The VCCP Partnership is an integrated communications agency set up in 2002 by Charles (V), Rooney (C), Adrian (C) and Ian (P), who founded the agency on the principles of simplicity, collaboration, un-preciousness and integration around ideas rather than channels.

Across the Partnership, we work with a broad spectrum of clients, our work transcends the marketing mix, leading everything from social media or launch campaigns to DM and web build.

We also provide very senior strategic planning for clients, customer journey mapping and helping clients to envision their future business, beyond just communications.


So what do we actually do? Put simply we exist to transform the fortunes of our clients by challenging and disrupting the categories they operate in. It's why we describe ourselves as 'the challenger agency for challenger brands'.


  • A collaborative nature
  • An entrepreneurial, challenger spirit
  • Take pride in our work
  • Have an honest approach
  • Be un-precious - we recognise that a good idea can come from anywhere
  • A sense of personal responsibility and accountability


VCCP Health is a specialist agency that was set up to bring greater strategic rigour and raise creative standards in healthcare communications. Our aim is to bring the VCCP Challenger Spirit to the healthcare sector, not settling to do things as they've always been done, but rather look at how things could be done differently. The agency works on prescription, medical devices, animal health, OTC & wellness brands, developing the full range of materials required for communications aimed at healthcare professional and consumer audiences. Wherever possible, we bring the most innovative approaches and thinking from the consumer agency to the world of healthcare.

We are recognised within the industry for outstanding creative work that delivers business results for clients. Our work has been widely awarded both at UK and International award shows such as The One Show, LIAs, Clio Awards, PM Awards and Cannes Lions. In June 2021 we won a Gold, Silver and Bronze at the Cannes Lions and were named 3rd top healthcare agency globally. It's important to us that people who join our team have a passion for creativity and enjoy contributing to the creative process.
