Mike offers several years IT recruitment experience, impeccable ethics and a proven background in delivering talented techies from junior/graduate to director level to digital agencies, software houses, SMEs and start ups across the south west and beyond. All of which make him the perfect person for driving the continued success and growth of ADLIB's digital technology team.


Mike shares what it's like to work at ADLIB.

The best thing that happened to me this week:
Getting on a contract role and filling it within one call. We've worked hard over the last 5 years to build a fantastic network so when it all comes together quickly it feels great.

If I could change one thing that happened in my day today: 

Getting soaked on the way in. Also, I wish I wasn't trying to be healthy, St Nick's market is on our doorstep and there are too many amazing lunch options on offer.

For me, this is what working at ADLIB is all about: 

Helping clients to grow their teams with the best talent we can find without having to wear a suit in an office without egos. Everyone genuinely wants to help each other except for when there's a ping pong or fifa battle going on.

My biggest feel good moment since I've been at ADLIB: 

There's been a few over the last 5 years so it's hard to pick one. Hitting targets each year and making good commission is great but I always get a buzz from meeting clients who say that we're the only agency they'd ever want to work with.  Repeat business and delivering each time is everything.

How I explain what I do at a party:

Finding jobs for techie folk within digital agencies and SMEs across the South West. But, hang on, if we're at a party - let's not talk shop, I'll go grab a beer.
