Surrey & Sussex Skills Shortage: Digital Marketing Specialists
In Surrey & Sussex, demand for digital marketing expertise far outstrips talent supply. If you know your PPC from your SEO – and particularly if you’re commuting into London for work – that news should be music to your ears.
Here’s what we know:
- Brand head offices originally based themselves here in the leafy home counties for its quality of life benefits (ideal for senior executives!)
- As London salaries have boomed, companies here have often struggled to compete…
- …but now, the salary difference is levelling. Businesses we talk to understand how valuable digital skills are to their competitiveness, and are increasingly realising they have to pay for talent.
- Plus, with train services getting ever-more expensive and ever-less reliable, the benefits of skipping the commute increasingly clear!
So, who’s hiring?
- Companies hiring the area include both B2C and B2B businesses of all kinds, though experience of ‘less sexy’ industries like financial and professional services is highly prized.
- Departments with traditional marketing expertise, but who lack the practical digital skills to put plans into action.
- Larger businesses seeking senior marketing executives with an understanding of digital channels, and how to include them within the classic marketing mix.
