I joined the company in August in 2019, however I can honestly say I feel like I have been here many more years and feel right at home! When I initially spoke to Axcis about their vacancy, one of the reasons I was so interested in the role was not only because it was an area of recruitment that I had previous experience in but also because of their interview process and how thorough they were in ensuring that not only was I the right candidate for them but also that it was the right role for me. I felt I was given accurate and detailed information surrounding the company and also what they set out to achieve in both their short and long terms goals. Further to this, once I had started working with the company I completed a full week of training surrounding their systems so that I had a strong understanding of how to make best use of their equipment and also that I felt 100% confident in being able to work to the best of my ability.

 

Being given the appropriate training at the start of my career with Axcis has definitely been partly responsible for the success I have had so far with the company. Although I came in as a Senior Recruitment Consultant I think it is important for business’ to acknowledge the importance of providing the correct training so that staff are able to build their career on strong foundations to enable future success.

 

As I have built my desk, the company have also been extremely welcoming and open to any new ideas I have suggested which has not only made me feel like a valued member of the team but also meant I have been able to grow as a consultant. I cannot fault Axcis as they have been nothing but supportive since I started here and their ethical approach to both clients and staff members has not gone missed. I look forward to continuing with my work here at Axcis Education and seeing what the future holds!

I have been at Axcis since 2017 and it was the best decision I made. Prior to joining Axcis, I always thought I would not go into recruitment especially after working for cut throat sales companies. However, once I went for an interview and found out more I can honestly say that Axcis is great company that really make you feel like part of a family as appose to just a number. I had no recruitment experience before joining Axcis and I really benefited from all the training and support that was offered to me.  After a year of being here and working hard I was promoted to a Senior Consultant and could really see that the hard work I put in was appreciated and valued. Axcis really look after their staff and reward hard work. I can’t wait to continue growing my career here at Axcis!

I joined Axcis in 2017 and have never looked back. I had previously work in Engineering recruitment and had no experience in the Education industry at all. Axcis supported me every step when I joined. All these years later and I still absolutely love working within SEND education.

I worked for a large corporate education agency for 13 years and always swore I would never work for another agency, it was always a case of  ‘the grass isn’t greener on the other side!’ However, I was growing increasingly unhappy in my role and heard about an opportunity at Axcis so decided to make the leap. It was, without a doubt, the best decision I made! I’ve been here since 2015 and have progressed from account manager to branch manager to training and HR manager and now Associate Director.

 

So, what do I love about working for this brilliant company? I could mention the excellent bonus scheme, that when they say candidates are as important as clients they actually mean it, the reduced working hours during school holidays, the training and coaching available, the annual company party, the fact that Axcis, in a sea of competition, actually has a genuine USP  (we are the only special needs education agency out there and are offering something that no other agencies are) but one of the main reasons would have to be the people and the supportive senior management team. Many people within the company have worked here for 10 years or longer and are supportive, approachable and passionate about providing a great service. SMT set realistic and achievable margin and KPI targets and are not afraid to  pick up the phone to join in on sales hour or go out on visits with consultants (is there anything worse than a manager who thinks they can do your job yet haven’t made a sales call in months?!) Our partnership work with NAS and our training and seminars that we regularly run for our clients and candidates give you so many reasons to call your schools and recruit the best candidates.

 

Having worked in education recruitment since about 2003, I can honestly say that I’ve never been happier!’

Tessa

My name is Tessa and I have been with Axcis since July 2013. I started off as a graduate recruitment consultant and was quickly promoted after a year. My role started to change in where I was given more responsibility every time I was promoted which has landed me in the position I am in today – as one of the Team Leaders at Axcis Education.  I currently run a small team of 2 and couldn’t be happier. I made it clear to my managers from the beginning that eventually I would like to manage a small team and with, hard work, training and coaching, we made it happen!  I can honestly say I am happy working for Axcis Education and if I wasn’t I wouldn’t be here!
