'Fresh out of university looking for a full-time job can be a daunting experience. allmanhall had given me my big break back in 2009 and I have not looked back since. From starting off as a data admin clerk, I have now developed into the Saffron and IT Support Manager and could not have achieved this without the encouragement and support from allmanhall. The company fund training courses relevant to my role and I now have face to face meetings with potential and new clients heading up Saffron. It's an exciting innovative and forward thinking organisation'. - Craig Smith, Saffron & IT Support Manager Feb 2018.
