SEO and Per Pay Click (PPC) Coordinator - The Marketing Eye


Closing date: 09/01/2018

We are a uniquely experienced marketing company and PR agency, specialising in financial services, professional services and business-to-business marketing.

Job Description:

What does the role entail?

We’re recruiting for a new role that’s entirely focused on increasing the visibility of our clients’ businesses through organic and paid search and display advertising.

Our clients are predominantly within the financial services sector and are often new or challenger brands.

What are the must haves/nice to haves?

You must be focused on meeting and exceeding the objectives for each individual client – everything else is secondary.

You need to be proficient in on and off-page activity for all relevant search engines and pay-per-click platforms, programmatic, video, display and native marketing – and be up-to-date with the latest technical developments.

We expect you to be thorough in everything you do – understand the context for a client’s results, what’s actually happened, why it’s happened, and what we’re going to do next.

We expect you to be tenacious, have a great eye for detail, be able to articulate sometimes complex issues, and be confident enough to challenge our current processes and thinking.

We offer you the challenge you’d expect from any marketing agency – and more. We love it when our clients present us with complex problems as it enhances our own development and ability to offer an even better service.

You will be able to manage a project from start to finish, establishing and meeting timelines and key milestones.
