Open positions

Outreach Executives

You will handle outreach to 3rd party webmasters with a view to building an ongoing business relationship.

This mainly involves email communication and the use of our customer relationship management system. You will be a methodical person with excellent written communication skills who can self manage if need be.

You will have 2 weeks training and ongoing training thereafter. This role can be ‘work from home’ or from our Leeds offices and depending on the right applicants can be either part or full time. We are particularly interested in anyone who has excellent English and native fluency in another European language.

Content Writers

You will write content that will involve researching and writing to a given brief on behalf of our clients. The content is not typically ‘news’, but is more likely to be ‘opinion’ or ‘insight’ content.

You will have either a visible track record blogging successfully or may have done a degree in journalism or something similar. You will have a knowledge of either sports writing, travel writing, or are an excellent researcher who can be authoritative on a range of subjects.

Initially we like to give you freelance projects and once you have shown your abilities, we can increase the volume of work, with an end goal of taking you on full time.

We are particularly interested in individuals who are native European language speakers who have strong English. You can either work from our offices in Leeds, or from home.

Outreach Researcher

You will find 3rd party sites and web masters who we can work with. This role is relatively language agnostic as its data and validation of that data which is core to this role.

You will be a lateral thinking, resourceful and numerate person who can interpret multiple data points to then create short lists of webmasters to contact. This data may come from AnalyticsSEO, SEMRush, Majestic SEO, SEO Moz and of course Google.

Whilst you do not need direct experience in this area, you must demonstrate your ability to assimilate reasonably large bodies of data and make sense of it, so it can be actioned upon. Therefore advanced Excel is very important. Because this is a very specific knowledge set, we will offer thorough training on an ongoing basis.

We are particularly interested in individuals who have studied at degree level within one of the sciences who has a logical and organised thought process. Ideally you will work from our offices in Leeds either full time or over 16 hours a week.

European Language Digital PR Executive

You will represent our clients online using social media, online PR and content to build buzz and social proof around brands and products that will affect users purchase consideration process. (For more on this, see this Google Docs PDF)

You will be an outgoing resourceful communicator a natural ‘persuader’ and ‘online socialiser’, with a love of the Internet. You will probably already have a large Linkedin profile and or Facebook profile and be a contributor on various forums and other online ‘meeting places’ or you may have your own popular blog or YouTube channel.

Ideally you will work from our offices in Leeds either full time or over 16 hours a week because of the committment needed for this role.

Data analysts
This is a key role for SearchWorks. Along with our current data analyst, you will analyse SEO related data sets to guide the SEO planning process. This involves working with client requirements and setting out a ‘blueprint’ to guide clients on their expectations when looking to bring in more search traffic and to guide the in-house teams on what sort of webmaster relationships we should be looking to have. Your output then turns in to action lists that will steer the onsite and offsite planning for our clients.

You will also work on data sets procured from crawls of clients sites, where you will do gap analysis of that data showing where more traffic can be generated with a combination of onsite and off site activity. We avoid the job title of SEO analyst, because this is ultimately about being good at adding meaning and interpretation to data of almost any kind.

We are particularly interested in individuals who have studied at degree level within one of the sciences who has a logical and organised thought process. Because of the very specialised nature of the role, we care more about aptitude than direct experience. You will need to work full time and in Leeds. You will receive thorough ongoing training.
