I feel that I have the ability to grow with Whitehall. They’re supportive of my development and open to ideas and suggestion. I believe with my knowledge of my market, and if I continue to consistently deliver, that there are no restrictions on how far I can go in the business. I think a lot of people get hung up on the basic salary even though the earning potential is great. You can earn as much as you can in London, here in Colchester without the season ticket.

  • I really like my team at Whitehall. Everyone is really close and we get along and laugh together. If you are having a bad day they know how to make you feel better and to make you smile. You know everybody in your team has your back and you can talk to everyone about everything, which I think it is quite unique and hard to find.

  • Working in an international market can be challenging, however when you have the capability and experience the process becomes far more easier. Whitehall offer fantastic incentives, which create fantastic opportunities for yourself. A collaboration with some of best recruiters around also reflects positively on my work.

  • 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.
