About the SEO Manager role

Join a collaborative, creative, and agile team as our latest SEO Manager – You’re not just an SEO whiz; you’re the one who understands the digital dance of technical and content SEO.

This role includes everything from keyword research to tracking traffic, sales, and rankings to optimise our position for global growth across all our brand sites. You’ll help develop and implement our overall content marketing strategy, ensuring everything is SEO-optimised in multiple languages for our audiences around the world. You’re not just familiar with the essentials for robust organic traffic and a top-notch user experience – you’re the expert who identifies and fixes issues in Google’s site crawl performance. Building our online connections and devising a killer Digital PR strategy? That’s right up your alley, too. If it’s data-driven, you’re all over it.

  • Multi-brand/multi-client experience or global brand experience is highly desirable.
  • Proven experience in an online tech-based environment or with tech clients, or retail / ecommerce – although we’re a Web Hosting business, our approach is more B2C than B2B.
