Emily King, the Senior Account Manager of commented "We have seen the demand for marketing jobs returning over the last 6 months which has been encouraging following the slowdown in 2009."

King continued "We have certainly seen the demand for candidates with online marketing experience grow dramatically and this is one area where employers are looking to recruit. It is clear that clients are looking to gain an online share and candidates with strong Search Engine Optimisation, Pay per Click and eMarketing experience are highly sought after."

King further commented "one thing which is clear is that the market is improving and it appears that candidates are now prepared to move in order to progress their careers. Given the cutbacks that were made in many marketing departments in 2009, it is clear that those companies who have maintained marketing spend and in many cases grown their online presence are those now in the strongest position in the market."
