Skills Required for Marketing Jobs
Most Marketing Executive and Marketing Officer jobs generally require a degree or marketing qualification, together with previous experience of working in a marketing role. Experience does not usually have to be within the not for profit sector although this can be desirable for some organisations.
Marketing Manager jobs in charities attract professionals with previous experience of working within marketing and have a good understanding of the charity sector. Successful candidates should have strong management skills and practical knowledge of exploring new and developing media, managing contractors and good knowledge of databases. Ideally Marketing Managers will have a degree in Marketing or have professional qualifications, such as CIM.
