Robert Walters crowned the Banking & Finance Recruitment Company of the Year 2018


Robert Walters has been named ‘The Banking & Finance Recruitment Company of the Year’ by Recruitment International, the largest recruitment industry awards programme in the Middle East. 

The ‘The Banking & Finance Recruitment Company of the Year’ category was noted to be one of the most keenly contested of the night, with contenders judged on various factors including commercial success, scale, service offering and customer focus.

Over the past year, our business has progressed rapidly. This has been achieved through collaboration across the teams and the skills and culture of our workforce," said Jason Grundy.

The award was won by Robert Walters thanks to its well established strategy in the Middle East that has underpinned growth since its office opened in Dubai in 2008. The Middle East office contributed to the increased net fee income of 108% generated across countries outside the UK, Europe and Asia Pacific.

Jason Grundy, Managing Director of the Middle East for Robert Walters, said the award complements the financial results achieved and is testament to the culture and people in the Middle East office.

"Our success in entering new markets such as Kuwait and Saudi Arabia has positioned Robert Walters as a banking and finance specialist across the Middle East that offers our clients an industry-leading service underpinned by significant local market knowledge," Grundy continued.
