Macias provides the gold standard in the modern specialist search & placement era. 

Highly specialised search capability across accounting, corporate finance & investment banking, and commercial/decision support. Our typical placements are qualified specialists, middle management, and senior management across all industry sectors. 

Providing both permanent and temporary engagements, we offer straight forward, no-nonsense, director-led search execution. A high-touch service with unrelenting commitment leads to more successful appointments and repeat clients. We create value by matching beyond skills and experience, focusing on culture fit, specific problem solving relevant to your individual situation, and importantly, being a trusted advisor to all parties to ensure a genuine match that yields the intended result. Our clients enjoy competitive advantage in the market - unparalleled access to the top talent through a trusted recruitment advisor​.


Best of Both Worlds


More than just the famous guacamole, you'll enjoy the service and recruitment expertise level of executive search, whilst working on a contingent success-based fee model. Forget up-front retainers, shortlisting fees, co-branded advertising costs, waiting weeks for a shortlist, and work at the speed of the market. We back ourselves to deliver, or you don't pay.  






More than just making placements, many of our matches have resulted in 1, 2, 3, and even 4 promotions of those placed as they have thrived in their new organisation. 


Forming real relationships has also enabled multiple placements for contractors in different organisations. 


We take a long term view and hope to grow with you.


The Gold Standard in Recruitment means referrals. 


Our clients have recommended us to their networks yielding more exclusive opportunities with new companies. 


Our candidates have recommended us to their networks giving us a steady flow of new talent to place. 


Ask about our referral bonus program which can go to an individual or charity of your choosing.


The best thank you we receive is additional business.


Over the past 6 years, 97% of clients have utilised our services again, and 91% of our placements were still going strong after 1 year. 


Our reputation is the gold standard for the recruitment industry: we match the right people to the right opportunity in the right way. Win-win-win. You can never have too many gold medals!

Eric launched Macias Consulting in 2019 after establishing himself in the Australian market over the last 10 years between Brisbane and Perth. Having been trained by and earned top performer awards in ASX, NYSE, NSDQ, and private recruitment companies over the past 13 years it was time to open his own firm. 

Eric is as passionate about recruitment as he is about people. His desire to help others has been the hallmark of his career. He'll walk a mile in your shoes before providing advice and understands there is no such thing as a 'perfect candidate' (nor a perfect company, job, or even recruiter). You can expect a straight forward discussion, real advice, and professional feedback.  Eric practices the new golden rule - treat others how THEY want to be treated.


Prior to his recruitment career he gained valuable experience in retail banking, investment banking advisory, hospitality management, and even fast food. From humble beginnings as a 'burrito ambassador' for Chipotle Mexican Grill, he's leveraged his experience to be a well respected recruitment director. It would seem the only thing he was good at earlier in his career was getting new jobs, now he gets others jobs for a living - perfect!  


When not recruiting 24/7, Eric is a father of 3 mostly-wonderful children, one very fast tenterfield terrier, and is supported by an incredible wife. Eric is a California native, but is known to most of Perth's business community as the 'Guac Guy' as he makes a batch of handmade guacamole (secret family recipe) commemorating each placement. If avocado isn't your thing, he also makes a mean margarita. Eric dreams of the day he'll once again be a scratch golfer and is an overly keen AFL - Gold Coast Suns supporter. 


Having trouble pronouncing the surname, it's Mah-See-Ess.  Helping you already!

Each year Macias Consulting chooses a charity to partner with.  For 2020, we are partnering with the Cancer Council via The Longest Day Fundraiser (14 December 2020) to support their efforts in preventing cancer, provide innovative work in cancer research, prevention and support.  


Cancer Council was chosen specifically, as Eric’s father, George and his dear friend Courtney both lost their battles to cancer in 2020.  The longest day challenge is a full day on the golf course, playing 72 holes over 12+ hours and is your opportunity to sponsor our team to raise funds for Cancer Council’s services.  


Eric has teamed up with a corporate client this year with a goal of raising $10,000, with Macias Consulting contributing $2,500 to the cause.  We hope you will join us in the fundraising efforts.  If you donate $100 or more, Eric will generously donate his time to provide you CV, Interview and Market Advice, in a one-on-one session (valued up to $1,200).
