Meet the Management Team

Martin Dineen

Founder & Director

With a decade of recruitment and management experience gained working in senior roles in Australia and the UK & Ireland, Martin identified a niche in the market for a specialist Office Support recruitment consultancy that provides a high level of service while treating such business critical positions with the respect they deserve- managed by a senior and experienced recruiter with an extensive network, commercially mature understanding of the industry and ability to provide consultative counsel.

Throughout Martin’s career, relationships have been at the forefront of his approach with clients, candidates and colleagues alike. He strives to create a truly enjoyable office environment as he sees the importance of people enjoying their work. In turn, this ensures that clients can have confidence in a long standing and stable team of consultants. Engaging an agency, leaving a position or starting a job search, can be a daunting experience. Martin strives to ensure that MJD Executive¹s service will make that transition as seamless as possible, even enjoyable!
