My client is recruiting for a Search Marketing Consultant to join their highly successful 12-person SEO team in one of the North East's most prestigious digital agencies.



About the role:


You’ll have experience of designing and developing successful search strategies to achieve clients’ objectives, as well as a deep understanding of the “nuts and bolts” of SEO implementation, particularly technical optimisation and content development.


Previous agency SEO experience would be valuable, but we’re also happy to consider those with experience gained via an in-house position, freelance work or personal projects. In addition to SEO and digital marketing experience, we’re looking for strong account management, presentation and client communication skills.


Strategy Development: Build a deep understanding of your clients’ needs and priorities, and create tailored SEO strategies that will help them achieve their goals.


Strategy Implementation: Monitor the performance of SEO strategies, and develop creative ways to improve them. Constantly look for improvements, and support the SEO team and client teams to deliver these.


Reporting & Analysis: Continually monitor campaign and overall service performance and identify areas of improvement, then take action to address them, escalating issues or building business cases where appropriate.

Client Communication: Take responsibility for maintaining a close relationship with clients, and communicate well with key stakeholders to ensure that SEO strategies are tailored to their needs.

Technical SEO: Maintain a high level of technical SEO knowledge, and perform in-depth technical audits as well as identifying complex or nonstandard issues.


Multi-Channel SEO: Understand the role and processes of wider SEO services, including content and outreach activities, and how they contribute to overall SEO strategy and campaign effectiveness.


Project Management: Design and manage the implementation of campaign plans, ensuring campaigns perform and client objectives are delivered on time and on budget



What you’ll be able to offer:


Creative ideas: You’ll be experienced in developing creative strategies to increase the clients’ visibility online, as well as coming up with suggestions and ideas to improve our overall service-level processes and methodology.


An analytical mind-set: You’ll be good at investigating, solving problems and telling stories with data, whether that’s diving into report data to find a solution to a problem, or building projections to back up your recommendations.


Technical savvy: You’ll have a detailed knowledge of technical SEO, as well as basic web technologies like HTML and CSS, and you’ll be comfortable explaining complex technical concepts to those with less experience.


Organisational skills: You’ll be confident managing a challenging workload, overseeing complex and multi-service projects, working to deadlines and prioritising tasks to keep on top of multiple campaigns, clients and other tasks.


Initiative and Enthusiasm: We need somebody who can help shape and progress the agency’s offering, not just follow instructions. You’ll have a knack for identifying new opportunities and areas for improvement, and putting forward a persuasive case for your recommendations where necessary.
