About Recruitment

Paton Personnel was founded in 1996 by Allison and Ross Paton on the premise that a specialist agency with deeper technical knowledge in 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 complement and depth of management. Paton Personnel is also the owner of Nomad Now, the online marketplace for rapid and cost effective hiring of all flexi and perm professional staff. Nomad Now is an industry-changer for sourcing and securing skilled talent in South Africa.
