Starting the year with career progression

Only three months into 2019 and we already have a few awards under our belts! We ranked in the International Track 200 by HSBC (top 200 privately owned UK businesses with the fastest-growing international sales), and in the 100 Best Companies to Work with 3 stars “Extraordinary”, placing as the 5th top employer in the East of England. Individual career development and progression is also booming – in the first quarter of the year, five of our recruiters have already hit their targets contributing to Whitehall’s success and earning themselves a promotion!

Charlie Calderbank – Promoted to Team Leader

Charlie joined the Contracts Accounts Team after completing her degree in Criminology and Sociology and choosing to start a career in recruitment. She is a hardworking individual with a lot of drive and passion to succeed – she was promoted to Senior Accounts Consultant in 2016 and now to Team Lead in 2019. In her spare time, Charlie enjoys snowboarding, watching the Formula 1 and Moto GP and spending time with her friends and family.
