together we make
the difference

Dalton Buck partners with blue chip companies, small to medium sized businesses and startups, whose goal is to find ‘impact players’ for their organisation. We have successfully placed executives, senior level management, mid-junior level management and entry level employees across a vast range of industry sectors.

Some businesses will see it as most prudent to partner up with recruitment agencies who specialise solely within their industry. These agencies will profess that their sector knowledge and large database make them the most suitable prospect to work with. More often than not, businesses start to feel let down, as these agencies may not live up to their original expectation. Businesses then feel the need to take on multiple recruitment agencies, expanding their PSL and creating more work for their busy management / HR department.


times are changing

Times are however changing, and as the world becomes more technologically savvy and connected, the recruitment process too is evolving.

Having proven success recruiting across multiple sectors, Dalton Buck believes that the onus of a good recruitment company is having the ability to source candidates ‘intelligently’.

We like to stay ahead of the game by using the latest Boolean search capabilities, implementing professional headhunting techniques, having access to the latest tech platforms for candidate information tracking (which you cannot do from the traditional social media sites); and having several generalist job board platforms at our disposal.

In short, our aim is to cast the net as wide as possible, to find a selection of ‘top tier’ candidates, that best match the search criteria provided by our clients.

Listening and understanding is also a key part of recruitment, as well as asking ‘the right questions’ – which allows us to search most effectively on your behalf. We target ‘active’ as well as ‘passive’ candidates (who aren’t necessarily looking for a job) and we only submit candidates who are qualified, fully-motivated and bought into the job opportunity and company.

Over the years, our clients have appreciated this well-rounded approach (see testimonials), as we are thorough, can provide highly suitable candidates across all departments (at all levels), and we can work within a short timeframe.

  • Dalton Buck are our number one recruitment partner. George has successfully filled a great many vacancies over the years, which has allowed us to grow. He provides a highly professional service, understands our business completely, and always sends us suitable candidates within our designated timeframe. I would highly recommend their service.

  • Dalton Buck worked with us on our search for a new CEO for our US operation. George provided us with an excellent shortlist of suitably qualified candidates, all of whom hit the mark. They also conducted personality profiling on our preferred options in a very professional manner.

  • I have dealt with George on a regular basis for a number of years, both from a role as a Company seeking Staff and as Vice Chair of the RICS in the UAE. On both levels he has proved to be efficient, cooperative and timely in all issues that we were involved in. I would not hesitate to recomend George to anyone seeking new employment or seeking to recruit new professional staff.

  • George understands the local market, the demanding need of developers and this has enabled him to offer the right candidates with realistic salary expectations.

  • As HSE Manager for ADNOC, I asked George to find HSE Staff for a multi- million dollar offshore project with a vey tight remit. Within days George had provided several CVs of the type and quality I required and I hired three people immediately. George's experience and understanding of the tight remit, coupled with the skills of a private detective, enabled him to select the right people for the job and reduce the search time dramatically! I will certainly use George again and I have no hesitation in recommending him for any future challenges.
