What we do

Robert Walters is a global, specialist professional recruitment consultancy.

"Our story begins in 1985, when our CEO, Robert Walters, opened the first office in Central London. Rob has led the company ever since and has the same passion and commitment today.

Over the last 30 years the business has grown and so has our ambition. We now operate across 25 countries and employ over 2,900 people. It’s a powerful success story built on the strength of our people.

Organizations rely on us to find high quality professionals for a range of specialist roles. Professionals who are looking for a new role, whether it’s on a permanent, interim or contract basis, trust us to find them their ideal job.

I believe that Robert Walters is something special. But I and others in the company never forget that the most important person to us is you – whether you’re a hiring manager or a job seeker."

Giles Daubeney, Deputy CEO, Robert Walters

Our strategy

The Group’s strategy for growth is centered on international expansion and discipline diversification.

But we haven’t grown by snapping up our rivals, we’ve done it by making sure we deliver on our promises. And that’s meant more companies and professionals want to work with us. Quality and integrity are our watchwords.

Our growth is largely organic, with the Group only making 3 market-entry acquisitions in its 30 year history. Driving growth through further specializing in our existing recruitment disciplines and the launching of new specialist teams means we're helping more and more job seekers and organisations across the world.

Why we're different

  1. We're specialists
    We have specialist teams who are experts in their area. Whether they're recruiting in accountancy or the legal sector, you won’t find them working in areas outside their field of expertise.
  2. Team-based culture 
    We don’t operate on a commission basis, instead we offer team-based profit share - ensuring candidates have access to a range of companies so the right person is placed in the right job. 
  3. We act with integrity
    If you register with us, we will never send out your CV without your permission. Quite simply, we don’t think it’s right. And we don’t push people to accept a role just to make a fee. 
  4. Thought-leaders
    Throughout the year we produce regular market reports and research on key recruitment and job market trends. Our annual Global Salary Survey and bonus surveys serve as crucial decision-making tools for clients and our Jobs Indices track job advertising volumes, offering key insights into the job market.
  5. Industry innovators
    We were the first to launch a Global Salary Survey, a 500 page guide to salaries, the first to launch a recruitment outsourcing business, and the first to launch a Salary Checker app, downloaded 250,00 times. The Group's mobile apps have been downloaded in excess of 150,000 times in the last two years.
  6. Award-winning
    Best Recruitment Innovation 2015, Best Recruitment Company in China 2015, Grand Winner HR Asia Recruitment Awards 2015 and Best Marketing Team 2014 are just some of our recent achievements. We're pleased to say we've been consistently singled out for our dedication to clients and candidates.
