Reporting to: Director of SEO (don’t worry – he’s not scary)

Location: We are based in the centre of Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire. 10 seconds walk from the town hall, 20 seconds from coffee shops and around a minute to the river!

Salary: Dependent on experience.

Benefits: BUPA private healthcare.

Start Date: Immediate.

Contract: Permanent, full time contract subject to 3 month probationary period.

Deadline for applications: Open

Education: Degree level qualification in a relevant subject is preferred.

We have a strong team spirit with open (often off topic) discussions creating a fun, energised and lively atmosphere in the office. We have a constantly replenishing supply of tea/coffee, fruit & ice-cream. We have a big TV and comfy sofas in the office, so that we can all relax once in a while.

We enjoy breakfast when the farmers’ market is in town and either fish & chips or pizza once a month, as well as lunches to pubs on the river. We use “team building” as an excuse to use shotguns or go-karts, oh and we also offer health insurance!

“PR and SEO have become more and more integrated over the years. Here at Screaming Frog, the small but perfectly-formed PR team work alongside the SEO team generating successful PR pieces. Combining traditional PR knowledge with existing SEO skills, it is a great place to nurture your online PR skills.
