Case studies and testimonials

It is said that self praise is no recommendation so we asked the people that matter – our clients and candidates. Here they talk us through their recruitment experiences and give a first-hand account of what it's like to work with us.

"Over the years we have been constantly happy with the great service offered by Allen Associates and the high standard of candidates that they’ve put forward for a number of different roles. We’ve found Allen Associates professional, extremely fast and responsive and easy to work with. They understand how our college works and have consistently delivered the right people, so much so that many of the candidates still work for the college years after the initial introduction."
