From estate agency to recruitment. Develop your career at Whitehall

If you’ve had experience in an estate agency, a move to recruitment could be the next step in developing your career. Your experience in great customer service, time management, and negotiation will help you in your transition to becoming a recruiter.


We have offices in Colchester, Essex and Frankfurt, Germany – there are plenty of opportunities to get out and about. As recruiters, we frequently travel across the UK to visit clients and candidates. Whether it’s to attend networking events or to present to a potential new client, it’s important for us to build and maintain relationships.

Our international team can often be found jet-setting across Europe and the Middle East, it’s important to not only build relationships but also understand the culture and environment that surround our clients and candidates.

We have quarterly competitions across the business. The winners can choose from a weekend at our villa in Portugal, hotel and theatre trips, hotel and a family trip to UK attraction (safari, Legoland, theme park), a day at the tracks or spa weekends. This quarter, one of the winners was someone who has been here less than a year.

Commission structure

We have a clear and transparent commission structure – there’s no small print, and you can earn from day one. Here are some facts and figures on Whitehall consultants to give you an idea of the opportunities here. These are all based on team members that have worked longer than a year:

  • 64% earned over £35,000
  • 27% earned over £50,000
  • Average earnings are over £44,000
  • Last year, over £780,000 in commissions was paid out last year

This reflects the amazing earning potential as well as the quality training and support that goes into making our teams experts at what they do. A career in recruitment at Whitehall offers the same opportunities as those in the city, minus the commute and expenses.

Nights out and other rewards

Any consultant who exceeds their target is rewarded that month with Lunch Club – a Friday afternoon out the building on the house. We also have paid-for nights out through the year including huge summer and Christmas parties and nights out to celebrate company milestones.
