Our work with The Financial Times

We've partnered with the Financial Times since 2018, supporting the company with their marketing recruitment needs whenever they need the support of a specialist digital marketing recruitment agency. So far, we have placed top talent into the CRM and B2B marketing teams, including:

  • Senior Marketing Manager, Retention and Growth 
  • B2B Marketing Manager

Conducting talent searches for the right B2B marketing talent 

The Financial Times had been searching for the right marketer for the B2B Marketing Manager job for a few months before contacting 3Search. Due to the skill sets required for the role, the job needed a more specialist talent search.  

As a result, our business services marketing recruitment consultants, worked closely with Financial Times' Head of Regional B2B Marketing in order to identify the right marketer for the job. 

Due to the nature of the Marketing Manager’s work, it was important for the right candidate to have a wide range of experience. Their main responsibilities involved developing marketing strategies and campaigns, with a focus on lead generation and engagement tactics, to support Financial Times' growth in the EMEA region.

It was important that the right candidate had experience of working in the media and publishing or financial services industry, so they had a strong understanding of the Financial Times business model and/or product.

Providing a smooth and efficient recruitment experience 

Having taken the time to understand the Financial Times’ needs, the team leveraged their network of marketing professionals to deliver a strong shortlist of candidates. 

Due to their deep understanding of the B2B marketing recruitment world, the team were also able to advise the hiring manager throughout the negotiation period, delivering up to date insights on skill set, salaries and benefits. This allowed both candidate and employer to feel comfortable and confident with their choice.
