As new websites emerge and companies look to improve their online marketing strategies, experts in Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) are frequently in demand. An SEO Manager is responsible for leading these Marketing initiatives and recruitment agencies can provide staff who are able to boost a firm's organic web results.
SEO Management jobs are commonly available in-house, however employment consultancies will also recruit Managers for Marketing agencies. As many SEO Managers are hired on a project by project basis, flexibility is available to candidates who may prefer to be employed on a fixed-term contract. While a Marketing or Digital recruiter may have a specialist knowledge of search engine optimisation, many multi-sector firms will also fill senior SEO vacancies.
Candidates in this profession will be employed by a company to improve how their website performs in online search results. These senior professionals may lead a team of SEO Executives and undertake duties such as link building, keyword research and keeping up with algorithm changes. Recruitment agencies will typically search for candidates with at least three years of experience, preferably with a degree in a Marketing related discipline. A proven track record within a similar permanent position is also highly beneficial.
