We've come a long way

Established in 2008, Lincoln Recruitment has long been an industry leader in talent selection in the Irish market. In the early years, the founder, Shay Dalton, realised that a firm could only ever be as good as the people it hired to serve its clients. If you can’t attract exceptional people for yourself, how can you successfully do it for anyone else?

With that in mind the vision was to create a recruitment business, that housed the best market-leading consultants across a wide variety of industries and functions including – Accounting & Finance, Financial Services, Legal, Risk & Compliance, Information Technology, Consulting & Advisory, Engineering & Operations and Marketing & Digital, under one name. Lincoln Recruitment was subsequently set up in the belief that quality would win over quantity every time, and that providing exceptional service to our clients and candidates would yield long-term success.

Today Lincoln Recruitment Specialists is truly the fruition of this foresight. When recruiting our own employees, we apply the exact same standards we use to identify and attract outstanding talent for our clients. Relentlessly hard-working, smart, expert and committed to mutual success, Lincoln Recruitment will help you stand out from the crowd.
