A Sheffield recruitment firm has celebrated its fifth anniversary – after finding work for more than 500 people.

Andy File Associates, on Nursery Street in the city centre, was set up in the middle of the recession in 2009.

Since then, it has found work for hundreds of people, predominantly in engineering and manufacturing roles.

Andy, who began with just a phone, a computer and a list of friends in business who have since become key clients, said: “Having started in the heart of the recession I wasn’t sure what the business would be like in 2014, so I’m proud to say we’ve managed to grow to seven staff covering a variety of industries. I’ve been lucky to have a number of loyal customers and a great team.”

The teams and those associated with the business will celebrate the anniversary at Cubana, in Sheffield city centre, on Friday.
