Smart casual is the order of the day – Smart enough to be professional but casual enough to feel at ease.​ We believe that teams perform at their best without unnecessary formality and we enjoy a relaxed and friendly office environment.

We are proud to operate without unnecessary bureaucracy. Our consultants are encouraged to work autonomously and have the opportunity to influence:

  • Business development
  • Account management
  • Account development
  • Service delivery

We’re an eclectic bunch and come from diverse backgrounds, including:  designers, engineers, sales roles and graduates. Not everybody joins us as an experienced recruitment consultant.

What we all have in common is a strong work ethic, ambition to succeed and a genuine desire to find the very best recruitment solutions for our candidates and clients. The fact that we’re a friendly team with a good sense of humour is the icing on the cake…..and we do like to have a piece of cake (or pizza…..or chocolate) from time to time!

Based both in Altrincham and Preston, we enjoy excellent public transport links and we’re never short of options when we’re looking for a venue for an offsite team meeting.

With regular ad-hoc rewards and incentives, Akton is a progressive employer with a committed team delivering first class services to our candidates and clients.
