  • Strong verbal and written communication skills to communicate and present ideas and information
  • Confidence with Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint as well as Google Mail, Google Sheets and Google Docs
  • A can do attitude to see tasks through to the end and be persistent to ensure positive results

Job location

Whilst we have an office in Southbourne, Bournemouth, we are accepting remote worker applications.

This is with the proviso that you are willing to travel to the Bournemouth office at least once a month to collaborate in person with the SEO team and wider agency where necessary. You may also be required to attend agency events in person through the year.

So, who is Adido?

We could wax lyrical about our full service digital offering, our mix of exciting clients (local, national, start-ups and household names) or our collection of awards (we’ve got a cabinet full of them), but what makes us different is our team; we’re digital experts who pride ourselves on delivering real business results for our clients through innovation, research and experience. Our curious and analytical approach delivers high-performing websites and effective digital marketing campaigns time after time.

We have spent two decades working with digital technology & marketing channels, and our talented team of around 20 people has helped us to get us to where we are now. But we need your help to enable us to do bigger and better things for our clients and for ourselves.

So, if you like the thought of working in a buzzing, expanding agency, previously named ‘Agency of the Year’ and ‘Best Place to Work’ (we told you we had awards) then we’d love you to join us on our adventure.

What can we offer you?

We feel the most important thing is a great working environment where everything we do is underpinned by our key values and attitudes - to be Commercial, to be Curious, to be Candid, and to Care.

Alongside our values, we offer some pretty cool benefits:

  • Company pension scheme
  • Private health insurance or gym membership
  • Flexi-time
  • Work from home and (Southbourne) office based daily routines
  • Laptop and monitor for WFH use
  • Fresh fruit in the office
  • Relaxed dress code (except for client appointments)
  • Regular team building activities (anything from a day at the beach, to an afternoon at the waterpark, to overnight trips in the UK and abroad)
  • At least 22 days' holiday + bank holidays, and an additional day for every year of service
  • Personal development training budget
