Remote Head of Content

Job Description

Ellipsis stands as a top-tier SEO Content agency, driven by a relentless pursuit of excellence in the field. As our newly appointed Head of Content, you’ll spearhead our Content and Writing teams through the next phase of expansion.

Our agency is experiencing rapid growth, primarily servicing technology/SaaS clients, with diversification underway. Over the past year, we’ve doubled in size across headcount, revenue, and profitability, and we’re on track to replicate this success. Our team is comprised of exceptionally talented individuals dedicated to delivering the pinnacle of their professional capabilities while fostering a unique environment.

Our commitment to achieving supremacy in SEO Content is unwavering, and your role will be instrumental in this endeavor. The Head of Content will oversee the production, personnel, and processes involved in generating 100+ posts per month through our flagship service, Content Growth. We prioritize delivering flawless content, continually surpassing previous benchmarks, all while adhering to deadlines and budgets.

Utilizing AI, particularly our in-house creation, FALCON AI, featured in the New York Times in March 2022, supplements our content creation process. However, in a landscape dominated by generative AI, we understand the necessity of human ingenuity, hence our reliance on a team of skilled writers to refine our clients’ content.

Your leadership will be pivotal in managing the Content team, which includes overseeing Content Managers, a Graphic Designer, and a Senior Writer, alongside their respective teams. Your responsibilities span both the advancement and performance evaluation of direct and indirect reports.

As the Head of Content, you’ll take ownership of our mature content production workflow, driving enhancements across all facets. Collaboration with our Strategy team ensures continual SEO refinement, while engagement with Sales and the Managing Director facilitates strategic planning and resource allocation.

With ambitions to scale our services significantly, your role will be instrumental in driving this expansion. Success will hinge on your ability to swiftly acclimate to Content Growth within your first six months and subsequently optimize operations to achieve unparalleled excellence.

Ellipsis operates as a fully remote company, fostering a distributed workforce spanning various time zones. As such, alignment with UK/EU hours is advantageous. Our distinctive approach prioritizes crafting genuinely valuable content that addresses reader needs and showcases our clients’ offerings.

Reporting directly to the Managing Director, the Head of Content assumes a position within our Senior Leadership team, presenting an exciting opportunity to influence and shape our future trajectory.

In terms of responsibilities, the role encompasses:

  • 50% Leadership and management of the Content team and process
  • 40% Strategic planning and reporting
  • 10% Client work on your own clients

To excel in this role, you should possess:

  • Leadership prowess to nurture and advance our team, ensuring continued service excellence.
  • Proficiency in data analytics to harness insights for operational enhancements.
  • Strong content marketing acumen, complemented by SEO expertise.
  • Exemplary English editorial skills.
  • Project and production management proficiency.

Soft skills such as exceptional communication, self-awareness, organizational abilities, effective prioritization, and a self-driven work ethic are equally essential.

Bonus points for experience with remote leadership, digital marketing agency exposure, and advanced skills in data management tools.

In return, we offer:

  • A competitive, remote-based role with benefits including a pension scheme and generous holiday allowance.
  • Opportunities for professional development and a supportive, ethical work environment.
  • Regular team retreats and genuine flexibility in working arrangements.

The application process prioritizes candidates who demonstrate alignment with our values and a deep understanding of the role’s requirements. We encourage thorough research and thoughtful submissions.

Applications must be submitted via Workable by April 30, 2024, and will undergo rigorous evaluation. Candidates proceeding to subsequent stages will engage in video interviews, a paid test project, and reference checks.
