Creating teams. Shaping futures.

Yes! It’s Christmas time again!

As they say, Christmas is a time for giving. Those that know ADLIB well are likely to be aware that we don’t do the Christmas stuff like delivering an ADLIB branded bottle of wine, ADLIB mouse mat, ADLIB desk calendar (you get the gist) to our best spending clients. Sure we’d like to, but we’ll simply tell them how much we love them, words mean more than possessions as the boss says.

So this year, to spread the Christmas cheer, we are being a bit more random than we usually are (stay with us here)…

Christmas 2016 is all about “ADLIB Random Acts Of Kindness”.



We don’t know who, where or when (that’s the point) however during December, there will be ADLIB Acts of Kindness #ADLIBKindness in and around Bristol.

Follow us on Instagram @adlibagram for full stories…

We have a new partner: Creative Bath!

We are pretty proud to say that we’ve added Creative Bath to our lovely roster of industry partners! We are now one of their official Anchor Partners, naturally we’re in good company alongside some of our favourite businesses and organisations.

Creative Bath exists for everybody that works within the creative industries, a community of creative, tech and cultural businesses, organisations and individuals in and around the Bath area.
Part of their mission (as with ADLIB’s own mission) is to bring together inspiring, independent creative people and businesses of Bath and its surrounding area. As well as:

  • Provide a voice for Bath’s creative sectors and identify their needs.
  • Highlight the economic and cultural importance of Bath’s creative industries.
  • Promote Bath as a great place for creativity to thrive.
  • Provide support through opportunities for training, business support and access to funding.
  • Provide a platform to strengthen communication and develop partnerships for Bath’s creatives, a forum on the website and at Creative Bath events.

And of course, alongside all our partners, we continue to promote the sector and area as a whole – every day.
We are looking forward to meeting those of you that are already members at one of the upcoming events! Definitely excited.

Our knowledge is your knowledge – ADLIB Surveys

Here at ADLIB we’re regularly called on to provide our clients and candidates with market knowledge that has been drawn from close to 15 years’ experience of working amongst the digital, creative, marketing and digital sectors. And whilst we like to think we’ve a pretty good handle on things out there we also know how important to stay current and get close to a world full of market adaptations and influences. So we’ve committed to creating a series of sector specific salary, engagement and benefit surveys that we will be publishing on a regular basis. Beyond this we’ll also be looking at key industry influences and why people are flocking to the West, amongst much more.

We’ve collated the data for our surveys via direct respondents of online surveys, combined with ADLIB’s extensive internal data and knowledge gained from the creative, technology, marketing and digital sectors.

Whether you are an employer, an employee, a business considering opening operations in the South West or you are simply reading with interest, we hope you enjoy.

The documents are free for all to access and enjoy, please click on a name to download your copy now.
