We're looking for a Performance Content Manager to join our SEO team as we embark on our next stage of growth. This is an exciting and challenging role for a creative and motivated self-starter to come in and lead a blue-chip client portfolio.

We're looking for someone who can lead content strategy across on-page and off-page, but ideally someone with strong experience in, and a heavier leaning towards, outreach and digital PR.

The ideal candidate will be a digital PR specialist but will have an all-round SEO knowledge and good experience working on content and outreach campaigns. You should be able to develop a content plan/strategy that is tied to organic search objectives and come with your own 'black book' of contacts within the journalism and influencer space.

Interest in web analytics and an ability to use data to back arguments
A creative thinker, you'll have a good eye for the type of content that will get traction
