What AF Selection is about
We’re a niche recruitment specialists, dedicated to helping people craft careers in the marketing, digital, PR, social, and creative sectors, and have been doing so since 1988. We treat your career as if it is our own. We know it’s important and don’t take in lightly.
Our aim is to help innovative thinkers, doers and strategists enhance and build their careers. We mainly recruit the Midlands and the North West, but we have been known to venture as far afield as Scotland and even down to the ‘Big Smoke.’
We do not bang the same drum as everyone else.
It takes a person of real humility, courage and substance to stand up and follow a career they really believe in. We want to help achieve your ambitions and do this by being approachable, knowledgeable and sincere. We refuse to do ‘cool’ or ‘Billy big shot’, just to fit in but, we do put your career first.
Although the marketing scene has changed dramatically over the years, our foundations and ethics have stayed the same. Our aim is to guide you through the career-moving process. After 30+ years as a niche recruitment agency, we feel a great deal of responsibility and pride in helping you find your ideal role, whether you’re an Account Executive making your first career move or a Digital Marketing Manager stepping up the ladder. We’re pretty good at the middle bit too!
We don’t have recruitment consultants on commission or stupid KPIs – they’re people who have lived and seen a bit, and most of all, have significant expertise in your field and appreciate the pressure of moving jobs, and how to best go about it.
We’re an eclectic bunch of people, with a mix of ages, characters, and personalities, but most importantly, we possess vast amounts of recruitment know-how regarding the marketing, digital, and creative sectors. We’ve devoted the majority of our lives to it and there’s not much we haven’t seen. The best is a wonderful candidate who fell sound asleep in the reception of his potential new employer, and was kindly stirred by the passing Creative Director, and then went on to get the job. It’s still to be topped.
You’ll also find we’re happy to offer advice on things, such as your CV, tips on interviews, or give you a steer on your salary and market value. Moving jobs isn’t easy – we get it more than most.
There are quite a few people out there, who do what we do, but take the time to talk to us, and you’ll soon see that our intentions are in the right place. We understand that moving jobs isn’t straightforward – it takes time, patience, energy and a fair bit of resilience.
If you’re genuinely interested in pressing ahead with your career, then we’d love to be able to help you get to where you want to be.
