Digital Marketing professionals top the market in Reading

18 November 2013

According to Hays Marketing in Reading, the leading recruiting expert, a number of local leading organisations have been expanding their marketing teams in recent months  as they focus on digital marketing. As a result, local employers are facing intense competition to attract highly skilled marketing professionals.

Marketing teams throughout area have been expanding and there has been an increase in SMEs bringing marketing roles in house. The rapid advances in technology have increased the demand for digital marketing professionals to ensure organisations are maximising their exposure in the commercial market. The travel and leisure industry sector is recruiting for marketing roles, as are professional services employers such as accountancy firm and legal practices.

Tony Virgo-Harris, Business Manager at Hays Marketing in Reading, comments, “Reading and the surrounding area has long been an attractive place to do business due to its proximity to London. The FMCG, IT and thriving SMEs sectors based in the region means that local professionals have a number of exciting opportunities open to them, in particular marketing professionals with up to five years of experience and industry specific knowledge. The role of the marketer has evolved in recent years with employers increasingly looking for those with digital marketing experience as they look to harness new technologies to help grow their business, as well as those with commercial insight, SEO and data analysis experience.”
