We could write a lot of mumbo jumbo here about how we’re the best recruitment agency since sliced bread, but you’ve probably heard it all before, so here’s what you really need to know about us.
Where we started...
In 2014, our Managing Director Matt was bored of the never-ending corporate recruitment rat run. Matt and 4 ex-colleagues took a leap of faith… and with that, VIQU was born.
Where we are now...
We’re an IT & tech recruitment agency with over 25 members of staff spread across 2 offices in central Birmingham and Southampton. Our 2 teams comprise of experienced IT recruiters that have the knowledge and determination to give our clients and candidates great results whilst delivering a top-notch service.
We’ve always prioritised the quality of life our clients, candidates and team have, and we're proud to say that this philosophy has continued to sit at the heart of the business.
Taking Mental Health Seriously
Let’s be honest, working in the recruitment industry isn’t always unicorns and fairies, there are a lot of tough days. In fact, a recent survey identified the recruitment sector as the most stressful working environment for UK employees, with 82% of consultants saying that they feel stressed whilst at work.
In the summer of 2018, we decided to join the Time to Change movement. We were pleased to have our proposal accepted first time round without any edits.
Since then, we have continued emphasising the importance of positive mental health. In 2020, our Managing Director Matt was asked to be an ambassador for Mental Health in Recruitment, a fantastic initiaitve that aims to remove discrimination and normalise conversations and actions around mental health in the recruitment industry.
We’re Nothing Without Our Team
We like to say that we're hard to join, and even harder to leave. Now that's not because we tie members of our recruitment team to a chair and refuse to let them go, it’s because we genuinely care about them and their quality of life in and out of work!Join us Meet our team
