Are you frustrated by your current SEO role?

Keen to mix your technical and creative skills on bigger and better projects?

Do you have a desire for good customer service and the ability to explain complex subjects in a way everyone can understand?

Then you need to talk to our client. They're looking for experienced SEO professionals who can handle multiple projects at once, whilst providing excellent communication to their clients. They'll provide the opportunities to work with interesting clients and sensible budgets, you need to provide the technical, creative and outreach/PR expertise.

They'll also provide you with learning opportunities, career development and a relaxed, fun environment with the freedom to work as you choose and our support to experiment with new tactics and technologies. This is definitely not a big battery-farm agency where you have 100 clients nor a place where the managing director tells you how every little thing should be done!

Our client have won awards for their use of technology and creativity. They have excellent independent feedback from staff past and present about the working environment ("It's very relaxed but not in a lazy way... Here everything you do is valued... the right formula to lead a team and make them feel rewarded and feel at ease.") They deliver great results for clients who appreciate their work.

Ideally at least one years' experience in a relevant role, preferably with experience of a variety of websites/clients. You will be capable of managing your own time and priorities, responding to client requests at short notice and carrying out your own research but knowing when to ask for help. You'll need a genuine interest in the digital marketing industry, a thirst for knowledge and perhaps a bit of a competitive streak.
