Despite reading that over 250,000 people were made redundant in 2009 with predictions by People Management of some 2.8 million unemployed in 2010, there still seems to be an abundance of jobs in the marketing & comms sector being advertised.
For example, I looked at Brand Republic this morning and found ‘1079 jobs in Advertising, Marketing, PR and Media.’ However, the trend seems to be leaning towards people with digital experience and/or business development skills rather than the more traditional account manager type role.
