We are looking for an experienced Perm Recruiter to join ADLIB’s Marketing Agency Recruitment team.

With a clearly defined road map in place we’re looking to recruit an experienced perm recruitment consultant, senior or principal consultant. The key is matching our ethics, ambition and commitment to achieving the next stage of growth.

What you’ll be doing

  • We’re looking for an experienced 360 perm recruiter, senior or principal who’s in recruitment for the long game. Ambitious, committed and professional, and wanting to take advantage of our brand, knowledge, platform and industry contacts to support our growth.
  • You’ll make things happen, see everything as an opportunity, get a kick from breaking down doors, creating new relationships, whilst working within a structured and effective manner that builds a long term business.
  • You’ll enjoy working within niche verticals. In this case, we’re looking for somebody to own and grow our established Marketing Agency Client Service & Strategy desk with a focus on London and the South East region.

  • Building effective, meaningful and trusted candidate relationships that last years will be as important as developing your client base. Rest assured though, you’ll be sat on a wealth of contacts from day one.
  • You’ll quickly see we’re home to numerous go-to consultants who have spent years building their personal brand within their markets – They achieve this through building their knowledge, networking and sharing insight and expertise.
  • You’ll capitalise on ADLIB’s ever-growing presence, partnerships and relationships to support your quest to develop opportunities.
  • You’ll be supported by a team approach to winning together, in the quest to collectively strengthen our proposition and success rates. In short, you’ll have a team of experienced consultants behind you, ready to share their industry and client knowledge.
  • Work for a company with an infinite business model, as an employee-owned business we’re not in it to scale and sell, you can take the role wherever you want to with future leadership, board and director roles required, infinitely.

What experience you’ll need

  • A successful track record in perm recruitment goes without saying. We want to hear from recruiters, recruitment consultants, call them what you like, who share our behaviours and bring a genuine interest for one of the sectors we operate in.
  • You’ll be well equipped to dig deep, sourcing and building relationships with candidates and clients alike – the ability to immerse yourself in their worlds, networking and building trust will be essential to your success, alongside maintaining ADLIB’s reputation within a busy market place.
  • You’ll have impeccable communication skills, attention to detail, enjoy winning business and creating opportunities for the short and long term.
