    I worked at Venquis full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Fruit basket on a weekly basis

    Cons

    Absolutely loved these 5 star reviews made up by the marketing team. You can easily find out the truth though if you filter for "lowest rating"- that this a terrible company. Toxic culture, favoritism, no real leadership with a flavor of discrimination. (just to mention a few) Terrible commission structure. Most of the good consultants left already, the only thing that is high there is the stuff turn over. Completely agree with one of the previous reviews: " If you take pride in your work and yourself - do not even consider this place".

    Thank you for taking the time to leave a review and I'm sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your time at Venquis. We know that we won't always get it right for everyone but feedback helps us understand what we need to address. Please be assured that marketing don't write reviews, we believe that everyone should have a chance to speak for themselves. We aim to make our commission structures as competitive and fair as possible and review them on a regular basis to ensure our consultants are justly rewarded for all the hard work they put in. To say that all the good consultants have left is unfair to those who are doing amazing things in the business in these challenging times. We have a dedicated team, who are working above and beyond at the moment, many of whom are working in totally different ways to what they are used to. What they are managing to achieve is testament to the strength of our consultants and the operations staff that support them.

    Pros

    - Great 12 week academy done by James giving you the best opportunity to start your career in recruitment. - Fun working culture, everyone in the office is more than happy to answer any questions. - Regular meetings or 'catch ups' to help personal development and solve any challenges.

    Cons

    - Long working hours, but that is typical of the industry. - With rapid growth there are a lot of change and improvement which takes time to adapt to.

    Pros

    The culture is excellent, everyone is willing to help and there is always a buz in the office. The company is expanding and have excellent opportunities for staff to grow. The accadamy done by James is excellent I have been involved in sales for over 10 years and its the best training I've had.

I worked in the Bristol office with Scott as my manager who was excellent always there the help.

    Cons

    No cons for me unfortunately my health took a turn and was not able to give my full energy to the company so I decided to step down but they were very supportive

    I worked at Venquis full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Seems like a lot of structure, you will come to find this is extremely false, very unfortunate being my first role as a Recruiter

    Cons

    Poor management Narcissistic environment which unfortunately encourages sexism and racism Bad comission structure also Personally would not recommend for a Recruiter looking to break the industry. I have moved to another Recruitment firm offering so much more for a trainee

    I worked at Venquis full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The training at Venquis was the most important starting block when joining as i was not from recruitment. They not only spend a great deal of money on training which shows, but also they spend a great amount of time in training individuals to go from good to great. The Brand and Vision is fantastic. The company knows exactly who they want to be and exactly where it wants to be. This gives a hug platform for individuals to grown and reach personal goals, by supporting said growth and given the opportunity to use the platform to their advantage. The people at Venquis are all amazing and was sad to see them go. The floor is open with access to everyone of all seniority. The team leaders and directors really do want you to progress and give you all the support needed to get there and achieve anything you want, as long as you are willing to put the effort in. The socials are great, there is a huge team spirit and its a lot of fun. Put in the work and the rewards will come.

    Cons

    On busy times it can be long hours but this is expected and you get out what you put in.

    Can't say enough good things about the business. Great culture, awesome leadership team, cutting edge technology (incl everyone on laptops), supporting and challenging training academy, inspiring colleagues, fab rewards and most of all, a huge load of fun. Everything i wanted from my employer and then some...

    Cons

    Business is growing so fast that you need to be as equally ambitious and driven. No room for wall flowers here!
