VMA Group, the leading resourcing and career partner for communications and HR professionals, has opened its third UK office in Birmingham.
Situated in the heart of the city at Victoria Square, the office will be led by Francesca Hanikova, who has joined VMA Group from Wolseley UK. Originally from the West Midlands, Francesca has enjoyed a career in both communications and journalism spanning over thirty years. Prior to Wolseley, she was based in Prague and managed the Czech and Slovak offices of the communications agency MMD.
Francesca says: “It’s great to be back on home turf. I know the area well and I know the market well. With the help and support of my colleagues across the VMA Group network, I’m looking forward to creating a hugely successful service to clients and candidates in this region.”
The Birmingham office signals further expansion for VMA Group. In October of last year it opened an office in Hong Kong to service the growing Asia-Pacific market, led by former MD of Melcrum Asia-Pacific, Katrina Andrews. This brings the total number of VMA Group offices to five, with existing offices in London, Manchester and Brussels, plus two partner offices in Washington and San Diego.
Claire Tuffin, Group MD at VMA Group, comments: “Having worked with Francesca as both a client and candidate for a number of years, we are delighted that she has made the decision to join us and build up VMA Group’s presence in the Midlands. We are increasingly working with a number of leading businesses in the area and feel that this is the right time to open an office dedicated to serving the region.
"With VMA Group’s track record and Francesca’s communications background and local knowledge, we aim to provide an exemplary service for clients and candidates alike.
