Powering people and organisations to fulfil their unique potential
Our story began in 1985, when our founder Robert Walters opened the first office in central London determined to build a reputation for being different, innovative and memorable. Since then, we have developed into a global business, and now operate in a diverse range of markets worldwide.
For over 38 years, businesses across the globe have relied on us to find the very best specialist professionals and we are trusted to help build the careers of the world’s leading executives, job move after job move.
It’s a success story we’re proud of and one that’s built on the strength and passion of our people. As the business continues to expand, we operate with the same commitment to service and quality.
Every candidate is treated as an individual with a focus on advising and consulting. It means we continually have the best candidates on the market to offer our clients.

Robert Walters Group
Our mission, purpose and core principles
Since 1985, we’ve been on a mission to be the world’s leading specialist professional recruitment consultancy. To achieve this, we’ve needed to distinguish ourselves both on the quality of service we offer, as well as through a unifying purpose — to power people and organisations to fulfil their unique potential.
We’ve also remained committed to the same core principles that have driven our success from the beginning. These principles of teamwork, integrity, passion, innovation, quality and inclusion ensure our consultants are always putting the needs of candidates and clients first.
Together, our mission, purpose and core principles underpin our working culture around the world. Moreover, they continue to cement our reputation as the recruiter of choice, trusted by the world’s leading organisations and professionals.
The Group’s strategy for growth is centered on international expansion and discipline diversification.
But 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.
Our growth is largely organic, with the Group only making 3 market-entry acquisitions in its 38 year history. Driving growth through further specializing in our existing recruitment disciplines and the launching of new specialist teams means we're helping more and more job seekers and organisations across the world.

Why we're different
- We're specialists
Our consultants are specialists in the fields they recruit for, with strong personal relationships and wide industry networks. That means our candidates can trust our expertise in finding the right role for even the most niche skill sets, and in turn, our clients get the peace of mind that any candidate we put forward will have the right skills for the job.
- People before profit
We’re known for our non-commission model, which means that our consultants don’t receive individual sales commission, instead they’re rewarded on a team profit-share basis. This not only ensures that our clients and candidates come first, but it also promotes a positive working culture where teamwork and collaboration is incentivised.
- Integrity is part of our DNA
When you work with us as a candidate, rest assured that we’ll never send your CV to an employer without your permission. Quite simply, we don’t think it’s right. And we’ll never push you to accept a role just to make a fee — we’re with you for the long term, and want you to make the right choice for your career.
- Trusted insights from the experts
In addition to our regular research on key recruitment and job market trends, our annual Salary Survey is a crucial decision-making tool for clients and candidates worldwide. Meanwhile, our insights tools enable us to advise and guide our clients’ hiring decisions through deeper, data-driven conversations.
- More innovative, more human
We track, test and trial hundreds of new technologies each year to see if they can increase our productivity and give our consultants more time to do what they do best — building human connections and personal relationships. Around the world, our innovations are increasingly helping us streamline candidate searches and become more inclusive, reaching a wider and more diverse talent pool than ever before.
- Recognised around the world
Our purpose drives the high quality of service we deliver around the world, and we’re honoured to be recognised for our commitment to clients and candidates. Recently, we’ve won awards for Excellence in Wellbeing (UK), Best Consumer Brand (South Korea), Top Graduate Employer (Australia), and have been named as industry leaders in France (Les Echos), Germany (FOCUS Magazine), Switzerland (Statista), Japan (TALiNT) and the Middle East (TALiNT).
"POWERING PEOPLE AND ORGANISATIONS TO FULFIL THEIR UNIQUE POTENTIAL"
That's our purpose as a business. But it extends far beyond what we do at the office — we're industry leaders through our efforts to make a positive difference for clients, candidates, colleagues and communities around the globe.
We work with a diverse range of clients around the world. From major multi-national corporations to SMEs and start-ups, they rely on our consultants to source the top talent they need to continue to grow. Our industry knowledge, insights and expertise make us the partner of choice for high-performing organisations around the world.
We're proud to have played a part in the successful careers of thousands of top professionals around the world. And, every candidate we work with is treated as an individual — we advise and consult but we never try to force people into unsuitable roles. For us, helping candidates make the right career moves is key to our long-term success.
Our people stay with Robert Walters because we've worked hard to create an environment where they're fulfilling their own potential while helping clients and candidates fulfil theirs. We're proud that many of our senior management team have been with us since joining as consultants, and now lead some of our largest businesses around the globe.
