    Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. I appreciate that your review is generally positive, but I’m obviously concerned about some of the cons you raised. We’ve been working hard over the past few years to improve work/life balance, and have invested in building a first-rate benefits offer, like the introduction of of our flexible benefits programme, Choices. If you’d like, I’d be happy to set up a confidential conversation so that I can get a few more details from you—you can email me at sam.walters@robertwalters.com to set something up. Thanks, Sam Walters Director, Robert Walters London

    Thank you for your review. I was disappointed to read your comments, and I especially regret that you felt there was no training for new staff — the quality of our training is something we are known for, so I would appreciate arranging a confidential conversation so that I can discuss your experience in a bit more detail. If you’d like, you can email me at chris.poole@robertwalters.com to do so. Thanks, Chris Poole Managing Director, Robert Walters Manchester

    I have been working at Robert Walters full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great company to work for. The culture is very collaborative and everyone works really well together. Excellent training and perks including the opportunity to visit a European city for training as well as experience what it is like to work in another one of our offices around the world! I have been in recruitment for a long time, but RW genuinely care and look after all staff.

    Cons

    I have been working at Robert Walters full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Robert Walters is a fantastic company to start your recruitment career or even join further down the line. Many people in the business are ex industry and for junior joiners there is so much opportunity to learn. Robert Walters offers an autonomous environment and the ability to quickly climb the ladder if you prove successful. You have the brand to enable you to effectively get in front of new clients and build a business as well as the support of management.

    Cons

    At first it will feel like you are working a long day and the hours can be tiresome but it absolutely flies by and you need the time to get things done. We work very hard but also get the opportunity to meet a range of people, eat at restaurants you wouldn't normally choose and have many sporting events.
