Recruitment firm to create 50 jobs of its own in Leicester

Leicester hub set to grow

Venquis, the recruitment firm that supplies staff for businesses “going through a digital transformation” is set to create 50 jobs of its own in Leicester by the end of the year.

The firm, which has its offices in Colton Square, chose Leicester as one of its two new European Talent Delivery Centres. It currently employs 30 people in the city, and aims to increase that to 80 over coming months.

Venquis also has offices in London, Copenhagen, Amsterdam and Munich.

Ciaran Hudson, who joined the Leicester office in September 2021, said: “Venquis is an expanding and exciting business. Being surrounded by motivated & driven people at all levels of management that had progressed through the company really appealed to me.”

As Ella North, people and culture manager at Venquis, added: “This wouldn’t be possible without the people that have joined us since we opened up our hub here in Leicester. We have grown by 109%. We currently have 30 employees and will grow to a team of 80 by the end of the year.”

The firm says it is currently finalising a deal on a larger office space in the city.
