Head of SEO

Head of SEO

We're on the lookout for a Head of SEO eager to join our growing team of digital marketing professionals. The best one will do. Someone who can level up our process / dept and be the change. If you want to evolve what we have done well - great. If you want to tear it down and completely remodel - go for it. You will get our support.

Dark Horse believe in challenging the status quo and they are looking for someone with a hungry mindset, keen to deliver. We have one aim… build and scale the best SEO dept in the country. This is a chance to do just that. Not bad for your CV.


Roles and responsibilities

The successful candidate will lead our rapidly expanding SEO Team, reporting directly to the MD. They will be responsible for the success of a portfolio of accounts, and the day-to-day communication with their clients around campaigns. We need someone who appreciates the values of our company and is ultimately driven to make an impact in the digital world by putting clients and the team first. This role is not your average SEO Lead role. This is about being a voice and vital central cog in the business. We want someone to build the department in their own likeness - processes, results, team development. The works. Someone who relishes and wins in a results-business.


Are you our next Head of SEO?

Are you right for us?

Key player stuff.  It's all about Organic search performance through earning links and coverage for our clients. We don't do SEO; we do Commercial SEO. If it doesn't affect the bottom line, then did the tree fall over? DA is great but clients don't hire us to increase that. They want £££.


  • Planning, production and promotion of digital PR campaigns.
  • Monitoring & responding to journalist enquiries.
  • Reclaiming unlinked brand mentions.
  • Blogger / journalist gifting.

Ultimately, you will employ any legit tactics and strategies that work in securing relevant, authoritative links (anything from top-tier publications to niche sites).


The “Perks” of Being a Dark Horse

Look, we won't lie, we don't do pizza Fridays. What we do actually offer are things that matter a bit more, the things that make the hype of work-life balance more doable. 

You've got a hybrid role – meaning we spend part of the week in the office and part of it at home, enjoying the joys of working within the comforts of your own four walls. Flexitime is a thing. There are loads of holidays to enjoy, PLUS Bank Holidays (people screw you over by not making that clear). We love our little planet, so every month we plant trees in The Dark Forest on behalf of every team member.

If you think you've got what it takes to make it in Dark Horse email your CV to hello@darkhorse.co or call us for a chat 0161 883 1094.
