About the role

You will be confident in developing SEO strategies to improve our clients’ search and website performance.

Your tenacious approach means you can reverse engineer the competition to your advantage, understanding why and how they rank where they do.

You’ll be comfortable carrying out keyword research, know how to track rankings over time and be able to identify and optimise the right content for the correct intent.
