The Robert Walters Story
The Robert Walters growth story now spans 27 successful years. Established in 1985 by current CEO, Robert Walters, the business started life in a serviced office above the Café Royal in London.
"Robert Walters plc today has an international network of 53 offices in 24 countries, employs over 2000 staff worldwide and is one of the world's leading and most recognised professional recruitment brands. A far cry from the one man operation of 1985. Originally established to place accountants into corporates across London, we now recruit across a broad range of disciplines including accountancy & finance, HR, IT, law, treasury, legal, banking, sales & marketing, secretarial & support, engineering & operations, general management and supply chain & procurement and a client base ranging from some of the world's leading multinationals and investment banks through to SMEs, local businesses and start ups."
Giles Daubeney, COO.
Throughout our 26 years of growth, the founding principles of the Group have remained the same - to manage the long-term careers of the highest calibre candidates and to build long term and trusted relationships with our clients to help deliver their resourcing objectives. Our non-commission policy enables us to stand apart from our competitors and ensures our consultants are focused on achieving the best fit for candidate and client rather than chasing commission. Our policy of not recruiting for the accountancy profession or magic circle law firms is truly unique and ensures we do not have a conflict of interest when working on behalf of our candidate base.
Our people are the lifeblood of our business and are central to our growth strategy. We are fully committed to growing our leaders for tomorrow from within and are proud that many of our international management team have been with us since joining as graduates and have worked in leadership roles in many of our international locations across the globe.
