2018: a year of growth, 2019: a year of even more growth

It’s the time of year we like to say “thank you”. Our growth has only been possible because of you, our client’s and friends’ and candidates’ and partner’s growth journeys – all of you who work relentlessly to do fantastic things. Thank you for being a part of our journey this year.

With ambitious plans in place we headed into 2018, embracing possibly the biggest phase of growth in ADLIB history. We were ready and in a position to scale things up. This included settling into our new office space and increasing our team’s headcount by 30%.

Throughout the year we’ve introduced numerous new team members, recruiters that are breaking new ground across our core sectors, increased our operations and contractor support and added headcount to our marketing team to spread the word far and wide. With a wealth of opportunity out there we’ll be going into 2019 actively seeking several new recruiter roles working across our creative, data, marketing and technology recruitment teams.

Finding the right kind of people, the rare kind of recruitment beasts we are, is no easy task but we like a challenge. We’re ready for it. Bring it on.

“We head into 2019 as we went into 2018, with big plans. We’ve created an infrastructure that will allow us to add to our headcount at pace and in response to the ever developing technology and data sectors, whilst continuing to grow out our creative and marketing offering. We’ve sights on some major decisions that will impact us in 2020, therefore it’s imperative we continue attracting talented and ambitious recruiters that share the ADLIB behaviours. In our eyes there’s never been a better time to get on board and enjoy the good times”
