Marketing staff willing to work long hours

People
working in the marketing sector accept long working hours as a necessary evil,
and are willing to work harder to get ahead, a survey has revealed.

A
new survey from recruitment agency Stopgap reveals that workers in the
marketing sector don’t see long hours as a negative aspect of their job, with
only a quarter saying work had interfered with their private lives.

Furthermore,
few respondents claimed to be experiencing the ill-effects of long-working
hours, with 97 per cent of the sample stating they had never had time off due
to stress.

Claire
Owen, managing director of Stopgap, said: "The findings suggest that
burning the midnight oil is one part of the job that is expected, can be
enjoyable, and also essentially helps you bond with your team."
