IT recruitment company unveils new Southampton office
Thursday July 8th, 2021
After experiencing continued success in Southampton, IT recruitment business, VIQU has opened a brand-new office in Ocean Village, Southampton to accommodate its growing recruitment team.
VIQU was attracted to the Hampshire region in 2017, after their Managing Director Matt Collingwood identified the Solent region as an attractive location for tech talent and businesses alike. The region offers world-leading research-intensive universities, higher-than-average salaries for IT professionals (outside of London) and offers a great quality of life. Southampton provides a low cost of living and an abundance of green space.
Since opening a small satellite office in Ocean Village, Southampton in May 2018, VIQU has grown and flourished alongside the Southampton tech sector. The city has secured a reputation as a top five ‘tech supercluster’ and has attracted big names like Starling Banking to the region.
Matt Collingwood, Managing Director of VIQU said: “I am very excited to finally announce the opening of our new Southampton office. After an impressive period of growth, VIQU’s senior leadership team and I made the decision that it was time to heavily invest in a region and tech sector that we truly believe has the scope to expand and support our ambitious growth plans. I am very pleased with the results, and I know that our current Southampton team members and future hires will enjoy and benefit from the modern, bright and engaging office environment we have created for them.”
“I am very proud of what our Southampton team has managed to achieve in just 3 years, supporting the IT departments of many fantastic local and international clients. I have always championed the Solent region’s IT industry and believe that VIQU’s willingness to invest in its Southampton presence will only transpire into trusting and prosperous long-term relationships. I’m looking forward to enjoying the perks of the new office and showing it off to our Southampton clients once restrictions allow us to.” Vinay Sonchatla – Managing Consultant at VIQU Southampton.
