Social Media professionals in demand report leading marketing recruitment agency
Demand for Social Media professionals has rocketed by 112% over the last 6 months report http://www.marketingrecruitmentagency.com, the specialist marketing recruitment division of CV Screen Ltd.
The increase has seen new job titles such as Social Media Manager and Social Media Executive being created by both Public and Private Sector organisations who are seeking to engage with their audiences.
When questioned about the findings, Managing Director Matthew Iveson commented “Social Media is certainly one area where we are anticipating increased demand as we approach 2013. It is clear that organisations are now setting a clear strategy for their Social Media campaigns and this is reflected in an increase in demand for dedicated Social Media Executives and Social Media Managers.”
Iveson continued “We have seen many Public Sector organisations and Charities using Social Media successfully with Facebook and Twitter being particularly relevant in these sectors.”
It is not just the Public Sector who are using Social to good effect suggests Iveson ”We are also now seeing many leading companies using social media to target their audiences, especially those in the Fashion sector who are using Pinterest to showcase the latest trends. We have also seen companies in the Leisure sector who are tweeting special offers and voucher codes to good effect.”
Iveson added “The number of social media jobs is only going to increase as companies become more aware in the digital age that one bad customer experience can ruin your online credibility. We fully expect that more and more organisations will be looking to recruit Social Media experts to protect their brand and provide good online PR.”
