We pride ourselves on our success. For the past three years we’ve received the highest rating from Best Companies and rank highly in the Sunday Times Best 100 Companies to Work For.

Why you’ll love working at Whitehall
To be the biggest and best recruiter globally, in the markets we deliver to.
We are an international company with great reputation across the UK, Europe and the Middle East. We are a trusted partner for our strong network of candidates we’ve built over many years and for our clients that include big names like Microsoft, Heineken and Coca-Cola.
Friendly team members from all backgrounds: hospitality, retail, sales, graduates, experienced recruiters and more. Our international team speaks 12 languages altogether, there is always something to talk about!
After an initial three-day boot camp to learn the basics, you’ll receive ongoing mentoring from your team leader and the L&D team to help you develop your skills in sales, business management, leadership, and on anything and everything you need to become an outstanding recruitment consultant.
Your professional development
You progress and get promoted as you hit your individual targets at your own pace, working towards your personal career path, whether you would like to be a Managing Consultant or the team Manager. The personal development never stops.
Our commission structure
You truly get rewarded for your efforts, meaning the more you put in, the more you get out of it. We have one of the most generous commission structures in the industry. Don’t believe us? Call us and you’ll see.
Monthly and quarterly incentives that go from bottles of fizz and gift cards to days out to local restaurants, spas, London venues and even to our villa in Portugal. We also celebrate our company achievements together when winning awards and breaking team and company records!
Location, location, location
Not only will you work in a brand new open-plan office with great rest areas such as the games room and our 1950’s themed canteen, you’ll also be based in the Colchester Business Park (no commute to London!) or in the business area in Frankfurt or Dubai.
And… because we care.
Our values – honesty, passion, integrity, expert – aren’t just words, we truly live these values. We care about our people and their wellbeing, about our clients, candidates and our community.
We have available job roles for senior and new recruitment consultants. Previous experience in recruitment is not required for our entry level and trainee vacancies, we are looking for people who are passionate about their job and thrive on being successful. If this sounds like you, get in touch!
Our best recruiters come from banking, sales, retail, estate agencies, administration, children's education, leisure, IT, sports, automotive sales, insurance, call centres, university, the armed forces, hospitality, healthcare, customer services, college, entertainment

What you’ll be doing
Your new Graduate Recruitment job will require you to build long lasting client and candidate relationships. With market leading training you will learn how to source new business, arrange interviews, find great candidates and manage the offer process. It will be like building your own small business within our business.
What will I learn?
Just because you have finished Uni doesn’t mean the learning stops there. You will be taught objection handling, questioning techniques, negotiation and influencing. You will also develop your resilience, communication skills, ability to work under pressure and how to manage your time effectively (those assignment deadlines will come in handy here.)
What do I need to be successful for this opportunity?
Personality and personal attributes are more important than experience for this job. We pride ourselves on our diverse workforce and we have very successful Consultants who have joined us from all walks of life.
We work with some of the biggest and best-known companies in the world. We’re recognised by the Sunday Times 100 as the 24th ‘Best Small Company to Work For’ (5th in the East of England) and rated ‘3 stars, extraordinary’ by Best Companies.
