Our community

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. This is a great investment in the local community and one we hope to continue for many years!

As a thriving community club we run four senior teams and have around 600 juniors playing rugby every weekend. Colchester Rugby Club endeavours to support our local community and contribute regularly to charities, so it is fantastic to have the support of a company that shares our values.

Nationwide efforts

Sponsored trip to India

We sponsored Colchester Sixth Form College student Arabella Watkins, who spent three weeks volunteering in Southern India with the support of the Russ Foundation. While there, she helped teach adults and children English at the charity’s schools and took part in fieldwork exercises, digging to improve irrigation and improve crop yield.

I would sincerely like to thank everyone at Whitehall Resources for all of their help, support and encouragement. They have been brilliant from day one and I could not have hoped for a more kind and generous sponsor.

  • The support in developing my career path has been great. I started at the company as a Junior Administrator and progressed to HR Manager and now Executive Assistant. I've been given the freedom and support to share my ideas and implement changes throughout the business.

    Katie Bowers Executive Assistant
  • 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.

    Wesley Plumb UK Permanent Business Manager
  • 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!
