London’s marketing managers are least well paid in the country

Highest marketing salaries in South East (outside London) where marketers earn an average salary of &pound68,600

Scotland is most affordable UK place to live for marketing managers

London’s marketing managers are the least well paid in the country, receiving salaries 13.5% lower than the national average for their positions.

Marketing recruiter EMR polled over 2700 marketing professionals and found that marketing managers in London currently earn an average salary of &pound34,600 and are the least well paid in the UK. The country’s highest earning marketing managers are those based in the South East (outside London) and they currently receive an average of &pound45,400 – 31% more than their peers in London. The next highest earning marketing managers are from East Anglia and Scotland respectively.

Simon Bassett, managing director of EMR said: “At first glance, the news that managers in the City have the lowest salaries in the country is astonishing. London is a magnet for graduates wanting to get into the creative professions and as a result, there’s huge competition for roles all the way up to manager level with employers able to secure talented professionals for lower salaries.

“The popularity of the capital means younger professionals are demanding pay hikes to leave and this has pushed average salaries in all regions of the UK to a higher level. In entry and middle level positions there is an inverse London weighting in the marketing industry. The good news for London’s marketers is that people rise to manager level relatively quickly in the capital – and once they’ve passed that level, it’s a different story.
