Whitehall Careers - How do recruitment consultants make money

Whitehall Resources Listed in the Recruiter Fast 50

Whitehall Resources has really stood out in an economy where interest rates and inflation are on the rise. This tech-focused recruitment company is proud to be number 21 on the ‘Recruiter Fast 50’ list for 2023.

What’s the Recruiter Fast 50?

The Recruiter Fast 50, put together by Clearwater International, is all about recognising the fastest-growing, privately-owned recruitment companies in the UK. The ranking is based on revenue growth over the last three years.

This year, companies on the Fast 50 list averaged a growth rate of 31%, the highest it’s been since 2020 and a jump from last year’s 26%. Even in a tough economy, Whitehall Resources managed a growth rate of 27.3%.

Thriving in a Challenging Economy

This is a big deal, especially considering the challenges faced by UK and global businesses in the current market. Whitehall’s growth shows how committed we are to being the best in tech recruitment, even when there are a lot of jobs to fill and not enough skilled workers to fill them.

Hard Work Pays Off

Whitehall Resources’ success shows that we know how to handle a difficult and constantly changing economy. Our solid infrastructure and our flexible, quick-thinking team have helped us stay strong in challenging times.

The team at Whitehall Resources was really thankful to receive this recognition. It’s a sign of their hard work, never-give-up attitude, and the trust our clients and partners have in us.
