Linda – Candidate, Chesterfield


I was introduced to Andy File Associates by a friend, she told me how the company and Debra was instrumental in helping her find a job.
I contacted Debra, she led me through the process of what I needed to do, the process and forms were simple and completed easily.
Within a few days, I was invited to an interview for which I got the job.
I was so pleased with the process and all the help and encouragement given especially from Debra, I would recommend their services to all.
Debra has also followed up to see if I’ve settled in my role, which was lovely of her to do, 10 out 10 for service and help.

Matt – Candidate – Product Design Engineer


I would thoroughly recommend Andy File associate’s if you’re looking for a new role.

In particular working with Dan, he was very helpful and friendly throughout my whole interview/recruitment process. Dan was also respectful of my time at my ex employer and didn’t call during work hours unless it suited me. He offered me a lot of advice with how to handle some matters with my ex employer and I do not regret my decision in leaving.

Dan and Andy File Associates are unique in their approaches and are unlike any other recruiter I have worked with. I never felt pressured or pushed and I thank Dan for that.

Errol – Candidate – General Operative

My welfare and all other work related issues were treated with the utmost professionalism and concerns were dealt with in an expeditious manner that really gained my trust during this journey and more so Rebecca never failed to give her time to respond and deliver on so many issues regarding my employment with her client.

My sincere gratitude goes out to Rebecca for the service rendered and I would surely recommend anyone looking for work to contact Rebecca at Andy File Associates.”

Dyce Energy – Client


We highly recommend Andy File Associates Ltd for recruitment needs. We recently worked closely with Daniel Owen and successfully recruited 2 new team members. The service Dan provided was very professional and he was always available to answer any questions. Recruiting through Andy File Associates made the whole process much more simple and efficient. We will definitely use the service again.

Matt – Candidate – Business Development Manager


I believe that people buy into a person before any kind of product or service is put to them.
Andy is an organised and dedicated business owner who has demonstrated his broad experience and knowledge when I most needed it. He can be counted on even when unavailable and is all too happy to return a call answering that pressing question, follow up with that enquiry and align your needs with those of the business’s he represents, ensuring a great match. He is driven, committed and tirelessly professional and I will not look anywhere else to fulfil my search requirements.

Chris – Candidate – Warehouse Operative


I was first contacted by Dan at Andy File Associates after being made redundant and posting my CV online since then nothing has been too much trouble. Within a couple of hours Dan had placed me in a small bike building company Planet X where I have just signed a permanent contract. I would like to again take time to thank Dan and all the team at Andy File for their support and encouragement during my time on their books.

Nick – Candidate – Furnace Operative

There were some issues along the way regarding certain things and Rebecca took them all in her stride and dealt with them accordingly. I am really happy in my employment now and would highly recommend Andy file associates and Rebecca as a consultant.

Andy – Candidate – Key Account Manager


I recently dealt with Debra in relation to a new opportunity I have just accepted. What was refreshing was dealing with a recruiter that always contacted me when they said they would, kept me up to date with the process and was always contactable when needed. A professional service that I would happily recommend to others.
Thanks again.

Richard – Candidate – Mechanical Design Engineer


I have been really pleased with my experience with Andy File Associates, in particular working with Dan and sorting out my new job. Dan was very friendly and also very professional. He respected my current work situation and never called out of the blue or at a time that wasn’t suitable or while I was in work. He would always text first simply asking for a convenient time to talk. This, in my experience, is the opposite of how other agencies do business – we’ve all been there before….the uncomfortable phone call while you’re at work having to pretend its a friend and asking them to call later! Would thoroughly recommend using Andy File Associates – from day one we were on the same page in respect to my needs and where I wanted to take my career. Dan didn’t waste my time with roles that weren’t suitable and he didn’t pester me trying to go to interview for jobs he knew I wouldn’t be interested in. This was down to a really solid introduction meeting and really nailing down my needs and ambitions. Really happy with how things worked out and I can’t wait to start my new job!

Carl – Candidate – Warehouse Operative

“Good Afternoon Andy and Daniel,

Now things have settled down I would like to take the time to thank you both for the amazing job you did for me.

I think you have found me the perfect company to work with.

I can’t praise you highly enough for the help, support and guidance I received all way through the recruitment process.”

Tony – Candidate – Buyer


Hi Andy – thought I’d send this to you personally – didn’t want to make our Rebecca blush!!!


I have had the pleasure of dealing with Rebecca whilst we worked together on a role for me within an Engineering Company in South Yorkshire on a temporary basis.


I have always found Rebecca to be courteous, supportive and kept me informed all the way along the process.  In a challenging market currently, it was paramount that communication was key and I personally am extremely grateful to Rebecca in particular, but to all at Andy File Associates who are a real credit to their profession.   I will always keep in touch with AFA and Rebecca and consider myself to have developed a friendship with them.

D Rodgers – Candidate – Sales Executive


I just had to send this email to say how impressed I am with one of your staff, Debra Foster.

Debra, to me, has been fantastic.  Attentive, thorough, thoughtful and professional.  I have had many dealings with recruitment agencies and I am honest when I say Debra has been by far the best I have had dealings with.

Please, please take this into account when Debra’s appraisal comes in etc.

Thankyou too, to your firm.  This experience has been a huge boost for me and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you ( which I already have).

D Rodgers

“I’d just like to take this opportunity in thanking Anne at Andy File Associates for your utmost professionalism, communication and the personal factor in securing me employment at the first hurdle. The world we are living in, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, is one of stress, uncertainty and concerns for the health of yourself and loved ones but not forgetting, the financial implications that coincide.

You have provided me with a wonderful opportunity to forge a career at a strong and able company to which, I am entirely grateful.

Thank you once again, Anne. “

Beckie – Candidate – Accounts Assistant


“Would really recommend Andy File if your looking for work. Dealt with Kelly and Andy and their help was much appreciated. Looking for work during the pandemic has been so tough, but they always kept me upto date. As soon as companies started to open I had interview opportunities. I’ve now been placed in what I hope will be an amazing role. Thank you so much.”

Steve Burley – Director/Owner – Burley Group Financial Services


Andy and his team has provided several members of staff over the last few years. They always goes the extra mile to help both us and the candidates. They certainly ‘break the mold’ for recruitment consultants. Highly recommended, and will certainly be the first persons I call when I need more staff. – Director and Owner of the Burley Group / Burley Financial Services

Michael Holmes – Sales and Service Manager – Exclusive Networks

“Having worked with Debra and the team at Andy File Associates, I rarely enlist the services of another recruitment specialist. The team here are great at getting to know you as a hiring manager and your business to send the best candidates for you which saves sifting through loads of unnecessary and irrelevant candidates. The support for the candidate and the customer once a selection has been made is also second to none.”
