Adam Smith, Business Performance

Adam Smith

As part of the senior team, my key responsibilities are focussed on the current and future performance of the business overall and how this is delivered through our team of excellent consultants, sound planning and ongoing review.

At Beyond The Book, we believe strongly in ‘smart’ recruitment and how we can break the mould of a traditionally high-volume and, typically, low-quality industry. As a management team we work hard to create the environment, processes, support and time for our consultants to work ‘smart’ and fully commit to helping our clients find fantastic, talented people, who have not only the right skills and competencies, but are a great fit culturally, for their organisation.

I do love a spreadsheet, but don’t hold it against me! I’m also involved in team recruitment and development - so not all numbers......!

“BTB are the best recruitment consultancy I have ever encountered as a candidate in the marketing industry.”

“Kaisa and the team at Beyond the Book helped me secure my first freelance job on-site at a Milton Keynes based design agency which has since turned into regular remote work. Kaisa has been great. She always keeps in regular contact and I've always found her to be friendly and professional. I would definitely recommend Beyond the Book to any designer looking to take the plunge and begin a freelance career.”

“Tracey recently helped me secure a new job within the industry. She was committed to understanding the skills and experience I had, and her friendly, knowledgeable, supportive guidance played a pivotal role in my success. A lovely team that I would highly recommend.”

“I have had nothing but positive experiences of working with BTB, both as a candidate and as a recruiter. I worked with Tracey on both occasions, and she was an absolute joy: professional, helpful, supportive and really understood what I needed from the recruitment process. She placed me in my current role 15 months ago, and I am loving it. And our latest recruit has exceeded all our expectations. I can’t recommend BTB enough!”

“As a recruitment consultant, Emma never fails you. Very aware of her client’s needs and which person is best for that client to hire. As a freelancer I have gained great personal and professional confidence from the belief shown to me by Emma which has helped me so much in other areas of my life. If any company owner wants to be sure of a positive, rewarding and successful appointment then give Emma a call or email.”
