Hi there! My names Heidi and I am the office and marketing assistant at A for Appointments. I have recently joined the team, and they are a great bunch. After I got a call from Ashleigh, one of the consultants, she was amazing she invited me for a face-to-face interview, and she talked about possible opportunities and how she could help. I was shocked; I didn’t know job recruiting agencies existed. I thought I was left to drown in the sea of jobs. Luckily for me, they saw my potential and offered me a job inhouse, which I am extremely grateful for.
So, a little bit about me, I am 20 years old and graduate from the University of Sheffield with a Journalism degree in a few months. I understand that looking for a graduate job can be difficult, stressful, especially with university deadlines. A for appointments is a job recruiting agency in Sheffield that aims to find the right job for your skillset, someone to help you find employment with friendly support throughout.
Working at A for Appointments provides me with experience within a company structure that is fantastic for my CV.

But from the get-go, A for Appointments professional and welcoming approach make you feel at ease and instantly reassure you and guide you throughout.
They help everyone find a job no matter who you are, they cover across the board on a generalist basis. I know from personal experience looking for jobs can be very monotonous and brain- draining. Sometimes I find jobs, but I do not know where they are located, the details of the role and whether it is suitable for me. Job hunting can be a lonely process, but it becomes so much less so when you are with a recruitment agency, especially one that cares!
