Digital Marketing Internship
We're a dynamic and forward-thinking digital agency in Southampton, made up of a close-knit team of designers, digital marketers, account managers and developers. All of whom know and love their craft.
What we are looking for
We're looking to expand our digital marketing team with an intern. If you’re a proactive, enthusiastic and highly-motivated person who loves to work in a challenging and interesting environment – please get in touch with us.
We’re a small but international team here at Merchant, loving what we do and working in a vibrant, friendly atmosphere. You will be an open-minded, positive thinker with excellent attention to detail and someone who can both work with a group as well as take a brief and work independently.
What we're offering
You'll be supporting our digital marketing / SEO team working alongside our talented client services, development and creative teams.
You will actively contribute to Merchant’s success and will therefore be entrusted with essential tasks that directly influence our outputs - this means that you will receive a competitive salary.
- Ability to conduct detailed research and analysis for projects
- Fluency in oral and written English
- Ability to manage multiple projects while maintaining attention to detail
- Time management skills
- Team working and positive attitude
- Proactive and enthusiastic personality
What we're ideally looking for ...
- Knowledge of on page, off site and technical optimisation
- Analysing backlinks, competitor analysis and keyword research
- Google Analytics, Google Adwords and Search Console knowledge
- Basic understanding of Google algorithms and penalties
- Experience working with CMS like WordPress or Umbraco
What's in it for you
You'll get to work in a small, agile agency with a great team of people who will support you at every step of the way, ensuring that you will have plenty of opportunity to learn more about digital marketing and broaden your SEO knowledge. You’ll also be working with a wide range of global clients across a spectrum of industries.
Furthermore, you will be working in our open-plan studio next to the water in Southampton (we're talking the actual river outside our door, boats breezing past our window) plus free parking on-site.
What previous interns say about working with us ...
"What an internship! The Merchant family gave me a warm welcome when I started back in August 2018 and since day one has been really supportive.
My experience at Merchant has been amazing, helping me develop a deep understanding of SEO and the work undertaken by different team members within a digital marketing agency. The team continuously made the effort to teach me new techniques, which after only a short period of time, enabled me to take on tasks essential to the outcome of our clients’ projects.
Treated as a full-time employee like everyone else, I grew with each task I was set and was given the opportunity to work independently. At Merchant, your opinion counts, you are valued for the work you deliver, and you’re included in all company activities such as sailing trips and personal training sessions.
Thank you, Team Merchant, for an unforgettable start to my career in digital marketing!"
