Candidate (Former Employee) – Birmingham, West Midlands – 18 October 2017
Incompetent at best, probably just lazy. Recruitment at its shoddiest - poor communication, little appreciation of candidate needs, SF rarely have a retained assignment and behave like many bodyshop agencies. Avoid
From getting my name wrong to never responding to emails or telephone calls, even when I would be responding to their correspondence, I would never recommend SF Group, there are far better accountancy recruitment consultants out there

Absolutely terrible. After two weeks of great contact they basically disappear on you. Try applying to jobs you see through them and chase your account manager and they ignore you! The only time the want a "catchup" is to check they can still keep you on their books. Would NOT recommend at all, far better agencies out there with staff that know what they're doing.
Absolutely no pros
AVOID THEM!! If you want a job they aren't the agency to spend your quality time on
Administrator (Former Employee) – Manchester – 22 November 2016
I worked with them for over 4 months. I worked really hard every chance I got. But whenever I needed help or to speak to my consultant they would never get back and I got blamed in the end. Company is not structured to help you throughout your work time so no point joining tthem
Job seeker (Former Employee) – Derby, UK – 12 October 2015
Having used the SF Group to help me find work I was left thoroughly disappointed. I was asked to meet a member of their team to fill in paperwork and discuss options on a number of occasions and the individual that was meant to meet with me never turned up. When I contacted said person they would always blame me even though I had sat waiting in the location for over an hour each time.
When they did eventually secure work for myself I was unfortunate to have fallen unwell and needed time off. The employer I was with was fine with the time off required but the SF Group recommended the client let me go.
Throughout the whole time I dealt with them they showed nothing but unprofessionalism.
