About the gig: 

This gig is an exceptional opportunity for an experienced and forward-thinking SEO Specialist to take ownership, put your mark on the agency’s SEO offering, and help champion the SEO team to great success!

As the Senior SEO Specialist, you’ll be acting as a mentor and support to the existing and more junior members of the SEO team, as well as providing training, development, and strategic SEO guidance across the agency. In other words, you’ll really get to own your space! You will be instrumental in building client relationships and it will be really important that you’re dedicated to offering best-in-class SEO for a select set of top-tier clients in your team’s portfolio. Being part of the product leadership team means you will play a key role in leading the innovation and improvement of all things SEO for the agency, staying at the forefront of the industry, algorithm changes, and setting best practice and the pace of growth. (cool right?)

And you? Well, you’ll of course have that SEO “je ne sais quoi”. You’ll need to be comfortable taking the lead on all things SEO for the agency and at a point in your career where you feel confident in your ability to both create and evolve SEO strategy. You thrive when delighting top-tier clients, stay up-to-date with the technicalities of the gig, and are comfortable providing support and mentorship to the junior members of your team. All in a beautifully synchronous way.

To make this role a shining success, you’ll be someone who lives and breathes SEO, understands agency land, and thrives on being innovative in your marketing approach. You’ll be at the forefront of the SEO team, but you’ll need to be comfortable rolling up your sleeves and taking ownership of client work. You’re a natural problem solver who gets their kicks from continuously being committed to delivering the best results. And if you had to sum it up, you’d describe yourself as someone who’s passionate about your work, which we hope will filter down and inspire your team and clients. 

Here’s a look at what you’ll be owning and evolving in the role: 

  • Set the SEO strategy for both existing clients and new client pitches;
  • Design and execute best practice SEO campaigns in line with client objectives;
  • Liaise with your clients at a senior level on a day-to-day via email, phone, meetings, and more;

  • Assist with SEO insights and research for new business opportunities or expanding existing clients;
  • Stay up to date within the industry to spot opportunities for the agency and their clients;

  • Maintain team operations and processes to ensure high-quality standards of work;
  • Develop processes, templates, and solutions for your team; AND

  • Client-facing experience and confidence to walk into client meetings, presentations, and pitches straight away;
  • A commercial mindset;
  • Previous agency experience;
