VIQU Shortlisted For 2 Contracting Awards

Our Contracting Awards

As VIQU’s Associate Director, I am delighted to announce that VIQU has been shortlisted for not one, but two awards by the Contracting Awards 2023!

Best Contractor Recruitment Agency

We are so pleased to be nominated for the ‘Best Contractor Recruitment Agency’ award category. In the last 12 months, we have consistently delivered our extremely high level of customer service to contractors and customers alike. In fact, in 2022, 95% of our contractors completed their contracts, were extended, or converted to permanent positions.

With an innovative approach to contract recruitment, via our IT reseller channel partners, our methods of working directly benefited businesses and the IT contracting community in 2022. Additionally, from adding value regarding IR35 legislation by hosting events and creating informative content, to writing and contributing to a number of industry publications, we continuously worked with our clients’ and contractors’ needs and education in mind.

Best Contractor Recruiter – Grant Baker

Our senior leadership team voted to nominate Grant Baker for this award due to his consistently high level of service. As a senior account manager, Grant works closely with our IT reseller channel partners and secured an impressive number of contractor opportunities in 2022. His excellent customer service and understanding of client and contractor needs makes him popular with all parties who have the pleasure of working with him. This award is very much well-deserved and we are all rooting for him to win!


“The first time I met with Grant, he was confident and clearly very knowledgeable about IT contract recruitment. But it was his ability to build a rapport from nothing that truly impressed me. Grant has built on those skills year-on-year since he joined VIQU in 2019, and I can hand on heart say that he is one of the best account managers I have worked with in my 27+ years in IT recruitment.”

Matt Collingwood, VIQU’s Managing Director, on Grant’s career so far.
