I applied for a role and received a call from Tammy shortly after, requesting my permission to submit my details for the role I applied for and explaining fully about the company and role. She made me feel at ease and refreshed my confidence. A telephone interview followed as I was away in Mallorca and had a really good interview. Arranged to meet on the Tuesday when I was back in the UK. Tammy co-ordinated everything for me. I had my second interview, again after talking with Tammy and getting prepared, I was offered the role the same day. I cannot thank AFR enough, efficient, professional and wonderful friendly team. Extremely helpful and grateful for all their help and helping me to secure my perfect role. Thank you

I am delighted that after only being registered with AFR Consulting for a few days I have found my ideal role with the help of Tammy and Sarah. I can highly recommend this agency to anyone looking for a new role. They kept me informed every step of the way and were always on hand to answer any questions. With best wishes to Tammy and her team. Lorraine

After completing university during the current global pandemic I thought it would be near impossible for me to get employment, However after finding a very interesting job online and with Tammy guiding me though the interview process I was able to feel more confident in myself and abilities. Again thank you Tammy! 😁

I would like to use an opportunity to thank for the support that both Tammy and Sarah gave to me throughout the whole interviewing process. They both made me feel confident in myself to go to the interview as tbh if it wasn’t for them I would have struggled a lot more during the whole process ( never been to one before). Tammy Smith was absolutely amazing !!!!!She made me feel comfortable, provided me with all information I needed to succeed!She is also very warm, super friendly and approachable, very reliable and informative. Honestly, I cannot thank them enough as they are just perfect career match makers!!!!!AFR Consulting/ Tammy Smith - you are a life changer!!!!Thank you very much!!!!

I had an email to let me know about a job opportunity and after a chat and a video interview that seemed to go really well, I was offered an interview. I cant praise them highly enough as they gave me the self confidence and information I needed and got the job. Three months later, yes it was the right job for me thank you everyone for your hard work.
