Testimonials

  • Paul Beaumont – Group Finance Director

    Simplicity is how I would describe working with Axon Moore.  Other than a detailed conversation about requirements, my consultant self-managed the whole process, providing a contained service from start to finish and only submitting a small number of applicants who fitted the bill.  Many thanks for making recruitment of a new Financial Controller a very painless process.

  • Jon Clayton, CEO

    We used Axon Moore to recruit a CFO for a £50million hi-tech fast growing market leader, as we found them to have the strongest network of contacts in the North-West that they could leverage. This was the first time we had used a head hunter and they more than lived up to their reputation. They proposed a highly qualified short list of candidates, assisted in negotiations, selling the roles, and taking up references. They genuinely seem to personally know all the FDs in the North-West.
