Orton Search & Selection About Adrian Orton

About Adrian Orton

Orton Search & Selection is headed by Adrian Orton.  Formerly an Independent Financial Adviser, Adrian worked for over seven years for leading independent search and selection firms, specialising in intermediary distribution at mid to senior level across niche financial services sectors.

He has successfully placed candidates in many of the UK’s leading financial institutions including Life, Pension & Insurance providers, Asset and Wealth Managers, and Advisory Firms, as well as Wrap, Platform and Fund Supermarkets.

Adrian also has wide experience of recruiting into the Middle and Far East regions.  Having lived in the Middle East for a number of years, he maintains his links by visiting frequently to keep up-to-date with industry contacts and local knowledge in the financial services sector there.  His understanding of what it’s like to be an expatriate makes him ideally placed to successfully manage search and selection assignments into these regions.

Adrian is committed to changing the prevailing negative perceptions of the ‘recruitment’ industry.  He believes that the key to successful ‘executive search and selection’ is all about the person – not simply searching databases and forwarding CVs.

He understands the importance of thorough research and only ever deals with candidates he has met and interviewed himself.

His specialist experience allows him to work with his clients, not just for them, to become a trusted and reliable part of their team.

Adrian is also a keen golfer and previously caddied for 5 consecutive years at Qatar Masters European Tour event in Doha between 2004-2008
