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.

Our organic growth has helped us to better serve clients and candidates while preserving our unique culture and high service levels, as well as offer exciting international career paths for our people.
We drive our geographic expansion by strengthening existing areas of expertise, as well as launching new disciplines. Our focus on niche skill sets and high-quality service has been a major key to our success.
The long-term success of the Group is driven by good corporate governance, ensuring transparency in our decision-making and accountability to our shareholders, clients, candidates and employees.
