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


When I was a kid I wanted to become:

I had lots of ideas when I was younger; a teacher, zoo keeper, architect… I studied music technology at college and university though so the natural choice was recruitment ;)

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

Working at ADLIB is about a lot of things, culture is crucial to me but also being a part of something that's growing, changing and progressing at pace. Even with growth we've remained agile and flexible, able to adapt to our markets and the industries around us. We've got new teams exploring new territories, sectors and skill sets which means the proposition is always developing. There's never a dull day and always something to look forward to.

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

Officially becoming part of the senior management team felt good. When I joined we were just 7 people, we’re now over 40 and the proposition has come a long way. It’s great to be able to work with such a tight leadership team and exciting to look ahead. We’re the strongest we’ve been and it feels like we’ve learnt a lot over the last few years. 

How I explain what I do at a party:

I head up the creative, UX & UI recruitment team at ADLIB. We help creatives of all kinds connect with agencies, SME's and corporate brands in the South West. Our UX & UI specialists help businesses of all kinds understand their users and how to make better products in the South West and London.

Beyond recruitment at ADLIB, I care about...

Each of our teams have made a commitment to support a cause they care about, ours is ‘design for good’. We’ve partnered with some great people so far that have produced some insightful content for us. We’re also working towards a ‘design for good’ event so watch this space!
