Life at Adam – Rochelle

Rv Headshot

My life at Adam….Well where do I even begin!?

I started my recruitment career in IT and Engineering – as many graduates seem to do these days – and soon realised that I didn’t want to be one of those recruiters who just sits behind a screen and bashes out 120 dials a day in order to hit their KPI’s. I knew I wanted to be in a job where I can meet my candidates and clients and really get to know them on both a professional and personal level.

That’s why I joined Adam.

My day no longer revolves around blindly sending out as many CVs as I can in the hope that one of them sticks. It’s so much more personal now; I get out and about with my network and it’s great! The rapport that I build with my candidates/clients is pretty amazing and I love how crazy/cool people are in the creative industry … it makes every day interesting!

This is honestly the first job I have had where I don’t wake up on Monday morning thinking “Oh god, another 5 days of work”. I actually ENJOY going into the office. Can you believe that!?

Another great thing about working at Adam is that I’ve finally plucked up the courage to join the gym. Anyone who knows me will know that this is totally out of character! I go every lunch time and work my butt off, so not only am I ‘transforming’ other peoples’ lives, I’m transforming my own too, ha!

Seriously though, the culture is incomparable to any other company I have ever worked for. I know it sounds so cliché but it really is like working as part of a family. I always feel like I can turn to the guys up North for absolutely anything even though I’m based in the London office. I’m a firm believer that it’s the people who make the company and its’ culture. It’s a true testament to everyone here, especially Leon & Richard, that I felt so welcomed and settled in so quickly. I’m nearly 9 months into my career at Adam London and I would not change a thing.

I guess things do run slightly differently in the London office as there is a much smaller team (currently just two of us!) but I am loving the journey of creating our own “London Culture” and embedding that in every potential employee that joins the family.

I honestly can’t even say anything negative about Adam other than the fact that I am turning into a bit of a LAD working in the office with Leon Milns. I’m also starting to pick up Northern lingo and have acquired a whole new vocab since joining ……
