We’re interested in talking to experienced Heads of SEO/SEO Directors looking for their next opportunity, as we look to expand Blue Array into Brighton.

The role

Initially, we’re looking for someone who can hit the ground running and take ownership of a number of our client accounts, from both a relationship management and ‘hands on’ perspective. You won’t be afraid of getting your hands dirty, and will enjoy the technical, analytical and creative nuances that make up a successful SEO campaign.

As your client portfolio grows you’ll then quickly hire supporting team members to work with you, whilst having the full support of the main office and senior management team in Reading.

We have an extensive induction programme to teach you the “Blue Array Way”, and you’ll be given all the training and tools you’ll need to help you flourish in this role. This will mean you’ll need to spend the first couple of months training in our Reading office, so you can learn about our working practices and culture, which we want to ensure is replicated in this new office. Accommodation will be paid during this embedding period if commuting is not feasible.

Your role will initially entail:

  • Responsibility for the SEO performance of our clients working to deliver on a clear and agreed strategy/roadmap.
  • Keyword research & input with content creation.
  • Ability to build successful relationships and work within a broader client team, e.g. in-house developers, content writers, social media team etc.
  • Monitoring sites on a daily, weekly & monthly basis and ensure that the SEO channel is achieving its targets (North Star Metrics) for our clients.
  • Collaborate and share initiatives, best practices and results with the wider team.
  • Proactively keeping up to date with the latest SEO trends.
  • Educating other areas of the business who indirectly impact SEO category performance.

Your role will then move into:

  • Line managing an SEO team, including their workload, quality of output/communication and ongoing career development
  • Responsibility for managing the budgets for the (x location) office
  • Hiring candidates (with the help of our Talent & Happiness Manager)
  • Meeting clients in London and managing resourcing for their needs.

Why You?

If you want to work in a supportive, collaborative environment made up of passionate individuals wanting to make a real difference for their clients then you’ll fit right in here.

Our perfect hire will…..

  • Be absolutely and infectiously passionate about SEO, and on the pulse with the latest trends and issues affecting the industry
  • Have both an analytical & creative mind-set, with a strong eye for detail and ability to problem-solve
  • Be a highly confident communicator, with excellent writing and speaking skills
  • Have excellent time/task management skills
  • Have significant experience owning responsibilities
  • Have an excellent understanding of traffic and conversion measurement, experience with interpreting such data and deriving insight
  • Be seasoned at producing in-depth analysis and reporting on business KPIs
  • Possess excellent planning, organisation and communication skills, and have the ability to self-manage and keep track of multiple projects streams
