Demand for tech specialists boosts recruitment firm

Sheffield-based Affecto recruitment is growing following ‘ongoing demand for specialist talent within the technology sector’.

The company, which was founded in 2014 by managing director Daniel Koseoglu, partners with some of the region’s most well established brands, as well as innovative start-ups choosing to base themselves in Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire.

Jasmin Fletcher has joined the team, bringing with her more than six years supporting organisations in candidate short sectors such as engineering, sales and technology. Tasked with growing and managing her own portfolio of clients she will initially work with senior project & programme recruiter Kate Loach, before progressing into a more senior role, focussing on bringing her own clients on board.

The latest move coincides with a recent announcement by Tech North that 1-in-20 of the North’s workforce is employed in the digital economy, and that the North is now home to almost 300,000 tech workers.

Daniel Koseoglu said: “Not a day goes by when the growth of the region’s tech sector doesn’t make the news, and the ultimate success of any expanding industry is dependent on the talent within it.

“To that end, it’s hardly surprising that key decision makers within businesses operating in this sector are looking to ensure they are talking to the candidates that can help drive their business forward. That, in turn, is leading to increased demand for our services.

“In order to ensure we continue to deliver not only a specialist recruitment service to our clients, but also valuable insight in to benchmark salaries and role feasibility studies, it’s incredibly important that we focus on building our own team of experts.

“With more than six years’ experience recruiting technical talent – operating both in-house and within an agency environment – Jasmin is a very welcome addition to the Affecto team, and we look forward to working with her as we further strengthen our network over the coming months.”

Affecto is one of the latest sponsors to show their support for Sheffield Digital – an organisation dedicated to developing the best possible environment for setting up, working in and growing digital businesses in Sheffield and the surrounding region.
