Co-founder of Advance Global Recruitment wins accolade at WeDo Scotland Awards
The 31-year-old set up Advance Global Recruitment with business partner Cameron Taylor in March 2011, formally working together at a local recruitment agency before launching their own company which specialises in the international energy market.
Services include supplying personnel on both a contract and permanent basis to the ROV, survey, inspection and drilling sectors across the Globe.
Starting out in a tiny office with just himself and partner Cameron running the show, the Leith based company now employs a team of 15 in Edinburgh and 3 in Dubai with an American branch due to open in early 2015.
In less than 4 years the company has grown rapidly and is heading to turnover £9.4m by year end.
Stuart said: “I am absolutely delighted with the way the business has performed we have enjoyed rapid growth and firmly believe we have the vision and strategy in place for this to continue.”
WeDO is one of Scotland’s most exclusive support and collaboration organisations for high achieving entrepreneurs with an ethos of sharing knowledge, ideas and experiences while helping to facilitate business growth.
