Reporting to:

Deputy Head of SEO

The successful candidate:

The successful candidate will have at least two years’ experience working in SEO, in an agency or client-side role.

The candidate will demonstrate a comprehensive knowledge of organic search engine optimisation, with considerable experience consulting on medium to large technical SEO projects. The successful candidate will undertake website audits, keyword research and backlink analyses as a core part of their role, and must be comfortable to deliver exemplary documentation ahead of deadlines using a suite of industry-leading software and tools.

The digital landscape is always evolving, so it is imperative the successful candidate keeps their SEO knowledge up-to-date. They will, for example, demonstrate understanding of opportunities for international SEO, mobile optimisation, and conversational search. Moreover, RocketMill aspires to place data at the heart of all we do, so you must hold Google Analytics IQ certification, and show experience of using SEO analytical tools.

The ideal candidate will recognise the pivotal role user experience plays in modern organic visibility. Experience developing large-scale information architecture is highly desirable, as is hands-on experience of supporting migrations (platform and protocol).

We are a small team, so the most important requirement of all is to get stuck in and make your mark – to benefit your clients, agency, and career.
