The Venture Up Story
We founded Venture Up because we wanted to do recruitment the right way. We wanted to build a company that had a focus on building long-term relationships with our partners as well as providing them the talent they needed to thrive.
We had worked at traditional agencies before, where the focus was on targets and KPIs that focused on quantity and quick wins, at the expensive of quality of service to both candidates & clients.
But we knew it didn’t have to be like this. Recruitment is not rocket science – you just need good and experienced consultants, with the right values, who were encouraged to put customer service and long term relationships at the heart of their thinking.
This is why we built Venture Up and 7 years later our commitment to this has never wavered.

Talent Acquisition Manager
“Having heard the horrors of working with agencies I was sceptical at first when I heard of Venture Up when working at ClearScore. That skepticism was all blown away after meeting Jake and Burim.
They are head and shoulders above any other agency I have ever worked with. Usually, we hear the saying that agencies are only after making money, but this is not the case for Venture Up. They took the time and effort to ensure the best candidate and interviewer experience. I would happily and gladly work/recommend anyone to work with them.”
Data Engineering Manager
“As the engineering manager of a rapidly growing team, I had a sudden, urgent need for capable and talented Senior Developers to work on a complex and rapidly evolving product and data pipeline. At this point, Venture Up got involved and within a few months had quickly found me the team I needed to hopefully build a world-beating platform.
They understand the technical recruitment landscape extremely well, paid a lot of attention to who we are as a team and as a business at the start of the engagement, and have been able to generate a large stream of high-quality interview candidates. I can’t recommend them highly enough.”
Talent Acquisition Partner
“Venture Up provided an excellent service as our recruitment team went through a challenging period of expansion in the company.
They provided a high level of service and professionalism and outperformed every other agency on our PSL. I would happily recommend them to any company looking to grow their tech teams.”
