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 think the best thing about working at Whitehall is the people, we all get along and I have made some really good friends.

    Ross Waugh, Managing Consultant UK SAP Contract Team
  • 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!
