Vacancy: SEO Editor

About Parent Zone: 

Parent Zone is an expert consultancy in digital family life, responding to the global challenges of the digital age. We empower young people, parents and professionals to build the skill-sets to analyse and deal with challenges they face. Looking at issues such as bullying, body image, mental health and extremism, we train and provide expert information to support children, teachers and parents. We are growing rapidly and are looking for an important new team member to play a crucial part in delivering a number of busy, ambitious projects.

The role - SEO Editor:

We want an SEO editor with a real passion for digital content (and a bit of a competitive streak) to help us grab our rightful spot at the top of SERPs in our area of expertise.

We’re looking for a high-flyer - in a year’s time you’ll have rebuilt our search strategy from the ground up, boosted our traffic by a multiple, and ensured that SEO is placed at the heart of our new site build and content migration.

What we're looking for:

You’ll be a pivotal figure in our team - an evangelist for data and optimisation who gets us all thinking SEO-first. You’ll be obsessive about test-and-learn - you believe that there’s always more to understand from the data, and further tweaks to be made.

You’ll be an agile thinker who can’t leave a problem untackled. You’ll know how to present your data in ways that non-geeks can easily ‘get’.

You’ll have a firm grasp of technical SEO - you’ll help our tech team make quick wins on our existing site, and put search at the heart of the design of our new one.

You’ll set up an optimisation schedule and be organised enough to keep to it - and you’ll have the soft skills to keep us all on track as well.

You’ll be a stylish writer too, very confident about grammar and usage and able to adapt our brand voice to several quite distinct audiences.

You’ll report in to our Head of Content, who sits within the Brand team at Parent Zone.

Responsibilities: 

  • Design our keyword strategy and sell it to the team
  • Create and optimise the content which will fulfil your strategy
  • Track rankings and take action accordingly
  • Create and maintain an optimisation schedule
  • Upskill the team so we’re nearly as good as you
  • Own the SEO aspect of the design of our new site
  • Help design and improve the user journey on our platforms

Attributes we value:

Collaborative. Curious. Adaptive. Candid. Principled. Driven.

We’re based in Angel, a minute’s walk from Upper Street and twenty from Shoreditch and Kings Cross. We like fun and hard work, and we’re growing fast. If this sounds like your cup of tea and you’ve got the skills, experience and drive for the role, drop a covering letter to recruitment@parentzone.org.uk, along with your CV and an example of your online writing, by 11th February 2019.
