Whitehall named as one of best companies to work for in the UK

We are delighted to announce we have placed 24th in annual Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For. The list is compiled using the results of the Best Companies survey – an anonymous questionnaire that covers eight topics including personal growth, wellbeing, teams, management and more.  We were awarded 3 Stars, meaning we have “extraordinary levels of employee engagement” and a place in the Sunday Times list. That isn’t all, we were also very pleased to see we were the 11th highest recruitment agency.

We are hiring, so if you’re thinking about starting a career in recruitment, here’s some of the things we can offer.

This year, we also ranked already in International Fast Track 200 and in the Recruiter Fast50 which mean our business will keep expanding and our teams will keep progressing.

Generous commissions and great incentives

Our commission scheme is clear and transparent, the more you put in, the better your results, the more you earn. Of our consultants that have worked here longer than a year, 65% earn over £35,000 and 30% earn over £50,000. We have monthly incentives such as Lunch Club, company milestone rewards and the use of our company cars and Portugal villa.

We have a team of training experts to work with you from day one and onwards. You’ll learn about sale strategy, client development, account management, negotiation skills and more.

Work-life balance

Five working days per week (no evenings, no weekends), events like Dogs at Work, a games room and a ping-pong table on site, themed meeting rooms… Have a look around!

Company culture

You’ll be joining fun and friendly teams that are hard-working and competitive. You will always find someone who is up for a chat, for a round of ping-pong or for a good laugh at our annual events such as the summer and Christmas Parties.


Everything we do revolves around our company values. You’ll find these embedded in our learning and development, approach to clients and candidates and in attitudes around the business: Honesty, Integrity, Passion, Expert.
