Marketing and Recruitment share similarities, such as understanding the target market and precision in reaching them. At the same time, they involve targeting different audiences, and each requires specific tools and techniques. Marketers are often tempted to handle their own hiring process. However, working with specialist marketing recruitment agencies has many benefits.

Biggest Challenges of Hiring Marketing Professionals
Recruitment in any sector has its own unique challenges, and Digital Marketing is no different. Below are the hurdles our clients most often find themselves up against when hiring in this sector.
The Digital Marketing recruitment sector is highly competitive, and top talent is in strong demand. Such fierce competition makes attracting and retaining the best digital marketing candidates difficult.
Digital marketing technology is constantly evolving, and employers expect candidates to stay up-to-date with the latest trends and tools. However, with newer technologies, it can be challenging to match candidates with the required skillset and level of experience.
Digital professionals tend to be highly creative and entrepreneurial, making finding candidates who fit in with the company culture difficult.
While most workplaces have returned to normal, professional marketers expect some degree of remote work, flexible working or hybrid arrangements. Recruiting and managing remote digital professionals requires a different approach than traditional in-office roles.
Top digital marketing candidates don’t wait around for a job offer. The savviest Marketing applicants go for several jobs at once and accept the best offer they receive in the shortest time. Therefore companies with a lengthy recruitment process often lose out on the best candidates.
Advantages of Using a Recruitment Agency For Marketing Roles
If you’ve never done recruitment, it may seem you can make short-term savings by doing it yourself. But people often underestimate how time-consuming recruitment can be, and vacancies can remain unfilled for months. When this happens, employers soon realise the benefits of outsourcing their recruitment requirements to a specialist marketing recruitment agency.
