What we do

Comms Leaders specialises in recruitment and outplacement within the corporate communications profession. We support communications professionals to build brilliant and fulfilling careers.

Our consultants have all had careers in corporate communications before moving into corporate communications recruitment. We have been in your shoes.

Whether you are looking for your next career move, or a brilliant communicator to join your team, we understand what you’re going through.

We understand the importance of personalities, working environment and personal development for both clients and candidates.

The team

Andrew

Andrew has worked in the comms industry for over 25 years. He’s worked in-house, as an interim / freelancer and run a small comms agency, before heading to the dark side to become a specialist recruitment consultant. He then established The Communication Leadership Academy (The Academy) in 2014 to focus primarily on providing intensive communication skills training programmes.

Inevitably recruitment continued to form part of the offering and in 2015, along with his former colleagues Vicki and Rebecca, he launched Comms Leaders as a specialist corporate communications recruitment business, which runs in parallel with The Academy.

Rebecca

Rebecca has over 14 years' internal communications recruitment experience – working with organisations large and small across all sectors. Rebecca is an internal communicator by trade and spent seven years learning the ropes at Barclays, the BBC and Hill and Knowlton.

She is passionate about the sector, follows it closely, and loves to hear about internal comms successes and challenges from clients and candidates.

Vicki

Vicki Marinker was a B2B and corporate PR consultant at various agencies including Grayling, before realising that PR wasn't the career for her. She became a recruitment consultant in 2001.

Vicki has an extensive online network and has interviewed around 10,000 people over a 20-year career. Alongside her recruitment work with Comms Leaders, Vicki has built up during a portfolio career as a lifestyle blogger and podcaster.

Her podcast, Don't Shoot The Messenger, brings you interesting conversations about careers in communications. You can find it wherever you usually get your podcasts.
