About Us

Elite Executive is a leading executive recruitment and search company specialising in the executive recruitment of permanent, contract and temporary positions across a wide range of industries. Our client base ranges from small-medium size business, local and state government agencies, as well as multi-nationals.

Our approach is flexible and we work closely with our strategic partners, forming alliances with national and international organisations (as required). This ensures that we are able to source top quality candidates.

At Elite Executive, we understand that no two businesses are the same and therefore the same service will not satisfy every client. We take the approach that in order to provide valuable service we must get to know each client’s individual executive and recruitment needs, and tailor our service to meet those needs.

Our vision is to give our clients and candidates exactly what they want. We aim not only to meet their needs but also to exceed their expectations and our growing client and candidate database is evidence of our success.

Elite Executive maintains clients across Australia as well as internationally. As Elite Executive is a licensed consultancy within Australia, we comply with all legislative requirements covering privacy, equal employment and occupational health and safety and have current insurance policies for public liability, professional indemnity and workers compensation.
