I found the Women in IT event extremely interesting and engaging and there were very relevant points raised and discussed, with an opportunity to share best practice to improve on the common issues we are all experiencing. Venquis did a particularly great job in getting an equal representation of male colleagues to be present, which offered the correct balance, a different point of view and to promote the actions that will help remove some of the challenges.
Emma Marinos, Director of ModerniseSouthwark Council
I found the Women in IT event extremely engaging and there were very relevant topics discussed. It was good to hear Phil Pavitt’s experiences around some key issues and also the approaches he has taken. For example; his comments around the language of text in job descriptions was of real benefit and something we will be acting on in our organization.

How our authenticity helps your success.
Placing a higher value on authenticity will help increase the positive outcome of a project. At Vq, we help you to improve productivity and ensure the successful implementation of your projects. Authenticity by its very definition is not something that you can fake. It combines genuineness and originality and the result is the growth of trust and credibility between parties. At Venquis, we believe in creating authentic relationships with our clients and candidates. From experience, we know that this leads to more long-lasting partnerships and better results all round. For us, our authenticity is sparked by a genuine interest in what another person, project, or company is doing and by making sure that we keep our values (to be distinctive, team-spirited, ambitious and reassuring) at the heart of everything we do. That’s a pretty good starting point for ensuring we place the right people into the right projects, gearing everyone up for success from the outset. For clients, that means that we’ll take the time to properly understand where your challenges are. We won’t just hear what you have to say, we’ll actively listen. As a result, we often come up with innovative solutions that clients haven’t even considered. Our agile way of thinking allows us to be flexible, regardless of location, scale or complexity, and to deliver change projects successfully across Europe. Our candidates are just as important to us. No matter where you’re based, we’ll take the time to get to know you and understand what’s important to you; whether that’s the culture of your future employer, the opportunity for flexible working or quite simply making the numbers work for you. We’ll take the time to search out the right roles and when it comes to interviewing, we’ll make sure you have all the information you need to perform at the top of your game. In short, we’ve got your back. Our stewardship encapsulates this authenticity. It captures our passion for what we do, and it means that we put purpose before profit. We mean what we say when we talk about being a force for good. The result? A team that is driven to put our clients’ and candidates’ needs first, ensuring the best possible solutions for you.
How purpose moves us
In our forties, humans instinctively look at their place in the world, question their intentions and become more cognisant of their impact….and my desire to be a positive force in the world has been integral to the launch and growth of Venquis as a business. So, what does this mean in practice? As a start, there are recycling posters made from recycled paper all around the Venquis office and we all recycle. We know that the train between our London and Munich offices takes about 10 winding hours – an appealing Agatha Christie-style adventure if you’re not in a hurry. Our company getaway is in Wales this year, no sunny destination for us if it will add 20% to our individual carbon footprints. The small things matter too; they indicate to me that our culture is one of putting purpose first, single-use plastic is frowned upon and company meals tend to be vegan. Volunteer days are commonplace, we have employee representatives on the Board, genuine employee ownership and equal opportunities are at our core. If you’re a client you will have experienced our knowledgeable Venquis consultants asking about your environmental policies, diversity, governance and sustainability practices. Our recruiters are proud of their clients and work with you to help your businesses appeal to their candidates. And our candidates now want to know what your sustainability policy is and what sort of impact your business has on the planet. Not everyone’s stated aim is to be carbon positive by 2030 but whatever yours is we can help attract candidates that will share and develop it. The last thing any of our candidates want is to join a company and then discover its fast-growing data service is actually being used to collect data on individuals and infringe civil liberties in an oppressive regime. Integrating stewardship into our business is challenging and Venquis definitely hasn’t perfected it. Many of our employees worry about their rent (January is a long month!) and they want the same opportunities to travel that their parents had. Our challenge as an employer is to balance employee needs with those of the planet, to make work really fulfilling, fun and rewarding while improving the world around us. Bearing in mind that any company is a group of individuals brought together for a common purpose why not make that purpose more than just profit? - Barnaby Parker, Executive Chairman
What is Stewardship?
At Venquis we have always put purpose at the heart of everything we do. Since our founding, we have recognised that how we behave as a business transformation specialist has a part to play in how transformational that change can be for the environment and communities that we and our clients operate in. The creation of our values and making sure they were embedded in everything we did from day one both internally and externally was an important part of this, and we have always made sure that those values have remained at the heart of anything we do. Of course, our approach has evolved over the years and as we grew, we realised that there were a number of different initiatives underway in the business which all had a common purpose; to make us better in some way – whether it was how we engaged with clients, or introducing a flexible working policy or ensuring that our technology was cutting edge. By pulling these all together our stewardship programme was born. The programme very simply covers five core areas: governance (processes and regulation), workplace (employee engagement), clients (the service we offer and how we offer it), community (how we engage with the community we work within) and environment (our impact and how we mitigate it) and the programme remains underpinned by our values. Having these distinct areas makes sure that no part of the business is overlooked or falls behind. What has it done for us? By pulling together these areas under the umbrella of stewardship, it has provided us with a structured framework to develop against. Internally the launch of the programme has allowed for more cohesive conversations within the company around certain topics, helping people understand how these projects fit against the bigger picture. The creation of the programme has also allowed us the opportunity to examine how we approach everything we do. The upshot has been, better processes and a more disciplined approach on reviewing procedures and the like, as well as moving us forwards on initiatives that benefit our staff and the communities around as alike. Externally it provides a great opportunity to strengthen our rapport with clients. As the global spotlight increasingly highlights issues that fall within the stewardship remit such as equal pay, global warming, and equality, there are many challenges that all companies are facing whatever the industry. This provides a chance for knowledge sharing and genuine partnerships being forged through expertise. It’s opened up new conversations with clients and has given us opportunities to learn from their initiatives too. Faster, Better, Smarter In everything we do and our stewardship programme has become a key ingredient in helping us to do that. We are still on a journey and the programme will keep on evolving. It can of course be challenging at times but it’s without a doubt been rewarding too and a worthwhile experience that we would recommend to any company thinking of taking the plunge.
