What Are You Looking For in Your Next Role?

I see SEO as an ever-developing puzzle to be solved and keep close track of Google’s algorithm updates and how they can be used to improve search engine rankings. I am also obsessed with producing high-quality content and have managed a team of international copywriters and translators both in-house and remotely.

My ideal role would combine these two sets of experience and include elements of both technical SEO and content planning. I’m happy with either a senior SEO consultancy position where I’m completing the work myself, or a managerial position where I’m co-ordinating a team.

I currently work between the UK and South France. While a remote role would be ideal from either the UK or Europe, I understand the value of face-to-face meetings and am happy to travel if required. I am also used to working on a US timescale and can do participate in online meetings during standard US office hours.


Anything Else?

With 20 years of SEO experience, I have achieved remarkable and measurable results for a wide range of clients. If you’re looking to hire a Senior SEO Consultant or SEO Manager, why not get in touch?
