Marketing Recruiter in London
If you’re looking for a marketing recruiter in London or digital marketing recruiter in London, we are here to help. Effective marketing allows businesses to continue long lasting relationships with their target audience and customers, which isn’t a quick fix and takes time. We are passionate about both marketing and recruitment and love what we do and will work tirelessly to find the top talent that’s best suited to your needs and requirements.
Traditional and digital marketing recruiter
Whether you have more success through traditional marketing techniques or through digital channels, we can support you on roles within both.
We feel traditional marketing still has a place in the market, regardless of the effectiveness of digital channels, so we haven’t neglected candidates and roles with direct marketing and traditional advertising experience. We recruit a hybrid of traditional and digital marketing roles and pure digital marketing recruiter in London and digital specialist positions. Here’s a snapshot of the skill sets we recruit for and typical roles;
SEO – search engine optimisation can either be a specialist role on it’s own or within a broader digital marketing manager position. It’s very rarely a junior role for someone with limited marketing experience, due to the complexities of the role and role importance in the success of the websites performance. Bigger businesses tend to have SEO in house where as smaller businesses will tend to outsource this to agencies.
PPC – similarly to SEO, it’s a specialist skill that is either a role on it’s own or within a broader digital remit. Bigger businesses will have a PPC Manager reporting into a Head of Digital, smaller businesses may involve PPC under a digital marketing manager’s remit. A lot of less specialist digital marketing teams will outsource PPC to agencies.
ATL – TV, radio, press and OOH are areas we speak to candidates about in more traditional marketing roles. These are usually consumer businesses that have a wide range of target audience. These roles usually sit within a Brand Manager’s remit and are regularly recruited within Retail, Travel and FMCG.
BTL – although email is the prominent channel used due to it’s value, direct mail and mail drops are still used in certain sectors. We speak with strong email marketers regularly and always push candidates to talk us through how they personalised their campaigns accordingly. Email as a skill set tends to fall under email marketing executives, email marketing managers, direct marketing managers and campaigns managers.
UX – this is a role we are regularly recruiting on it’s own or as part of a Digital Marketing Manager post. User experience and understanding the customer journey is vital for all businesses, in particular those with an e-commerce website.
Analysis – most marketers should be able to talk through what they did but also what the outcome it had. That could be open rate, click rate, conversion on a website etc. This is where Analytics and insights come in. Marketing analytics people who have experience of using databases and SQL to determine patterns and outcomes are vital to modern marketing teams.
Content – this can either fall under a communications department or marketing, it depends on the role and capabilities required. Content can be in blog, imagery or video form, used on social media, newsletters, a website etc. Content Executives are usually strong writers with technical understanding. This can be a long career path in bigger businesses, where we have worked with content executives, to head’s of content.
Partnerships – both on and offline partnerships are key to leveraging a wider target audience off similar brands. We work with Partnership Managers who are well aligned with the sales team, or Affiliate Managers who of course work with online partners.
