SEO MAnager < £45,000

‘We rise by lifting others up.’

These were the words that Paul Warren the owner and Founder of Making Websites Better said to me when I asked him what it meant to work at MWB as we call it. What a start to a new role briefing.

In a nutshell this page is about a fantastic role, working in a fantastic Web Design and Development agency, an agency which is in the top 5% of WordPress agencies in the UK. Yes, I am absolutely thrilled Digital 51 are once again partnered with Making Websites Better as they look to add the newest member to their team.

MWB is just over 3 years old as a specialist Web Design and Build Agency. The agency specialises in high end, creative, and proven website solutions. Now the business is pivoting into a new direction as they want to add a SEO specialist to their business.

Why are MWB looking to make this hire now? Because of the growth of their client base, and the demand from that client base. The workload and opportunity is there, with freelancers delviering and supporting on all things SEO until now. Now though it’s time for an expert, it’s time for a leader, it’s time for someone who lives and breathes SEO who wants to make something their own.

The opportunity at Making Websites Better is a simple one. Join a fantastic people driven agency with a proven track record, and lead their charge into all this Search Engine Optimisation.

Where does this opportunity lead to? It leads to a Head Of role if that s the right direction for you. It leads to feeling successful in your role. It leads to being part of something, part of an agency which succeeds by collaborating as a team.
