A for Appointments is a privately owned recruitment service which has provided both temporary & permanent flexible, efficient and affordable recruitment solutions since April 2000. We have a reputation for quality, efficiency plus an honest no nonsense approach. We are as passionate today as we have always been about the quality of service we provide to both the client and the candidate, we work hard to understand both their needs and endeavour to match the right candidate to the right job hence the majority of our business is built on recommendation. There is over 70 years combined experience within the recruitment team therefore our many years of experience has enabled us to develop and streamline the attraction and selection process which cuts down time wasted for the client meeting candidates who are clearly not the right match and for the candidate we truly listen to what they are looking for and only offer positions of suitability. It is this reputation that has led us to preferred supplier status to a no. of high profile clients.
