"ALLEN & YORK were extremely helpful.   I contacted ALLEN & YORK towards the end of my MSc studies and they were able to direct me to a consultant immediately.  My consultant, Chris Saunby, recognised how my skills and experience could be useful to employers and was able to set up a first interview, even though I had visa work restriction issues and the job market was difficult. 

Chris continued to stay in contact with me throughout the interview process, offering advice and also keeping the employer in the loop as to my activities when I was extremely busy during my final studies.  I have recommended ALLEN & YORK to several of my professional colleagues as I was so happy with their helpful service.
