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.

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.

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.
