Aaron shares what it's like to work at ADLIB.
When I was a kid I wanted to become…
David Beckham, nuff said.
Naturally, I had the blonde parting, I don’t think he used my mum’s hairdresser though like I did.
For me, this is “what working at ADLIB” is all about:
Since joining I continue to be impressed on a regular basis. Immediately I enjoyed the fun, friendly and flexible working culture of course but what I really love is that everyone genuinely strives to be considerate and collaborative which is not always the case in recruitment. I think this is best embodied by gaining a B Corps certification recently which I’m very proud to be a part of – doing things in the right way and giving back to the community and wider environment.
Everyone here truly understands their market and the ADLIB way of working is something that clients really engage with. I think this is why we gain a lot of recommendations and referrals from both candidates and clients.
My biggest feel-good moment since I’ve been at ADLIB:
Winning employee of the month is always a nice feeling, but if I really think about it, placing a candidate recently who was having a tough time really stands out for me. This person was relocating to the area and we presented her with three superb opportunities. After weighing up her options, she made a great decision with an award-winning company that will truly invest in her long term which is great to see.
How I explain what I do at a party:
As a recruitment consultant, I match high calibre candidates with a variety of clients which range from cool tech start-ups to household names.
My speciality is working with Project Managers, Business Analysts and Product professionals with experience around Digital, IT and Tech who seek permanent opportunities in the southwest.
Beyond recruitment at ADLIB, I care about...
The culture and environment in which we live. This is going to sound cheesy, but I feel pretty lucky to be part of a work environment such as ADLIB and live on the harbourside just minutes away so the least I can do is give back where possible. ADLIB actively encourages “doing your bit” whether that’s ongoing projects helping less fortunate or having a day out of the office to take part in a charity 5aside, I’m down for all of it.
