Axiom connects with the right staff

Two years ago, more than half of Axiom’s business was automotive. Today, the company no longer supplies the auto industry, but is continuing to grow and hire more staff.

Axiom’s General Manager Craig Maynard said they used the Drive Your Future Job Connect service to fill their maintenance technician job vacancy.

“It’s all about attitude for us. Working in a small company it can be high pressure and fast moving, so attitude is so important,” Craig said.

“For other jobs we’ve advertised, we’ve received up to 500 applications. The amount of time it takes to go through that is huge.

“To begin with, we were skeptical about using a recruitment service. But when I spoke to Tony at Job Connect I could tell he was thinking about our best interests.

“Tony is enthusiastic about getting the right people and it doesn’t feel like he is just doing his job.

“He sent through Brian Weste’s resume and we got him in for an interview.

“Brian’s experience and personality was a good fit for what we were after, so we hired him and he started within a few days.”

Former auto supply chain worker Brian said the process of using Job Connect was very simple and the support he gained was fantastic.

“I am now employed at Axiom as a maintenance technician, so the outcome of using Job Connect couldn’t have been better,” Brian said.

“I hope to be at Axiom for a long time, as I really enjoy the work here.

“It’s nice to be part of a vibrant, progressive company that produces high-tech components.”

Craig said as Axiom continues to grow they will need to take on more skilled tradespeople and production workers.

“I would not hesitate to use Job Connect again, thanks to the positive experience we had with the service.”
