As a Senior SEO Consultant in our SEO Team, you will report directly to our Head of SEO.

We are passionate about organic search optimisation, brilliant digital experiences, and the pursuit of technical excellence.

Moreover, you will be accountable for the technical integrity of clients’ websites and digital properties.

To achieve this, you will have an excellent understanding of how websites are built – not just on a technical level, but also their stakeholders and workflows.
