Andrew Ladommatos - Founder and Director
I know what it is like to be in a candidate's shoes when considering options. I have worked in recruitment since 2006 and have worked in both traditional contingent international businesses as well as boutique search firms. I know the difference between both and what drives candidates to move.
By talking with me you will gain:
- An overview of the market including trends and news;
- Information on clients, commission schemes and team structures;
- My honest, objective opinion on what I think you should do (this may include remaining in your firm for the time being);
- Advice on how to interview, how to present yourself in a positive light and how to actually be successful.
Most candidates I meet are non-active and not looking. Even if you are very happy where you are and don't expect to move for the next few years, it may be still worth us talking. I will not try to push you into talking to clients if ultimately you don't want to.
Every interview is a two-way process and if the candidate decides after the meeting that they do not wish to proceed with the process, I will not try to push them to continue. I will never try to 'hard close' someone, as ultimately people have to make the right choice for them.
Hi Andrew! I just want to say thank you for introducing me to Aurex! It is a much more mature platform and more specialised; everyone is so welcoming and has already taught me a lot! Thank you so much ☺️

I strongly recommend Andrew to my peers in the sector."

"It's been a pleasure to work with Andrew. His professional and diligent approach enabled us to make two excellent hires in the early stages of our business’ development. He took the time to understand the culture of both our business and the people within it and when he sent a candidate that person was inline with budget and skillset, professionally pre screened and prepared, ensuring no one's time was wasted. Nailed it, thank you and good luck"

Gary Rushton, Director, Oliver James Associates
"I met Andrew after applying to one of his ads online. What I was not aware of when sending him my resume was that he would simply bring a big change in my career search and successfully help me to find the position which I still believe is the best one I could have ever find. Although he was very busy, he was always making me feel like I was his only candidate, providing me extremely professional service and insights on the industry.
Thanks again Andrew!"
