What People Say About Us

“They pay high attention to getting to know the candidate and excel at keeping the candidate updated”

Mark HurtonFinancial Controller at Heatric

“My experience with Venture was certainly a refreshing one. I mainly dealt with Chloe who was very polite, knowledgeable, always quick to respond and extremely helpful. It was certainly a nice surprise to find Chloe replied to one of my emails on a Sunday, which I have never experience with another agency in the past! In the case that a client is offered a job they would usually say that the experience is positive, but I would say even if I wasn’t offered the position I would still fully recommend Venture as I believe they stand out compared with other recruitment agencies.”

Alex Cross B&Q, Management Accountant - North America

“I had been in contact with a number of recruiters, but Venture provided the best overall service. Ian seemed to take a genuine interest in me as a person, and in my needs, only bringing opportunities to me that he thought I would be interested in, rather than bombarding me with any and all jobs that came in. It was a breath of fresh air to deal with a recruiter who cares about the people they are placing, as well as the company they are recruiting for!”

Sean OszmanCommercial Finance Analyst, Farrow & Ball

“We had excellent service from Venture, they took the time to really understand the role and company which resulted in us seeing high calibre candidates.  They were extremely efficient and professional.”

Mandy GommHR Director, Steris Inc.

“Venture Recruitment Partners placed me in a new role in August 2014. They were very friendly and professional & I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.”

Charlotte Ahern Operations Accountant, Jaguar Land Rover

“I have worked with Venture both as an employer and contractor, and have always found them equally committed in both situations.  Through their wide range of contacts they are able to offer strong candidates when the market is buoyant, and to find good placements when the market is slow. I would not hesitate to recommend Venture to employers and contractors alike.”

Tim Bennett Interim Project Manager, KCI UK Holdings Ltd

“The service provided by Venture was perfect, the consultants matched by experience and expertise to an opportunity that not only enabled a seamless transition, but to one that has developed into a career enhancing opportunity.”

Simon StairsFinancial Controller, Morgan Contract Furniture

“When I met Venture they were very courteous and knowledgeable about the role. From the initial phone call to the acceptance of the role everything was carried out professionally, efficiently and in a very timely manner.  VR Partners helped me prepare for the interview with ease and seemed able to help with any concerns I had along the way.”

Liam Simmons Assistant Accountant, My Local Convenience Store

“It was a welcome breath of fresh air working with David. He really took the time to understand our business and the value that we place on cultural fit, and unlike so many other recruitment agencies he only sent through candidates that had a realistic chance of getting the job. The level of service that we received and the trust I have in David means that Venture will be the first port of call for any future recruitment.”

Dominik Stokes Group FP&A Manager - Twinings

“Having left a senior role in London and taken a couple of years off I then began to look for a new role in the local area.  Venture Recruitment Partners, and in particular David, identified an opportunity for me and opened the door for an initial 6 month placement. I am still with the same employer 18 months later in a role that I would not have identified without their assistance.  Thanks David and VRP. ”

Martin SevierSenior Finance Contractor, LV=

“Pleasure to work with David in my recent assignment. Very professional and supportive and worked diligently to keep me informed throughout the process. Would love to work again with him in future.”

Asif Anis Regional Finance Manager, Honeywell Control Systems

“Chris has helped me find the right people to fill a number of roles. These roles have been both ‘mainstream’ requiring him to recognise the best candidates from a potentially large pool and niche roles needing him to fully understand the brief and know where and how to access suitable candidates. Chris is easy to work with as he only puts forward appropriate CV’s of people he will have recently met and is never pushy. I would thoroughly recommend his services.”

Colin Ball Interim Head of Shared Services , Babcock International Group

“I highly recommend Chris to anyone who is looking for a very professional, helpful and friendly recruiter who listens to exactly what you are looking for and helps you find the most suitable job for you. Other recruiters only try to advertise the positions they have available even if that’s not what you are looking for! Chris listened to me from the start of my search and went a long way to find a company which was local and with a very nice culture. I have dealt with many recruiters since I qualified as an ACA accountant and I have to say that Chris has been the best so far, never pushy and I always felt comfortable and at ease around him. He even met me personally a couple of times for which I am very grateful. A big thank you to a Chris for all his help and for helping me find my current job which I really like! Best wishes and I won’t hesitate to contact you in the future if I ever wanted to move jobs again. Thanks again! Virginia.”

Virginia Rios Tax Associate, RSM

“Matt recently helped me find a new role. He was great! Highly recommended. Matt kept me informed during the whole process and made sure I had everything I needed to prepare myself for my new role. Thanks Matt!”

Tracy Jones Finance Manager, Amsafe

“Matt approached with me a new opportunity, which was exactly the right fit for me based on my current experience. Throughout the process Matt was extremely open and approachable and maintained an excellent bridge between myself and the employer to keep all parties informed of any developments whilst promoting the flexibility I needed to support my relocation. I would recommend Matt to anyone in the south looking for a new opportunity.”

Matt ProsserBusiness Partner, FatFace

“Matt and the team at Venture were outstanding throughout the whole of the recruitment process. Matt ensured I was updated with the progress of my applications, and always provided advice and feedback. If you are looking for a new finance role then I would definitely recommend you speak to Matt.”

Jackie GunnManagement Accountant, Paragon Bank

“Friendly, honest & professional service from start to finish (me getting a new job!).
I met Matt in person which made him (and Venture) stand out compared to other agencies who often hide behind a phone.
Would definitely use again if needed & highly recommend.
Thanks for your help Matt!”

Louisa Robbins Finance Manager, E&J Estates

“Having worked with Venture before in a personal capacity and being pleased with their service, when an unsuccessful attempt of a placement using another agency occurred I contacted Venture and Matt was able to assist putting two good quality candidates forward, one of whom was offered the position. Working with Matt for the first time, I found him very diligent with good communications (even outside of normal office hours, thanks!) when vacancies arise I will contact Matt again in future.”

Paul Charman Finance Director, Celador Radio Ltd

“Matt recently helped me to find a new role and was great throughout. From initial contact to the offer stages I found him engaging, available and helpful. Each interview stage was organised effectively, with a thought to my schedule and communicated clearly well in advance. He also offered helpful insight into the company, the people I’d be meeting & what to expect throughout the process.”

Tom Mitchell Senior Management Accountant, Thames Water

“Absolutely fantastic at what he does. Matt was always happy to take the time to explain to me the recruitment process of the company I was applying for, as well as continually keeping me updated on the progress and provided very helpful tips for the interviews which ultimately helped me get the first job that I applied for with him as my consultant. I’d highly recommend that anyone looking for a job in finance gets in contact with Matt.”

Dominic FishManagement Accountant, Trimline Ltd

“Awesome service from Matt starting with Skype then face to face interviews. Excellent communication throughout, in the evening too.
I would not hesitate in recommending Matt for a smooth glide into your next finance position, nothing was too much trouble, Matt is a valued member of the Venture team.
Thanks Matt, looking forward to starting my next challenge…”

Carolyn Stallard Management Accountant, Kinetico UK Ltd

Andrew ensured that the communication was always there throughout a complicated recruitment process, and swiftly answered any questions I had during key stages. Having dealt with a lot of recruitment agencies over the years, I found Venture to be extremely honest and professional in comparison.”

Dan Havers Operations Manager, Worthing Coaches
