"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 (Less than a year)
I started my career as a Recruitment Consultant at Robert Walters more than a decade ago. I decided to join Robert Walters because their profesionalism, infrastructure and support for someone coming into the industry with no recruitment experience but most importantly for their training and development.
Robert Walters offered me a career not just a job and the opportunity to work overseas if I was interested.
I started my career as a consultant in Australia and moved my way up to Director level. After several years in our Sydney office I had the opportunity to move to San Francisco to start a new discipline within the business.
Lot's of people ask me why I have stayed with Robert Walters for so many years and my response has been always the same. What makes Robert Walters different to other businesses is their people!
The San Francisco market works very different than the rest of the world and the way that Robert Walters operate globally its very different than this market however there has been a lot of changes so the business is operating with the market standards.
Advice to Management
To continue listening to the employees and take the feedback onboard
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Robert Walters (New York, NY).
The whole process lasted around 2-3 hours. Spoke to the head of the internship program and 3 managing directors. Extremely in-depth behavioral/situational questions, you need to show you did your research on the company and the field of recruitment consulting (they will keep probing you until you give a well supported answer)
Tiring, but enjoyable. Everyone was friendly/easy to talk to
