Right now, we have 60 digital media superstars working in our offices next to Bath train station, but we’re always on the lookout for new talent.

There’s also flexibility to start & finish early or late, plus you can work from home at those times when it just makes sense.

During your time at SearchStar, you’ll get top-notch training and the chance to build your technical knowledge with some of the sharpest minds in the industry.It’s not surprising that we have a great record for keeping both clients and staff. Our gold star reviews could fill volumes, and our turnover rate is well below the average for the digital marketing industry. Well, we can’t be above average at everything…
