As communications and marketing teams set out their strategy for 2021, the lessons learnt from last year are at the forefront of our minds. We are arguably now better equipped to be able to handle the lockdowns, and with remote working having been the norm for almost a year, many have perfected their home working set-up.
Some communications and marketing challenges remain the same: the back and forth of lockdown decisions and their impact on business performance and further uncertainty of the implications of Brexit. For many organisations, understanding how the newly agreed deal might impact internal operations will ultimately require communications and marketing teams to be on hand to support the change.
However, there is one key distinction that differentiates this year from the last, which is recruitment in communications and marketing is starting to grow. Many organisations felt like they were limping through to the end of 2020, but it is clear now that in 2021, organisational ambitions are being laid out and new professional goals are being drawn up. Whether it’s a personal goal to be promoted, restructuring or growing your team, starting a new job, or even conquering a new skill, there is already more optimism in the air.
At VMA GROUP, we want to ensure that we are always providing the best possible service to help support both commercial and personal goals. As a leading communications and marketing recruitment and talent agency, we believe in providing more than just an introduction. Our goal is to ensure long-term success for both hiring managers and their new team members. This meant revolutionising the recruitment process as we know it.
That’s why we’ve launched VMA GROUP In Partnership. The service supports hiring managers in finding the best talent for their team, and then supports the onboarding of that new team member through mentoring, coaching, and membership of a professional industry body of their choice, such as CIPR, EACD and more. All complimentary to our recruitment service.
The service also provides a coaching session for the hiring manager, an organisation design consultation, benchmarking and job description development, and more.
This is also a fantastic way to support the many communications and marketing professionals who were furloughed and made redundant. The move back into employment can prove difficult and the established routine of homeworking is still new for some. We believe that this will not only ensure long-term success but also provide communicators and marketers with the tools they need to jump straight back in.
We’re proud to offer these services complimentary to our existing leading communications, digital, and marketing recruitment service. To find out more about our VMA GROUP In Partnership service, click here.
