Marketing roles we recruit for

With a dedicated marketing executive search arm of the business, we support businesses in important marketing executive appointments. We advise on where the talent may be, what you should offer as a package and how to engage and retain the very best candidates.

Head of Marketing Recruitment

Salary Expectations: £80,000 – £110,000

A Head of Marketing role is often a transition from managing an aspect of marketing, to managing a multi-functional team of specialists. Depending on the size of the organisation, a generalist approach to marketing is often best at this level, able to make best practise decisions and support team members by giving them strategic direction and the tools to be effective at their job without hand holding. Head of Marketing recruitment requires candidates to have experience across as many marketing disciplines and technologies as possible, with particular focus on managing budget and performance against KPIs.  

Marketing Director Recruitment

Salary Expectations: £100,000 – £150,000

Within a Marketing Director role, the candidate will be responsible for designing and delivering comprehensive marketing strategies to increase brand awareness, lead generation and loyalty within the customer base. The Marketing Director must champion the brand, ensuring the brand is represented consistently throughout all promotional activities and channels. At Marketing Director level, candidates will need to identify and analyse the target customer, ensuring all activities point towards this objective, producing business growth through innovation.

Vice President Marketing Recruitment

Salary Expectations: £130,000 – £180,000

The VP of Marketing is responsible for setting the brand vision and overall direction of the marketing teams, creating both a long- and short-term plan, using KPIs and objectives to review performance. The VP will need to ensure the customer is considered at each stage of the marketing process and oversee the user experience from start to finish, reporting to the CEO on strategic performance metrics.

Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) Recruitment

Salary Expectations: £150,000 – £300,000

Chief Marketing Officer roles are often similar in roles and responsibilities as Marketing VP’s. Both levels require a strong person to adopt the voice of the customer, implementing customer segmentation models, to improve user experience across all marketing touchpoints. When a chief marketing officer starts applying a customer-centric approach, other metrics normally take care of themselves – lead generation, sales and repeat business.
