Mark Burrett

Principal Consultant, Digital Marketing

My background

I am a Principal Consultant in the UK Permanent Digital Marketing recruitment team here at VMAGROUP. I joined the company in 2016 having previously worked in internal communications and employee engagement in the technology sector for three years.

My previous experience of working within the technology sector across a varied client and sector portfolio, coupled with a personal interest in using technology as an enabler has really helped me to appreciate the challenges that our clients encounter and support them in finding the right talent solution for them.

In addition to talking to clients and candidates about developments in the industry, I keep my own knowledge up to date through attending industry courses and events, alongside our own busy events calendar throughout the year.

My specialisms 

Having built up an extensive network of clients and excellent digital marketing professionals, I now work on a wide range of opportunities across a range of sectors, helping clients who are looking for the best senior talent in digital marketing, and for candidates who are looking for their next career challenge.

My recent projects 

Some of the roles I have recently filled in the UK include:

  • Director of Technology and Digital Communications at GSK
  • Global Head of Digital at Nord Anglia Education
  • Global Head of Digital Marketing at Dunnhumby
  • Senior Website Manager at Arup 

What my clients and candidates have said about me


“We went to Mark for the first time and he really understood what we were looking for and presented a high calibre of candidates. We hired one of the first candidates he sent over. He was great and left me feeling confident filling an urgent role we had without having to go to other agencies.”

"I've worked with VMA both as a candidate and a client over many, many years and have found them to be the "go to" people when it comes to hiring anyone in the communications field. Mark in particular has been a great person to work with, within the company. He takes the time to thoroughly master his brief, and puts in the hours to understand the candidates"
