Welcome to Afina Partners – the flexibility specialists.

We focus on agility and view work as an activity, not just a place. We offer considered, forward-looking recruitment for exceptional careers and successful businesses. We’re nimble, responsive and know that collaboration and straightforward communication get results. We are driven by finding the best results for our clients and our candidates. We’d love to work for you.

Afina Partners was created in 2012 as a boutique agency to bridge the gap between traditional recruitment companies and executive search firms.

“I wanted to establish a recruitment business to challenge the status quo. My 10 years’ experience within the industry has shown me how vital it is to establish strong one-to-one relationships with clients and candidates, in order to really understand skills and opportunities. Increasingly, these relationships have demonstrated how essential flexibility is – in life, and in business. Afina Partners was created to realise the opportunity to succeed in both.”

Emma Miller, founder.

Before establishing Afina Partners, Emma Miller worked for many years at Anderson Hoare. Prior to that she worked both in-house and agency-side in PR & Communications – beginning by assisting the PR team of a healthcare marketing company, moving on to digital PR company Relish Communications, followed by a year in Sydney. More recently she was a PR Manager for the Conran Shop and PR & Fundraising Manager for the children’s charity Kids Company.

Emma’s long and varied career, agency and client-side across PR, Communications, Fundraising and Recruitment makes her well-placed to understand the needs of both clients and candidates.

Afina Partners’ approach is a personal one
We take time to meet, and to appreciate the business, company and people we represent. It’s also bespoke. There’s no one-size-fits-all scenario. We’re most excited about the challenges presented by new and different situations – of people and businesses who want to think more bravely, more flexibly and more freely. We strive to ensure that personalities, skills and roles are perfectly matched. Culture and the cultural fit are critical.

We’re flexible and we’re not biased. We work with a wide range of industries from start-ups and not-for-profit sectors to FTSE PLCs. We offer permanent, contract, interim, part-time and retained search recruitment. Our diverse client portfolio covers:

  • Operations
  • HR
  • Finance
  • PR
