Who are we looking for?

An ideal applicant would be an SEO Account Manager with two to three years experience working in an agency environment. Exceptional writing skills and a genuine interest in digital marketing are essential. You will have a solid working knowledge of SEO best practices and considerable experience working on SEO campaigns. Key skills include:

  • An excellent working knowledge of the fundamentals of SEO – onsite, content and link building.
  • Exceptional written and verbal English with an ability to write sharp, concise and on-brand copy for clients across a range of mediums.
  • A university degree is great but not a strict requirement – we care far more about your approach, passion, experiences and skills.
  • Confident managing clients and other stakeholders.
  • Ability to adapt to a range of different clients and industries.
  • Analytical mind and a commitment to being client-obsessed in everything you do.
  • Confidence to network and build relationships.
  • A talent for generating compelling and RIO-focussed content ideas.
  • Excellent organisation skills and an ability to manage deadlines, your workload and the expectations of clients, colleagues and suppliers.
  • A love and genuine interest in digital marketing.
  • Highly commercially focused – we love working with people who get excited and enthused about all elements of how a company works.
  • Self-motivated, driven, and engaging.
  • A real sense of urgency tempered by the ability to keep calm under pressure.
  • A love for dogs (we have an office dog!)

  • Working with the leadership and Directors to renew accounts. 
  • Directly managing any SEO executives working on accounts.
  • Working in partnership with the Directors to ensure that accounts achieve gross margin, billable hours and hourly allocation targets.

We believe in creating a happy, exciting working culture.

  • Competitive salary, based on experience.
