History

In 1998 Excel

Recruitment

was introduced in Adelaide, to be the commercially focused

recruitment

arm of its parent company, Jobs Statewide.

Jobs Statewide Inc (www.jobs-statewide.com.au) was founded by CEO Wendy-Jayne Williams with a philosophy to support job seekers with high barriers to

employment

to find and sustain work. Barriers to employment can include;

  • Indigenous
  • Disability
  • Long term unemployed
  • Youth
  • Race
  • Religion 
  • Skills
  • Education limitations

With Jobs Statewide Inc role in supporting job seekers for many years, the need to complement job seeker services with additional employer services like Excel Recruitment and Excel Training became apparent.

Thus, Excel Recruitment was established with an objective of providing a full range of quality, professional

recruitment

services to business’ and individuals.  The services provided by Excel Recruitment both complemented and supported the objectives of the parent organisation, Jobs Statewide, by engaging employers and offering a total range of

recruitment

services from entry level to executive positions along with the services provided by the parent, Jobs Statewide Inc.

Excel Recruitment clients were very happy with the service and the reputation and size of the Adelaide office quickly grew.  Some of these clients were also operating businesses in states other than South Australia and in 2003, it was time to put the expansion plans into action with the second Excel Recruitment office opening in Melbourne.

Following on from the success in

Adelaide

and

Melbourne

, new offices were also opened in

Brisbane

and

Sydney

. By the end of 2005, Excel Recruitment methodology saw it firmly established as a national organisation that had built a solid reputation as an innovative leader within the recruitment industry.

Today, Excel Recruitment continues to grow, in an environment where other recruitment companies struggle.  Services offered in

Adelaide

,

Brisbane

,

Melbourne

and

Sydney

include permanent

recruitment

services,

labour hire

, temporary placements, and executive recruitment services.

In the early 1990’s Jobs Statewide became a Registered Training Organisation (

RTO

) and initially was accredited to deliver training courses in Office Administration, Retail Sales, Stores and Warehousing.

In 2000 Excel Training was formed to take over the RTO from Jobs Statewide and work in conjunction with Excel Recruitment to provide training services to employers and job candidates.

To this day, Excel Recruitment and Training continue to work together to deliver outstanding solutions to our clients, that not only deliver the right people for the right role, but also go beyond placement to assist with retention plans and development solutions that keep key personnel up-skilled to meet business needs. All this whilst adding significant value to a companies bottom line. What a great combination!
