A Word From our Candidates and Clients
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."
Candidate - Service Transition Manager, South Yorkshire
"Following the end of a role, I engaged with Sophie at Affecto, regarding an advertised role for a local Sheffield company.
She was very thorough when meeting with her to ensure that I was a suitable candidate with the necessary skills to perform the role.
Although obtaining an interview, the role was temporarily withdrawn due to an internal review, and Sophie promised to get back in touch when the role was re-advertised, which she did, and secured me a re-interview.
Throughout the process, both Sophie and Daniel were very helpful and kept me abreast of what was happening, and understanding of my personal circumstances."
A big thank you to the team at Affecto, I am now in a role that is perfectly suited to my skill set, and I am sure that this is due to their matching of candidates to appropriate roles"
Candidate - Project Manager, Harrogate
“Affecto were extremely astute when understanding my career needs. They recognized that role progression was a priority to me but that I also valued the work/life balance. The communication between myself and the Consultant was continual and informative. I felt that the whole process was efficient and that nobody was left in the dark.”
Candidate - Junior Network Engineer, Leeds
“I contacted Affecto after graduating from University with a degree in Computer Science. I wasn’t sure what route I should be taking, but after having a discussion with one of the Consultants we decided that my strengths would suit a Junior Network Engineer position. I was given advice at every stage of the application, and they always kept in touch to let me know about any other relevant roles. They took the difficulty out of finding my first graduate job.”Read More
