Rich shares what it's like to work at ADLIB:

The best thing that happened to me this week:

I’ve been in recruitment long enough to know things do not happen over night. This week saw the results of those weeks of hard work start to fruit. In recruitment it’s always fantastic, when all that hard work and ‘foundation building’ starts to pay off. It really helped that the ADLIB team have been very supportive, offering solutions and alternative ideas, rather than applying pressure.

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

I would have brought an umbrella! As the minute I stepped out for lunch, a pigeon marked me as a bullseye! 

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

Culture, true culture. Not free lunches or a beers fridge, those are perks. But ADLIB has a genuine atmosphere of team work and collaboration. Everyone is dialled into creating success as a whole. Each day I feel my actions are valued and impact the business. When I succeed, those successes feel earned and shared throughout ADLIB. 

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

Honestly, the end of my first week. Having worked for a number of recruitment firms over my career, I knew without hesitation, I had made the right decision! 

How I explain what I do at a party:

Utilising the best talent network available, I enable businesses to scale quickly and efficiently. Or if in a tech circle, I would describe myself as an API!
