Likewise, if you’re unsure if the person you’re speaking to is genuinely an AXA recruiter or the job you’re applying for is legitimately from AXA, please get in touch and we can check for you. We cannot be held responsible for any interviews conducted without our knowledge and authorisation. If you’re unsure and would like some advice, feel free to get in touch with our recruitment team.
