WANTED: Freelance SEO Editors

Hi. I’m currently looking to put together a crack team of SEO specialists to help with optimising our websites at Global. These specialists could have either worked previously as part of an SEO team advising editorial teams OR are journalists with proven examples of optimisation and Google wins. The focus here is very much on content optimisation, as technical optimisation is already covered. If you’re interested in working across a variety of brands for a publisher that creates amazing content every day – please get in contact via editorial-jobs@global.com with CV and examples of your work. The duration of contract would be between 3-6 months minimum starting late July and working from our London office in Leicester Square. Thanks all.
