Are you tired of being told you don’t have the right experience for a job, but aren’t being given a chance to gain the experience needed? Well, the Salience Technical SEO Executive role is for you.

This entry-level opportunity is perfect for apprentices, graduates, career changers, fresh starters, and those looking to accelerate their knowledge and skills in the technical SEO industry.

We are looking for an individual with the right attitude, rather than the right experience.

About Salience

We are an agile search marketing agency that was founded way back in 2009. Our agile approach means we work in weekly sprints that give us the freedom and responsibility to plan our own week and pursue the work we are most passionate about. Located in Chester city centre, our office is over two floors and filled with a ping pong table, friendly dogs, beer taps, and much more!

We work hybrid with two days in the office and the rest of the week working from home:


SEO sprint teams head into the office for a day of collaboration to discuss client goals, strategies, campaign vision, client requests, and performance. We decide as a group which tasks are most important for achieving client goals and create that week’s sprint. This then sets us up for the rest of the week where we complete the tasks outlined on a Monday.


An in-office day for the whole Technical SEO team to discuss tasks, ideas, best practice changes, industry news, and more.
