A new report suggests that there has been a healthy upswing in hiring across the media and entertainment sectors across a range of job functions.

Permanent vacancy levels within media and entertainment across all the main business functions: Sales marketing and digital; HR; office support; finance; legal and executive search, have risen by almost 40% in January when compared with the average totals across November and December.

This is according to specialist media and entertainment recruiter Handle which has just released the first of a regular quarterly report which tracks the percentage increase/decrease across all of its specialist disciplines.

“The digital space is obviously huge,” says Dominic Warman, who heads up Handle’s Marketing Division, “particularly within media and entertainment and there is a real need for specialists to help organisations understand how consumers interact with content – and then build meaningful and relevant relationships with those consumers.” Average salaries increased from £34,000 to £40,000 suggesting a trend towards more senior hires.

Commenting on the results of this report, Peter Tafler, Managing Director said: “While there is no doubt that it is still a very competitive job market, our core markets of TV, film music and media are undoubtedly in the market for talent”
