Alex has over 25 years of recruitment experience. Her passion for her craft began when she recruited for a high profile family hiring for their support staff needs across their UK properties. Alex later moved back to London where she was hired as part of the pre-opening team for a high profile City club. Following that success, she joined two well-known boutique secretarial firms recruiting PA’s and administrative staff for high profile companies in the City and West End before setting up AKL Search in 2007.
AKL Search began recruiting for a number of families and leading businesses in need of high level PA’s and Executive Assistants for their private houses and companies. AKL Search extended its remit to include PA/EA roles within investment banks, hedge funds, auction houses and luxury jewellery firms becoming the go-to firm for bespoke search services across a wide range of sectors.
AKL Search provides a highly professional service, at the heart of which, is a proven ability to source and match the ideal candidate for every role. Whether a Private PA working for the CEO of a global investment bank or a junior secretary in a small I.T firm AKL offers a tailor-made, discreet and detailed approach that will guarantee success for clients and candidates alike. AKL Search has access to high calibre PA’s not only through the search process but as a result of candidates who have subsequently become clients and therefore experienced the AKL approach from both sides.
In addition to providing a personalised and bespoke service AKL Search offers a highly competitive fee structure fixed at 20% for every permanent assignment, an unrivalled service with a fee unmatched by any competitor. The firm offers meetings and interviews outside of the typical 9-5 working day to accommodate client and candidate schedules, allowing for discretion during the selection process. In addition AKL Search offers a full ten week refund guarantee on every PA or secretarial assignment it places, something Alex is proud to say has never been used to date.
If you are looking for a discreet, professional and knowledgeable search firm that offers a highly competitive fee with a full refund, peace of mind during the selection process and a success rate second to none, then look no further.
