¨I put myself 'open for work' on LinkedIn and Adam approached me with a fantastic opportunity that he felt would suit my skill set and experiences - he was spot on! The company he connected me with was a perfect fit and after a positive and successful interview process, I secured a new job and couldn't be happier! Adam was very helpful throughout the process and very communicative, without being pushy like some recruiters can be! I really enjoyed dealing with him and would recommend him to anyone looking for their next career move!¨

Adam at Lead Careers has helped me find a job that fits my personality with a team that is really enjoyable to work with. He listened to what I wanted and found me a job that would fit in with my lifestyle perfectly. He kept checking in to see how things were progressing throughout the process. I couldn’t have asked for anything better.

Thanks for helping me out Adam! I would thoroughly recommend him if you’re looking for a change of job or looking for your very first experience in the landscape industry.

¨Adam has been a tremendous support through my career so far and made the process of finding a new job much less daunting. Adam listens carefully to what you're looking for, establishes what your experience is and responds thoughtfully and encouragingly. With Adams help, I am now very fortunate to have found myself within a fantastic role and as part of team that I love.

A.F - Landscape Architect - East Sussex


¨Adam called me after a referral from a mutual contact and assured me that he and his team at Lead Careers would be able to find me a job in no time despite having had little luck on my own. Adam stayed true to his word and found me an interview for the company I am now working for within a couple of weeks. The leg-up that Adam gave me was invaluable. I have since been promoted within 4 months of starting and am loving my job.

This wouldnt have been the case had Adam not been so attentive and diligent about finding the right job for me. I felt from the very start that he wasn't simply trying to match me with a role for his own benefit. His dedication to giving my career a kickstart was invigorating. He delivered me the good news himself on my birthday too which was the cherry on the cake.

Top guy, great & dedicated professional. Would highly recommend¨

Adam is extremely dedicated, pro-active and also very easy to communicate with. Adam also has a large range of excellent contacts and connections within the industry.

I highly recommend working with Adam¨.

¨Adam was great at getting me back into the industry after 3 years abroad.

Speaking to Adam initially reminded me of how much I loved the profession and how much I'd accomplished in the past, as he was knowledgeable about the industry it made it easy to explain my strengths and weaknesses. I was also pleased with how responsive and understanding he was whenever I had any queries or concerns.
Would definitely recommend.¨
S.Hauser - Graduate Landscape Architect - West Midlands
¨Adam is a knowledge, enthusiastic and dynamic recruiter who specialises in Landscape Architecture.

Having contacted Adam about a specific role he was advertising, it transpired that it was unsuitable to my circumstance. However, thanks to Adam’s broad network of contacts and detailed understanding of the industry, he was able to present me with a number of other suitable roles. This resulted in me securing an ideal position that perfectly suited my individual circumstances. Without Adam’s contacts and advice I would never have connected with my new employers or considered making an application to them.

I would highly recommend Adam to anyone actively seeking a new role in Landscape Architecture. He is a really positive and energetic recruiter who has a genuine passion and commitment to find his candidates their perfect position.
L.Brown - Senior Landscape Architect - Scotland
¨Thank you to Adam at Lead Careers I now have a job and pursuing my career! He has helped me during Covid 19 to find a job/placement, a difficult time for anyone searching for work.

A friendly but professional service - can’t recommend him enough!¨

A.Jamaly - Landscape Architect - West Midlands
¨I am currently in a role that I am very much enjoying thanks to Adam. He was very generous with the time and effort he put in to helping me find work, even calling me while he was on holiday to confirm my progress within my current role. He was very friendly during the process and would always put my best interest first¨
J. Harris - Urban Designer - London
¨Adam Johnston at was extremely generous with giving up his time to understand the candidate and he was very respectable and supportive in the decision making. Adam allows the candidate to have full control on the process, taking the time to go through with the candidate on places and practices to send to. Rather than just throwing your information to all on the books.

W5 have been a great agency to work with and would strongly recommend to others to use them over other recruitment agency. If you want to have control on your career and be treated as an individual than a paycheck, Adam will be the people to do that.
