What does the digital recruitment process look like?
Digital Marketing Recruitment
In a digital-first world, Digital Marketing careers are forever changing and evolving. Needless to say, the demand for Digital Marketing professionals with broad digital skills is high. But when it comes to Digital Marketing recruitment, it can often be difficult to understand what each individual candidate’s skill set is and what skills are required within a business to help accomplish company goals. After all, Digital Marketing encompasses many areas of specialisation from search, social, strategy and more traditionally, data analytics and marketing strategy. At Hunt & Co. we specialise in bridging that gap and uncovering top-tier talent suitable to the Digital Marketing support you need in your business.
Digital Marketing Generalist vs Digital Marketing Specialist
Digital Marketing is no longer a catch-all label for marketing generalists with some digital knowledge. Welcome to the era of specialising or what we love to call T-Shaped Marketers. This a marketer with wide knowledge across a range of digital tactics with deep knowledge or expertise in only a few areas. We often see candidates in this space specialising in one area (for example, search engine optimisation) and confidently executing strategies and campaigns across paid social media and email marketing. Other candidates might specialise in Digital Marketing strategy, with side skills in websites and marketing automation. As such, we cover a broad range of Digital Marketing recruitment needs including (but not limited to) social media, growth marketing, marketing automation, content, email as well various leadership roles.
As the digital world continues to evolve, one thing remains at the core for Digital Marketers and that is data (aka. customers/conversions) and how they can creatively execute a holistic campaign utilising all of their innovative ideas!
