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.
