A Word From our Candidates and Clients
Candidate - Software Engineer, South Yorkshire
"I spotted an Affecto advertisement that summarised a role that I felt fairly qualified for. It was professionally presented and provided enough detail to make a guided decision on whether it was worth enquiring further about (experience required, office location and any nice-to-have experience that would support an application).
After submitting my CV, Daniel was very prompt in replying. He was friendly and supportive of my application and was prompt in following up any questions or sending across any further information that was helpful for the application. His key insight into the company in question was very valuable - building my confidence that the company and proposed role was a good match for me.
Throughout the application process, Daniel continued to provide quick, valuable feedback and acted as an excellent point of contact with the company."
Candidate - Senior Tester, South Yorkshire
"Affecto contacted me about a available role which matches my skill set. After speaking to Daniel we decided that I should look at a slightly different role to provide a greater level of progression.
I start the new role in a couple of weeks and Daniel has supported me every step of the way, keeping me informed regularly and providing support for interviews.
If required in the future I would definitely work with Affecto again and would be happy to recommend them to friends and colleagues as well."
Client - MD, South Yorkshire
Solution: Senior Project Manager
"Affecto’s approach to recruitment centre’s on investing the right amount of time to completely understand the requirements of the business before using their extensive network to source the right candidates.
Sophie, in particular, took the time to really understand the role we were looking to fill and focused on the right candidate's and not just anyone that vaguely fitted the bill. The quality of candidates presented was excellent, with a fast turnaround, saving time and energy all round for everyone.
We will continue to use Sophie and the wider Affecto team for other opportunities in the future. Great Service!"
Candidate - Project Manager, Doncaster
"Having dealt with numerous agencies in the past, I have never seen such an efficient and professional response as I have from Kate at Affecto. Fast and friendly service, with excellent results. Thank you again for your help."
Client - COO, Ask4 Broadband, Sheffield
Solution: Retained Search Assignment
We recently retained Affecto Search to appoint our new Head of Technology.
Throughout the process, from the briefing and specification of requirements to shortlist refinement and interview management, Daniel was insightful, engaged and achieved every milestone agreed. Of the candidates presented, all were relevant and interesting, ensuring that each interview stage felt productive.
Ultimately, the successful candidate, like the majority of the shortlist, was only in the process because of Daniel's extensive network of contacts.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Daniel or Affecto Search to businesses looking to identify and engage with senior technology leaders.
Candidate - Android Developer, Sheffield
"After more than 10 years in my previous role, I applied for a number of jobs through different agencies. Mark and the team at Affecto really stood out in terms of prompt contact and really listening to what I wanted from a role.
Mark was able to secure an initial telephone interview within a week which led to a further interview and finally a job offer. Throughout the process, Affecto's communication with me was excellent and Mark was very responsive to passing on my queries to the employer.
I was anxious about moving after such a long time in one role, but Mark and the team at Affecto have made the transition straightforward."
Candidate - DevOps Engineer, Sheffield
"Within a week of talking to Dominic at Affecto, I had 2 interviews lined up at fantastic sounding companies in Sheffield.
Dominic was very helpful throughout the process, was understanding of my current situation, living a long way from Sheffield and arranged for everything to run as smoothly as possible.
Overall Dominic and the team were a pleasure to deal with and made the transition between jobs very easy."
Candidate - Product Solutions Consultant, Sheffield
"After working for the same company for 11 years, applying for a new job with a new company was daunting.
Sophie made the whole process easy and was quick to keep me informed throughout. Her guidance and support were invaluable in helping me secure a fantastic new opportunity."
Candidate - Front End Developer
Sector: Software Engineer
"Three years into my first job I knew it was time to move on. I was worried - I had little experience with the job search process and it was a little overwhelming. Being swarmed with messages on LinkedIn didn't help.
Fortunately for me, a friend of mine referred Affecto to me and, from the get go, I was taken care of.
Affecto worked with me for over a month and were nothing but knowledgeable, helpful, and supportive the entire time.
I landed a job I'm very happy with and I wouldn't be here without their help."
