We care about our staff, our community and wherever possible we get involved in raising money for charities. Here are just a few highlights from recent years.
Colchester Rugby Club
We have been the main sponsor of the Colchester Rugby Club since 2013. More than 600 juniors take part in the various activities and events at the club each week, we see this as a great investment in the community. Our partnership with CRFC extends into charity, we work together to raise money for St Helenas Hospice through an annual event held at the club, supported by Whitehall.
We are also proud to have a number of CRFC players who have chosen to grow their career with us at Whitehall.
In September 2019 we became the headline sponsors of the Essex Rebels. The Rebels are based at the University of Essex, within a brand new £12m sports arena, consisting of multiple basketball teams – including their academy, men’s team and women’s WBBL professional team.
What makes the relationship between Whitehall and the Rebels so great is that we both share a culture of team work, a passion to succeed and are committed to being the best in our game.”

Ten of our colleagues took up the challenge to walk nine miles in aid of St Helena last Saturday night. There was a great atmosphere with a fantastic group of over 800 people taking part in the fundraising event. [more...]
It is Halloween season, and our Colchester offices have been visited by the most terrifying creatures once again. This year, the beasts of the afterlife have raised money for our chosen charity - St. Helena’s Hospice. [more...]
The best thing about Whitehall is the people — I feel really privileged that I get to work as part of such an enjoyable team. Yes, it can be hard work, but the team are always there to support you, lift you up and to help you succeed. Also, there is nowhere in Colchester that you can earn the sort of money we can!
Whitehall is a really enjoyable place to work, the people here are brilliant and there is always new a challenge every day. It’s a company which is growing from strength to strength and is great to be a part of such a rapidly growing and well-organised company.
I'm surrounded by great people, a unique culture, the drive for excellence and fearless ambition. The knowledge and opportunity Whitehall gives people to unlock their career potential is second to none. The job is mentally challenging but the culture here is fun, genuine and fast-paced.
