Axiom Executive provide a professional and robust search service for mid to senior level finance appointments. Archimedes Pharma have engaged their services on two occasions and both were filled promptly and efficiently. The Axiom team are professionals.  They have really taken the time to listen to our requirements, thereby making the process easy.

Shrikesh Shah, Finance Director, Archimedes

I've held the responsibility for recruiting several high-calibre subcontractors for business-critical roles in CSC over the past few years and have found that, (in comparison to other recruitment agencies we have used), Axiom has consistently provided a selection of candidates meeting our key requirements, some of whom have subsequently been converted to permanent staff.  
Due to this, we have ensured that Axiom are now on our list of 'approved suppliers' with AMS (our primary resourcing provider)
and know that when we receive candidate details from them,
they will be worthy of serious consideration. A lot of the
above good work (and good working relationship) is down
to Sema Dalkilic, who has provided a consistently high
level of engagement and strives to ensure that she really
understands what we are looking for in a candidate, beyond the job specification/role description provided. I look forward to continuing to work with both Sema and Axiom in the future.

Nick Curtin, Business Accounting Lead, CSC


Having recruited a number of time through Axiom I have always been pleasantly surprised by the high quality of the CVs presented and indeed of the candidates recruited as a result. There is either a very good talent at matching CVS to the individuals/roles or a very high base line of candidates – or both. Sema has always been prompt, professional and proactive in all dealings. I would recommend Axiom (and wouldn’t have replied to this e-mail in most other agencies cases!)

Nigel Hare, Head of Finance (Thermal Power), Centrica

Overall the quality of candidates both for interview and taken on across the past year has been very good from Axiom. I found the responsiveness & understanding to our specific requirements very good, and recognised our internal tight deadlines; this helped our project success.

Richard Kendall, Finance Programme Manager, Finance Transformation Programme, Sony Europe

I have been extremely satisfied with the service received from Axiom particularly Sema. I have felt that they have listened carefully to my requirements and this has led quickly to a provision of CVs of vetted candidates that “fit the bill” and led to a more efficient selection process. 

I have also worked with the company as a candidate and I felt they were the one of the standout agencies who actually took time out to give advice coupled with excellent knowledge of the market, business sector and companies that I was targeting. The accessibility to speak to someone was also unmatched with any other agency I used. It was this experience that led me to use them in my new role as I knew I would get a reliable, quality service.

I am pleased to have this opportunity to recommend Axiom Executive to you based on my experience of working with their Director and Senior Consultant over the past year or so.  As an independent business consultant and interim manager, I work closely with many of the country’s leading recruitment practices both as a candidate needing to ensure access to the best career opportunities and as a client when projects include the need to source additional staff or interim support.

In October 2010, Axiom secured an assignment for me at one of the world’s largest and best known electronics businesses where I had the pleasure of working alongside a number of other interim contractors they had provided for a complex and extensive project. My experience of working with Sema Dalkilic, Axiom’s Senior Consultant, both in initially securing the role and throughout the subsequent day to day contractor/client/supplier relationship could only be described as excellent. It is rare to find an interim resource provider who can maintain the same energy and enthusiasm for making sure everything works well for both client and candidate after the contract is underway as all will do to secure the placement. That exceptional quality of service was apparent not only in regular update calls but also in all aspects of contract administration from simple, practical documentation to probably the best, most reliable, payment processing I have encountered in my career to date (ultimately one of the most important things for any interim contractor). The other Axiom interim contractors that I worked with were all very well matched to the roles they were undertaking and I recognise this as a sign of a recruitment supplier who can really understand a client’s requirements and a candidate’s abilities and fit the two together well. I have subsequently sought Axiom’s assistance for the provision of candidates on behalf of another client and been similarly impressed by their quality of pre-selection and matching to the needs of the roles, not just the “tick-list” of a job description.

All of the above gives me no hesitation in highly recommending Axiom to both potential clients and candidates. I am very much looking forward to the next opportunity I have to work with them or engage them as a supplier.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you require any further information.

Jim Whitworth, Project Manager, Sony UK

I am currently working with Axiom to provide consulting services to one of their many clients. 

Sema and the rest of the team that I met during my registration were quite personable and I felt comfortable and hopeful that they would find me a suitable role. 

I have worked alongside two other consultants placed by Sema in my present role and they were both committed to and delivered to the client within their respective roles. This says a lot for the agency as they fulfil both the client and contract consultant needs. This has been a challenging project and I have witnessed other consultants from larger agencies give up or not have their contracts renewed whilst the Axiom consultants soldiered on.

Sema especially understood my requirements, recognised my potential and I am glad that she put me forward for my present position wherein I was successful and able to excel and got extended to deliver more services to the client. I have been working with this client for nearly a year now.

Axiom lends a more personal experience to the recruiting process as opposed to bigger agencies that appear to be more interested in their margins. 

I will definitely work with Axiom again and trust them to find me another suitable position.

Arlette Fenton, Financial Accountant Sony UK

I find Sema together with the Axiom administrative personnel to be very personable, and professional in their manner and service.  I have been very satisfied with my dealings with Axiom, and particularly pleased that Sema has helped me secure a well suited role. I am happy to recommend Sema and Axiom to both clients and candidates. At my consultation meeting, I was impressed with Sema's thorough and engaging interviewing approach, and ability to build rapport.  This gave me confidence that Sema was able to gain good insight to my skills and experience, and an appreciation of myself as a individual.  From this meeting, I felt confident that Sema was well placed to identify suitable opportunities.  I found Sema easy to speak and deal with during the search period, and reaffirmed my confidence that Sema fully appreciated the types opportunities which would be suitable for me. This was confirmed when Sema helped me secure a well matched role.

Paul Hill,  Finance Manager, Archimedes

'Axiom placed me at my previous job. Throughout the process I found them to be honest and caring. I was contacted for updates on how the job was going and I also received assistance and advice with regards to my redundancy. I found them great to work with and always willing to go the extra mile....‘
