Creating teams. Shaping futures.

Our knowledge is your knowledge – ADLIB Surveys and Tools

Here at ADLIB we’re regularly called on to provide our clients and candidates with market knowledge that has been drawn from more than 16 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.
