A Word From our Candidates and Clients
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.”
Client - HR Manager, Yorkshire
“Until we worked with Affecto, we never really recognised the importance of using a specialist agency. However, Sophie managed to exceed our expectations by successfully sourcing 4 Developers with what we’ve always found to be a tricky skillset to find - Python.
Whilst the process was not completed overnight (we never expected it to be), our expectations were managed and enjoyed the regular progress reports we received.
We’ve been impressed by not only Sophie but everyone we came into contact with at Affecto and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anybody looking to hire Developers, no matter what the discipline.”
Client - Development Manager - Yorkshire
“After being introduced to Amber by Daniel, I was very impressed by how quickly she understood my requirements for a new Senior Developer. After meeting her, I felt really confident she would be able to find the right blend of skills I needed.
Within a week, Amber was able to present a shortlist of candidates (all of whom I interviewed) and I was able to successfully make an appointment the following week.
I would be happy to recommend Amber (and Affecto in general) to anyone looking for talent in IT.”
Client - Internal Recruiter - South Yorkshire
“I approached Affecto on recommendation from a former colleague after I struggled to successfully find a Network Engineer, where I was referred to Dominic, a Network, Infrastructure and Support specialist.
Dominic quickly understood the needs of our Ops Team and we were happy to grant Affecto exclusivity on this opportunity as a result of the impression Dominic made. Within 2 weeks, we were presented with a well thought out shortlist and successfully hired the following week.
Affecto will always be my first port of call whenever I struggle to recruit technical roles in the future.”
Candidate - Risk & Compliance Manager, Huddersfield
“The Consultants at Affecto have a fresh outlook on the job market, staying up to date with market trends and changes. It’s obvious that they do their homework and establish themselves in the community as the go-to agency for tech recruitment.”
Candidate - Php Developer, Sheffield
"I found a Php Developer role with the help of Affecto. I was becoming quite disillusioned with my job search, and thought I would have to move out of Sheffield to get the job that I wanted. Affecto introduced me to loads of different companies that were looking for Developers, as well as informing me about local meetups. I met a few of the team at the meetups and found them to be extremely personable and well connected in the local tech scene.”Read More
Candidate - Ruby on Rails Developer, Sheffield
“I relocated to Sheffield from Reading after finding Web Developer roles (particularly working with Ruby on Rails) really hard to come by. I was contacted by a Consultant at Affecto who gave me advice not only on the job market but also what it’s like living in Sheffield. After hearing how much cheaper the rent is up North, I ended up making the move! I have been introduced to a number of businesses and like-minded people whilst being here, all off the back of my relationship with Affecto. They have been constantly on hand throughout my transition and have gone above and beyond in terms of recruiting.”Read More
Client - HR Manager, South Yorkshire
"We have been working with Affecto for almost 12 months now, and have built up a close working relationship over this fairly short period of time. We always receive high quality candidate CV’s, which are all relevant to the vacancies we have.
They have taken the time to fully understand our ways of working and ensure they only put forward candidates which ‘fit’ with our business.
As well as having a good understanding of our people and culture, their technical expertise helps to find people with the correct skill set to fit our business requirements.
We look forward to continuing to build our relationship with Affecto, as we consider them to be an integral part of our recruitment process."
