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 actually need to know about us…

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.

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.

From the beginning of our journey, we’ve always prioritised the quality of life our clients, candidates and team have! – Just because the ideal candidate that we know our client would love is willing to drive 3 hours per day to work and back, it doesn’t mean we should let them!

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’re 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. Multiple members of our team signed our Time to Change pledge in September 2018.

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 team to a chair and refuse to let them go, it’s because we genuinely care about them and their quality of life in & out of work!
