What inspires us

All employees receive a guaranteed salary plus a quarterly commission pay-out based upon results of the sales in the UK and also those in the region . The commission is payable once 70% of the sales targets have been reached, something we feel is unique as usually businesses need 100% achievement before a pay-out happens which is unique in our industry. Our sales teams all work to a shared target, each individual is paid commission based on the overall performance of the country and region rather than an individual sales target. We believe that this approach helps to drive a open and collaborative culture. Commission is also payable to all positions in company so you do not have to be a sales professional to receive commission. We offer the commission in this way so everyone irrespective of role contributes and feels valued by helping to achieve and be reward in line with our company sales targets . In addition to commission we also reward all employees with an annual corporate bonus which is up to 10 % of basic salary .This is calculated and paid out based on the sales performance globally but again allows for all employees to feel part of our global business and be rewarded for that . 

Additionally we offer the following to all UK employees :

• 5% of total earnings is payable by Axis into a company approved pension scheme , This is all contributed by the company and employees do not need to make personal contributions into the scheme currently, unless of course they wish to
