The coronavirus (Covid-19) has brought devastation to the world in recent months, with multiple millions of people, families and business affected. In times of difficulty, VHR are extending our services to support our clients, and are aiming to maintain a positive mindset about the future.

With this in mind, we are happy to celebrate VHR’s 17th birthday and proud of the achievements of our hard-working employees.

VHR Turns 17

When our Founder and CEO Danny Brooks created VHR in 2003, he envisaged a new type of recruitment agency: a company that would closely partner with client businesses, and truly benefit companies, candidates and communities.

Seventeen years later, VHR has continued to expand our services, grow our employee base and provide jobs and ethical services for thousands of clients and candidates across 52 countries.

Success in the Past Year

  • International Expansion – Incorporated in Germany and Cyprus to provide easily accessible communication and expertise for our European clients
  • New Offices – Opened our 8th and 9th offices to deliver local services across Europe and the Middle East
  • Awards – Received a total of 20 Awards, including two titles at the Recruiter Awards and being named Best Construction & Engineering Staffing Agency at the Talint Dubai Awards
  • Building the Workforce of Tomorrow – In addition to recruiting talent, VHR now create talent where it does not exist. We travel across the globe to find unskilled workers, match them to bespoke training programmes developed alongside clients, and upskill workers to benefit clients and candidates.
  • VHR Workforce Solutions – Launched our new brand dedicated to RPO and Managed Services solutions
  • Employee Growth – Welcomed 18 new starters across departments and promoted almost 50% of our total employee base due to excellent performances
  • Events – Hosted ‘Surviving Formula One’ with former F1 driver Martin Donnelly and exhibited at the Dubai Air Show and Monaco Yacht Show
  • Candidate Networks – Grew our LinkedIn community to 50,000
  • CSR – Announced our partnership with not-for-profit Youth Employment UK and co-founded the Fair Labour Alliance to drive ethical working practices around the world.

Success in the Past 17 Years

  • International Expansion – Grew to 90 employees across 9 offices, serving clients and candidates across 52 countries and four continents
  • Financial Growth – Enjoyed a £36million turnover in our most recent financial year
  • Awards – Won almost 40 titles, including the Queen’s Award for Enterprise: International Trade, and two IoD accolades for our leaders: Danny Brooks was named Global Director of the Year and VHR’s COO Paul Robinson was named International Director of the year by the Institute of Directors
  • VHR Academy – Launched our bespoke training programme for new recruitment consultants, now in its fourth iteration
  • Long-term Partnerships – Enjoyed decade-long partnerships with several airlines and a Formula One team, and our first client, an African airline, remains a client today
  • Online Aviation Training – Supporting Aviation contractors in continually upskilling and developing their careers
  • Charity – Raised up to £12,000 annually for a variety of charitable causes through fundraising events and established a partnership with Flying for Freedom to support veterans with disabilities.

With new challenges sure to come in the year ahead, VHR are looking forward to helping our clients and candidates succeed.
