James Roberts

I cannot speak highly enough of the advice and support Greg O’Shea, Greg McKenzie and team have provided me in my recent career move. In the end, my role was not secured through AXR, but Greg O’Shea was willing to help behind the scenes on my behalf and I am convinced that this got my foot in the door. To me, that’s a sign of a recruitment team that truly cares about the candidate experience and about fostering genuine relationships. I look forward to staying connected with AXR and working together in the future.

Hugh Sinclair

The best in the business. I have had experience as both a candidate and a client and Greg and Rick are always professional, insightful and diligent. I highly recommend.

Areba Tahir

I can not speak highly enough of Rick Jacobson from AXR. He was very supportive throughout the entire recruitment process. He made sure I was well informed and prepped for all my interviews. Rick is very well connected and understands the industry so was able guide me into a role that was right for me. I highly recommend Rick to future candidates and employers.

Carey Michelle

I highly recommend AXR and the two Greg’s. They are easy to work with, highly professional with great career advice and provide very insightful feedback. They care about not only the right professional fit but cultural fit too and are well connected in Sydney. I love also that they provide the CFO Incubator program and are giving back to the Sydney Finance community.

Mark Wratten

Great team. Experienced, down to earth.

Vargi Thillainathan

AXR have strong links into business across Sydney and build strong relationships with candidates.

Eden Skyring

I have known the “Gregs’ for around 20 years and they have been my go to for recruitment needs and professional career advice. They have always provided insightful and honest advice and have market coverage equal of anyone else in the industry.

Caspar Deman

The consultants at AXR provided extensive and insightful feedback on both my CV and my overall approach to finding a new role. Would recommend to anyone either looking for a role or hiring

Imran Khan

Worked closely with Callum to secure a role in August. It was an absolute pleasure working with him and he clearly articulated the ins & outs of the role and company. Great experience and will definitely work with Callum & AXR in the future.

Alex O'Neill

Cannot speak highly enough of Callum and the team. They have placed me in two successive roles, always mindful of my strengths and capabilities and placing me in roles that are a good fit.
