Technical SEO Strategist

We’re looking for an experienced SEO Strategist to join our marketing team. This is a technical role and a working knowledge, built over a number of years, of factors influencing both on-site and off-site search are vital.

Agency experience is a benefit and a development/technical background is also a bonus.

Location: Leeds City Centre
Salary: Competitive
Hours: 37.5/week (flexitime)

Strictly no recruiters.

Skills & Qualities

Our marketing team is growing and with an increasing number of clients working with Parallax on an ongoing basis on strategy, search, PPC and social we’re looking to add a talented new member to our roster.

This role is split 60/40 between on-site optimisation/best practice and off-site strategy. You will work with the marketing team helping build a content strategy for Parallax’s clients that’s based on data and insight as well as aiding the PR team focus their efforts on the most effective sites to get content placed on.

While larger wholesale changes to websites will be implemented by the development team, it is expected that a working knowledge of HTML exists and that you are confident making smaller changes to markup on your own.

This is a practical role – we’re working towards (and are almost finished with!) automating all of our reporting for clients so we’re looking for someone who can see beyond the theory and make considered judgments appropriate for real world situations.

You must have extensive knowledge of and be able to take a pragmatic approach towards:

  • On-site technical audit and improvements
  • Small SEO-related HTML edits
  • Limited PHP edits
  • Keyword research
  • Ranking factors
  • Algorithm changes and updates
  • Google Analytics
  • Data analysis/BI
  • Solid leadership qualities

It would be a bonus if you have:

  • Experience working within a team
  • Agency experience
  • A firm grasp on what you believe best-practice to look like

Progression Opportunities
We expect someone who meets the goals and objectives of this role to be able to progress quickly and would be looking to fill other roles to support your work within 6-12 months.

We recognise that where you excel, the agency does as a whole too. Make a difference and you will be rewarded.
