Aira is a fast growing digital agency based in the centre of Milton Keynes, with remote positions available. We’re currently looking for a SEO Intern to join our team. You will be joining an experienced company at an exciting stage of growth and will be given the opportunity to grow in your role and get hands-on with projects.

We believe in building a great place to work and an environment where we do our best work for clients. We feel passionately about building a great atmosphere for our staff and believe in good work/life balance.

About the role

Your role will span the following areas:

Personal growth

You will be guided by our SEO Executives and SEO Consultants with a wide variety of specialisms who will help you find your feet in the industry

  • Actively seek out work which allows you to develop an all-round knowledge of digital marketing and SEO in particular
  • Dedicate part of your time to learning and developing your knowledge and skills across SEO and other digital marketing channels

Communication & team development

You will begin by shadowing others on client contact where possible to learn how to approach client calls and meetings

  • Have good communication skills, building trust with colleagues in the team
  • Be able to receive and give feedback in a constructive manner
  • Be a key player in helping build a strong team ethic

Delivery of client work

You will assist in the delivery of client work while you build up the experience and confidence to take on certain tasks yourself

  • Be consistently improving your knowledge of SEO, ensuring that any piece of work you do complete is better than the last one
  • Strive for a good standard of work on each task you work on, understanding what you are doing and why you are doing it.
  • Start taking the initiative when it comes to new tasks, and trying to figure problems out yourself before asking for help. 

About You

We’re looking for someone with the following:

  • You’ll have knowledge of SEO or Content Marketing with a keen interest to pursue a career in SEO
  • Strong communication skills both in person, over the phone and email – you will be expected to work with colleagues across different projects and teams
  • An open mind, hard-working nature and creative flair
  • A proactive attitude, bringing passion and enthusiasm to your work
  • Good organisation skills, able to balance multiple tasks at any given time
  • Strong analytical skills and attention to detail

It would be a bonus if:

  • You have work experience in SEO or Digital Marketing
  • You have any knowledge of SEO tools such as SEMrush, Ahrefs and Sitebulb (training will be provided)
  • You have self-managed projects before and have good organisation skills
  • You have any knowledge or keen interest in the digital marketing landscape, including PPC, Social Media (both paid and organic) and Digital PR

What you’ll get – our culture

Culture is very, very important to us. So much so that we have published our culture code online so that you can see exactly what it means to us. We’d highly recommend that you take a look so that you can see what we offer and how we’re different from other agencies.

We also do a lot for your development, here are just a few of them:

  • Regular personal development and concrete plans on how you can progress and grow within the company
  • An annual training and technology budget to use as you see fit
  • Unlimited, free books and audiobooks to help you learn and develop
  • Opportunities to speak at industry events and our own MKGO event
  • Mental health coaching and support thanks to our partnership with Sanctus
  • Up to two days a year to use for volunteering days with charities

As you’ll see below, we offer some great perks and benefits, but it’s our culture which we believe truly makes us stand out. Any old agency can offer great perks, but they become normal very quickly. A great culture will push you and improve you for years to come. Take out the perks, and a great culture will still remain.

We offer a bunch of great perks too

We love to look after our team and invest as much as we can in giving them everything they need to do a great job. Whilst perks aren’t everything, we do offer a lot to our team including:

  • A new shiny MacBook
  • A big second screen
  • Team lunch at Nandos on your first day (and random days after that!)
  • Unlimited (yes, unlimited) paid annual leave once you pass probation
  • Your birthday off
  • Endless supply of tea, coffee and biscuits
  • An £800 annual training and technology budget you can spend how you please, including improving your working from home setup
  • Regular personal development and concrete plans on how you can progress and grow within the company
  • Free eye care exams once a year
  • Free parking permit in central Milton Keynes
  • Private Medical Insurance
  • Generous maternity, paternity and adoption leave and pay
  • Free books related to your development
  • Opportunities to speak at industry events and our own MKGO event
  • Mental health in the workplace support thanks to our partnership with Sanctus
Salary range:  £16,000 – £18,000 dependent on experience
