About Nick Dean


Nick Dean

- Managing Director Phone: 0117 926 9530

Nick loves recruitment. Handy, as has worked in the sector for over 20 years (sad but true). Nick also loves the marketing and technology sectors. Again handy, as he worked in a top digital marketing agency for nearly 5 years. Today he brings this love together and is tasked with ensuring that the ADLIB team are the most talented, successful and ethical recruiters you’ll ever know.

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


When I was a kid I wanted to become…

A recruitment consultant :D

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

Our people, we’re a collective with a shared purpose and vision. We’re constantly pushing ourselves, internally we strive to be the very best we can, externally we’re there within our communities, supporting industry, social enterprises and championing D&I. We’re also very good at recruitment…

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

Being awarded B Corp in September 2019, we’re the only recruiter of our kind in the UK and testament to several years of hard work and staying strong.

How I explain what I do at a party:

Secret agent - Saves talking about recruitment, way too much of that during the week to take to a party and more importantly, why would anyone want to talk recruitment at a party?

Beyond recruitment at ADLIB, I care about...

Man City (new and old), Zeus (dog), People (you know who you are).
