After being with Whitehall Resources for a few weeks I wondered why I never chased this opportunity earlier on in life. I joined the International team which I absolutely love being a part of, there’s a real team spirit with everyone driving to be the best they can be but at the same time supporting and inspiring everyone around; this spirit flows throughout the whole company.
Working on the international team has massive perks, like going to client meetings abroad. In the last 12 months I have been to Hungary, Prague, Barcelona and Madrid. Lunch Club and the trips to Portugal are awesome!
One of the key things about Whitehall is that if you want something, you are able to make it happen. If you aspire to progress, the management team supports you and sets realistic targets to make it happen.
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
