BD & Marketing Market Trends Report - H1 2023

Discover the key trends that matter to BD, Marketing & Communications professionals working in Legal, Accountancy and Consultancy firms across the UK.

So far in 2023, at the senior end of the market, we have seen an increase in BD & Marketing roles at both UK and US headquartered firms, with a fair few of these being new headcount.

The market continues to be competitive for talent with most candidates being involved in multiple job processes. Salaries have increased significantly across the board over the last 18 months and some firms are still going through a process of recalibrating where some of their bandings should sit. As the market continues to be very competitive, we still expect there to be pressure on salaries, particularly as it seems to be such a strong motivating factor for candidates moving roles.

Counter offers continue to be very prevalent in the market. Following a fierce year of hiring, firms and their hiring managers have been very aware of the challenges of replacing headcount and therefore have been even more motivated to retain their current staff.
