Are you ready to go global?

Oban International is a digital marketing agency specialising in international. We help our clients grow their businesses in any market on the planet.

We are growing fast and have a great opportunity for an experienced SEO Strategist to join our award-winning team.

We have great offices in Brighton opposite the beach and near the pier if you want to work in the office full or part-time – or you can work fully remotely if you prefer.

If you have good SEO experience, love working with clients and like being part of a happy, strong and supportive team, this is the opportunity for you.

About the role

As a Strategist you will be a senior member of our SEO team and report directly to the Head of Organic Media. You will be responsible for the SEO activities across a portfolio of clients, leading successful campaigns. You will work with senior clients.

We will expect you to create and lead the SEO strategy for your accounts and keep your clients ahead of the game by keeping up to date with SEO trends and developments and anticipating your clients’ longer-term needs.

We will ask you to manage and coach a team of SEO specialists, to work on new business with the business growth team, and to contribute to product and department development.

Our clients work across a variety of sectors and markets. You must be interested in other cultures and what makes people tick. Connecting cultures is central to our work and to achieving the best results for our clients.

Your responsibilities will include creating the SEO account strategy and roadmap. The role will also involve tactical planning and reporting. You will mentor and develop junior members of the team and quality assure their work.

You will build strong relationships with your clients and communicate your strategy and tactics clearly, as well as reporting on performance, always looking for ways to evolve and improve all aspects of what we do.

About you
