Establishing a creative department with the right mindset

  • Create Health is specialist healthcare marketing agency with a mission and fascination for new healthcare technologies, treatments and methods of care. 
  • In the search for a new Creative Director we were approached to match them with an individual that could take their creative to the next level, be part of the board and support the growth of the agency over the coming years.
  • We ran an end-to-end recruitment campaign in search for this pivotal hire, including advertising and an extensive head hunt within our diverse network.
  • Since 2014, we’ve helped the Creative Director establish a permanent creative team with the right mindset – consisting of an Art Director, Designers, a Copywriter and a freelance pool of trusted creatives that scale up the studio at short notice.

“Since joining Create Health, I’ve had a clear vision of what I want to build. ADLIB have invested the time to truly understand this, meaning the permanent and freelance candidates they send through are always spot on. This not only makes the process easier and more enjoyable, it saves a lot of time.”

Candidate Experience

Rita Cervetto, Service Designer

  • Rita is a Service Designer, with a background of UX and visual design.While working full time in a design studio in Manchester (Lovedby), she had recently moved to Bristol and approached us to get an understanding of the local market, especially opportunities in product and UX and to line up projects in the South West.
  • We took the time to understand what really makes Rita tick, appreciating that contract was her focus at the time but also understanding that the right permanent job could be a great move for her.
  • We matched her with exactly that as one of our clients were looking for a UX Lead to work on a new digital service. An opportunity that really got her excited.
  • She started in this Lead role, as Senior UX Designer within Ovo Energy, looking after the experience of thousands of customers from day one.

"From the moment I got in touch with ADLIB I felt I was in safe hands. Sam’s understanding of the industry was instrumental in me making the decision to give up consulting and take this epic opportunity at Ovo. He helped me throughout the interview process, kept me informed and offered great advice at key times. I’d recommend them to any professional looking for knowledgeable support finding great career opportunities.”
