Meet the founder
Hamilton Recruitment is managed by Thomas Burton, a Chartered Accountant who trained with the Big Four in England before moving in the mid-1990s to join Deloitte’s Bermuda office.
Thomas continued in public practice before moving into risk management and, at the turn of the millennium, co-founding Hamilton Recruitment.
Originally located in Bermuda, Hamilton Recruitment is now based in London and recruits for the Cayman Islands, the British Virgin Islands, the Channel Islands and other offshore jurisdictions.
Beyond career advice for Financial Services & Legal professionals, we know that moving to a new country can be a big decision and we’ll play our part in making sure you are aware of other considerations and in a position to make an informed choice.
Our longstanding and extensive contacts across the Islands means that by using our service you’ll benefit from specialist insider advice, designed to give you the best chance of success.
