I have now been using ESI services by Stuart Mullins for almost close to four years now. During that time, Stuart has been instrumental in getting likeminded candidates for our various posts and organizations. His strength is that he listens to the brief very well, and articulates this to the potential candidates so there is clarity and synergies from the start. Stuart is readily always available to speak (even when he is in the hospital!) and he has a wealth of knowledge and information that makes him a great sounding board as well for potential structure changes and macro level planning. Over these years he has grown to become a friend rather than a recruiter.

I have used Stuart’s company ESI to achieve successful placements over the past 10 years. This has been across a range of properties in both Australia and internationally, and often featuring vacancies that had previously been difficult to fill.

One of the standout advantages of working with Stuart is his access to a unique variety of experienced, interesting and high quality candidates.

This ensures he is able to put forward suitable candidates for almost any mid to senior management role in almost any location.  He has demonstrated a highly personal approach to properly understanding our business and his industry knowledge and insights mean we get the best outcome, first time.
