SEM Specialist

Here at 3PM, we’re in the business of people. Are you a person? Great! Then this is for you.

Work is where we spend the majority of our lives, so we’ve tried to cultivate not just a fantastic place to work, but a place that champions work-life balance. Unheard of in an agency, you say?

Well, we’re proud to be different.

Here are just some of the key benefits you’ll receive when working with us:

  • Flexible working hours. Avoid peak hour traffic and get your work life balance back
  • A ‘welcome’ $5,000 visa prepaid card on your first day (we don’t pay recruiters, we pay you)
  • A salary well above industry standards
  • 12-month gym membership (our team often does body pump classes together after work if you’re looking to tone your booty while making work friends)
  • Secure parking
  • Excellent culture where you are valued, not just another number stuck in a cubical (in fact we don’t have cubical – it’s an open floor plan!) – your opinion matters to us
  • $3,000 towards your education every year. We’re talking personal and professional development!
  • Part of the BEST team (we’re biased but we’re often not wrong)

But what do we actually do, you ask? Well, we’re a multi-disciplined agency with a reputation for delivering outstanding results for our clients. We push the Australian economy forward by helping businesses reach their goals through digital-based and cleverly crafted marketing strategies.
