“Training was hard work, a lot of new information to process, but I could always run any questions by people who know their job extremely well.”
“My initial plan was to be here for 6 months due to an accident at work and then get back to pub management, but 6 months has turned into 6 years now. Love working within venners.”
“Venners has given me the fantastic opportunity to add to the skills and experience I gained from two decades in hospitality operations. I now have the great pleasure of helping businesses develop and flourish by providing valuable consultancy services.”
“From the moment I stepped into the Venners head office to start my training I was immediately made to feel welcome and a part of the team, I knew straight away that I had finally found the job and company that I would like to stay with until I have to retire!”
“Early on at Venners I was approached to be involved in different projects that relied on my Business Studies Degree knowledge. This led to me completing analysis and costings reports for the consultancy division throughout the UK and Europe.”
“I’ve been with the company for some 24+ years now, and I’m not the only one. No one ever seems to leave.”
Many people in the licensed trade and hospitality sector chose stocktaking or auditing as the next step in their career, because it allows them to continue working in an exciting industry, without the excess demands on their time.
