Are you our new SEO Trainee?

Here's what we need

Salary: £18,000 - £22,000

Your Role

We are excited to announce our new Trainee Programme, where successful candidates will undertake three months of SEO training, provided by our in-house experts. This is a three month fixed term contract, with the view to go permanent after successfully completing our programme. The programme will provide you with a broad background in what SEO is, how it works, and prepare you to contribute to our success when graduating as a RocketMill SEO Executive.

We are passionate about organic search optimisation, brilliant digital experiences, and the pursuit of technical excellence. You will be accountable for supporting the technical integrity of clients’ websites and digital properties.

To achieve this, you will have an understanding of how websites are built – not just on a technical level, but also their stakeholders and workflows. You will be comfortable working alongside developers, ideally within agile workflows. You will also be proficient in providing non-technical stakeholders with clear, concise and jargon-free recommendations.

RocketMill aspires to be valued for the quality of its thinking as well as the quality of its doing. Therefore, you will take ownership of SEO performance for your clients, playing an active role in developing strategies and KPIs for your channel and our overall campaigns.

Finally, you will bring an open mind and a forward-thinking approach, able to help us succeed in a world where search engines are not the only means to attract organic traffic.
