Jake was born and raised in Basingtoke and went on to attend the University of Winchester, achieving an undergraduate degree in Sports Business & Marketing, and a Masters in Digital Marketing. Jake was introduced to SEO on one of his Digital Marketing modules and found himself fully down the rabbit hole. He took to the breadth of the SEO industry, as the man himself says: “Who knew there could be so many ways to improve your website!?”.
After obtaining his Master’s degree, Jake went to work for the NHS. As you can imagine, this was a challenging time to take on such a role but Jake enjoyed the fast-paced environment and worked well under the pressure. Jake had been eyeing up a move to London and wanted to find a role and company that reflects his ambitions.
On working at StudioHawk:
“After finishing my master’s degree, I was searching for the right opportunity to showcase my talents, StudioHawk came at the perfect time. It’s one of the best decisions I’ve made, the atmosphere and company culture make every day more enjoyable. The SEO world is ever-changing and working for this agency, no day is the same! I’m excited to work for a company with such prestige and can’t wait to be an integral part of the growing London based team (We are already better than Australia).”
When Jake isn’t conducting keyword research and optimising our clients’ websites, you can find him playing football for his local team in B-Stoke and watching (read: screaming from the sofa) his beloved Chelsea FC. Jake comes from a big family, with five siblings and many many nephews so when Chelsea aren’t playing, he’s lost in the Rudge family madness!
Jake has hit the ground running here at StudioHawk and taken to the work like a duck to water and we’re thrilled to have him on board (football allegiances aside).
