Lauren is part of ADLIB's User Experience & Design recruitment team, connecting talented designers, conceptual creatives, artwork specialists and copy writers with client side businesses and agencies across the South of England.
Lauren shares what it's like to work at ADLIB:
When I was a kid I wanted to become...
I was a disco dancer growing up so was obsessed with glitter / anything that sparkled and wanted to get in to performing arts or acting. Playing Theseus in my primary school’s rendition of Midsummer Night’s Dream is technically as far as I got though…never mind!
For me, this is what working at ADLIB is all about:
Working alongside incredibly knowledgeable humans who genuinely love what they do and care beyond their day-to-day roles. To be part of a business who are well respected within the industries they work in, who are also incredibly supportive, transparent employers is a great feeling!
My biggest feel-good moment since I've been at ADLIB: There have been many it's hard to choose, but a recent win has to be placing a UX Designer after both them and their partner were made redundant during the pandemic. The candidate was more junior than the role but had a great attitude towards UX principles and design thinking, on top of a solid foundation in multi-disciplinary design. Naturally I was really routing for the candidate, and I was so happy for them when they were offered the job! It's great working with clients who see real potential in people!
How I explain what I do at a party:
I recruit within Design and UX for the only recruitment company I'd choose to work for; they're the only B Corp recruitment business of their kind!
Beyond recruitment at ADLIB, I care about...
Outside of work I do care a lot about communities and charities, so I volunteer whenever I can. I also love eating out and travelling to new places. If I can combine a trip to the sea and find a pasty on route, happy days!
