SEO Manager Job Description


We look to provide as many resources as possible, and one of those areas is job descriptions which can be tricky to put together.

The best way is to put your main points across and not get trapped believing you’re writing a great advert. Here are some tips that will help you write an SEO Managers job description.

Job profile of a SEO Manager

Quite simply, an SEO Manager will look to implement and oversee the SEO strategy and occasionally the business’s day-to-day running. In the interest of complication, if you’re an Agency, the SEO Manager may well be doing this for the Agency clients.

Naturally, these can be two different roles, so it’s always best to clarify if you’re an Agency or simply a business needing an SEO Manager for your website and assets only.
