Excel Recruitment was founded in 1998 by current Chief Executive Wendy Jayne-Williams.

It opened with an Adelaide office to provide additional support and services to South Australian employers.

The organisation quickly grew to attract a wide range of employers seeking a full range of quality, professional recruitment services, particularly for permanent and casual employees within office administration, warehousing and production.

As Excel’s reputation spread, the Adelaide office continued to grow and the organisation then expanded interstate, entering the Victorian market by opening a Melbourne office in 2003.

In 2004, Excel opened its second interstate office in Brisbane on Logan Road, Upper Mount Gravatt. A third Excel office was established in Sydney in 2005, situated at Baulkham Hills, Sydney (approximately one hour drive from the airport).

By the end of 2005, Excel Melbourne, Excel Brisbane and Excel Sydney were all firmly established and providing services in labour hire and permanent recruitment in both white and blue collar industries from basic labouring positions to management placements.  

Excel Adelaide, at this point had been trading successfully for 7 years and had built a solid reputation in the recruitment industry, with the Excel brand being strongly recognised by employers and job seekers.
Excel Recruitment had firmly established itself as a national organisation with a solid reputation as an innovative leader within the recruitment industry.

Today, Excel continues to grow with five offices in four states offering services in permanent and casual recruitment, executive recruitment and training services.
