I have nothing but positive things to say about Andy File Associates and especially Anne Braithwaite, she has been a real pleasure to deal with and found me what seems to be my ideal role. She was very professional and a great ambassador for the company, she had kept in touch and made me feel like I wasn't just a number. Would happily deal with again (but in the greatest respect hope I don't need to 🙂 )

The best agency I've come across. Debra in particular was fantastic. She's friendly and helpful and made sure I was okay on my first day. That human touch makes a big difference. I would recommend this agency to anyone.

This is my first time using Andy File Associates though not my first time using Recruitment Agencies.Of late, my usual agency has been missing the mark and I took the opportunity to work with Andy and Steve on a position that was still very much an 'idea', but not cast in stone.Their patience and guidance has helped us to find a superb candidate, who I can already see will make a huge difference to our company and to say I'm extremely grateful is an understatement.Any business owner will understand my thoughts when I say they've lifted a weight off my shoulders with this one.We've been spinning our wheels trying to find the best way forward for months and Andy File Associates have helped us to clear a path, cut back the undergrowth and put a perfect guide in place to move us forward.It's been a 'Stellar' performance guys, thank you.

Andy File Associates are what all Recruitment companies should aspire to be.I have worked with AFA both as a client and as a candidate and in both instances I found the Team to be professional, honest and reliable.In 2023 I was able to find work with the hard work of both Debra and Rebecca who were both helpful and friendly in their manner. Both were genuinely interested in finding me employment that suited me.I would recommend giving them a call now if you're a candidate looking for your ideal employment or a client looking for your next big hire.

Rebecca from Andy File Associates Ltd was brilliant right from my initial application for the position that I was very interested in and was most suitable for me. Rebecca made a very prompt reply to me and was able to quickly secure arrangements for an interview, where she offered help and useful support for me to prepare beforehand. The interview went marvellously well and I was exceptionally lucky to be offered the position very shortly afterwards which I was very grateful and appreciative for. Rebecca did an excellent job from the start and I would thoroughly recommend Rebecca and give thanks for all her efforts, experience and expertise in her field. Thank you for a job well done, Rebecca.
