What’s in it for me?
This is not your average advertising / media company or role. Our client is an independent media and marketing house with a simple philosophy – advertising investment shouldn’t be an exercise in hope and belief – it must be an accountable investment. Their ‘direct buying model' creates and implements media solutions that deliver their clients’ business objectives. Direct means total transparency for their clients - no commissions, no junkets on their time and budget, and total remuneration based on their business performance.

They are proud to challenge outmoded models of media buying, to get the best commercial outcomes for their clients. They are always working on the clients’ side of the table and they make it their business to understand their clients' business and do what’s right for them. They also believe that smarter thinking provides smarter choices; they develop a strong, coherent, and compelling strategy and
analyse media and response data to identify where advertising is working – and where it isn’t.

What would I be doing?
In this role you will be responsible for implementing, optimizing and reporting on digital activities for your clients by:

  • Developing and managing the execution of ongoing SEO campaigns including authority/link building and keyword optimisation and testing.
  • Undertaking extensive keyword discovery and expansion, competitive research and on-page optimisation(s).
  • Recommending appropriate strategies to effectively influence search engine results, maximising exposure within a client's target market.
  • Defining, tracking and reporting on key performance metrics.
  • Compiling monthly reports including the identification and communication of key insights.
  • Preparing comprehensive technical SEO audits and reports, as required.
  • Interpreting and predicting digital trends and communicating these to wider inhouse team.
  • Liaising with clients, creative agencies, web developers, and colleagues.
  • Identifying opportunities to improve the company’s processes, solutions and overall business.
What do I need?
You must be a strong and confident communicator with a pro-active approach to getting things done. As well as being both detail and deadline focussed you need to be highly analytical and able to identify new opportunities utilising both data and insights. You will hold a relevant tertiary degree and have at least 2-3 experience in a similar SEO role.

Specifically you need to be:
  • Conversant in the world of digital media and up to date with new SEO developments, initiatives and innovations.
  • Experienced with Google products and common SEO tools.
  • Strong written and verbal communication and presentation skills with the confidence to be client facing.
  • Self-motivated with independence to carry out responsibilities with minimal direction.
This role can be based in Christchurch or Auckland and some national travel will be involved.

Only applicants with the unrestricted right to work in NZ will be considered for this role.
