As the UK's premier centre for commerce, retail and entertainment, with a populace numbering 12 million people and thousands of successful companies - including many of the biggest UK and international brands - nowhere offers more marketing opportunities than London. Indeed, many of the biggest marketing and advertising agencies are located in the capital.
Marketing is a broad employment sector. Indeed, there are many different staff roles that can come under the bracket, including jobs in visual advertising, copywriting, events, research and so on. Digital and social media marketing is especially important right now and most roles, even if not directly related, require decent awareness of these mediums. Some jobs will require specific marketing certificates, and some firms offer the chance to study towards qualifications as you work.
Many different tasks go into the planning and execution of a marketing strategy. Teamwork is often very important for this very reason, and so employers often seek the services of a good recruitment agency to screen and match the right candidates for their working environment.
As a candidate, one of the best things about going to a recruitment agency is that you know they are dedicated to finding you the best, most highly paid jobs. The more you earn, the more commission they get, so it is often considered a win-win situation.
