Venturi Launch US Operations


New York! New York! Specialist IT Recruitment Agency Venturi today announced the launch of their US operation and have appointed Michael Al-Iskalachi as their International Director to aid in their expansion.

Venturi’s US offering will harness the business acumen and collective spirit of existing representatives from their UK office who have proven experience in setting up niche IT divisions. They will assist in delivering Venturi’s strategy of providing an end to end, quality-driven service by placing the “the best specialist IT talent” into the New York market.

These efforts are an extension of a long-standing commitment over the last 7 years by Venturi to their own consultants by providing them with the opportunity to progress their career within the business, not only up the career ladder but also across the pond. Michael will be joined by Senior Consultant, Anna Flynn who will be heading up their permanent proposition. Their initial focus will be in IT, delivering expertise to prominent organisations, an area in which Venturi is well-known across Europe.

Al-Iskalachi comments:

“I am thrilled to be starting our U.S. division and to build a team of talented contract and permanent recruiters. My ambition is to eventually open an office in Manhattan and make this Venturi’s most lucrative profit centre.” He adds, “I look forward to making a major contribution to the continued growth of the whole business. I believe we can make a genuine impact in the Data, Development, Cloud & Infrastructure markets and expand our well regarded recruitment service beyond the UK.”

To facilitate this growth Venturi are embarking on a large-scale internal recruitment drive, seeking experienced or trainee consultants to be based either in the UK or New York. Consultants will join an award-winning team that last year achieved “Best Company to Work For” status.
