Search Laboratory in Leeds is to provide advice and experience to students at Leeds Metropolitan University.

The specialist in multilingual search will work specifically with students on its marketing with foreign languages course to offer internships, help set final year projects, guest lecture and sit on its employer advisory board.

“I’m really excited about the opportunities us working together with Leeds Met will bring,” said Ed Langley, head of multilingual search marketing at Search Laboratory.

“Search marketing is a fairly young industry and I’m delighted that we’ve been invited to sit on the employer advisory board, so that we can work with the university to ensure graduates have all the necessary skills to enter the online marketing job market.

“A key aspect of our relationship with the university is our international focus – we both work with people from all over the world and know how different people and cultures fit together – you could say that our relationship is the perfect match.”

The agency currently employs 150 staff across 3 offices in Leeds and one in London. It plans to create 70 more jobs over the coming year.
