Robert Walters Australia and New Zealand has been voted International Recruitment Company of the Year at The Recruitment International Awards, ANZ.

The awards were held at the Ivy Ballroom in Sydney on 10 May 2017 and recognise innovation and best practice in the ANZ recruitment industry. 


'Global presence, local strength’ key to success

Robert Walters won the award on the following merits:

  • Global presence, local strength: 2016 saw a record performance in New Zealand and strong net fee income growth in Australia. Our global presence has enabled our local business to provide excellent service to clients and candidates which transcends geographical boundaries. This has been fundamental to the success of our nine offices within ANZ.
  • Global sponsorships: Our global sponsorship of the British & Irish Lions is a key differentiator, as are our wider sponsorships and affiliations.
  • International Career Management: Through our International Career Management (ICM) programme we can fill local skill shortages for clients, via our international network.
  • International mobility: Over 100 members of staff have moved internationally over the last four years and 10% have moved more than once. In 2016, seven people joined the ANZ team from other international offices and two people moved from ANZ to other regions. 

Managing Director ANZ, James Nicholson comments:

“We’re delighted to receive this award, especially in the face of strong competition from Page Group, 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.”
