 6th Jun 2023

Its official – Pivotal is ready to hire your Media Planning & Buying specialists. 


Are you a Brand or Agency looking to hire Media Planning and Buying candidates? Look no further!


We have witnessed a significant rise in salaries across our vast majority of clients in recent years. Although the market has slightly leveled out, there's still a range of 8.3% to 18% increase in salaries between 2020 and 2023.


One of the primary drivers behind these salary increases was the "mass resignation" trend, as agencies struggled to retain their valuable staff. More recently, the "Cost of Living Crisis" has further motivated individuals to explore new roles. Additionally, certain agencies have implemented hiring, pay increases, and promotion freezes, impacting their staff retention levels.


Transitioning to client-side roles has become an appealing option for agency candidates, as they offer higher salaries, bonuses, and potential share options. Furthermore, there is a noticeable shortage of skilled professionals in areas like AV, leading to increased competition and driving salaries up


While we aim to manage candidate expectations and set realistic salary growth targets, it remains a challenge. Many candidates are successfully achieving their desired salary increases by joining specific agencies or making the move to client-side roles.


You may not know this, but in the last 18 months Pivotal have helped our portfolio of clients hire over 60 Media Planning and Buying candidates.  


We are now delighted to develop this offering further by bringing in one of the markets best specialist recruiters, Phil Nunney, who has a deep understanding of the media industry's unique dynamics. His profound knowledge base, coupled with Pivotal's extensive network of industry professionals, and the fantastic Pivotal service you know and love.
