Overtime stacks up for senior marketers
A breakdown of overtime by job category suggests that senior marketers are working significantly longer hours than their junior counterparts.
More than a third of marketers (39%) work at least five hours more than their contracted weekly hours, while 12% regularly do more than 10 extra hours, according to the latest Marketing Week Career and Salary Survey. Marketers in senior roles tend to work significantly longer hours than their junior counterparts, with 44% of board-level marketers working 10 or more hours over their standard contract versus only 10% of junior managers.
However, senior marketers receive significantly better perks, with 62% of board directors confirming they receive private medical insurance as part of their remuneration package compared to 38% of junior managers.
