About Recruitment

Paton Personnel was founded in 1996 by Allison and Ross Paton. Paton Personnel was founded on the premise that a specialist agency with deeper technical knowledge in the Financial Services recruitment would best serve the needs of hirers and candidates in a manner that broadly generalist agencies were unable. Paton has grown to become an award-winning, leading recruitment company in South Africa and a dominant recruitment provider in the Financial Services sector and far beyond. We are also well regarded for the continuity of our staff and depth of management.
