What’s it like to work in international recruitment?

Working in the Whitehall International Division can be rewarding, interesting and exciting.  The experience and knowledge you gain working with international clients and candidates is an invaluable skill, applicable to any industry.

International business

As an international recruiter you get to speak with people across the world and to gain knowledge on how to communicate effectively when doing business internationally. Different cultures often have different levels of social formalities, they often operate at a different pace to what you might be used to, some won’t discuss business if you haven’t enjoyed a dinner together first!

Experience dealing with the biggest and best

As specialist IT recruiter, you get to build a huge network of high-level professionals from the biggest and best-known brands, meaning you’ll get the best industry knowledge first-hand. What specialist skills are companies looking for in Germany? Which technology is in high demand in the Middle East? How are changes in legislation impacting your clients?

Some of the companies we work with include big brand names such as Coca-Cola, McLaren and Heineken. There’s always opportunity for Whitehall to grow – you might be the person that starts our relationship with the brand you love.

Work abroad

Did we mention the travel opportunities? While most days you’ll enjoy working from the comfort of our luxury offices, international recruiters get to travel abroad to meet with their clients and enjoy the opportunity to take a stroll around the city, eat local food and experience a difference culture first hand. Our recruiters from the Middle East teams have been to cities across Saudi Arabia as well as Dubai, and our recruiters from the European teams have recently been to Germany, Poland, Belgium, Sweden, Denmark, the Netherlands and Spain.
