About us

We recruit a range of candidates from operational level through to middle and executive management, for permanent and contract positions.

The successful recruitment of staff requires industry knowledge and an in-depth understanding of your organisations and the specific role.

Edward Fila Associates is committed to providing our clients and candidates the best service possible.

As such, we are committed to providing the most efficient service achievable to our clients and candidates within each of the markets and sectors in which we work.


Matching Candidate Aspirations to Employer Expectations

Whether you are looking to recruit on a permanent or contract basis, you want the best people, whose career needs meet your organisation's objectives.

Working closely with candidates and employers alike, our aim is to create placements which meet both parties' immediate and future requirements, matching candidate aspiration to employer expectation.

This thorough and consultative approach makes for an efficient and cost effective service that is held in high regard.

Edward Fila Associates is able to add value to your recruitment process by undertaking Discus Ability assessments, recognised as one of the most effective methods of measuring a candidate's current ability and future potential.

Including ability tests as a part of our recruitment and development solutions helps ensure that only the highest calibre of candidates are recommended to our clients for interview.


Edward Fila – Director - Midlands Office

Edward formed the company in 2011 following a period in a recruitment franchise where he spent 5 years.

His experience of both the recruitment industry and the motor trade, as a buyer for 20 years, brought about the idea to create the business and provide support to the dealer network in staff placement. He has a deep understanding of the industry and has seen many changes during the past years, many of which have not helped dealerships to recruit staff in the most effective way. The business of recruitment is specialised and we believe we are best placed to assist.

Edward is based in Warwick.
