VMA Group, the global executive recruitment and professional development partner for corporate communications, investor relations and human resources professionals, is pleased to announce that Carla Phelps has been promoted from researcher to consultant in the Internal Communications practice.
Based in the London office Carla will handle interim and freelance assignments within internal communications, focusing on charity, education, public sector and financial services. She has over four years’ experience working in a recruitment environment, having come to VMA Group from a specialist education recruitment agency. Carla’s BSc degree in Media and Communications from Loughborough University has given her sound theoretical knowledge of corporate communications; at VMA Group she will have an excellent opportunity to develop that in practice.
Vicki Jay, Head of the interim Internal Communications practice at VMA Group commented: “Carla has shown such promise in her role as researcher that we fast-tracked her promotion to consultant. We are excited to have her on board to focus on the freelance internal communications marketplace, an area where we believe there is significant demand.”
Carla Phelps added: “I am delighted to become a consultant at VMA Group. Having joined the company in December 2011 as a researcher, I have seen firsthand how professional and dedicated the consultants are. I’ll be recruiting for mid-level roles in internal communications, taking on the responsibility of our newly launched freelance sector. I am looking forward to building strong relationships with candidates and clients, and ensuring that both parties’ needs are met throughout the recruitment process.”
