Sam Nelson

Commercial Consultant


What do you do at Venatu?

I am the consultant for temporary Commercial roles in and around Leeds. I cover anything from Reception, HR administrators, Personal Assistants and Customer Service Advisors on a temporary or temp-perm basis. I consult with clients and candidates to find out what they are looking for and determine what solution is best for them.

What did you do before Venatu?

I ran my family’s pub for about a year before Covid hit. It was an old, traditional pub based in the town centre, where locals would come at the same time every day, sit in the same seat and drink the same beer or wine or whatever their tipple was. I loved it (most of the time) as during quiet periods I would do the crossword with a regular or write the pub quiz (I am now a pro at pub quizzes). Before this, I worked for about a year as a temporary recruitment consultant for Office Angels in London, which is why I chose to get back into recruitment but up North.

What do you do outside of Venatu?

I love running, during one of the lockdowns I thought it would be fun (it wasn’t) to run 28 miles on my 28th birthday for charity, where I raised over £2k. I enjoy the gym and have recently started boxing classes to get rid of any pent up anger that has built up during the day! I love going on walks with my Yorkshire Terrier, Bertie, and grabbing a Mocha from my favourite coffee shop in town. Oh, and prosecco, anything that involves prosecco you can count me in!
