Mar 24, 2021 3:50:34 PM

The world of digital recruitment has certainly been a whirlwind in the last 12 months, particularly when working within the ecommerce industry.

Our annual ecommerce salary survey & insights report is almost ready to share - and it's full of intriguing developments, especially since the Covid-19 pandemic. So we don't keep you waiting on tenterhooks, the pandas felt a bit generous.

That's's time for some teasers from the report! As we said, some of the developments are very surprising though we understand the last 12 months have been different to say the least.

Ecommerce career goals have shifted

When it comes to ecommerce jobs, the people in the industry are very career driven. As such, their career goals mean a lot to them.

While career progressions remains the number one goal from 2020, there are some new goals this year that have no doubt been born from the pandemic situation. What are they, you ask? You will find out very soon!

Ecommerce & Digital team challenges

It is safe to say teams across the globe faced challenges they never expected in the last 12 months. In 2020 (pre-pandemic), respondents expected 'falling behind in digital' to be the number one challenge. They probably weren't wrong, with so many businesses having to quickly supercharge their online activity and presence.

There have been some changes this year, with uncertainty playing a big part in that. We will reveal the top challenges when the report launches.

Covid-19 impact on the ecommerce industry

A new section in our questionnaire focused on the undoubtable hot topic...Covid-19. There are many questions to cover, like how respondents roles were affected or if they have since returned to the office.

We can't share all of the results, but 42% of respondents believe that more wellbeing meetings should be taking place during this tough time. 

The ecommerce working week

In 2020, 30% of respondents said they worked a 40 hour week, excluding overtime. This year, that number has risen a significant amount. Is this down to people working more hours because they are at home? Will this mean work-life balance has suffered since 2020? We will reveal all soon...
