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

The best thing that happened to me this week:

This week we’ve been approached to lead a huge creative recruitment project for a truly aspirational brand. It’s difficult to say more than that right now, but having the opportunity to get involved with big projects like this make it exciting to come into work each week.

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

Today I grabbed a takeaway coffee on my way into work, forgetting we have a shiny new coffee machine. There’s something about grinding your own coffee beans that makes it taste so much better.

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 I’d have to say one of the biggest for me was actually being given the opportunity to head up the creative recruitment desk here. I was able to focus on something that really interested me and 3 years on, it’s amazing to see how it’s come on.

How I explain what I do at a party:

I work on the creative recruitment team; I connect talented Art Directors, Designers, Copywriters, Creative Directors and Artworkers with agencies and in-house teams across the South West. I also regularly and reliably get beaten at FIFA and table tennis; the two national sports of ADLIB.
