"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 32 years the company has grown and so have our ambitions. We now have offices across 28 countries and employ over 3,700 people. It’s a powerful success story.
We also have a specialist recruitment outsourcing business, called Resource Solutions, and Walters People - a temporary recruitment company operating in Europe.
Companies and organisations rely on us to find high quality professionals for a range of roles in accountancy and finance, banking and financial services, legal, human resources, information technology, marketing, sales, secretarial and business support, and tax and treasury. 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.
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.
We like to think we’re different. Here’s why:
But we don’t look backwards - we are always innovating. Here are some examples:
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 jobseeker."
At Robert Walters we like to do things differently. This starts with our non-commission model which is key to our team-based ethos. Commission based environments can encourage people to look out for themselves, whereas at Robert Walters, whilst an individual’s contribution is critical, everyone gets rewarded as a team - it’s at the heart of our business.

I have been working at Robert Walters full-time (More than 8 years)
I work as part of the management team at Robert Walters and have been in the business 9 years this year. Having started as a junior consultant working within the front office, with hard work and commitment, I was promoted to manager of my team and then the wider division. Consequently 7 years later, another opportunity presented itself to oversee a back office function broadening my career, proving this business rewards and recognises hard work and dedication.

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Robert Walters (Manchester, England) in April 2017.
First interview was with associate director of the branch and a principal consultant in the area I would be working in. Spoke a lot about myself both on and off the CV; interests, hobbies, core competencies etc.
They also went into detail about RW as an organization and as a branch in the north west. Answered all questions I had in great detail
Second interview was a presentation piece - still really enjoyable
The whole process was great. I got a great feel of the company and the people who worked there
