Our client is a long established independent digital agency based in Manchester.  It's a full service digital team with a great reputation for digital marketing.  We're currently looking for someone to head up their SEO team.  To be considered for this role, we are looking for an SEO Manager with around 5 years agency experience. You'll be leading a small team and it is essential that you can lead by example.  So you'll have advanced understanding of technical SEO - both off-site and on-site and you will have the ability to run complete technical and content audits.  As Head of SEO, you will work directly with the Head of Digital Marketing, The PPC & Analytics team and the Project Management team to ensure all work for clients is delivered with SEO in mind and with the required level of optimisation.  An ability to work collaboratively is essential and you should be confident and credible working with senior level client decision makers as you will be driving strategy and helping them develop sound SEO plans that will deliver results.  A good all-round knowledge of digital marketing is required along with familiarity with all key SEO tools (Analytics, Search Console, Google Tag, Majestic, SearchMetrics etc).     This is an exciting role that could suit someone working in a larger digital agency and finding that progression to a senior role is not forthcoming but we're also happy to talk to individuals at smaller agencies looking to step up.  It's a great agency, a lovely culture and an agency where it is possible to have a good work life balance.  To find out more, please contact Fiona Christian ASAP.
