Local Recruitment Company Beating the Recession

9th March 2012

Expanding Sheffield-based recruitment company A for Appointments marked their 12th anniversary last week with the opening of their new offices on Townhead Street in the heart of the City Centre.

Clients old and new attended the event which they held in association with their chosen charity Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice. A for Appointments have built their reputation over the years on referrals and their dedication not only to placing candidates, but supporting them through the interview process and providing CV advice for all applicants.  A for Appointments also have over 900 assessments available to use for their clients as well as benchmarking and private interviewing facilities. They are also planning to expand their workforce in 2012 due to an increase in business, which is refreshing news for the city in the current job market. A for Appointments is headed up by Sheffield businesswoman Margaret Haywood, who won the highly commended Business Woman of the year award in 2004. Margaret believes it's important to support the local community and through various events, they have already raised over £500 for the Bluebell Wood Children's charity and plan to hold at least 3 other events this year, the next one being a fashion show to be held in the spring. Margaret said: Blue Bell Wood is a very worthy charity and we are very proud to be part of such an inspiring institution and will continue to support them in the coming year. For further information, please contact Margaret Haywood on 0114 2757744 or by email at margaret@aforappointments.com
