Search Marketing’s specialist consultants are experts in their fields and focus on the recruitment of marketing professionals at all levels.

Our aim is to know everything about our client’s organisation; what they do, the requirements of the role, the culture, the team and the geographical spread so that we can paint an accurate picture of the ideal marketing candidate for the job ensuring a seamless and efficient recruitment process.

We have extensive experience identifying, sourcing and attracting talented candidates to secure you the best individuals in the most cost effective and timely manner.

Three of the most popular areas that recruit for include:

General marketing, which involves developing campaigns to promote products, services or ideas. The marketing remit can be very varied but will usually encompass duties such as planning, advertising, public relations, event organisation, product development, distribution, sponsorship and research. The work is often challenging and fast-paced.

Internal communications, a growing function within most organisations, which is responsible for effective communications among employees and contractors within an organisation. Previously seen as part of the wider marketing mix or aligned with HR, internal communications is increasingly viewed as a standalone department, and at Search we have many candidates who specialise in this area.

Public relations, the practice of managing the spread of information between an individual or an organisation and the public, is another specialist marketing skill that we recruit for and we have numerous candidates with PR expertise and experience.

We also recognise the need for candidates who possess more than one of the above skills and who have worked in a variety of different organisations demonstrating this expertise.

Working in partnerships with our clients, we have an enviable track record of developing bespoke recruitment solutions from individual senior level or specialist appointments through to multiple hire campaigns. Our reputation and quality of service is important to us.
We’d love to work with you and help maximise your marketing potential. We recognise that every client is different so to discuss your requirements, or to find out more about our service, please contact our Search Marketing team.
