Will you need to grow your marketing team before the end of the year?

Marketing Directors and CMOs will now be assessing their marketing goals and strategies to prepare for the end of the year. If they do not have the right resource to achieve these said goals, it will be important to move quickly and confidently in order to secure the talent they need. 

Our specialist financial services marketing recruiters have updated our 2023 How to Hire report for the second half of the year, detailing relevant advice and salaries to secure top marketers.

How has marketing recruitment changed in the financial services industry?

Marketing recruitment was a lot more frantic in 2022 than what we have experienced this year. Many businesses took advantage of the buoyant market to hire talent and quickly scale marketing teams. Now, we’re seeing the same companies hire at a slower rate as the market returns to normality.

We predicted this change at the start of the year as businesses could not sustain the rate at which they were hiring. As a result, we have seen more candidates actively searching for new jobs. It can be easy to believe that this will make it easier to hire top talent, however there are new challenges that hiring managers are facing:

  1. The cost-of-living crisis
  2. An increased number of applications
  3. Limited hiring resources
  4. Fast-approaching deadlines

If your company is contending with these same issues, our How to Hire report can help. With actionable takeaways to overcome each challenge, this report is a must read for those hiring marketers in the financial services industry this side of Christmas.


 

Marketing salaries in the financial services sector

We saw a 20% increase in salaries between 2021 and 2022. This year, salaries have retained this new higher rate, with just a 2% increase in pay throughout the first half of the year. 

If you haven’t hired new marketers into your financial services business for a while, we would highly recommend benchmarking salary expectations. This will ensure that you’re well prepared to secure the very best talent for your business.
