Candidates

We want to get to know you from Adam

... And we’re not just saying that.

We Are Adam focus on building long-standing relationships, not our database. Your career is a huge part of your life. It’s important you find a role that brings fulfilment and happiness. Sunday evening shouldn’t fill you with dread.

We understand the importance of finding the right role for you, and the impact it can have on your life. We’ll never put you forward for a role that you aren’t interested in or doesn’t suit you. You won't jump through hoops to hit our pointless KPI's either. Looking for a new role shouldn’t be a full time job.

We'll be forthcoming, honest and as timely as possible when giving you feedback. Don't expect us to tell you what you want to hear to make our lives easier. You'll get real feedback, warts and all. We're always on hand to share advice on refining your CV or prepping for an interview. Why sit and stew on a query when you can ask an expert?

Candidate Testimonials

Leon was so supportive. Before I went to meet ?WhatIf! he called me and walked me through the whole process, and he messaged me to say, ‘Good luck’. Afterwards he talked me through the next steps. I really needed that as I haven’t been through an interview process in ten years. I’ve been doing the interviews rather than being the one interviewed! It had been such a long time, but Leon was so encouraging. He was always there.  Even when he went on holiday, he would chat to me to see how I was getting on which was brilliant. I massively appreciated it. He’s such a nice guy as well.

Senior HR Business Partner

We Are Adam's service was always efficient, friendly and professional and they took a real interest in all aspects of the recruitment process which I think can be quite rare in the world of recruitment. They not only understood the type of role we were after but also helped matched candidates that would fit within the fast -paced culture of our business. We Are Adam will be my first point of contact for any future roles I need filling.

It's been refreshing, supportive and responsive working with you. Thank you so much for putting me forward and the support you provided. Landing this great role has been the icing on the cake.​

​I cannot thank you enough. Albeit that this is only my 3rd week, and it's still very early days – I am so happy. I actually don't feel that I have sufficient words to express how happy I am. Lorna – this is a dream come true for me. I have spent the past two weeks pinching myself as I can't believe how lucky I am.

Senior Business Development Executive

My first impression of Léon is that he's an absolutely brilliant guy, he has great energy with such a positive attitude in everything he does. Professionally Léon has been someone that has helped me a great deal over the last year specifically with regards to senior executive roles in the digital industry, his network of senior HR leads for global brands has enabled him to access fantastic opportunities for top digital, HR, Marketing and PR talent.
