Unique Opportunity - A Trainee Ammon Johns Required

I'm totally serious about this unique opportunity for a person of the right calibre to come and work with Propellernet UK, a Brighton-based Search Engine Marketing company, as a trainee Consultant.

This is not your average trainee position, and a high level of skills are already expected. We do not have the time to spend years on this training, and we are looking to take on an experienced SEO, who already understands the special aspects of Marketing as it applies to the web. Then I will personally train and coach you to take that further still.

The ideal candidate will have a background in sales or marketing, as well as a broad understanding of SEO.
(Clue: If you don't know who I am, your knowledge of SEO is not going to be broad enough.)

You must be a great communicator, as an essential part of this role is to bridge the communication gap that often exists between the Marketing and Technical Departments of Client Companies.

You need to be able to talk to Marketing Directors on their level, and then turn around and talk with Heads of IT Departments on their level without a pause.

You need to have equal passions for both Teaching and for Learning, as you will be expected to do both things each week as a matter of course.

You need high initiative, and the ability to think on your feet. You need to be proactive yet still have fast reactions too.

You must be in posession of a full, clean, UK Driving License, as considerable travel may be involved in the consulting work.


What you get in return:

A salary based upon ability and experience that will be reviewed regularly as your skills are proven. The salary will also include performance-related elements, and on-target earnings could easily surpass 70,000 pa as soon as your skills are up to the demand.

You get to work right on the cutting edge of SEO consultancy, where the work is never dull nor repetitive and we seek unique solutions for every client.

You get to be trained to be a world-class SEO and Web Marketing Consultant, able to stand alongside the very best that our industry has to offer.

I am looking to train an equal, not a junior, so you'll be learning everything that I can impart to you just as quickly as you can absorb it.


This is a completely sincere offer. Your time will not be wasted - I don't expect mine to be either.

CVs should be sent to Propellernet Ltd. - you can find the address for yourself if you're a qualified candidate.

Sincerely,

Ammon Johns (aka Black_Knight)
Marketing Director, Propellernet Ltd.

BK,

If only you were in Seattle...

I am glad to hear that you're hiring and training personally. I think our industry could use more top-quality people and I have no doubt you'll be able to train someone at a very high level.

Best of luck.

Buena Suerte Ammon!

Lucky trainee that thakes the job! Looks like 700,000 if you ask me. That's 630,000 in know-how and a good living's wage.

Ammon - You're going to be a hard act to follow, but I'll bet you're also a great teacher.

Does this mean that Ammon is going to start taking it easy? Handing down the sword? I doubt it, right?

It is far more that I need a damned good Lieutenant, someone able to act in my stead, because I can't be everywhere at once - despite increasing demand that I be.

I'm surely going to need someone to cover the Western Front while I work on the Eastern, or vice versa. I have to start training someone for that role now, while I can still make the time to provide training, coaching and mentoring to someone willing to take on this role.

I'm looking forward to the challenges, and the insights this may bring. There's nothing like training someone to make you re-evaluate your own position again, and learn even as you teach.

Good luck Ammon, I hope you find the right person.

You must be inundated with apps, what a great opportunity for someone!

Ahhh... to be a fly on the wall at those training sessions...

Thanks guys.

Lots0, while there have been some very worthy applications, I've not been innundated. Perhaps a few folks have felt shy?

AussieWebmaster, we do have schools and kids here in the UK too you know - its never too late to decide to relocate.

What a thinly disguised attempt to persuade me to have all my secrets broadcast to all.

Seriously, though, there's no way I'd let a film crew sit in on the training or consultancy process. No plans or desire to write a book either. I'm having far too much fun running the farm to go giving it away.

It's having to live in Brighton that kills it.

Now if you were living in the heart of Scotland, I might actually have looked to throw in some resources your way.

it's a very fine place to live more bars than days in the year and more internet-type people than barstools.

Oh ok- sort of see your point

Oh, Brighton would be an adventure to myself, but the missus demands we live in Scotland.
