Usually part of a Search, Content, Account management, Marketing or Content team, SEO jobs are high in demand and are expected to continue growing due to the heavy reliance on search engines.
Getting into an SEO career does not have any specific educational requests but will require good knowledge of the SEO industry. Technology is constantly evolving so it is important you are up to date with the latest developments. An in-depth knowledge of search engines, specifically Google, and other Google tools such as Google analytics, would also be expected.
Being able to demonstrate previous experience of optimising a company’s webpage in a previous role, or giving examples of key words that previous clients ranked well for, would also be desired and gives hiring managers the opportunity to see your work for themselves. You will need to be prepared to give examples of your work experience and previous successes in interviews.
If you have the required skills, it is unlikely SEO jobs will be difficult to find and land. It is a very highly demanded job and given how rapidly technology is evolving, and is expected to be a role that will become a necessity for companies. Salaries in SEO range from around £35,000 to £60,000 plus.
