Senior SEO Specialist

Are you a natural analyst? Can you apply creative thinking to broad datasets to stay ahead of the ever-changing search engine landscape? Are you in your element when balancing all things SEO to create a user-tailored experience to maximise results?

If so, then we have a great opportunity that you won’t want to pass up on. Due to recent business growth, we’re on the lookout for a talented Senior SEO Specialist to join our team.

You’ll be responsible for helping to drive SEO strategies that will secure higher search ranking positions and grow organic traffic for both our clients and our agency. As our ideal candidate, you’ll have at least two years’ experience in a senior SEO role, and will be able to demonstrate expertise in search engine optimisation and content creation. You’ll also have a strong understanding of key industry tools like Google Analytics and Google Search Console. As well as relevant third party solutions, the best SEO practices, and organic link building.

You’ll be joining a team that delivers consistent and award-winning results for some of the biggest brand names out there. We were thrilled to be recognised as “Best Agency in the UK for Client Satisfaction” by The Drum, and we’ve also been consistently acknowledged as a leading global agency by Clutch over the last 4 years. That’s the approach that we take with our SEO campaigns: we’re not just looking for quick wins that can quickly turn stale. We’re looking for consistent, data-driven, best practices that transform long-term prospects.

You’ll be able to keep in line with – and add to – our existing high-quality SEO services. You’ll be willing and able to take the technical lead in both on-site and off-site SEO, having excellent initiative, and possessing the ability to adapt to challenges across a wide variety of industries. You’ll also have the ability to communicate SEO insights clearly, and in an engaging fashion.
