    Thanks for this post. I am a SEO expert. I want to join multi national company

  • SEO RI

    Will you hire an american? I love the UK.

  • James

    We will employ anyone suitable for the job. However I wouldn’t say relocation is a good idea for a junior role!

  • Colin Boyd

    How’s your recruitment going? we’re in the same position in Scotland and where thinking of blogging about it.

  • James

    Going quite badly actually. I think the major problem is that it is a junior graduate position so the people we are trying to get are computing students leaving Uni. I doubt many of them search for SEO job vacancies they are more likely looking for programming or design jobs etc.

  • rubeina

    Hope you get the right person for this job, people often take seo for granted thinking it’s just submissions, submissions and just submissions. I’d suggest you to take someone who has experience in the field or as you said interested in internet marketing.

  • Brendan

    Can you tell me when the planned closing date for applications is? I would be very interested in applying.

  • James

    The position has actually just been conditionally filled. However due to the volume of work we have we are considering taking on another applicant with an aim to start around May. Therefore we are happy to accept applications/cvs up until then.

    In fact if your looking for a graduate type position within SEO/SEM etc we will accept applications throughout the year as there has been a large influx of work.

    @Rubeina Yes I agree, though I find this industry a bit strange to recruit for. As there is no qualification in SEO we need people that are a cross between marketing and web development/programming which normally is 2 quite different subject areas. Therefore for me unless we employed someone with a lot of experience it is more of a case of looking for people with some of the foundation skills and a lot of potential. I also personally like the idea of employing graduates as I found it hard to get a Job after graduating so want to be able to give someone else the chance. But yes ideally some experience or at least a knowledge/passion of online marketing would be advantageous.

    Do you think a uni degree would be a major plus? For example I have been doing web design and SEO for the last 7 years or so. I can show a number of successful projects I worked on as well as highly competitive keywords I rank on. I’m on my second year of Internet management and web design degree, yet I feel like quitting for a number of reasons. Would that be a bad idea in terms of employment later on?

    Listen. Do not have an opinion while you listen because frankly, your opinion doesn?t hold much water outside of Your Universe. Just listen. Listen until their brain has been twisted like a dripping towel and what they have to say is all over the floor.
