Sam shares what it’s like to work at ADLIB.

The best thing that happened to me this week:

With ADLIB as a sponsor I had the pleasure of attending ‘The Long Lunch’ for the second year running. It’s an annual meetup of South West creative business leaders. We were well fed, (very) well-watered and met some great people to work with this year. 

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

It’s quite early as I’m writing this so the day hasn’t thrown everything it has at me just yet. I did leave the house with a flat tyre though which was a good start, we’ll see what the afternoon holds!

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

Working at ADLIB is about a lot of things, but I guess culture is paramount and always has been. It’s hard to describe because everyone is so different, but looking around the room, there’s not a person here you wouldn’t want a pint with or trust with an important project. It’s been carefully crafted and everyone shares the same values.

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

There are tons of feel good moments day to day, but personally moving into the new offices is up there. When I joined we were just 8 people, in the last 5 years I’ve seen the business grow and evolve into what it is today. The new offices and new people represent a big leap forward for the business and it’s amazing to see all the hard work has paid off. 

How I explain what I do at a party:

I head up the creative and UX recruitment team at ADLIB. We help designers, artworkers, creative directors, art directors, animators, copywriters and UX specialists connect with likeminded businesses across the South West.
