Not getting me

We listen to you

We take the time to fully understand what you want from your next position.. Our focus is on you - your aspirations and your individual needs.


“I love the job and I feel very lucky to be working in such a prestigious and beautiful place. I would also like to say that you have all been so friendly, efficient and professional. I have done a lot of agency work in the past and you have been the best agency to work for by far!”

You are not just a number to us

No two jobs are the same, just as no two people are the same either. One person’s priorities, requirements and ambitions for their career will be very different to someone else’s and it is our job to understand precisely what these are. We can help to position you as the Candidate of Choice for those Employers that best match your requirements and we will only contact you about positions that we believe are a good fit.

“From start to finish, the experience was wonderful. Allen Associates really stand out from all other recruiters. I put this down to them meeting you and being personable and actually having a vested interest in you. You feel like a person, not a number with them. Thanks again for everything!”

Rachel Ennis

“Very professional and not at all ‘salesy’ which is a refreshing change. The consultants I had contact with all seemed to know what they were talking about. I’ll come again!”

Gillian Gammon

“Everyone I have spoken with is incredibly polite, professional, and easy to work with. All updates have been timely, replies to contact have been near instant, and in general everyone has been friendly and efficient. So thank you!”
