Our History.

During her time working as a Brand/ Regional Manager for over 15 years, Margaret recognised that the community wanted a more flexible, innovative, honest and tailor-made recruitment services. 

Therefore, she opened the doors of A for Appointment in order to provide the highest quality recruitment service. Due to our success, Margaret received Businesswoman of the Year in 2004.

Margaret’s daughter Marrie Joined A for Appointments in 2009. Marrie got the feel for recruitment while working part time at the office while studying at Leeds Met University. After thorough training and development Marrie soon grew to become a well-respected Recruitment Consultant who is well known within the industry.


Since returning from mat leave in 2017 Marrie has proved you can still be successful in Recruitment even when juggling your career and being a mum,  with the right support around you!


Marrie is now enjoying her new responsibilities at A For Appointments taking over the overall running of the business, as Margaret phases into her retirement.  She is determined to follow on the successes of what Margaret has achieved, looking to grow & develop the business with her own team around her. Marrie immediately recognised one of the first things she needed to do was launch a new, up to date, fresh, modern, and ‘user friendly ’website in order to put her stamp on the business! 

Big enough to deliver, small enough to care.
