Argyll Scott UK launches Contract Marketing desk

8 Jan 9:00 by Bradley Feller

We’re delighted to announce we’ve expanded our offering to include Contract Marketing recruitment.


The UK marketing industry has changed dramatically in the last 5 – 10 years. As the workload of most marketing teams has increased, smart companies have chosen to mitigate the effects of this by turning to mid-level interim marketers to cope with workload and provide additional support.


Why hire marketing contractors?

  • Be more agile – Interim/contract marketers can be utilised for fluctuations in work, while not being a permanent cost to your business. You’re completely in control of the length of the contract.

  • Enhance your capability – Marketing contractors can plug a specific skill set that your current in-house team is lacking for a specific project.

  • Get cover on maternity & paternity leave or long-term sickness – Interims allow for continuity while the current incumbent is on long-term leave, ensuring you don’t lose out on productivity.

  • Overcome headcount restrictions – Interims can be a great way to get around permanent headcount sign-off issues, as they’re a resource you can categorise under marketing spend instead of headcount.

  • Save on external agency costs – Hire interim marketers to undertake certain work which would previously have gone to an agency at a higher cost.

  • Access brilliant talent – The combination of exposure to varied work and personal flexibility has led to an influx of top tier marketers making a move into the interim market. You’re able to harness this talent in a cost-effective way.


Argyll Scott has a dedicated Marketing recruitment team, placing mid-management to board level marketing and digital specialists.
