A Word From our Candidates and Clients
Candidate - Senior Software Engineer, Sheffield
"3 months ago I faced redundancy after 10 years with the same company. Feeling overwhelmed by the jobs market, I decided to approach recruitment businesses. After a number of failed attempts to find a recruiter that I was comfortable working with I was approached by Amber from Affecto. Her approach was professional and I was impressed with her technical understanding. Within 3 days, I was presented with a shortlist of suitable vacancies and shortly after I attended my first interview in 10 years. Amber guided me through the process and put me at ease for what was a nerve-wracking experience. Within the space of 3 weeks, I had a job offer with a fantastic company that I cannot wait to get started. I have no hesitation in recommending Amber and all at Affecto, keep up the good work."Read More
Candidate - Python Developer, Rotherham
"Affecto are one of the few recruiters that I trust. Having worked with them on my last 2 career moves I can highly recommend them for all IT contract roles."
Candidate - Development Manager, Rotherham
"I have known Daniel at Affecto for a number of years, and have watched Affecto growth with a keen eye. Recently I found myself at a career crossroads and contacted Daniel to discuss my options. A face to face meeting was made and follow up actions agreed. Daniel guided me through the plethora of job opportunities and subsequently I have ended up in a role that really ticks all the boxes. I will always recommend Affecto to anyone within my network as a trusted recruiter."Read More
Candidate - Project Manager, Sheffield
"I had a very good experience with Sophie at Affecto recently. Moving to the Sheffield area, I had little knowledge of the market so it was great to work with someone who was local. I was impressed with Sophie's communication throughout the process and would highly recommend her."
Candidate - Php Developer, Doncaster
"Affecto came highly recommended as a local specialist for software development recruitment. I enjoyed working with Amber and would definitely contact her again when I am looking for a change in the future."
Client - Director, Technology Scale Up, West Yorkshire
Sector: Software Engineer
Solution: Retained project to build development and test team
I wanted to thank you and your team for the support you gave us recently. We appreciated your help in defining the type of person we would need, to fill the gaps in our team, and the knowledge you bought in relation to job roles and expected salaries. I don’t think any of our team were expecting to sign off the order with you and have people sitting at desks in such a short time.
All but one of the people you sent to us were recruited, we couldn’t take them all, but that was a result of how well the applicants were vetted by you.
We hope to continue to grow our team and look forward to working with you again”
Candidate - Java Developer, West Yorkshire
"I’d just like to say that’s it’s been a pleasure to work with you on this, Amber, over the last few weeks.
Even if the result had been different, this would still have been the case, but, as it is, so much the better! Please say thanks to Lizzy as well, for talking with me in the first instance.
To become a Java Developer is an ambition that I have quietly, and determinedly, aimed at achieving, over many years of studying hard with the OU while working as well, so to actualise this (and for such a rewarding company) is very satisfying. This is something that you were quick to pick up on when we first spoke"
Candidate - Solutions Architect, South Yorkshire
"The team at Affecto listened, understood and made every effort to place me into a new position that suited my abilities.
I’m very happy here now and it’s especially poignant as the role didn’t have a predefined job description. The liaison between my new employer and I, managed by Daniel, was to a very high standard and I unreservedly recommend his services."
Candidate - HR Manager - Yorkshire.
"We recently engaged Affecto to build our new QA team and have been thoroughly impressed with not only their approach but their results. Mark proposed a strategy which fitted our requirements and his team managed to implement it seamlessly.
Not only will we be using Affecto to grow our technical teams in the future, but I would highly recommend them to any company looking to do the same."
Client - MD - Yorkshire
“I approached Affecto to recruit our new Development Manager on the back of a recommendation and I was very impressed with both Daniel and Mark throughout the process.
We held an initial briefing to fully scope out the requirements and Daniel recommended a retained assignment. I felt confident not only in his exceptional market knowledge but also his experience in delivering similar projects in the past.
The project ran to timescales and I never felt I was ‘out of the loop’ at any stage. Overall, Daniel, Mark and the team delivered a polished, efficient and cost-effective service.”
