The Role

Are you an experienced Senior Digital Account Manager/Account Director with strong SEO knowledge? Are you a natural project manager who is confident leading a small delivery team? And finally, do you thrive in a smaller business but also have ambitions to grow within a company? If yes, we would love to speak with you.

We’re working with a long-standing web and SEO agency that has built up a fantastic reputation for first-class work, as they look to appoint an Account Director. This is a brand new role that has been created from a sustained increase in work and demand. You will be coming in and taking a lot of the client services responsibilities from the Managing Director, which will free them up to focus on driving the company forward and the wider strategy, which will mean you’ll be entrusted to oversee the SEO team of which there are 4 technical SEO practitioners. Bridging the gap between the delivery team and clients, you’ll be the face of all accounts and will uphold the highest level of standards and client comms, as well as supporting the MD with new business pitches. 

We’re not looking for a technical SEO expert here. Your organisation, communication, project management, and leadership skills will be more valuable in this company, but your knowledge of SEO best practices will of course come in very handy as you build and maintain rapport with your clients, and set and manage realistic expectations on behalf of the delivery team. You’ll also be able to get the best from the delivery team whilst also respecting the nuances and demands of their role. 

Skills and Experience

  • Demonstrable experience in a client services role where a core focus is SEO/organic search
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Strong project management ability
  • Up to date understanding of SEO best practices
  • Ability to use common SEO tools (e.g. SEMrush, Moz, Screaming frog, Ahrefs) would be an advantage
  • Management/leadership experience would be highly advantageous 


Depending on experience, the salary on offer is up to £60k. As this is a team leadership role, we require you to be in the Watford office 4 days per week.
