At Search Seven, we believe roles should be built on your needs as much as ours. Whether that’s the flexible hours to fit your lifestyle, or perks and benefits that mean something to you; we want to know what gets you up in the morning.

For us, it’s our people. We’re incredibly lucky to boast a strong team of experts from a variety of backgrounds who create strategies that help our clients stand out from the crowd. We may be ‘techie’ but we have a sense of humour too and we’re confident that you will enjoy working with us! Our charity work is also very close to our hearts. Making a difference is a key driving force behind what we do, which is why we pledge up to 7% of our profits to charity.

We are a growing business and as part of our growth we need to hire more excellent people in our paid team. We know what we need (we listed it below) but we genuinely want to hear from you – what do you want? What do you think would help us make the best paid team in the UK!? So please look at what we need then tell us what we can do for you, what would convince you to explore this opportunity with us?

Who are we?

Search Seven are a remote-first Digital Marketing agency that was founded back in 2011 in Brighton & Hove, specialising in Paid Media and SEO. We still call Brighton our home, but since 2021 we switched to a remote-first way of working and we now have amazing team members based in Sussex, Kent, London & further afield. We love to all come together and enjoy social events at least once every month. This includes taking on the Crystal Maze as a team in London, trying to get some holes-in-one playing Mini Golf on the Brighton beachfront, or simply enjoying some excellent food and drink together at beautiful venues in Kent. Our culture is strong & being remote workers, it’s more important than ever to ensure we all get out and have fun to reward ourselves for all the hard work!

Why ‘Search Seven’?

Search is obviously part of what we do, but why ‘Seven’? Well, we pledge to give back up to 7% of our profits to charity each and every year via our S7 fundraising events & direct donations. This was a pledge our founder; Gavin Willis, promised to make upon starting up the company so to become part of everything Search Seven stood for – to be different from other agencies & to give back. We’ve always put purpose before profit in everything we do, ever since.
