We’re market leading and award winning within many of the sectors we operate in which include business recovery, financial advisory & funding and property services.  

We are looking for an SEO Strategist to work under the guidance of our SEO Manager. The ideal candidate will be responsible for planning, executing, and optimising our digital marketing strategy.

  • Operate within a digital team made up with experts in content, social media, SEO, paid media and UX.
What will we do?

As a broader PLC group we’ve doubled in size since 2019 and we have ambitions to maintain that growth profile moving forwards, so we’re looking for people who want to help us shape our future.  We value applied intellect, curiosity and an entrepreneurial spirit and we’re committed to creating an inclusive environment where everyone can thrive.  We do this by:

  • Supporting your professional development, this starts on day 1 as we help you learn about our Group and then we offer ‘development opportunities for all’ so you can tailor your learning to achieve your personal and professional goals 
  • Empowering you to manage your wellbeing and supporting flexible working arrangements
  • Being community centered and encouraging you to build your connections across our Group, whether that’s through our Colleague Networks, or by connecting with others at a similar stage of their career, as well as building your connections with local communities by using your volunteering day or perhaps promoting our industries at local schools, colleges and universities.
