Candidate Experience

Alistair Rogers, Data Scientist

  • Alistair is an experienced Data Scientist with working with clients across government, healthcare and banking sectors.
  • While successfully working in London as a Data Scientist for one of the Big Four professional service companies, he was planning to move to Bristol and approached us to get an understanding of the local market, especially opportunities and skills in demand within Data in the South West well ahead of the move.
  • We advised on opportunities and businesses in and around Bristol as well as in-demand skill sets so he could gather relevant exposure in advance.
  • Once ready to make the move, we were able to match Alistair perfectly with an open opportunity. Equipping him with tips and advice, we guided him through the interview process and negotiated the salary that was in line with his expectations. Alistair started as a Data Scientist with OnCorps, a start-up FinTech firm. 

"Alex and ADLIB were fantastic to work with and absolutely made the daunting experience of finding a job in a new city a lot easier! They take the time to understand the fields that they are recruiting for and even go to developer meetups to learn more about the areas that they recruit in. Would definitely recommend working with Alex and ADLIB."

SunLife

Two niche hires in record time

  • SunLife are a financial services company and one of the largest life insurance companies in the world.
  • As part of a small restructure, they were looking to expand their Performance Optimisation team, by adding two analysts.
  • Low quality of applications and scarcity of top analytics talent can make finding specialists extremely difficult.
  • By tapping into existing candidate pools and relationships, we were able to suggest a range of suitable candidates with a wide range of experience, resulting in SunLife making two great Performance Analyst hires.

“ADLIB helped Sunlife hire two great analysts in record time , who are already embedded in to the team and delivering great pieces of work.”
