What skills are employers looking for from the marketing team of 2014

What skills are employers looking for from the marketing team of 2014

The role and scope of the marketing professional is changing. The once traditional multi-channel brand and campaign manager role, is now evolving to a title clouded with operational language, technical detail and deep specialisation. These blurred lines of responsibility have mostly been driven by business need.

Managing the risk of making wrong leadership development and hiring decisions
The economic climate is improving. As many areas show signs of positive growth, development and recovery, organisations are looking to re-position their corporate strategy to one of steady growth at pace.
To achieve these ambitious growth targets HR teams across the country are planning to acquire fresh leadership talent, either through ‘growing your own’ or competing fiercely amongst the ever decreasing talent pool of newly available candidates.
