About Webmart:


Webmart is a marketing agency with a heritage in offline marketing, currently expanding into digital. Our vision is to become the leading, sustainable integrated marketing agency, creating and executing creative and commercially astute strategies, tied to SMART goals, all with sustainability at the heart of every decision.

The Role:


We’re looking for an ambitious and experienced SEO lead to join our journey into digital. This role would suit someone who is an all-rounder, with a particular focus on content, and authority building. Early on, we will look to engage specialists to support you where they may be gaps in your ability to execute, for example, with technical tactics. Our longer-term vision is to expand the team and bring these niches in-house, with you at the helm.

Our existing clients are an exciting and diverse bunch, from start-ups to household names, who all share a passion for growth and respect what it takes to get there.

The salary for the role is £40,000-£45,000, dependant on experience.

  • Working closely with our Digital Strategist, PPC lead and offline specialists to create creative and commercial strategies.
  • Executing SEO tactics, from the site architecture to a white paper creation, to scouring HARO for opportunities.
  • Keeping on top of industry trends and reporting back to the wider team on key developments and changes.
  • Consistently monitor performance, quickly actioning where there is wastage or opportunity.
  • Advertise and recruit for freelancers and contractors where required, and manage their input and output once onboarded.




  • Proven results, applicants must be able to provide examples of previous success and be prepared to discuss.
  • Agency experience
  • Knowledge on how to get the very best from all the leading industry tools.
  • Expertise in creating outstanding content.
  • Ability to find link opportunities and manage the process until the link is placed.
  • Experience with local and national SEO.
  • A clear understanding of technical fundamentals.
  • Experience across multiple CMS, and proficient in HTML and CSS.
  • A true ‘t-shaped’ marketer, with a broad knowledge of other channels and tactics.
  • A passion for data, analytics, and a firm belief that SEO is more than growing traffic. It’s about impacting the client’s bottom line.

Nice to have:

  • Technical SEO experience.
  • Tracking experience.
  • Managerial experience.
