SearchStar is a lively, energising place to work, full of people who really know their onions, and have great enthusiasm for what they do. We’re a close-knit team, but we’re growing steadily, and looking for talented, like-minded souls to join us.

We're currently looking for a Part-Time Marketing Manager and PPC Account Managers. Send your CV over, we'd love to hear from you...

SearchStar have been around since 2005, but we’re still growing strong. Right now, we have 45 digital media superstars working in our offices in central Bath, but we’re always on the lookout for new talent.

We’re lucky enough to do work that is stimulating and rewarding, but we’re also firm believers in a healthy work-life balance. Part of this means sticking to a 9.00am–5.30pm working day, so your evenings are always your own – because we know there’s more to life than work.

That’s why we run a calendar of social events throughout the year, from punting to petanque to meals in top local eateries. We also lay on a weekly team lunch, and artisan pastries every Friday morning – and our Christmas weekends away have become the stuff of legend.

Of course, it’s not all brioche and boules. We love seeing people reach their full career potential at SearchStar, so we make a point of promoting from within the team, rather than hiring from outside.

We’ll also give you every opportunity to expand your role and push yourself in new directions as the company grows. 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
