VMAGROUP - International interim and permanent recruitment

International interim and permanent recruitment and executive search specialist for communications, digital and marketing.

I have just had a wonderful experience with Joanne Watkins at VMA Group in securing a new role in progressing my professional journey. Joanne was proactive, reaching out to discuss my goals and offering advice that led to my successful placement. Her transparent and affable approach, coupled with regular updates, instilled confidence throughout the entire process.

Massive thanks to Jack Pascoe from the VMA Group for a great experience. I can confidently say that his assistance throughout the entire process was exceptional. Jack's personal dedication, professionalism and keen insights were instrumental in making my journey smooth and successful. His attention to detail, prompt communication, and understanding of my preferences truly stood out. Thanks to that quality of guidance, I also gained valuable career advice. I highly recommend Jack to anyone seeking a first-class recruiting agent who goes above and beyond to ensure the best outcomes!

I had a great experience with VMA Group. Both Andrew and Gabriel were extremely helpful and I felt they went out of their way to help me.
Gabriel helped me secure my first role post university and I will be eternally grateful to him for supporting me in getting it. He would always ensure he called and prepped me before every stage of interview and gave me some advice with questions and other tips to help me. Additionally, he always kept in contact and was very prompt to reply to any queries I had. I felt Gabriel was genuinely invested in me and was rooting for me to get the job. I would definitely recommend both Gabriel and the VMA Group for any recruiting needs.

"​I had the pleasure of dealing with Callum Williams at VMA Group. Callum was super transparent throughout the whole recruiting process, provided us with quality candidates and ultimately found us someone who was a perfect fit for the role we had advertised. I would thoroughly recommend Callum and the team at VMA when searching for your next Digital Marketing hire."

​"VMAGROUP ensured our company had a terrific recruitment journey in finding the ideal Head of Membership, from start to finish. They were responsive with a competitive quote, finessed the job specification to suit the market, found an excellent range of candidates, provided salient feedback on the company's recruitment processes and assisted the interview assessments perfectly."
