FireCask is looking for a Senior Technical SEO Manager with at least 2 years agency or in-house experience. This role will primarily involve looking after the on-site optimisation of all FireCask’s clients and internally owned websites, as well as other digital assets across our client base.

You will have very strong knowledge and experience as you will be both consulting and implementing best practice technical SEO techniques across a range of different client verticals and platforms. On the top level, this will include technical SEO recommendations on site structure, keyword mapping, usability and CRO.

You’ll have worked extensively and have expert knowledge of tools such as:

  • Screaming Frog
  • Google Analytics
  • Google Search Console
  • Majestic
  • VWO
  • Sitebulb


You’ll have a keen eye and be completely comfortable using tools plus manual checks to provide sound technical SEO recommendations and advice. Whilst not a day-to-day part of the technical SEO role, we would be looking for someone who can compliment the work of FireCask’s digital campaign team, who are responsible for off-page SEO, including link acquisition, digital PR and content promotion.

We are looking for a highly organised, methodical and motivated individual, with great communication skills, who is comfortable meeting with clients to discuss complex issues and ideas.

You will be the person who consults with the rest of the FireCask team on any technical issues or other optimisation techniques. We will expect you to have at least 2 years, with real-life, practical experience and be willing to continually expand your knowledge.
