I would highly recommend Mike Dickson from AXR. Not only did he make sure that the roles I targeted were right for my career goals he made sure I was well informed and prepped for all interactions. He has a very deep knowledge about all aspects of the industry and is well networked at all levels. Hands down he provided the best support I have had and I will turn to him in the future for my recruitment needs.

Dyl Wei

I’d highly recommend the team at AXR! You won’t find a better, more professional team with a significant amount of industry experience & great advice!

Daniela Stapleton

AXR is a highly specialised and professional recruitment agency. I have had the pleasure of working with Mike Dickson over the last 6 months and highly regard and recommend his counsel, experience and networks in the Australian FMCG and Alcoholic Beverages Industry.

Vivian Zurlo

I have always appreciated Mike and the AXR team’s sound professional advice. With significant industry experience and deep level of commitment to client care, as well as candidate support, I would highly recommend Mike and the team for any business critical assignments!

Francis Fobi

Mike and team are the best FMCG recruitment agency I’ve ever dealt with. I’ve dealt with multiple recruitment agencies which often make you feel like just a number. AXR are collaborative, responsive and realistic. Most importantly, they are personable and really take the time to understand their clients needs( both the employer and candidates).

Marcell Acs

I worked with Mike as a candidate for an exciting role at a tier 1 firm and just wanted to thank him for all his help. His feedback really helped me craft my career story and his guidance throughout the recruitment process was invaluable. Without Mike’s help, I would not have been as successful.

Mike has a deep network and industry knowledge. Also, he is just a good bloke and I felt he was genuinely passionate about helping my career! I definitely recommend talented candidates looking for the right role at leading companies reach out to him.
