Digital media hiring levels in beverages dip in October – data

By Patrick Scott 16 Nov 2021

The proportion of drinks manufacturing and supply companies hiring for digital media-related positions slipped last month, according to recent research, with almost 76% recruiting for at least one position in the area.

The latest figure, which features in GlobalData’s latest analysis, is lower than the near-82% of companies who were looking to fill digital media-related vacancies in September. However, on a year-on-year basis, the rate was up on the 63.3% figure recorded in October 2020.



Of all advertised vacancies in the beverage industry last month, 5.4% were linked to digital media, representing the highest monthly figure recorded in the last year. The proportion was also higher than the same month in 2020, which was 4.4%.

The analysis shows that drinks manufacturing and supply companies are hiring for digital media jobs at a rate higher than the average for all companies within GlobalData's job analytics database. The average among all companies last month stood at 4.1%.


Digital media is one of the topics that GlobalData has identified as a key disruptive force facing companies in the coming years. Companies that invest in these areas now are considered better prepared for the future business landscape.
