The top marketing employers rankings are dominated by Fast Moving Consumer Goods firms, with Colgate Palmolive, Unilever, Procter & Gamble, Mars Australia, Coca-Cola Amatil, and Reckitt Benckiser making it to the Top 25.

Colgate Palmolive’s first place ranking was helped by their recruitment practice of hiring throughout the year rather than several weeks during peak graduate and intern season, which increased the pool of eligible applicants. Similar practices favoured Mainfreight, which is best known as a logistics company.

Interestingly, Deloitte ranked 3rd in marketing whereas none of the other Big 4 professional services firms made the list. Deloitte’s marketing roles can be found in their Marketing, Communications and Business Development function, along with Deloitte Digital.
