When I was a kid I wanted to become…

Liverpool’s next star striker.

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

Always looking forward and not being satisfied with average. We’re a collaborative team, immersed within the sectors we recruit for and passionate about influencing positive change.

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

Becoming the first recruiter of our kind to achieve B Corp status. It’s taken a lot of hard work as it should and is something we’re all really proud of.

How I explain what I do at a party:

If I’m still able to communicate coherently then I’d say, I help lead our client side recruitment team which involves helping recruit the best Marketing, Creative, Technology and  Data talent for exciting start-ups, forward-thinking SMEs and leading UK brands.

Beyond recruitment at ADLIB, I care about…

Creating an inclusive environment within ADLIB that people are proud to be a part of.

Steve heads up ADLIB’s recruitment team. From many years recruitment experience he’s gained an intrinsic talent for bringing online, multi-channel and omni-channel businesses together with the brightest eCommerce and senior marketing people across the UK.
