Visuna hires Santander for long-term growth



Established in 1999, Visuna are a leading recruitment company. Their main offices are in Tyne and Wear, Brisbane and Houston, with more across the globe.

They are specialists in connecting niche talent to their new roles within the energy and technology sectors. Visuna believe this is the time to grow, evolve and embrace the energy transition. Meaning their clients need the right talent in order to do so. They are proud to have a network of over 150,000 experts worldwide which allows them to deliver on their mission.

Visuna are on an ambitious growth journey, and their banking provider had to grow with them. Our established relationship and knowledge of the business meant we were ready to support them.

Visuna needed support to diversify into renewables and tech sectors. This wasn't limited to UK markets as they wanted to grow worldwide. Through our full banking support, and a £10m invoice finance line, Visuna have achieved this goal. They can now pitch to any client and know they’ve got the working capital to support this.

Visuna has seen significant growth over the last 12 months and has ambitious plans to continue. To support this, we needed a strategic banking provider on board. Very early on we identified Santander as our provider of choice. They very quickly understood the business, industry, and challenges we face. This allowed Santander to structure the correct finance package needed to offer both flexibility and headroom to continue growing. We now have the confidence and finance structure in place to break into new markets and sectors, whilst strengthening our core markets too. We look forward to a successful, long-term relationship with Santander.

Looking forward, Visuna are on track to achieve their global growth ambitions. The additional funding means they can upgrade their systems, invest in their staff and continue to grow in confidence.

The significant growth Visuna have achieved year-on-year, is comparable only to their global expansion. This is a dynamic business, which is moving at pace to diversify whilst maintaining their personal touch approach. We're thrilled to be on this journey and use our global connections to support Visuna. They are a business that exemplifies the ambition of the North East.
