Your Career Journey
A typical marketing career starts with you gaining experience as an intern or an assistant. You will usually have to work as a junior for a couple of years before moving up! Your salary can be anything between between £16k-£23k depending on the size of the company.
Marketing Exec / Manager
The next stage is the journey from Marketing Executive to a Marketing Manager. Both roles will have graduated to managing campaigns autonomously, with the key difference being that a manager will typically have a team to manage, be a bit more experienced and get paid a bit more. It's at this point in their careers that people often make the choice to specialise and focus on one area (such as SEO, PPC, Social Media or Email Marketing) or stick to being a generalist e.g a Marketing Manager and do a bit of everything, Your salary can be roughly anything between between £30K-£60k at this level. With some managerial positions reaching £70 or 80k.
Marketing VP, Director and Beyond...
If you have worked your whole career in marketing maybe you may end up as Vice President Marketing or a Marketing Director. These roles come with a highly competitive salary and will usually be paid more than £70K. At this point, maybe you will opt to create your own company... or become a contractor or freelancer now that you have some lots of experience. The world is your *marketing* oyster so to speak!
