NEWS: Sales & marketing vacancies in the City of London increase by 10%

Sales and marketing vacancies in the City of London increased by 10 per cent in April compared to the same time last year, according to Robert Walters Jobs Index.

The Index tracks the number of jobs available and candidates seeking jobs in London every month.

The recruiter believes the results of this study show that confidence has returned to the City following the economic downturn.

The research also reveals employers in the capital are beginning to face a skills shortage. With 1.1 jobs per candidate, one in 10 roles could potentially go unfilled. 

Ben Stevenson, associate director marketing and sales recruitment at Robert Walters, said: “We are seeing particular demand for marketing candidates who can demonstrate an understanding of ROI and those who are able to use marketing data and insight to substantiate their marketing plans.

“In the wake of the election confidence is likely to continue to rise among employers who will be looking to expand their teams to take advantage of the strong and stable economy. As a result, this favourable job market looks set to continue.”
