About SearchStar

SearchStar has been around since 2005 and we’re still growing. 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. We’ve recently been acquired by Welocalize, which means we’re part of an even bigger group of people who understand the importance of digital content and data.

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 (we know there’s more to life than work). There’s also flexibility to start and finish early or late, plus you can work from home at those times when it just makes sense.

We run a calendar of social events throughout the year, from escape rooms to the opera and lay on a weekly team lunch and artisan pastries every Friday morning. Our Christmas parties have become the stuff of legend. 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.
