Snippet: Job Vacancy

September 19th, 2003 by Richy B. Leave a reply »

Oh – if anybody is interested, there’s a job vacancy going around: contact me for more details if you’re interested (just leave a comment with your email address and I’ll forward further details):
“Rough job spec” follows:

Looking for a unique job position within Leicester? (UK)
Do you have experience or want experience with *any* or all of the following

* Search engine optimisation/placement – Our customers are looking to us to get their sites in the top ten in the major search engines such as Google, Altavista, Yahoo etc. Have you got any experience in this field or want to learn the secrets of the trade?

* Customer support – have you had a customer facing role where you interact with new or existing customers over the telephone and email?

* Server administration: We’ve got a number of Linux based webservers running Apache, Cpanel, Ensim, Ensim Pro and a few other software suites – have you had any experience of these from either administration or user end? How about Microsoft FrontPage, FTP or anything like that? We’re not necessarily looking for “l33t” people, but if you can tell a web site address from an email address it’s a start!

It’s a challenging role working in a small, but growing and dedicated team, with a customer base now in its thousands! Can you “work on you own” yet still interact in a team and do you like challenges without too much “set routine”?

This post is over 6 months old.

This means that, despite my best intentions, it may no longer be accurate.

This blog holds over 12 years of archived content - during that time, I may have changed my opinion of something, technology will have advanced (and old "best standards" may no longer be the case), my technology "know how" has improved etc etc - it would probably take me a considerable amount of time to update all the archival entries: and defeat the point of keeping them anyway.

Please take these posts for what they are: a brief look into my past, my history, my journey and "caveat emptor".

    Hey Richy, nice site, i know the job mentioned in this post is probably taken now, but i’m just interested to know which company was offereing it. I have just applied for a similar position.


  2. Hi Wendy,

    If you start on Monday – then welcome aboard and I’ll see you on Tuesday (I’m off on Monday: don’t want to scare the “new starter” too much 😉 ).

    We’re currently situated in the Beaumont Leys area – but I can’t imagine many jobs in the whole of Leicestershire looking for SEO’s.
