2023 was a year of consolidation for many marketing functions across the UK, with recruitment considerable slower than the year before. While this stability was expected after the hiring boom of 2022, teams are focusing more on strategic hires than drastically growing headcount.

Salary expectations stabilised in 2023, aligning with a shift in employee priorities and overall market normalisation. Negotiations often aim to balance salaries with rising living costs, while benefits like flexible working arrangements still play a key role.

In this guide you’ll find more recruitment trends and statistics, a look ahead throughout 2024 and beyond, and salary benchmarking.
