We are a lively, expanding company based in the historic city of Lichfield. Our brand Cable.co.uk is the UK’s leading, privately owned, broadband comparison website - offering impartial, relevant and consumer focussed content.

About you

Digital Marketing is core to what we do - In support of this we’re currently looking for an elite Digital Marketer, with a profound knowledge of SEO to join an expanding team of talented professionals with wide-ranging interests and a keen sense of fun and camaraderie.

We are looking for an SEO leader, someone who can inspire, drive and help shape our future strategy - ensuring we are delivering enticing, relevant and engaging content that helps drive business performance, increases our brand awareness and helps enhance our user experience.

SEO will sit at the heart of our organisation and therefore the successful candidate will work with all teams, collaborating with them to generate ideas and drive innovation based on the insight they’ve derived from analytics.

Relentless in your pursuit, you will always be on the look out for new SEO guidance, techniques and best practice - using this knowledge to test, learn and improve our approach to optimisation.

A methodical approach will be needed to analyse and assess our sites, constantly making improvements, fixing issues, identifying new opportunities and ensuring they’re optimised to their full potential.

The successful candidate will be joining a company experiencing substantial growth and the aspiration to become the market leader in our field. With this in mind, applicants must be able to demonstrate commercial experience along with how their previous work has positively impacted revenue and other key performance indicators.

This is a truly great opportunity to play an important role in an expanding company, and to be a major contributor to a team that will be at the heart of this expansion. If you’re looking to apply your years of experience in a role where you can really make a lasting contribution, this could be for you - and we’d love to hear from you.
