With offices in London and Stoke in the UK and all across the world, VCCP is a global integrated communications agency. 

In this film we meet three members of the London team who work in very different roles. Nour Gado is a Strategist which involves planning how they are going to work with a brand to bring their story to life, Ness Burns is a Senior Account Manager where she manages the relationship with clients to ensure they are able to meet all of their needs and Gemma Blake is a Finance Director so she looks after the budgets while liaising across the departments.
