For many organisations bringing marketing services in house can be a key milestone, it represents the point at which a business would rather have full control over their marketing and communications output, rather than relying on often expensive agencies.

However, it can be hard to decided exactly what kind of staffing structure works for your future marketing team, where you should start and what skill set your first higher should have. It is important that organisations have confidence that the marketing professional they are hiring does indeed have the skill set required to succeed.

So whether you are considering bringing marketing in house and want to recruit new staff, develop systems and processes or if you want to up skill existing staff, Harris Consulting Services are able to partner with you to ensure you get the right skills, systems and processes in place.

RECRUITMENT SUPPORT

So, you’ve decided you need to hire a marketeer, whether it’s a marketing executive, assistant or even a director, ensuring you make the right hire can be a stressful and difficult process. Most prospective clients know what they want their new marketeer to do, roughly, but establishing the exact skill set required and filtering through the mountains of CVs can drive even the most experienced business managers to distraction.

Harris Consulting Services can support you with every step through from putting together the specification for exactly what role you need and can support, through to writing the job descriptions, filtering the CVs and even sitting in with you on the interviews.

We are not recruiters, so our rates are the same whether you are recruiting an Apprentice or CMO and because we are your advisors, we are fully committed to ensuring the best outcome for your business.

SYSTEM AND PROCESS REVIEW

Most marketing manager and directors will be comfortable establishing their own marketing systems and processes, however for smaller businesses that might only have one or two marketing staff this isn’t always possible.

The key benefit of outsourcing the setup of your Marketing Systems and Processes to Harris Consulting Services is that after working with you to establish the parameters, we will deliver to you all of the processes, systems and guidance you need to establish your department.

DEPARTMENT SET UP AND GROWTH

If you are in the position where you need to set up a marketing department but don’t know where to start you may want to take advantage of our department set up and growth service. We will come into your business and support you with the framework, systems, processes, software, equipment and of course recruitment of your new marketing department.

This service is equally valuable to smaller businesses that need to expand their marketing function to meet business growth needs but are not sure where to start. HCS will support you in establishing the who, why and how of your marketing department, whether the growth needed is one additional FTE or entire departments.
