I'm loving every minute
I'm Robert Walters
Before joining Robert Walters in Geneva, where I specialise in Accounting and Finance, I first worked as a stockbroker in France and then switched to business development whilst living and working in China. It was when I was in China that I decided to move into recruitment and started my career at Robert Walters in our Shanghai office.
I joined the Shanghai team at a time when business was booming and as a large multi-national office, everybody was warm and welcoming when I started. The day I signed my contract – which was prior to my first day in the business – I was invited to celebrate the excellent results of my future colleagues, giving me the exciting opportunity to witness and grasp the culture before I had officially joined Robert Walters.
I’ve often found my first impression of a certain open-mindedness is confirmed and embedded so often in so many ways – the Robert Walters culture is particularly open and people oriented. As a business with employees from various backgrounds, the commitment and willingness to share different experiences and successes with each other is what makes Robert Walters so appealing.
Having lived and worked in various countries myself, I love working with our multicultural and vibrant team in Geneva. Meeting top tier-professionals – both clients and candidates – networking, interacting and sharing ideas with colleagues are inherent in our day-to-day. Even though each of us are ambitious and ultimately aim to make successful placements, the working atmosphere is down to earth and extremely supportive.
Another aspect I value about working for Robert Walters is the flexibility – how many companies offer the opportunity to relocate to a new office after only three years?
If you are looking to build a career that is based on both merits and results, this is the place to join! Make sure you bring your knowledge, personal experiences and expect to think outside of the box.
