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.
