Client Testimonials

Alex is a rare breed within the recruiting community. She is a great listener and takes the time to fully understand the need before presenting candidates. She’s proven patient and a great partner in helping find that person that’s the right fit. Our firm is very selective and most recruiters tire quickly. Alex has placed several successful professionals at our company and she is my first contact whenever we have administrative needs.

Lindsay Evans, risk advisory firm, London/USA


I first met Alex in 1999 and have used Alex for recruiting administrative personnel in the private equity industry for over 10 years. During this time, Alex has demonstrated a high degree of expertise and knowledge of both the company’s needs, culture and requirements and the recruitment market. She has an amazing black book having worked with some of the top PA’s in London and offers a more individual bespoke level of service than large agencies. Alex is extremely enthusiastic and her style is very open and collaborative. I would certainly recommend her for any recruitment needs.

Cassandra Harrison, Grove International Partners


Having worked with AKL Search in the past, I have found them to be incredibly professional and knowledgeable. I have worked with AKL from both client and candidate side and they are focussed on obtaining the right fit for the role and the company rather than just having the desire to fill the position. I would happily work with them again from either perspective.

AKL Search is a unique company focusing on the needs of the 21st Century Executive with permanent and virtual staff. We have successfully recruited senior personnel through Alex at AKL who deliver all it says on the tin and the ongoing support that AKL Search offers is the best in the recruitment business in our experience. To this end we recommend AKL to all our Portfolio Companies and to our Financial Services start-ups.
