ADLIB, who recently gained B-Corp Accreditation, are supported T4GSW as they feel the network has the potential to develop meaningful collaboration, partnerships and technology solutions to respond with technology-enabled solutions to support social challenges across the region.
Annie Legge, Co-Organiser of Tech4Good South West, said “Support to our network from a recruiter fits perfectly into one of the challenges we seek to solve, connecting tech talent to the charity sector across our local communities. We have such great tech talent across the region, and incredible third sector organisations sustaining the most marginalised in our communities. Tech4Good networks can truly become catalysts for accelerating the use of digital at the same time as driving social purpose across our tech sector.”
Nick Dean, MD at ADLIB, said: “We’re delighted to partner with Annie and the team at Tech4Good. As a B Corp Certified business, we’re committed to balancing profit with purpose. The ADLIB team hold a wealth of knowledge and experience in sourcing and retaining talent across the tech, data, marketing and UX markets. We’re also committed to driving and championing diversity and inclusion, coupled with a real-world solution that is addressing at root level, via our sister company TechTalent Academy. Sponsoring Tech4Good and being part of the network will allow us to connect with members, adding value and supporting our internal commitments and desires to support external communities as a B Corp business.”
