HUB is an integrated marketing agency based in Leeds. We are a collection of creative and technically skilled individuals, who have all been carefully selected to deliver the talent and enthusiasm needed to successfully deliver quality services for our clients. We’ve been working hard for over 15 years to achieve our vision.

HUB opened its doors in January 2007 as a startup, driven by three passionate marketeers with a determination to succeed. Since then, the agency has recruited diverse and skilled colleagues who fit with our ethos. These people have helped us grow to become a thriving business.

The company is built on a simple foundation of driving success for our clients, which ultimately means success for HUB. The core of our philosophy is that hard work and great ideas deliver both our vision and that of our clients, creating rewarding careers for talented individuals along the way.

Due to recent client wins we are looking for an experienced SEO Manager/Strategist to expand our offering. As a key member of the performance team, you will work closely with our Performance Director to create and execute KPI driven SEO strategies, develop robust processes and build a market leading SEO function within HUB.

Your main duties will include:
