Last year was a strong year for Whitehall Resources. Many personal, company and team records were broken and we were very pleased with results. It turns out we’ve done slightly better than most – we’re back in the Fast 50!

This a list compiled by Recruiter magazine listing the fastest growing recruitment agencies in the UK. It’s no easy feat to be in the Fast 50 though – the list is compiled from the 28,000 registered recruitment companies in the UK and is hugely competitive. Whilst this is not our first time in the Fast 50, it’s not a list of the same old names, 24 of the top 50 placed in the list for the first time. In our ten years of business, we’ve made this list four times!

Whitehall’s growth comes down to our many successful relationships with clients and candidates. We also have the benefit of operating in the UK – Europe’s largest recruitment market, but there are many challenges we have to work around and be prepared for.

As well as planning for our own future, we’re helping our clients navigate the changing landscape. Brexit is already impacting net migration which is down to its lowest point in three years. Whilst this shrinks the talent pool we simply rely further on candidate relationships we’ve built up over years. Companies moving operations to Europe will see an increase in the number of IT projects on the continent, but as our international team now covers a dozen nationalities, and with our new Frankfurt office, we’re already ahead of the game. 2017 also saw changes to the contract market with the introduction of Off-Payroll Worker Legislation for the Public Sector and this year will see some big changes in the business community with changes in personal data legislation with GDPR.

Through all this, our clients and candidates can be confident that they work with a company that’s listed in the top 0.2% of recruitment agencies in the UK!
