Following on from our executive level salary insights research, we have continued to analyse our historic placement data from 2018 to highlight some of the biggest changes to the Business-to-Business (B2B) marketing sector in the North of England.
Overall, Forward Role recorded a 8.5% growth in salaries across B2B marketing for 2018, an increase of 23% on the previous 12-months.
The highest paying roles we recorded came from Marketing Directors at Software as a Service (SaaS) businesses (£123,452 per year on average), £35,565 more than their counterparts within traditional B2B marketing roles (£87,887 per year on average).
Interestingly at management level, Bid Managers were the highest paid specialism in 2018, with an average salary of £47,153 - £10,351 more than traditional Marketing Managers who earnt £36,802.
Also on the specialist side, Product Marketing Managers earnt an average of £42,005, just slightly more than Digital Marketing Managers who earnt an average of £40,015. The increase in both of these roles is likely down to the rapid growth we’ve seen in the region’s technology sector and more specifically software as a service propositions.
