Who are

As our name suggests, we’re all about online performance. If you’re creating content for the web, you need to be considering SEO. We are pioneering a data-driven approach to content creation and strategy in healthcare. With countless pharmaceutical and healthcare websites out there with little to no organic traffic, the untapped potential for search-optimised content in these industries is huge!


As the only pure-play SEO and performance agency in healthcare and pharma, we help our clients break through the noise of misinformation and poor quality content. Our passion lies in healthcare because it’s where we believe we can do the most good. Healthcare professionals, patients, and the public use search engines on a daily basis for health-related queries. This means the quality of content on a search engine results page (SERP) can directly impact the health and wellbeing of people around the world. By creating accurate, helpful content that ranks highly on SERPs, we make sure that anyone who has a health-related search query gets the information they need.


We also work in the consumer space to keep up with the latest SEO trends, and have a dedicated Animal health division to make sure veterinarians can find the answers they need also.

What does the graduate scheme involve?

Over 6 months you’ll have formal training sessions, opportunities to shadow various members of the Content, SEO and Accounts teams, and support on multiple active client projects to get a feel for how we do things. We advise pharmaceutical companies on how to structure their websites, as well as review and create content to ensure their site can be easily found through a search engine.


Our unique, insights-driven approach to content creation means you’ll not only be researching and writing medical copy, but also diving into the data to understand what our audiences are searching for, and what content is currently ranking well. This includes:

Medical research and copywriting

Web content SEO strategy

Optimising content to improve user experience

At the end of the 6 months you and your manager will work together to decide which area of the business you will specialise in, based on your interests and abilities.

Why should you be interested?

You might think that the only options for using your life sciences degree are academic research, working in a lab, or medical writing. We’re offering you something different. Our graduate scheme lets you get creative, analytical and explore different disciplines across our teams. After exposure to Content, SEO and Accounts, you can decide what area best suits your interests, and tailor your progression to do the work that excites you the most.


You might discover you love researching new therapy areas and treatments and decide to focus on writing medical content. You may prefer focusing on higher-level content strategy or diving into the data to solve an elusive problem for a client’s site. Alternatively, you might decide that owning client relationships and ensuring our projects run smoothly appeals to you the most. There’s only one way to find out!


During your extensive onboarding period, we’ll teach you everything you’ll need to know about SEO to get stuck right in. Skills can be taught but the right mindset is essential. If you are passionate about having a real impact on patients’ lives, then we’d love to chat.


Are you up for the challenge?

Who can apply?

A solid background in life sciences is essential to understanding our clients’ content and strategy, so we ask all applicants to meet the following requirements:


  • Educated to at least Bachelor’s degree level in life sciences, medicine, pharmacy or a related discipline (Masters’ is a bonus).
  • Able to distil complex medical concepts (e.g. disease features, drug efficacy and safety data) into simple content that’s clear, concise, and compelling.
  • Demonstrated research and referencing skills.
  • Existing knowledge of SEO and/or writing copy for the web is a bonus, but certainly not required – our training will get you up to speed in no time!

Our flexible model of hybrid working enables us to get valuable face-to-face time with the team while allowing us to balance our work commitments with our personal lives.

We also know the office isn’t for everyone. We’re all about you finding the best way to do your best work. This means we’re always open to discussing more flexible options. We have remote employees from across the UK and beyond.

Curiosity – always asking questions and challenging the way we do things. As a small but growing business, we’re always looking for ways to improve our ways of working to benefit everyone.

Fantastic communicator – in a fast-paced agency environment, communication on project progress, issues, and priorities is key. We also want you to feel comfortable speaking your mind, and know that the best meetings start with a nice chat!

Expert plate spinner – you’ll be working across a variety of accounts, balancing different clients, therapy areas, and types of project. Our team loves the variety, but it means you’ll need to be able to keep your head straight and shift priorities at a moment’s notice.
