Working for an agency is quite different from working in-house for a brand. Agency life is varied and fast-paced, meaning that there are hardly ever any dull moments.

But don’t just take our word for it! We asked a few members of the team: “What do you enjoy most about working at a digital agency?” and we got some amazing answers.

Achieving Great Results

At Boyd Digital, we take the results and quality of our work very seriously – from the expert digital marketing advice we give to our clients to right through to building high-performant campaigns and strategies.

We caught up with our SEO Manager, Jamie, whose favourite part about working at Boyd Digital is: “The opportunity to shape client campaigns based on a mix of data-driven insights and my own knowledge and experience. It is fulfilling to see a client perform well because of the roadmap you set out for them.”

He also added: “What makes Boyd Digital different from other agencies I’ve been involved with is the relationship built with clients over time. The work we do isn’t a simple transaction between two companies, it feels more like a partnership where we build on each other’s expertise and contributions, and I think this is the best way to get real long-term results.”

We couldn’t agree more – the way we treat our clients is what sets us apart, and why we have a long list of loyal digital partners who rely on us to make their businesses even more successful year on year.

Work for a leading SEO agency

The work you get to do at Boyd Digital is rewarding, varied, and challenging, with lots of room to grow professionally. This is why we LOVE working here.

Can you see yourself fitting into the team?

Whether your skills lie in copywriting, marketing, web development or project management, we’re always on the look-out for fresh talent and creative individuals to join our growing team. Check out our careers page for the latest vacancies.

No Two Days Are The Same

Working on various projects at once means you’re constantly switching mind-set – one minute you might have to put yourself in the shoes of a house-buyer to understand what type of website experience they want, the next you might be researching the health & beauty sector for a blog post.
In other words, you’re constantly being challenged and stimulated to think outside of the box, making it hard to ever get bored with your work.
Kristin, our Digital Marketing Executive, agrees: “With multiple clients in an agency, you don’t get bored of aiming at the same topics, analysing the same keywords, working with the same audiences. Instead, you are able to get an insight into different industries, how they operate, what challenges they face, and how you can help them succeed in reaching their objectives”.

Professional Development Opportunities

Working for a digital agency is perhaps the best way to keep your skills sharp and ensure that you are always at the top of your digital marketing game. The variety of challenging work allows you to hone your existing skills while gaining new, practical knowledge on the job.

Gary, our Content Manager, explained this perfectly: “Boyd Digital has always afforded me the chance to branch out and try new things. I started as an intern who didn’t know diddly-squat about digital. Over the years, I’ve built skills in a way other individuals at my level in other digital companies haven’t.”

Moreover, working with other professional and bouncing ideas off each other helps to expand your skills organically, as Lorna – our SEO and link building specialist knows: “The best thing about agency life, for me, is working with the rest of the team. They all have such a variety of skills and are always willing to help.”

Unlimited Creativity

Agency life is perfectly suited to the creative souls out there.

At Boyd Digital, we’re constantly generating fresh and exciting ideas to make sure projects are performing at the best level they can.

This is why we offer our employees more job autonomy and creative freedom than other organisations. We allow our team to use their creative talents freely without being micromanaged, which helps team members to remain motivated and flourish in their career.

Our Digital Marketing Strategist, Cheryl, agrees: “I love the level of creative freedom I have at my job whilst being supported by a hugely talented team that I learn something new from every day! I love the constant challenge the role brings – no two days are ever the same and I wouldn’t have it any other way!.”
