When it comes right down to it, we all want to feel as if we matter. As employers, we all know the importance of showing our teams that they are valued, but what about candidates? Does the candidate experience really matter?    What is the candidate experience?  The candidate experience refers to everything that h...

I heard a rather nice little saying the other day. It was ‘A good job pays you twice, once in money and once in lifestyle’. I like how that so neatly sums up the attraction of benefits for new employees. Not all candidates are driven by salary; in fact, just the opposite. There is a...

There is a real value in performing a salary survey. With the current candidate shortage, it is doubly important that you make sure any salary offer you are making is, at the minimum, at a level where it will attract candidates to investigate the role further. So, with that in mind, we thought it would...

The default position for UK professionals has traditionally been to head south to the capital. The streets of London were paved with gold, apparently. That may no longer be the case, though. In fact, to be blunt, not only is London not the career destination it once was, but it is also slipping behind its...

It’s few short months since we were concerned that there would be a mass unemployment problem because of the pandemic, and we would be inundated with candidates. Well, not only has that not happened, but the opposite is currently the case. Maybe that will change, and perhaps the can has just been kicked down the...

Let me start by apologising because the title of this article is a little misleading. The article is really about the situation we are currently seeing in the employment market. For those of you who wanted a yes or no answer to the question ‘should I review my salary offer?’ the answer is an emphatic...

There has been a lot of chatter about whether people will return to the office after lockdown finally eases. If we were all in the office pre-pandemic, why would we not go back post-pandemic? Actually, it may not be quite as cut and dried as it first seems, ‘Should the workforce return to the office?’...

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 youread more

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

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!!!!read more

Really impressed with AFR Consulting and their speedy effort to find me suitable employment. Tammy and Sarah really had my best interests at heart and the whole experience was much more of personal service than a business transaction as found at other recruitment agencies. I would certainly be using them in the future after trusting them to find me the perfect job.
