Robert Walters has been named International Recruitment Company of the Year 2017. Recruitment International recognises outstanding international achievement in recruitment, with nominees assessed on the way they have accelerated their international offering, the achievements that make them stand out, as well as being a pioneer in the industry.
Judges formed their decisions based on the size, performance, sector and specialist characteristics that are unique to each business.
Managing Director ANZ, James Nicholson comments:
“We’re delighted to receive this award, especially in the face of strong competition from PageGroup, NES Group and SThree. It’s a credit to the hard work our team have put in over the last 12 months drawing upon our global presence, local strength and international network bolstered by our International Career Management programme.
Robert Walters ‘global presence, local strength’ key to success
Our global presence has enabled our local business to provide excellent service to clients and candidates who transcends geographical boundaries, and this has been a fundamental part of our success across our nine offices in ANZ.
In 2016, New Zealand went from strength-to-strength and produced a record performance. 2017 also promises to be a particularly exciting year for New Zealand with our global sponsorship of the British & Irish Lions touring there in June and July, while Australia keeps its track record of delivering strong customer satisfaction results.
