In your opinion, what is “what working at ADLIB” all about?

Working at ADLIB has been a breath of fresh air compared to other recruitment agencies that I and people I know have worked at. ADLIB is a collection of very honest, reliable and down-to-earth human beings that are passionate about recruitment and are purpose-driven. This is not your standard recruitment business and our work and the businesses that we choose to work with truly reflects that.

What are you grateful for?

I am grateful for sunshine, bees, and flowers!

What is something unexpected about you that people might be surprised to learn?

I am neurodivergent!

What my candidates say

  • Working with Amber at ADLIB recruitment was a joy and the process was very easy, professional, and efficient. Amber worked with me closely to land the role and I am grateful for all her help.

    Jamie Brown

    Lead PHP Developer

  • ADLIB is unlike any agency I have ever used. So friendly and helpful during my job search and even after they had found me a job. An absolute delight, I wouldn't use any other recruitment company. Special thanks to Amber for making the experience such a pleasant one!

    Dan Wrigley

    PHP Developer

  • Fantastic company! I can't speak highly enough of the recruiter who successfully placed me, Amber. She was extremely friendly and professional and had great communication throughout the process.

    Will Samuel

    Full Stack Developer

  • As someone fairly unfamiliar with this style of recruitment, I found Amber delightful to work with. Her manner is very friendly, and she stayed fully engaged from the initial approach through to post-recruitment. If I’m looking for work again in the future, Amber will be my first port of call.

    John Clark

    Senior Web Developer

  • I can't rate Amber highly enough. Very much a different experience to any involvement I've had with recruitment in the past. Amber is very personable and friendly, whilst still remaining professional, meticulous and efficient. I was kept up-to-date through the whole process and even since I've been in the new role, Amber has checked in to see how I was getting on. I'd 100% recommend Amber to anyone looking for employment.
