Stelle International Pty Ltd is a Perth-based private company. Established in June 1999, we have long-term relationships with many corporate clients.

We are specialists in search and recruitment for executives and professionals – particularly in upper management in the agribusiness, biotechnology and natural resources sectors.

We recruit across the corporate spectrum - at all levels from Board Member and Chief Executive Officer to Management in Corporate Services, Finance, Marketing/Sales, Business Development, Research and Technical.

Our clients are provided quality and value, rather than volume.

The principals of Stelle International are business specialists. We have in-depth knowledge of the Australian and international agriculture, biotechnology and natural resource sectors, both private and public. We have been involved in all areas of these sectors - including R&D, production, marketing, finance, policy, human resources and executive management. Stelle International is, therefore, intimately familiar with industry requirements. 

We offer a tightly-focused search and recruitment process that helps our clients find the right people for their needs. 

Stelle International’s affiliates in Europe and the USA allow us to source expertise internationally, should this be required - broadening the field of suitable candidates.

We are committed to delivering the highest-quality service, based on the principles of integrity, responsiveness, quality and attention to detail.
