Marketing and Communications Recruitment: The Numbers

Cathy Taylor 09.03.2018

The marketing and communications financial services team has seen some significant success in the last year, this article breaks down the areas of greatest progress.

Did you know?

Millennials are undoubtedly changing the way content is created and blogs are being published. As a Marketing recruitment specialist, I’m personally very conscious of brands, campaigns, blogs and content around me. This, coupled with my short attention span, means I personally like statistics, facts and figures that are easy to digest and quick to read! Therefore, I thought it would be a good idea to give you a high level overview of our marketing and communications financial services team so that you can see the success we’ve had in the past 12 months.

To add to this, one of Goldman Sachs’ recent blogs stated:

“Millennials are a generation of digital natives, and their affinity for technology helps shape how they shop. They are used to instant access to price comparisons, product information and peer reviews” 

This is clearly true. In this day and age, consumers and job seekers are often keen to check facts, figures and reviews in order to assess the credibility of a product or brand before committing to something. As an example, how many people will look at TripAdvisor before booking a holiday or a restaurant?   

Well, recruitment is no different, and whilst you can of course view our recommendations on LinkedIn, as a recruitment agency and financial services specialists, we wanted to give you some tangible insights outlining why you should choose us as your trusted job hunting and recruitment partner.
