UK recruitment firm Robert Walters is unifying its three brands, Robert Walters, Walters People, and Resource Solutions, into a single brand, Robert Walters.

Robert Walters said the move comes amid a changing global landscape, that is not only seeing the talent requirements and hiring processes of businesses evolve, but also the needs and expectations of today’s professionals.

“Robert Walters is combining all of its expertise – specialist professional recruitment, recruitment outsourcing and talent advisory – into one business allowing it to more seamlessly offer a full suite of talent solutions to help organisations address their hiring challenges,” the company stated in a press release.

The group will offer three core service lines:

  • Specialist Professional Recruitment: encompassing permanent and temporary recruitment, executive search, and interim management.
  • Recruitment Outsourcing: enabling organisations to transfer all, or part of, their recruitment needs to Robert Walters either through recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) or contingent workforce solutions (CWS).
  • Talent Advisory: supporting the growth of organisations through market intelligence, talent development, and future of work consultancy.

Toby Fowlston, CEO of Robert Walters, said, “In the past few years, organisations’ hiring requirements have become more complex. From managing talent pipelines, while ensuring hiring is inclusive, through to accommodating different modes of employment, our clients want guidance and advice from a single partner across their talent landscape and we have evolved to meet their needs.”

Fowlston added, “In this increasingly complex world, we want to make our clients’ lives easier. By combining our complementary expertise, products and services, specialist professional recruitment, recruitment outsourcing and talent advisory, we offer end-to-end talent solutions across the 31 countries we operate in.”

As part of the brand unification, Robert Walters has introduced a new logo and visual identity which it states “captures the essence of its global reach and expertise in talent solutions”. The company’s digital presence will also be revamped to align with the new visual identity.

“Next year will mark 40 years of Robert Walters, and we are excited to be evolving into a talent solutions business whilst building upon, and continuing to grow, our specialist professional recruitment offering,” the company stated.
