Wed, 29th Nov 2023

JobAdder, a recruitment software platform, announced today the appointment of Adam Tehilwec as its new Head of Growth and Marketing. His appointment closely follows that of Ginger Kidd, who took on the role of Chief Growth Officer earlier this year. This move comes amidst a broader trend among Australian tech companies to emphasize growth initiatives, even within a challenging economic landscape.

Adam Tehilwec will lead efforts to enhance JobAdder's market presence and customer experience. He brings with him a wealth of experience, having worked in various roles in both Australian and UK markets. His impressive career includes collaborations with industry giants such as Mercedes Benz, Vodafone, and BHP. In his new role, Tehilwec will manage global functions encompassing website management, paid activations, media strategy, content creation, advanced SEO, branding and design initiatives, along with effective lead generation.

He reports to Ginger Kidd, who assumes a new strategic direction for JobAdder. The company is moving from a volume-centric growth approach to one focused on quality. Tehilwec will oversee the day-to-day operations of the growth team as Kidd hones in on future growth opportunities for the company. Both executives previously worked together at Xplor Technologies, underscoring their robust professional rapport.

Currently, JobAdder serves over 27,000 recruiters, positioning itself as a significant player in the applicant tracking system (ATS) market. Building upon this strong foundation, JobAdder aims to focus growth efforts on delivering enhanced customer value through simplicity across all interactions with the platform.

Speaking of Tehilwec's appointment, Ginger Kidd stated, "Growth at JobAdder is not just about numbers; it's about elevating the quality of our services and customer experiences. Adam's appointment as Head of Growth, Marketing brings a fresh perspective and proven expertise in scaling to help us achieve this goal. Together, we are committed to driving value through simplicity and ensuring that recruiters have the support they need at every step of the way."

On his recent appointment, Adam Tehilwec commented, "I’m thrilled to be a part of such a dynamic organisation at this important time. JobAdder's commitment to delivering unmatched value is well-known throughout the recruitment industry, and it's a commitment I am excited to build upon in my new role. Our mission is to simplify the recruitment process, and this will be at the heart of our digital transformation. Building the right digital capabilities is crucial to creating long-lasting value for our customers."

He added, "I look forward to working closely with Ginger again to amplify JobAdder's presence. We want to be known for recruitment tech and easy customer experiences. This new chapter promises to be an exciting journey of innovation and growth."
