SEO Strategist

We are looking for talented, experienced organic search specialists who have an interest in internationalisation. If you have technical SEO experience gained in an agency, revel in being at the cutting edge of organic search and are looking for a fresh challenge somewhere you will feel rewarded then we may just have the opportunity for you.

About the Role

Working in one of our multidisciplinary teams as a technical SEO expert you will work on a series of campaigns for a range of exciting clients, all of whom have an international focus. Campaigns range from short term projects such as migration or app optimisation to ongoing campaigns. You will get to work as a strategist on everything from technical audits and implementation to keyword research and planning.

The role would suit someone who finds it easy to explain technical details to non technical people and who enjoys sharing their technical knowledge as there will be a high degree of client interaction. In addition there will be an element of QA for more junior team members which will provide a great development opportunity for someone looking to gain mentoring/management experience.
