Finding a job is not always an easy process. But whatever stage you’re at in your career, having the right person like Mr. Michael Luxton guiding you through your job search can make all the difference when it comes to finding the right role. In addition, one of the best resources you can take advantage of is Affinity Recruitment Agency. In September 2017, I sent my CV to Affinity Recruitment along with my cover letter explaining what my qualifications and job skill sets are. I met Mr. Luxton in September 2017 who was my potential recruiter at the time. Mr. Luxton was always working hard and closely with companies to help find a suitable role for me that matches my qualifications and skill sets. He always kept me up-to-date when companies would get back to him with details. By that time, Mr. Luxton had already build up a good relationship with a lot of top employers, which has giving me exclusive access to different positions. Mr. Luxton has always put forward positions that I would not know about. In fact, my first interview was the same way. It was a job that I did not know about and somehow, he persuaded them into giving me an interview. Fortunately, I was able to hold up my end and I did very well with the interview. I started the job the very next day. Once I’ve secured the job, the role of Mr. Luxton did not stop there. He handles all the paperwork and other formalities and liaise with your new employer to make sure everything is in place for your first day and beyond such as emailing or calling to check up you. He can even negotiate your salary for you and make sure you get the best package out there. Other benefits of using Affinity Recruitment agency includes. CV and cover letter advise, expert interview coaching, constructive feedback from each interview and employer, specialist advise for your chosen field and being put forward for any relevant rolls that come up. In conclusion, job hunting can be a lonely process, but it becomes so much less when you’re with Affinity Recruitment.
I have recently been placed by Affinity and wanted to write with regards to my experience working with Michael. I do not normally rave about experiences such as these, however, I was so impressed with the quality of service provided, and the fact that he continuously went the extra mile, it would be amiss of me not to mention anything. From the outset Michael was efficient, reliable and demonstrated a high level of professional integrity, this is already a good base given my experience with other recruitment agents. Furthermore, he accommodated all the relatively demanding requirements of variation of hours and study leave throughout this process; On a personal note, I found his manner reassuring, and all in all he has been a pleasure to work with. Contrary to what I believe to be acceptable, he was also available on weekends on numerous occasions. I would definitely recommend Affinity to family and friends based on my experience and although I'm confident that I've found the perfect match, if I ever need to use an agency in the future I will certainly go back.
I have now started work in my new job which Mike kindly assisted me in obtaining, and everything has been lovely so far. During my onboarding process from the time I first met with Mike at Affinity up until the time I had been accepted and started work in my new role, I was very pleased with the service I obtained from him. He made sure to stay in touch and kept me continuously updated along the way. Even though he had to travel during the onboarding process,he made sure that I was taken care of in his absence. It was indeed a pleasure working with Mike to secure my new position. Right from the beginning his approach was courteous and professional and for this I will always be grateful. I therefore have no hesitation in recommending Mike as a Recruitment Specialist and in fact I have already made several referrals to friends and family on his behalf.
I would like to express my gratitude to Mike at Affinity Recruitment for helping me secure a new job. He really made the effort to talk to me about what I really wanted for my new position. I especially appreciated his fast response and coordination in finding the appropriate role for me. He was very professional and so easy to talk to and always kept me updated and ensured a colleague was there to support me in his absence. Mike made sure to follow up with me even after my transition to ensure that all was well. I would definitely recommend Mike and Affinity Recruitment to family and friends based on my experience and if I ever need to use an agency in the future I will certainly go back to them.
If you're looking to enjoy a slice of the Caribbean life in a job that you love, then look no further than Joanna and Mike.I started my 3,700-mile journey back in February, thinking it would take months, possibly even years, until the dream became real... By May, I had a job. I reached out to Affinity, where I was put in contact with Joanna who set me up with a fantastic software developer role working for a well-established company on Island. Joanna made everything very easy for me; she told me everything I needed to do, how to do it and when it had to be done. I followed suit, ticked the boxes, and before we knew it I had a Skype interview arranged. Halfway through the process I was introduced to Mike who then took the lead in helping me seal the deal. Mike, just like Joanna, was incredibly helpful. He was somehow always available for discussing things with me! We would bounce calls and emails back and forth and in no time, I had been offered the job and my work permit was undergo... absolute clockwork. Joanna and Mike connected the what-seemed-unreachable dots, making it an incredibly seamless process from the beginning. Soon after the job offer, my flights were booked and was due to meet them personally for the first time. We had coffee together and chatted about the whole ordeal and what life is like on Island. They're both incredible people, so personable, and were as driven as I was in getting me to Cayman. I fully recommend any person to get in touch right now if you're considering the move. I'm currently writing this testimonial on the beach, looking out to the sea, wondering how on earth all this has happened! Well, it's the extraordinary help and guidance from Mike and Joanna that's got me here. Thank you to you both for this amazing journey!
Working with Affinity Recruitment and Freya has been a true and sincere blessing.

Freya played a huge role in helping me secure my new position as a Senior Trust Administrator. She is very professional and consistently kept me informed on every opportunity that arose and her feedback was much appreciated. I would have no hesitation recommending Freya to anyone looking for a new position or career.
If you are in the job searching market or wish to change your job or career, I fully recommend Freya Eyley at Affinity Recruitment Agencyyourgo toperson for help in finding that job or career you are seeking. I placed my Resume with Affinity a year ago and job opportunities came up in my career field and she approached me and helped placeme in my current job. Freya is approachable, very helpful and knowledgeable in the job market. Give her a call at Affinity Recruitment.
I left my job without having anything to go to after, I decided to turn to Affinity and lucky enough, Freya was my agent. I was literally out of a job for 7 days and was placed right away. Freya's work ethic and determination for her clients is amazing and I wouldn't recommend anyone else.
Freya was such an amazing help to me in terms of finding a new position in a new company. Fitting me with my new employer was a blessing to say the least, Freya’s keen eye for my qualities and where they’d best fit was key. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a fresh start or a change in scenery as she’s very equipped to do so!
Freya is the consummate professional; responsive, efficient and an expert in her industry. I have had the pleasure of working as a Temp through Affinity with Freya as my main point of contact. As well as being on the ball professionally, she also has flair for managing people in a friendly and empathetic manner. She truly cares about her clients and her employees. Freya and the rest of the team at Affinity are amongst the best in Cayman, and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a job as the first port of call
What a helpful, well-organized and proactive company Affinity are. Emma is excellent and from the start has been fantastic at understanding what I am looking for, keeping in touch and ensuring I am happy at work. I was contacted by Emma the same day she received my CV and attended an interview the very next day. From there on in the service was great with a high level of communication and always somebody helpful and approachable at the end of the phone or in the office. Affinity found me a role within two days and I started work within weeks because the whole process was seamless. Emma is really helpful and enthusiastic and made me feel valued from the outset. She has always maintained contact with me, ensuring I am happy within my role, finding out whether my needs have changed and always putting forward opportunities which she knows will interest me. Emma took the time to understand what I was looking for and made suggestions about what might work for me and she was right. I am two months into a role I am really enjoying and Emma still takes the time to contact me and make me a feel a valued member of the Affinity team. I would highly recommend Affinity as an agency and Emma as a very friendly and approachable professional. I hope to work with them for many years to come.
This was my first time using a recruitment firm and I am very happy with the experience. Emma along with her colleagues from Affinity were devoted to finding a position that was suitable to my personality and career aspirations. From the initial meeting to preparing for interviews to submitting documents, Emma provided critical guidance through every step of the process. Emma is an excellent recruiter and I am very grateful for the time and care she took to help me. I would highly recommend Emma and Affinity to anyone who is looking for employment in Grand Cayman.
I have had THE BEST experience with the company. My recruiter is/was Freya Eyley and she is a pleasant, respectful and very helpful young lady in guiding me the right way with interview tips. I highly recommend Freya to assist persons like me in search for jobs as she ensures to find out what you are looking for and place you in a position that you are qualified in, but to also grow and reach the goal(s) you intend to reach. I have been a client with Affinity for roughly 3 months and it pushed me to be better in areas I wasn’t strong in. With the help of the Affinity team I was able to find a full-time position and master all of my weaknesses, I’ve passed every interview successfully in selling myself to the companies and I’ve created relationships with members and companies I have been interviewed with and also companies I have been employed at from the agency. In order to actually ensure that you will find something for yourself or you will make a great impression in order to stay with the company you have to pull your own weight and possibly make a few adjustments and go with the attitude that will get you far and Affinity has been helping me with advice. I couldn’t have done it without them. They were with me every step of the way and I am very grateful for it.
Today being my first day at work in over 2 months I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank you on behalf of my family and myself for your support and dedication. As I stated before, my CV was with 3 different agencies but from the very beginning your professionalism and support during my time of being employed was what made the difference for my placement. From the bottom of my heart I applaud you for your willingness to help and reassuring me that something will come through for me soon. Without fail, if I missed your call, an email would shortly follow, advising me of whatever advancements. My Family and I will be having a very Thankful Thanksgiving and a very Merry Christmas thanks to you and Affinity of-course. Once again Joanna, thank you very very much. You’re a Star!
I would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone at Affinity Personnel Solutions Ltd for their professionalism and dedication in helping me obtain a position with Cayman National Corporation Ltd. Due to Affinity’s effective and efficient recruitment process my application was shortlisted two weeks after submission. Affinity Personnel Solutions Ltd. had a fantastic insight into how the employer worked and exactly who they were looking for. I would recommend Affinity Personnel Solutions Ltd to any professional looking to further their career.”
I am grateful I have now secured the dream move I have been searching for. Thank you so much to the whole team of Affinity. I cannot speak highly enough of your service, you are simply excellent.
I have registered with Affinity for a very short period and I was placed in a permanent post promptly. Not only have they placed me into a position quickly, they have met my desires for employment and I am very happy. The service of this company was spectacular and I’ve already recommended this Agency to many. Thank you so much Affinity.
“I was very impressed with Affinity Personnel Solutions Ltd. as an establishment and also extremely pleased with the professionalism shown by staff and management. My recruiter, Philippa Clark, was a pleasure to work with, not only was she very professional in her approach, but she was also respectful and made me feel comfortable during my interview. She explained all details of the company and what was expected of me to help expedite the process. All throughout the process she kept me informed of new developments and was never too busy to return my calls or reply to my emails. I felt she genuinely had my interest at heart and helped me find the job I was excited about. I was placed quickly and she walked me through every step. It was a great experience! Thanks Affinity and Philippa!
“When I moved back to Cayman from Ireland, I was worried because of the effect of the current economic climate on the job market. I submitted my CV to Affinity and they responded immediately. Their positive approach gave me hope and within a week I was back in the work force. Their continued support has been a model of professionalism. I would recommend them to any of my friends.
When I first called Affinity, I was impressed with the professional, courteous and friendly manner in which I was greeted by the telephone attendant. Based on my experience with other companies, this not only sounded too good to be true, but it gave me the encouragement to meet their representative to further discuss my staffing needs. After meeting with the company representative, I left with the feeling that my staffing needs would be taken into consideration. The attendant was not only diligent and businesslike in her approach, but she was honestly willing to assist me and was dedicated and committed to the well being of her clients. Based on my initial positive experience and having worked with the company, I take great pride in personally recommending the company to anyone seeking employment, or any business wanting to recruit the right staff for its organization. I am confident that Affinity, through its professional and dedicated staff will choose the right candidates for the job. I will encourage every individual or company to contact Affinity before looking elsewhere as it stands tall above the rest of recruiting companies.
Affinity’s service is excellent! The staff is courteous, friendly and always very professional. They carefully assessed my goals and needs and did an excellent job finding a position that I was comfortable with. The lines of communication are always open and any questions were answered quickly. All around great company to work with.

My initial position was as temp for Affinity which I did for eighteen months, thoroughly enjoying the experience. Relocating to a new country is a major challenge and Affinity ensured that the transition was as smooth as possible. Due to the global economic slowdown, finding a permanent position was challenging, but Affinity, in the interim, ensured that I was employed in temporary positions until a position was found and guided me through the employment process. Michele and her staff are extremely helpful and no issue is too great for them to assist with. They go that extra mile for their clients and employees. A personal big thank you for all that you have done for me, it’s greatly appreciated.
Affinity Recruitment is fantastic. After speaking with them, the same day I sent them my application, I was placed within three days at an amazing company. Affinity works with me on every level and treats me like a true professional and not just a number. There are truly not enough good things I can say about working with them.
My exposure and dealings with Affinity Recruitment was a simple and straightforward event. They were professional, concise, courteous and knowledgeable. They understood my needs and requirements and streamlined finding a job in the Caymans. Their correspondence was prompt, the verbiage was clear and the process was well defined. Thanks to Meredith and the Team at Affinity, I found the perfect job in a tropical paradise. I highly recommend using Affinity Recruitment.
When I started to venture for other opportunities, I sent out a couple of emails to different known headhunters and Grey was the first to respond. Upon meeting him, he demonstrated expertise and knowledge of the industry. He was very professional, friendly and warm. I found comfort and confidence instantly. Grey is really good with keeping his clients updated and informed. He is on top of things and make sure he is coordinating on a timely manner. When the right opportunity came, he was very helpful and insightful. He represents his client’s best interest and ensure that potentials are maximized. He continue to follow-up and ensure things are accordingly right even beyond the point of contract signing. I would not hesitate to recommend Grey to anybody.
My experience with Affinity has been AWESOME!!! From the get go Grey had my interest at heart, I got the feeling that he was totally dedicated to my recruitment. Oftentimes, I wondered if I was his only client because I was always updated at each stage in the process. There was constant communication whether by emails or phone calls; if it was something that required my immediate attention he would call my mobile. He went above and beyond the call of duty as he was always accessible, I could call him or send an email at anytime and expect a prompt response. He maintained a professional behaviour throughout assuring me that he had my back at all times. At no time did I feel as if I was being fed false hope as he was very honest with me throughout the process, this alone speaks to his integrity as well as that of Affinity’s. I was always informed of his availability, if at any time he was unavailable there would be someone else who was quite able to continue until his return. I would definitely recommend Affinity to anyone looking for a “best fit” position in an organization. You will feel like you are their only client when dealing with them. They are very personable and exude such warmth, you feel like you are talking to a close friend.
Dear Grey, I just wanted to let you know how happy I am with the service provided by the Affinity Recruitment Ltd. office, and with you in particular. Your service from start to finish has been exemplary and on a professional, knowledgeable, yet friendly level that far exceeds all other recruitment agencies I have dealt with. Nothing ever seems to be too much trouble to you and I am made to feel unique, never feeling that I am just one of many clients that you and your office have to deal with each day. It has been a pleasure to be able to pay you back in some way by giving my wholehearted and thorough recommendation on what is a breath of fresh air in the recruitment industry in this area – Affinity Recruitment Ltd. Long may you continue to set standards for others to follow. I do wish you every success at the Affinity Recruitment agency as you deserve it.
This is the second time that Affinity Recruitment has placed me in employment and needless to say, I have been very impressed on both occasions with Affinity and the level of service and professionalism that I received, in addition to the quality of their client base. On this last placement, I dealt with Joanna Little who I found to be very professional and friendly and was in constant communication providing assistance and updates, and would certainly recommend any of my friends or acquaintances to contact her in the event they are looking for employment. I would also like to mention Barbara who assisted with the Immigration matters and who provided assistance when Joanna was not available.
I worked with Joanna and Affinity Recruitment to acquire my new position as Network Engineer in the Cayman Islands. Joanna was extremely friendly and in constant communication with me in regards to updates and developments on the opportunity. I also appreciated her willingness to provide advice and suggestions in regards to settling in to what was a new country for me. It was a pleasure working with Joanna and Affinity Recruitment throughout the entire process, and I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a new career in Cayman
Affinity was very helpful in preparing me for my interview with lots of advice from what type of questions to expect from your prospective employer, questions you should ask, and simple tips on what kind of things your interviewer will be looking for. They were also much more attentive then other recruitment companies I have tried in the past and treated me like more than a name in a stack of papers. Overall I would recommend Affinity to anyone looking for gainful employment!
I learned about this highly esteemed company in 2009, following the adverse effects of the credit crunch and growing uncertainty in the financial markets when friends requested for advice on the best recruitment agency on island. As I went through the profiles of recruitment agencies in the Cayman Islands the most amazing thing that struck me at the time was that though many organizations had considerable number of redundancies, were freezing recruitment of new employees Affinity Recruitment had employment opportunities on their website. I approached them on behalf of two friends and they were more than willing to assist. Despite the scarcity of employment opportunities at the time, Affinity managed to secure interviews and employment for my two friends in 2009 and 2011 respectively. On account of the above success stories and wonderful experience my friends had with Affinity, it was my number one choice when I decided to further my career and venture into an area which would help me meet my ultimate career goal. My personal experience with the company was remarkable, my first interaction with Michele was very informative and influenced my decision to make a career change. She took time to listen to me, inspired and motivated me to push towards my career aspirations and see beyond my limitations. Michele and the rest of the staff were devoted to secure a place for me within a very short time and this served as a great motivation during my job hunting phase. While dealing with Freya and Barbara, it was evident that the institution has the most professional and knowledgeable consultants on the job market, their client expectations, candidate profiling and immigration processes. I was impressed by Freya’s interview preparation procedures, continual support and constant communication at the interviews phase, salary discussions up until the job offer and work permit processing phases. Thanks a lot for your consideration and co-operation. I am grateful and thank you all for being exceptionally helpful in the matter. I will encourage others to seek career advancement through the same platform and wish the company all the best.
Freya is a true professional. Recruitment in Cayman was a new experience for me and she was more than helpful in finding excellent candidates, providing information on the labour laws and following through to ensure that all our requirements were met. It was a pleasure working with her and if the opportunity should arise, I would work with her again.
Our company has used Affinity Recruitment for Recruiting, Immigration and Payroll Services in the Cayman Islands and we have always found their staff to be professional and helpful. They truly partner with you to accomplish what you need, offering solutions and options to our changing demands.
My experience with Affinity was second to none. Freya was extremely helpful and always fast to respond to any questions or queries, always providing a high level of professionalism. She was always very informative and even now that I have been placed in the exact role that I wanted, she continues to check in to see how it's going. On visiting the office the staff at Affinity were always very warm and friendly and I would approach Affinity again if I ever needed to. I would highly recommend Freya and her team to help find the perfect role for you!
Thank you for the fantastic service you provided, helping me to get a job when I arrived in Cayman. From our first meeting, in which you advised me the best way to focus and rewrite my CV, up until the day I started work, you have been a constant source of support and guidance. Your customer service throughout the process has been superb and I have enjoyed getting to know you on the journey. I will be recommending you to anyone I know who is looking for a job and if there is anything else I can do to recommend you, please let me know.
Freya’s professional approach to recruitment has aided us to seek the right professional for our growing business. She has an enthusiasm to succeed in the difficult recruitment requests we have asked.
Freya is an amazing recruiter. Getting a job in Cayman was a totally new experience for me and she helped me throughout the entire recruitment process. She also ensured that my transition from Canada to Cayman went smoothly and was always there if I needed her. It was a pleasure working with her and I definitely recommend her to anyone looking for employment out here.
This was the second time Affinity has placed me with an employer in Grand Cayman and once again, it was a very positive experience. Freya and Michele were very responsive and professional while at the same time providing that human touch which can sometimes be lacking with other recruiters. The end result was an excellent match. I would highly recommend Affinity as a recruiter for anyone in the Cayman Islands employment market.
Human ‘resource’ or human being? This is what sets Freya and her colleagues at Affinity apart from the crowd. Not once did I hear that ugly recruiter phrase “my client” this, or “my client” that, as if the prospective candidate, was a mere potential ‘human resource’ and an insignificant feature in the process. Freya is a bridge connecting people with particular skills to people who need to hire those skills. Freya can ‘see’ the human being, behind the resume. She sees the wholeness of a person, not just a ‘resource’. From her initial contact through to its conclusion, Freya communicated at every point with her warm human touch which ultimately created a very happy working relationship among all involved. Happy client, happy candidate and happy recruitment agency too. Win-win all round. If employers are looking for a ‘human resource’ then there’s plenty of agents out there for you. If you’re looking for the right person for the role, then Freya’s your best bet. She connects with candidates and develops her relationship with them so you can be sure you’ve got the right person.
