Job Opportunity – SEO Expert

Join The Loom Digital Team

Loom is an award-winning digital marketing agency based in central Bristol, but you can choose to work in the office, from home, or a mixture of both. We’re passionate about transforming businesses through innovative digital marketing strategies, bringing together SEO, Content Marketing, Biddable media, and Social Media.

With an agency emphasis on collaboration within a supportive culture, we help businesses build a digital presence that works commercially for them. We develop bespoke strategies that help our clients achieve their growth goals.

We actively invest in our people at Loom, helping them become the best they possibly can both in and out of work. As an agency, we’ve got exciting plans, and this is a perfect time to join.

We’re looking for an enthusiastic and experienced SEO expert to join our growing team in Bristol’s creative quarter. Ideally, you’ll already have cut your SEO teeth with experience in a similar role, at an agency or in-house.

About the Role

Working within the SEO and Content team, your work will help clients to achieve their business objectives. You’ll be joining an experienced team, but that shouldn’t limit your ability to make your mark on our SEO service.

You will devise and deliver targeted SEO work across our 4 pillars of SEO: search, technical SEO, backlinks and user experience. As an SEO expert, you’ll be responsible for project research, delivery & analysis. Ideally, you’ll feel as comfortable writing title tags as you do carrying out a full keyword research project or running technical audits to identify technical onsite SEO improvements.

You will be required to work on stand-alone SEO projects, as well as on projects that form part of our integrated digital marketing service.
