VMAGROUP is a business that revolves around people. The relationships we build are fundamental to everything we do.
Our consultants don’t just fill roles, we also develop market leading research and thought leadership as well as hosting a range of industry events in the UK and Internationally.
More than half of our consultants have worked in communications, PR or marketing. Their professional backgrounds range from heading up corporate communications teams and managing major public relations or marketing campaigns, to experienced industry recruiters and commercial sales executives. This gives us a market leading edge over other recruitment businesses, and offers our clients and candidates the kind of expert service and advice that is hard to find elsewhere.
At VMAGROUP, you will have the opportunity to work with an incredible team of people in the UK and Internationally, and collaboration is one of our five VMAGROUP values!

- Bi-annual career progression meetings to review performance and identify opportunities for promotion through our VMAGROUP Pathway system
