Are you at an early stage of your career in digital, with a good grounding in the basics of SEO? We’re looking for an ambitious, enthusiastic and hardworking SEO Executive to join our fast-growing team from our Nottingham office.

This is an excellent opportunity to carve out a name for yourself at an award-winning digital marketing agency while working with like-minded and experienced search engine specialists. The SEO Executive role sits within the SEO department and supports strategists and specialists across a portfolio of our client accounts, helping to deliver SEO strategy to an exceptionally high standard.

We take professional development very seriously. Not only will you have the opportunity to work alongside our friendly team of award-winning search marketers, you'll also be provided with a tailored SEO training programme to ensure your applied skills are as best they can be, whether that's in technical SEO, content creation or link acquisition.

  • Google Analytics certified, or an applied understanding of the software

Not ticking all the boxes? Don't worry, here at Impression we promote a culture of learning and development so we'll help you out!

Equity, diversity and inclusion are integral to Impression’s recruitment process and we are committed to ensuring your experience with us is equal, fair and non-discriminatory.

The FlexScore® is the result of a rigorous 2-step verification of a company’s flexibility

First we assess the flexibility options Impression provides and then we anonymously survey a statistically significant proportion of their employees to make sure Impression is as flexible as they say they are. Our assessment is based on the six key elements of flexibility: location, hours, autonomy, benefits, role modelling and work-life balance.

We ask the hard questions so you don’t have to.

What employees are saying

"I joined this summer after graduating from university, and everyone is very positive about working here. Everyone has been friendly and helpful since I started. The company really cares about how their people feel and give new starters the flexibility to learn at their own pace. I really believe that Impression is a great company trying to work as ethically as possible. Furthermore, since I began working here, the Head of People has already hosted a number of events to get our input on benefits, and has altered working hours. It's been very positive!"
