Job Description

Robert Walters
We don’t aim to be the biggest recruitment consultancy but we do aim to be the best. We help businesses build powerful teams that deliver against exceptionally high standards by holding ourselves up to those same values. Quality and integrity are our watchwords and we like to think we’re different. Here’s a flavour of why:
• We have specialist recruitment teams who are experts in their area. Whether they’re recruiting in accountancy, HR or legal, you won’t find them working outside their area of expertise
• Our consultants don’t work on commission, but instead rely on team work to ensure the right person is placed in the right job
• We will never send out your CV without express permission. Quite simply, we don’t think it’s right

We’re proud of what we’ve achieved so far. But we don’t look back, we’re always innovating:
• We were the first recruitment consultancy to launch a recruitment outsourcing business
• The first to launch a Global Salary Survey
• We were the first to launch a salary checker app for iPhone and launched a Manga interview app
