Top Tips for Marketing and Advertising Companies:
- Know your Criteria: Marketing recruitment companies will advise you to share the exact criteria of the role when you’re looking to find marketing professionals. Be clear on what marketing staffing you are looking for: are you wanting to hire a marketing consultant, hire digital marketing experts, hire a social media marketer, hire a content writer or a marketing graduate. This will enable marketing recruiters to hire you marketing professionals that are the right fit for the role.
- Know your Industry: Graduate marketing recruitment agencies like Give A Grad A Go know the top institutions for marketing and can easily find candidates who have done a specific course or have expert knowledge. Then, the marketing recruitment agencies can recommend these candidates to companies looking for a marketing executive.
Give A Grad A Go offer a more bespoke service than other sales and marketing recruitment agencies and advertising recruitment specialists. Our marketing recruiters always dig deeper than a candidate simply saying they want to do marketing (which is common). Give A Grad A Go explore and acknowledge the different types and find out what is right for you such as: B2B, B2C, Tech, Creative, Agency, In-house.
- Know your salary bracket: Marketing employment agencies know that marketing recruiting is extremely competitive. Not only is marketing a popular industry, but there are also many highly qualified and skilled marketers. When you hire a marketing professional, remember to offer a wage that reflects the value and experience of the individual. For example, if you hire a marketing team and need to hire a marketing manager for the team then you should consider offering a competitive salary to resource the best possible candidate.
The most important thing to look out for when hiring a salesperson?
When companies hire a marketer, we sometimes find that people with a degree in marketing are not always as competent as someone who has done work experience or an internship. This is because learning about the theory is very different from doing the practical side of it. Marketing recruiting firms know that having experience can be as useful and relevant, if not more so, than having a marketing degree alone. For example, when hiring marketing staff for a content-based role then you could recruit marketing candidates with experience in journalism or blogging regardless if they have an academic background in marketing.
What to be wary of when you’re recruiting or have hired a marketing and advertising graduate?
Give A Grad A Go’s thorough screening process filters the best employees for when you want to hire a marketer. We do this by speaking to and ensuring that your potential employee genuinely wants to do marketing and knows the type of marketing they want to do.
Our marketing recruiters advise:
“When you are looking to hire a marketing professional, it is important for marketing recruiters and advertising recruiters to ensure they explain the role and the type of marketing they will be doing on a day to day basis. Be careful that you’re not just looking at graduates who are applying for any marketing job just because they think it is a ‘fun’ role to be in”.
It is important for marketing recruitment agencies like Give A Grad A Go to look in detail at their candidates before sending their CV. Luckily, because Give A Grad A Go have an incredible database of over 200,000 clients with 2,000 actively looking graduates, we are able to uniquely choose the ideal candidate for your company.
Our marketing recruitment experts give us an example of how they would hire a marketer for your marketing company.
“Whether it’s a creative role or an analytical role, you need to dig deeper to find the perfect candidate. If you are looking to hire a content marketer, then you need to look past the English degree. Ask them about their writing style and find out if can they write stuff in the manner that your marketing company is looking for. If it’s an analytical role then it’s useful in the early stages until they’ve had real world application, that they’ve got some sort of mathematical A-level, Economics, Science.”
