We sometimes have vacancies available for the following positions - speculative applications from high quality candidates are invited to submit details email@example.com.
Sales & Project Manager
We are looking for a motivated individual to help deal with our sales enquiries and project manage some of the simpler website design and build projects. This will involve working extensively with our online CRM and Project Management Tools. Essential skills are excellent English, good communication skills and a high level of organization.
We are looking for a motivated client manager to interface with clients and our project staff. The role will include project managing design projects from startup to completion and project managing and reporting on our SEO contracts.

Website Developer / Programmer
Flash / Graphic Design
Our main requirements here are excellent design skills and the ability to create Flash animations using ActionScript. Please supply examples of your work. These do not need to be complete Flash web sites - several example animations are fine. We prefer applicants who can show good design skills and fast loading Flash web pages/animations compared to complex and slow Flash web sites.
Search Engine Optimisation
We usually train from within the company for these. However there may be opportunities for applicants fluent in another spoken language. Other skills required are the ability to generate reports, to handle a lot of data, to understand HTML code and to be good at writing articles and analysing information. We do not employ people to simply acquire links or stuff keywords into web copy as this is not part of our SEO technique.
We sometimes have opportunities for people within our PPC team. You need to be very competent at handling and analyzing very large amounts of raw data. This type of position would suit someone who is very strong in mathematics and enjoys the challenge of trying new ways of extracting information from data. No current vacancies.
Freelance Copy Writing
We often have opportunities for part time freelance copy writers, particularly those able to write on technical subjects.
If you think you have the required skills, please send a CV and accompanying letter or email to the email address below. Please ensure that you state your existing level of expertise, giving reference web sites where applicable, and give some indication of the type and level of work you are looking for.
All of the above roles require people able to work independently and accurately, with good English skills. We currently undertake some work in other languages, so please state if you understand and read in other languages as we see this as an advantage.
Jobs in Kent
Our SEO/PPC office is based in Kent, and the main website development team is in Kent.
We are currently looking for web developers with excellent HTML/CSS coding ability to work initially in Kent. This would be a partially home based role and working in Canterbury two days a week for first three months. After three months, work in Canterbury can reduce to once per week.
Jobs in Cornwall
We have a design office in Cornwall. We are always looking for new designers. This would initially be a freelance role.
We are currently looking for web developers with excellent HTML/CSS (ability to hand code accessible, valid HTML/CSS) and ability to include JQuery into website designs. This would be mainly home based role, with weekly meetings in Truro and company meetings every other month in Canterbury, East Kent.
Please no enquiries from job recruitment agencies.
This means we do not consider applicants or CV's supplied by recruitment agencies.
We are not impressed by job recruitment agencies who cannot read and try phoning us.
Video design competition
We are expanding our work with video and currently unable to resource all this internally. This may be an opportunity for a talented designer who enjoys making videos to secure ongoing work. To date the examples we have seen in recent job applicant portfolios have been long and boring. This may be as a result of project work. So we have decided to supply a suggested script and outline creative ideas to any designer interested in producing a one minute Flash video. We will provide payment for any we wish to use in future, and ongoing video work for the designer with the best video. For further details contact rachel @ cornishwebservices.co.uk
