A Word From our Candidates and Clients

Client - Founder, Fast growth tech start-up

"Affecto are the only external recruiter that I have had any success with over the past years of building a tech startup in Sheffield.

Once we started working with the team, we just stopped talking to any other recruiters. In an industry with more than its fair share of short-term, high-pressure salespeople, Affecto stand out because their team invests the time in your business to learn exactly what kind of culture you are building and what kind of people you are looking for.

Highly recommended."

Candidate - Senior Software Engineer

"Working with Affecto, I have been able to move my career into different technologies, something that I had been keen to do for a number of years.

They understood my aims and was able to arrange opportunities at a variety of relevant local businesses. He listened to any feedback I gave and was soon able to put me in touch with an excellent company that I am happy to now be working for. As a bonus, I am working with Affecto again because they are helping my new employer to recruit into new positions!

I have been very impressed with everyone that I have come into contact with at Affecto."

Candidate - Infrastructure Engineer

"After a successful spree in academia I was looking to venture back into industry into a role that was a good fit for my technical interests + future growth.

Affecto were the first port of call after hearing of them through a local meet-up event and visiting their website.
The C.V was uploaded and within hours I got a call from Dan who expertly sought out and put me forward for roles of interest that he thought would be a neat fit.
The first company I interviewed for offered me a wonderful opportunity which I didn't hesitate to accept.

Thanks Dan + Affecto!"

Candidate - Software Engineer, Sheffield

"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.

Fortunately for me, a friend of mine referred Affecto to me and, from the get go, I was taken care of.

Daniel worked with me for over a month and was nothing but knowledgable, helpful, and supportive the entire time.

I landed a job I'm very happy with and I wouldn't be here without his help."

Candidate - Engineering Manager, Sheffield

"All the folk at Affecto were really helpful in finding me the perfect job. They go above and beyond what is usually expected from a recruiter and really do act with everyone's best interests in focus.

They were really careful to interview me and check I was a good fit for the role before putting me forward, and were very proactive in following up at every stage of the interview process. I highly recommend Affecto as an agency"

Candidate - CTO, Scale-Up Software House, Sheffield

As an experienced leader within technology, truly exciting opportunities are quite hard to come by, especially in South Yorkshire!. However, Daniel approached me about one such opportunity with an organisation looking to scale and right from the original call, I was very intrigued.

The business obviously held Daniel in very esteem and trusted his judgment in what was the most important hiring decision to date. The role evolved several times during the process (as these types of opportunities tend to do) but Daniel was always objective, informative and a guiding hand throughout.

Unusually, I found each stage of the process productive and informative and Daniel a pleasure to work with.

I would recommend anyone of a senior level within technology have Daniel in their contact book as Affecto Search certainly have their finger on the pulse when it comes to the region's marketplace.

Candidate - Front End Developer

Sector: Software Engineer

Solution: Sheffield

"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."

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 - 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 - DevOps Engineer, South Yorkshire

I have been looking for the right role for some time, sadly most recruiters are all the same - just want to get your CV over and forget about you.

Amber is very different, she made me feel very welcome, and supported me through the whole interview process, and although I was not successful, she gave clear and honest advice. I can not recommend her enough!

I have been approached by a vast number of recruiters over a period of months (I usually get ~4 calls per day), and including Amber there is only a small decreasing number of recruiters that will now deal with.

Thank you for all your help, and keep up the great work!
