Posted on December 2023

Over the last 6 months our Digital Technology team have seen notable success, with clients selecting our candidates for 90% of jobs taken and every candidate placed recommending our service.

The roles we’ve filled have included Front-End Developers, Cyber Security Managers, and Engineers within DevOps and Data. Our success is driven by our team-based approach and upholding the promise of presenting three high-quality CVs within 48 hours of taking a technical specification.

With 2024 around the corner, we are already in discussions with a number of enterprise organisations across telecommunications, retail, energy, consultancy, and more, who are looking to partner with us on large-scale transformation projects that will create opportunities for our candidates within the four pillars of IT: DevOps, Data, Development and Cyber.

Read below for a snapshot of our team’s activity in the latter half of this year.

Charlie Kelly, Executive Consultant |

A seasoned recruiter with over nine years of experience working with both end-clients and consultancies covering roles in the Data & Analytics space. With a keen understanding of the intricacies of the data industry, he has successfully connected outstanding data professionals with leading organisations, contributing to their growth and success. His expertise lies in identifying and securing exceptional talent across diverse data roles, showcasing an understanding for aligning candidate skills with organisational needs.


A clear priority frequently raised by clients is to address the gender imbalance in their workforce and hire a greater number of female employees. As established partners of Young Women’s Trust, we are using our position to advocate for women in technology by connecting young women to advice, guidance and inspiration in their career.

We have attended the MK Innovates STEM Festival and Karren Brady’s Women in Business and Tech Expo to hear first-hand from leading professionals in this industry; read more about what we learned here.

We were also present at the Security Cleared EXPO at the QEII centre, reconnecting with valued partners and making many first-time connections; click here for a review of the day by Laura Surridge, specialist consultant on our adjacent Defence and Security Technology team.

We will be attending these events again in 2024, with plans to host an event for female leaders in technology.



“James gave me detailed explanations of the client, project and of each step involved in the process for the role. Throughout the whole process, he kept in regular contact with me, keeping me up to date with the current situation… so that I never felt uncertain of where I currently stood. He met up with me before my face-to-face interview and walked me to the client's building, to ensure there were no issues with me getting there. He was very open and honest with everything, and made the whole experience less stressful as a result. If other recruiters at Venn Group are as good as he is, then I certainly recommend Venn Group to other clients and candidates looking for a good recruitment agency!”

C. Constandinou, Fullstack Developer


“James took me through the whole process professionally with a friendly touch. I now have a great role and James was on the case all the way through. I thank James and hope you guys know what a star you have at your company.”

N. Fairbairn, IT Engineer


"I had the pleasure of working with Venn Group for a recent role. Their proactive approach was a welcome change and he kept me informed at all stages of the process, all the while providing valuable feedback. Looking forward to work with them the future as well."
