I’m the call that changes a life

I'm Robert Walters

My first encounter with Robert Walters was as a job-seeking candidate, and the team I engaged with then left a lasting impression. They were personable, sincere and genuinely interested in getting to know me and helping me succeed with my job search.

By the end of that process, I was so impressed that I began wondering: what if I made recruitment the next step of my career? How would it feel to make a difference in someone’s life? I knew, even then, that with its global presence and stellar reputation, Robert Walters would be an amazing place for someone looking to start their career in recruitment.

In 2022, I decided to follow my heart, and I’ve been a part of the Robert Walters family ever since. Enough time has passed that I can say with full confidence that it is one of the best decisions I’ve made.

We spend lots of time talking to our clients, who are among the top Human Resources executives in the industry. These conversations are a time for us to learn from them, understand what they need and how we can best support them. Sitting in those meetings, it often dawns on me just how profound this work is. As recruiters, we have a direct hand in shaping the future for many industries.

The potential impact of this work goes beyond corporate growth. Individuals benefit too. I love opening doors for the talented candidates I encounter, and to root for them in the same way that I received support during my job search.

When a candidate expresses their gratitude for my efforts or appreciates how I’ve stayed by their side throughout the hiring process, the sense of fulfilment surpasses any other work-related achievement.

While recruitment can be fast-paced and demanding, ultimately, it is about uplifting individuals and empowering them to reach their full potential. The opportunity of being a catalyst for positive change in many lives is what keeps me going, and if that resonates with you, then Robert Walters would be a great environment for you to live out that purpose.
