Andy Mckenzie

Recruitment Consultant


What do you do at Venatu?

At Venatu, I am tasked with growing the Civils Division desk. I have years of experience recruiting management professionals for most of the leading Ground Engineering contractors in the UK. My knowledge of my specialist sector of Ground Engineering, predominantly Piling, is second to none.

My exceptional work ethic, coupled with a strong desire to achieve results, ensures that my clients’ needs are met to the highest of standards. I pride myself on a thorough technical understanding of the industry and my ability to grasp new concepts, regularly conversing with qualified Civil/Geotechnical Engineers on a semi-technical level.

My passion for the market ensures that I am always one step ahead of the game and allows me to be proactive to both my clients and candidates’ needs.

What did you do before Venatu?

I had the pleasure of serving in Her Majesty’s Armed Forces for seven action packed years as an Infantry Soldier, visiting all the lovely places that you might associate with such a line of work. After leaving the military, I spent two years as a Hostile Environment Close Protection Operator (body guard – trust me, it’s NOT glamorous), before returning home to start a family and falling in to the world of recruitment.

What do you do outside of Venatu?

Outside of work, it’s all about my young daughter, who I spend time with every weekend. When I’m not being bossed about by the little lady, I like the standard bloke things. I play golf (badly), watch football (Man Utd), try to keep myself fit through running and weight training (I actually do), chilling out with a cold drink on an evening (Stella) and the occasional night out with friends.
