£28,000 - £32,000

Xbite started 16 years ago and now with a team of over 200 people across head office in Barlborough and distribution centre in Markham Vale. 2021 brings some new challenges and projects for us and what started small, has now turned into a multi channelled international e-comms business. In order for us to continue to grow, we need a broader range of skill and expertise within PPC and SEO which is why we are investing in recruiting an experienced PPC Manager as well as the broader Sales and Marketing team over the next few months.

Your chance to join an exciting, growing and entrepreneurial company. This role provides you an opportunity to own and manage PPC for Xbite.

Annual spend on advertising is limitless if you can demonstrate the right ROI.  You will have the creative freedom to trial new techniques, features and software to level up our PPC efforts. 

Google, Amazon, Ebay, Facebook, Instagram - we're advertising on all the biggest platforms in the world and we're really good at it but we want you to come and take it to the next level. If you are ambitious, have high energy, are a creative problem solver with a naturally curious disposition and an affinity for data and optimisation then we cannot wait to let you loose on our PPC accounts. 

Not forgetting SEO - 

PPC is a critical factor of SEO and we have over 50 websites across multiple geographical regions. This role will also be the go to focal point for SEO related challenges, issues and queries and the rest of the team will support in the rollout of activity and optimisation. An advanced level of understanding of SEO is required, both front and technical back end.

This role will take ultimate responsibility for all the SEO spend and the perfect candidate will coach and develop the junior members of the advertising team with the future prospect of stepping up into managing the team completely.

We look forward to receiving your application.
