The Role

We’re looking for intelligent, friendly and passionate people to join one our fast-growing SEO team. We’d love you to come help us pave the way to SEO superstardom.

SEO stands for ‘Search Engine Optimisation’, and is the practice of organically getting webpages to rank highly on search engines and improving a website to increase the number of visitors the site receives. SEO involves researching consumer behaviour to find the keywords users are searching, and optimising websites to serve the customer with the information they are looking for.

Life as an SEO Account Manager

• You will work with an array of clients from big to small and spanning a wide range of sectors

• You’ll be charged with taking clients’ objectives and building a robust SEO campaign to ensure that you’re adding real value

• There will be a mix of slotting in to existing SEO campaigns and helping to develop campaigns right from the initial website audit stage.

• You’ll analyse data, optimise campaigns, as well as keeping in touch regularly with your client to ensure they have the reports they need and understand what we’re doing to increase traffic, increase enquiries and maximise their return on investment

• You will report back to clients and make recommendations based on your analysis

• Whilst we expect you to have some experience using SEO, there's a great training programme to get you up to speed

• The focus of the job is simple: make sure your SEO campaigns continue to do better!

What we are looking for in you

We’re looking for enthusiastic people who are comfortable managing their own time, able to effectively prioritise work and recognise problems and opportunities to seek support as necessary. An aptitude for creative copy-writing with the ability to adapt your tone and style depending on the client you’re writing for is imperative and balancing that with a technical and analytical mind is all part of the fun of being an exceptional SEO professional.

• Intellectual curiosity and ambition are personality traits we love; you also must be a great team player!

• This is a fast-paced role and you will need to be an enthusiastic and well organised self-starter

• You must be able to work autonomously as well as within a team

• You must be articulate and confident in dealing with clients in a range of roles and organisations

• Strong written English is essential; you’ll be writing copy, communicating with clients via email and preparing reports

• You must be comfortable with spreadsheets and numeracy to be able to present information clearly and to reason your way through problems

• Experience of dealing with clients is hugely valuable

• You must have an outstanding academic record including the following (or equivalent):

• A predicted degree classification of 2:1 or above (in any subject)

At the point of application, the candidate must have the legal right to work in the UK as we are unable to sponsor visas as this time.
