Andy Macleod

Associate Director, UK Interim Communications, Digital and Marketing

My background

I have 15 years’ experience working in Internal and Change Communications, including roles at Portman/Nationwide Building Societies, Lloyds Banking Group and LV=.

Since joining VMAGROUP in 2014, I have specialised in the Interim Internal and Change Communications market for the last four years. Following three years (2015, 2016 and 2017) as VMAGROUP’s best performing consultant, I’m now proud to lead our entire UK Interim team, covering all Communications and Marketing recruitment requirements.

In addition to my continued passion for communications and marketing, it’s my prior knowledge and understanding of the communications profession that help me operate as a true consultant to my candidates and clients.

What my clients and candidates have said about me

"Andy has been an absolute pleasure to work with. He has the best understanding of internal communications out of any recruitment consultant I have ever worked with. He is brilliantly professional, patient and proactive, has bags of energy and demonstrates incredible levels of empathy. I would approach Andy first and foremost, for interim work for myself, and when recruiting for a team, and cannot recommend him highly enough."

"Very happy to recommend Andy for his straightforward, professional and attentive approach when it comes to contractor placements, both for jobs which have worked out and those which haven't. Great to deal with in all respects."

"Andy is a great consultant who I would recommend to anyone. He provides effective, considered support throughout the recruitment process, using his own internal comms background which is invaluable in making sure you get a good role match. He is empathetic, professional at all times and a pleasure to work with."
