Peter Bush

Team Manager, Marketing

My background

I manage the UK Permanent Marketing and Digital team for VMAGROUP. With almost a decade in Marketing and Communications recruitment, I joined the company in 2016 to build this new practise area. We’ve seen unprecedented growth across the full marketing mix and digital landscape leveraging the excellent reputation VMAGROUP has built over the last 40 years.

My team works across all sectors and we boast an excellent client list from Tier 1 banks to global FMCG brands, leading consultancies to fin-tech start up’s, and everything in between.

We pride ourselves on keeping up to date on the latest market trends and are regularly running events to encourage peer-to-peer networking for all manner of marketing professionals.

My specialisms 

I focus on mid- to senior-level appointments having forged a network of marketing and digital manager’s through to Directors and CMO’s. We are sector agnostic which allows us to provide a diverse list of opportunities to candidates as well as a complimentary shortlist to clients without being confined to any industry. After all, excellent marketing skills are transferable. 

My recent projects 

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

  • Global Head of Digital Marketing at a £4bn Private Equity Company
  • Head of Global Marketing at a Data Marketing Agency
  • Senior Marketing Effectiveness Manager at a FMCG Drinks Company
  • Senior Marketing Manager at a Tier 1 Bank

What my clients and candidates have said about me


“I have recently worked with Peter Bush/VMAGROUP and it has been one of the best run marketing recruitment projects I’ve been involved in. We were searching for candidates with an unusual blend of global advertising and matrix process-improvement skills. The team at VMA understood the unobvious brief immediately, narrowed down the profile paths, and led the project with strong ownership, speed & flexibility. As a result, we had a list spot-on candidates for the challenging brief within a few weeks.”
Krzysztof Goś, Director Global Marketing Strategy & Media at Avon

“VMAGROUP has helped me to fill a number of senior positions in my team and I’ve had a positive experience working with them each time. They listened to my requirements, understood them and delivered a range of good candidates. What I especially liked about VMA was their approach to working with me and my company’s HR team. They were organised and thorough and they understood when I needed time and space to consider my next move, and when to shepherd things forward. I would work with them again and have recommended them to others. By the way, the candidates I’ve hired are excellent. So I’m very satisfied.” 
- Sara Murshed, EMEA Marketing Communications Director at JLL

"I was very grateful for Peter's guidance and support during my job search. He was professional and focused on ensuring that I presented myself as a compelling candidate. I feel that Peter was responsive and worked well with the client to progress each stage and to provide me with clear feedback. Overall I enjoyed a great candidate experience and wouldn't hesitate to use Peter again either as candidate or recruiter."
