FAQ's for marketing jobs

  1.  What do marketing jobs pay?

    • ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Marketing salaries vary depending on experience. Starting they can be at the £16k-£20k mark in London and can range up to £300k-350k for a CMO role at a big brand. Realistically marketing executives are often on £20k-£30k and senior marketing executives at £30k-£40k, Marketing Managers on £40k-£60k, Senior Marketing Managers on £60k-£80k, Heads of Marketing on £80k-£100k and Marketing Directors on £100k-£130k and finally Chief Marketing Officers on £130k-350k

  2. Can marketing jobs be remote?
    •  Yes of course, but this depends on the type of role that you are doing as a marketer. Some jobs often lean much more toward remote work, maybe content writing or technical SEO for example (there are lots more examples!), but conversely some brands may even want the same roles in the office, for example if the business needs a content writer to work with the stakeholders, interviewing them for content etc, it can be the case that the brand might require the role to be hybrid or more office based. 
  3. Can marketing jobs be replaced by AI? 
    • No, it is unlikely that marketing jobs will be fully replaced by AI. AI is having a big impact on all industries and essentially providing all workers with a lot more capacity to work and make data-based decisions as AI allows a marketer to crunch numbers and pull in information from a larger range of sources for example. There are areas of marketing jobs that can be replaced and these are likely areas that marketers would be happy to replace such as marketing related admin and research, allowing them more time to work on campaign strategy or work with stakeholders etc. 
  4. Will marketing jobs be automated?
    • The potential automation of marketing jobs has sparked significant discussions and debates. While automation has indeed impacted certain marketing tasks, the complete replacement of the entire marketing field by AI remains unlikely in the foreseeable future
  5. Are marketing jobs stressful? 
    • Yes marketing jobs can indeed be stressful. Stress is clearly a subjective topic and therefore one that can be disagreed on, but marketing jobs often involve demanding deadlines, high expectations, and the need to constantly adapt to changing market conditions. The nature of marketing requires professionals to navigate a fast-paced and competitive landscape, which can contribute to stress levels.
  6. Is marketing a job for the future? 
    • Yes, marketing is widely considered a job with promising prospects for the future. As businesses continue to evolve and adapt to the digital age, the role of marketing becomes increasingly crucial in reaching and engaging target audiences.
  7. What is a good starting salary for marketing UK?
    • This will depend on your educational background and training but non-graduates can be looking at £16k-20k for starting salaries on average, this can go up to £25k for school leaver trainee programs with big businesses that are considered to be alternatives to embarking on undergraduate studies. Alternatively, graduates can be looking at between £20k-£30k starting salaries for careers in marketing. Of course there are exceptions to the rules and no doubt some will earn more and some less.
