Have you got serious passion for SEO? Are you ambitious and performance driven? Are you looking for an opportunity to become a key part in the UK’s #1 integrated search agency? Do you think you can handle the growth of our awesome agency? Then we have the job for you.

You no longer have to travel into London to work with the best, MRS Digital is a long established and rapidly-growing agency, with fantastic core values, work ethos and a shed load of agency awards to back this up. We encourage a diverse workplace culture that allows people to have fun and thrive, whilst pushing the envelope and being just a little weird.

Now, as we look forward to a post pandemic 2023, it’s time to welcome some ambitious talent to our fantastic team.

MRS are looking for the perfect candidate to become a very key part in our fast-growing team, in a role as an SEO Executive. Hybrid or fully agency, we’re just as open as you are.

The role will work very closely with the SEO team and other teams, focusing on strategic and technical SEO implementation across a range of our key clients. Your role will be hugely varied, including campaign-based SEO, multi-channel projects, new web builds and more. You’ll be working with a range of MRS clients, which include well-known brands, big ecommerce sites, and highly competitive global businesses with big budgets.

Of course, the ideal candidate will have worked within a digital marketing agency in an SEO focused role, but we’re realistic. What we’re looking for more than anything is evidence of successful SEO work, either brand side or agency.

We welcome SEO practitioners who have specialised too. So, if you’re an ecommerce whizz but haven’t done much offsite SEO, don’t let that put you off!

This opportunity is perfect for someone who’s highly motivated and looking to use all their skills to quickly progress their career. The right candidate will have the opportunity to leave their mark, making an impact personally and to the agency.
