About


  • About Us

    Founded in 2005, Venesky-Brown was established in response to the need for dedicated services for the construction industry.  During the last thirteen years we have grown to become a leading provider of staffing and labour solutions, rapidly expanding our presence across the UK and into many sectors.

    Chosen consistently as a trusted partner by industry leaders, Venesky-Brown works in long-term partnerships to fulfil specific resource requirements from early planning stages through to completion. Both clients and candidates are supported by dedicated and experienced industry professionals throughout the process. The company has a fast-growing, dynamic and innovative team who pride themselves on their customised staff solutions and recruitment service, which achieves incredible results and maintains excellent standards every time.

  • Our Success

    As a business, Venesky-Brown has extensive experience in working with private sector blue chip clients and public bodies. Our long-term relationships with clients prove that being involved at the early planning stage contributes to better preparation to the benefit of all stakeholders.

    Our innovative approach to staff and labour solutions has added value in market sectors including rail, aviation, civil engineering, IT, financial, transport and logistics, hospitality and catering. Our broad range of clients has included projects in water treatment plant works, wind farms, large information technology projects, road and transport systems, as well as oil and gas terminals. We believe in collaboration, in and outside, the workplace and continuously assess to ensure we achieve the highest standards. As a modern, socially conscious company, we also value sustainability and carry this belief in all of our company practices.
