Since 2001, we’ve worked hard to become trusted partners to all manner of businesses and agencies within the Technology, Data, Marketing and Creative sectors.

Permanent Recruitment

Our permanent recruitment team are here to respond to the long-term changes within your business, from individual requirements through to volume recruitment drives. 

For permanent hires we offer a contingency recruitment model. We'll work closely to understand your business model, the culture, the specifics of each requirement and what'll make the perfect hire. From this we'll create a recruitment plan to attract the required talent. We'll utilise our extensive network and create tailored advertising campaigns that reach the desired audience and engage active and passive candidates. From brief to start date, we're with you every step of the way. 

Contract Recruitment

Our contractor recruitment team is on hand to support you through the times where the need for a more flexible workforce is called for. From a short-term freelancer, mid-term interim solution, through to pulling together a long-term project team, we're here and ready to respond.  

Our contract consultants operate within specific vertical sectors, in turn ensuring they're constantly in touch with the market and able to source specific individuals with the skills that deliver against our clients' projects and support business success.

Project Services (On and Off-Site)

Our project service offering supports organisations in high growth or volume recruitment mode that require a single partner to plan and deliver flexible and permanent resource solutions across the entire operation. From industry consultants to define the overarching requirements to those focussed on operational support, design and UX, data and insight, technology and development through to business analysis and project delivery. 

Our project team are experts at creating effective recruitment plans that incorporate flexible resource solutions and permanent hires. We've worked with numerous businesses across telecoms, retail, financial services, online communities to agency models (amongst many others), placing entire teams and supporting internal recruitment drives.

Support and Consultancy

Our core business model is to find the right people for the right job. However, to achieve this, our success is driven from a deep understanding of what it will take to get there in the first place.

From benchmarking and salary surveys, providing market advice and guidance within candidate short sectors, creating effective engagement and onboarding models to interviewing techniques and process management we're often in from the beginning, helping them to shape, plan and guide.

We're immersed in the communities that surround us, often called on to share our knowledge, opinion and guidance. This has led to being embraced as industry partners by the likes of TechSPARK, Bristol Media, Business Marketing Club and Invest Bristol and Bath.

Diversity and Inclusivity

We believe changes need to be made to the way businesses attract, recruit and retain diverse talent. Recruiting a diverse and inclusive team is proven to bring multiple benefits, from increasing candidate attraction and brand perception, bridging hard to find skill gaps, increasing staff retention and driving better business performance. We are working closely with our industry partners such as Care Leaver Covenant, TechSPARK and Babbasa (to name a few), set to increase diversity and inclusion across the South West.

As part of this mission, we've teamed up with Women’s Tech Hub and have established the True Diversity initiative. Our training, analysis and consultancy programmes are designed to challenge and engage the staff and senior leaders that will be responsible for driving change. Our recruitment services pull from multiple resources and academies to supply work ready talent. Find out more about True Diversity here


Beyond Recruitment

To underpin who we are as ADLIB and support our overarching mission, we’ve established initiatives that go beyond the day-to-day recruitment. Initiatives that are authentic, of purpose and that make an honest and meaningful contribution to the sectors we operate within.

We’ve committed to a set of missions. As a collective, we are all about enabling growth of individuals and businesses alike, offering support to achieve ambitions. Our data team has chosen “Dive into data” as their initiative, featuring paths into and within data as a career path. Team marketing is all about championing work-life balance topics. Team creative shares best practice examples and tips to achieve digital inclusivity and our tech team showcases and features “Green Tech”. We truly believe that we are so much more than a recruitment agency.

Case studies


Employer of choice for Developers

  • SCISYS are a leading an international software and solutions company.
  • Enjoying a period of high growth SCISYS were looking to expand their technology team at pace and required an agency that would not only find the right talent, but also support the development of their employer brand. 
  • To achieve this, we introduced SCISYS to our tech community partners, helping them to raise their profile in the developer community, placing them solidly on the map as an employer of choice for developers and wider technology people. 
  • Through our consultative approach, we provided market guidance and knowledge, along with a comprehensive resourcing campaign that resulted in the successful hire of several hard to fill vacancies, from Developers to Solution Architects. 

“ADLIB have been a huge help throughout a very busy year of growth here at SCISYS. Not only have they supported with live requirements, they have also provided valuable market information throughout the year which has in turn supported with our hiring decisions and future growth plans. We look forward to a continued partnership throughout 2019.”

Immersive Labs

Expanding their team of Developers at pace

  • Immersive Labs help reduce the risk of attacks via a class leading cyber-learning environment. 
  • As a fast growing business, Immersive Labs needed to work with a recruiter that was able to get to the heart of their culture to deliver hard to find technology expertise. Step forward ADLIB's technology recruitment team. Through our in-depth knowledge of the local candidate market skilled in JavaScript libraries such as React and Ruby on Rails and our ability to find the right personality match, we quickly identified the talent required and all in line with critical business timings.
  • With more and more companies hunting out similar skill sets, a major contributor to the success of the campaign was them being a business with a culture for R&D, cutting edge technology, highly competitive salaries & benefits and the opportunity to be part of a tech-first and people focused culture.

"ADLIB's comprehensive understanding of the local tech market and the challenges faced by quickly growing start-ups has been significant in helping us grow over the last two years"
