Recruitment is a fast-paced, exciting and incredibly rewarding industry. It’s also competitive and you must be prepared to push yourself in a sales environment if you want to reap the rewards.

At Robert Walters, we embrace diversity. Our aim is to create collaborative teams from a wide range of industry backgrounds such as IT, finance, legal, marketing, or sales. Industry hires comprise a large part of our employee base as industry professionals are able to quickly establish rapport with senior clients and candidates, having come from a similar background.

We are currently hiring recruitment consultants across a range of divisions including:

  • Risk, Treasury & Front Office
  • Office Support
  • Accounting & Finance 
  • Compliance
  • Investment Funds & Banking Operations

We hire people with strong sales skills, a resilient approach and the ability to work well in a team. If you’re competitive, entrepreneurial and ready to take on a challenge then we’d love to hear from you.

What Robert Walters can offer you: 

A world of opportunity

Given our status as a leading global business there are naturally a huge number of international career options. What makes us different is that international careers are critical to our strategy for growth so these moves are actively encouraged. By promoting our international mobility programme we encourage successful staff to move around the world, building new businesses and strengthening existing ones. 190 people have moved internationally in the last five years and 10% have moved more than once.

Be your own boss

Having the freedom to make decisions and grow your own part of the business makes for a rewarding career. Entrepreneurialism is crucial to our strategy for growth and we hire people with independent mindsets who can spot opportunities for expanding the business. We’re proud that many of our senior management team have been with us for over 13 years and have grown the business across the globe as they’ve grown their careers.

Best in class training

We’re known for the quality of our training. Our philosophy is to provide continuous professional development and learning opportunities to all staff with the aim of growing our future leaders from within. From the start of your career with us we provide structured training programmes on all aspects of becoming a successful consultant as well as mentoring from senior members of staff, peer learning and specially commissioned video-based learning. Comprehensive induction training covers group values, diversity and the provision of high quality service to clients and candidates.

A team approach

Whilst an individual’s contribution is critical, everyone gets rewarded as a team - it’s at the heart of the business. Our team-based approach starts with giving staff support from the outset through our training and mentoring programmes. A non-commission model is integral to this team-based ethos. We don’t pay individual commission, unlike the majority of our competitors, but instead focus on team based profit share. This is fundamental to our culture and success.

A sense of reward

Helping talented professionals find their ideal role is hugely rewarding. But working with inspiring professionals to find their next role is only part of the picture. There’s outstanding earning potential and benefits on offer. Out of the ordinary salary and bonus opportunities are a reality at Robert Walters. We offer a highly competitive base salary, quarterly bonuses based on team profit share (not individual commission), a contributory pension/superannuation, share save schemes and incentive trips to luxurious destinations for top performers.
