About Mulberry Cottages

Since launching in 2006, Mulberry Cottages has grown and evolved into a highly renowned holiday letting agency. Today Mulberry has a stunning collection of over 600 holiday properties across England, and is ever growing.

Mulberry properties suit everyone’s needs; large holiday homes, romantic love-nests, stylish city pads and pet friendly cottages. Our properties are in the country’s most desirable locations giving our guests a large and varied choice. We work in partnership with our owners to offer exceptionally high levels of service and a unique experience for all our guests to create an unforgettable, self-catering holiday experience.

The Role

We’re an e-commerce with a good foundation in Organic Search Traffic and now we are looking for an SEO expert to take us to the next level. You’ll manage our on-site optimisation, create optimised user-centric content, and kick-start our link acquisition activity. Our goal is to grow our organic share of voice substantially, and you’ll be a key part of that.

You will be responsible for managing all SEO activities such as content strategy, link building, and keyword strategy in order to increase rankings on all major search engines. You’ll be working as part of a team of 5, with the chance for cross-channel exposure from the get-go.

The Person

You will know your penguins from your pandas and your hummingbirds from your pigeons, and be an expert in all things Google. You’re an excellent writer, both from a technical SEO viewpoint, and at creating engaging content for browsers.

You know all the tricks to get the very best rankings from a webpage and are familiar with tool sets like SEMRush for expanding keyword strategies. You’ll be a quick learner when it comes to website admin panels, and unafraid of getting stuck in.

Perhaps you’ve grown tired of Agency Life and would like to get in-depth with a single brand client-side, or you already hold a client-side role with remit for SEO and fancy a new challenge in an environment where your impact will be felt.

You’ll be able to embrace new challenges and take on projects outside of the SEO remit as part of our tight-knit marketing team, your opinion counts and you’ll be exposed to all of areas of the business including the senior team where good ideas are always welcomed.
