SEO & Social Media Executive

We Want You!

We want an experienced, enthusiastic, capable person to

  • research, plan and implement technical Search Engine Optimisation activity for clients.
  • plan and run tactical digital marketing activity for clients, including content marketing and social media marketing

Applicants should have excellent writing skills and perfect English is essential. Relevant Search Engine Optimisation expertise and extensive social media experience is required.

This role requires approx. 30 hours per week mainly on a remote working basis. However team members are required to attend remote team meetings once per week and client meetings in person, in Ireland, very occasionally. The business is based in Dun Laoghaire and there are also team meetings in person, at Dun Laoghaire (up to 4 a year) on designated days, which team members are required to attend at their own expense. For this reason, it is preferable that team members are based in Ireland, but this is not essential

Inspiration has been in business for over 23 years, and we are a small, highly skilled team with many long-standing loyal clients, which are mainly B2B manufacturers, exporters, educational organisations, and eCommerce stores.
