together we make
the difference

Dalton Buck offers both standard contingency recruitment (permanent & contract), as well as executive search services. We partner with a range of companies within the Real Estate & PropTech sectors including blue chip’s, plc’s, small to medium sized enterprises and startups, whose goal is to find ‘impact players’ for their business. We have successfully placed executives, senior level management, mid-junior level management and entry level employees.

We have investment clients which include fund managers, asset managers, private equity firms, investment banks, fund managers, investment managers, service providers, sovereign wealth funds and family offices.

We also work with property developers, real estate consultancies, architects, project management consultancies and property management companies.

PropTech is a big growth area for us – some of our clients include the likes of Zoopla, Hometrack, Re-leased, uSwitch, Expert Agent and Ravensworth.


times are changing

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

Having 15+ years of proven success recruiting across Real Estate and PropTech, 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.

“a tailored solution for all businesses.”

Whatever your business size or budget, we can tailor our search accordingly to suit your needs. If you require a very senior level appointment we would recommend our ‘retained’ services, for standard proptech recruitment it is ‘contingency’ and for temporary / freelance / part time employees we would suggest our ‘temp’ recruitment services.

retained search

Our retained search process will give you access to the broadest possible pool of candidates matching your job criteria. We target competitor companies and investigate organisational structures, proactively identifying the most appropriately skilled individuals. We then professionally approach and qualify them directly, using a proven competency-based interviewing methodology. We are passionate about sourcing candidates who can make a positive impact on our clients businesses.

contingency recruitment

Contingency is the traditional form of recruitment for employers wanting to hire permanent employees. A fee is only due on successful placement of a candidate. We can also assist with fixed term contract (FTC) vacancies.

temp recruitment

Our temp option is reserved for clients who wish to employ candidates on a daily rate, for a certain period of time. Our partner company (who specialise in dealing with timesheets and payment administration), will manage this on our behalf, allowing for a seamless and manageable online process for both client and candidate.

Clients may wish for temporary employees to achieve permanent employment status after the time period has lapsed (this is called temp to perm). We can also assist with part time roles.
