Salary range: £40,000 – £50,000 + DOE

Are you an SEO specialist with at least a year or more relevant experience based in the UK? We want you to come to Australia. We are even offering to sponsor & fly you over!

We are a purely SEO agency, winners of ‘Best Large Agency’ at the global search awards and ‘Best Agency Culture’ at the global agency awards.

StudioHawk is located in a prime location, just off Chapel Street in Melbourne, in a beautifully converted warehouse 10 minutes from the beach and 15 minutes from the city. We work in-office Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, with flexibility on Monday & Friday.

We’ll also help you with relocation, pairing you up with a local buddy to show you around and help you settle into your new life, as well as covering a return trip to London and back once a year.

You will be joining a team of over 40 SEO specialists in the company and leading the charge in sharing what makes SEO so great both internally and externally.

For us, having the best culture doesn’t mean having a ping-pong table (although we do have one), it means having a transparent, supportive environment that fosters evolution of talent, with clearly defined career progression all the way from running your own team up to agency leadership roles.

Working with us you will be surrounded by like-minded individuals focused on career growth and SEO awesomeness.

You don’t have to justify your existence with an in-house role, or wrangle with account managers and immense workloads at a full service agency.

You don’t have to deal with customers who were sold an SEO promise and have been given an SEO lemon.

We have SEO specialists who know what they’re doing and what they’re talking about, who speak with current and prospective clients, with that honesty and transparency of – I am the person who ‘walks the walk’.

This model of working was designed for SEO from the ground up, built for SEO specialists like you.

To find out if you’re the best fit for us, does the following describe you?

  • Creative and like to think outside of the box.
  • Always looking for personal and professional progression.
  • Someone that enjoys meeting new people and building relationships.
  • Love working with others
  • Fascinated by the world of digital marketing, especially organic search.
  • Looking to be a part of a high growth agency on the bleeding edge of innovation.
  • Tenacious and resilient; able to think on your feet when thrown in the deep end.
  • Able to write emails, correspond on phone calls, and communicate efficiently during internal & external meetings (this is important!!)
  • StudioHawk is a rapidly growing, specialised SEO agency based in Melbourne & London.

We are constantly striving to push the boundaries of organic search and create outcomes worth celebrating with the team.
