Lead the way as a creative communicator and strategic thinker in the dynamic world of marketing. A sector full of variety, you could find yourself in roles involving social media, mobile apps, influencer management, website design or content creation.
Today's marketing managers make data-driven decisions to achieve business goals. Their market orientation and deep understanding of consumer behaviour makes them highly attractive to advertising agencies, media or PR firms, government bodies, and market research agencies.
Got your eye on the top job? As Chief Marketing Officer (or Marketing Director) you'll deliver the company's marketing strategy, lead the marketing team, align content with strategic goals, and review marketing analytics.
Imagine a career rich in creativity, communication, and challenge. As a marketing professional, your impressive toolbox of skills will include market research, content creation, advertising & media planning, visual communications, digital marketing, and project management.
Fancy yourself a Marketing Manager? You'll develop marketing plans and lead the team to deliver results across all platforms. Or maybe you're a Marketing Analyst? You'll support the organisation's marketing efforts by analysing data and reporting on consumer and market insights. As an Advertising Manager, you'll take the creative lead, overseeing client projects and generating ideas for advertising campaigns.
By the time you hit the top job (Marketing Director or Chief Marketing Officer), you'll likely have a marketing degree - and possibly an MBA - with five years' experience managing teams, reviewing analytics, executing marketing campaigns and strategic plans.
