Robert Walters again ranked among Switzerland's best recruiting firms 

April 2021.

Robert Walters has been ranked among the “Best Recruiting Firms in Switzerland in 2021” in a survey conducted on behalf of Handelszeitung and Le Temps. 2021 marks the third year in a row that we have secured a place among the best in the field of Professional Search, despite the health crisis and the new challenges that came with it.

In total, over 6,000 participants were surveyed by the institute Statista in the name of the two newspapers to list the top recruitment consultancies in Switzerland.

Among the participants were:

  • HR managers in companies who have had experience with recruiters or HR service providers.
  • External recruiters, recruitment consultants, headhunters and recruitment service providers.
  • Candidates who have been placed by recruitment firms.

Christian Atkinson, Director of Robert Walters Switzerland: “We are very pleased to have been recognised in this award. The global health crisis has made 2020 a difficult year full of uncertainty for a lot of companies in Switzerland. But this has not prevented us from continuing to support them with their recruitment needs, nor has it stopped us from expanding, moving into larger offices in Geneva and welcoming new consultants into our teams in Geneva and Zurich. The Swiss recruitment market is both demanding and dynamic, so we are delighted that awards like this underline the quality and professionalism of the sector."

Guillaume Blanchin, Director of Robert Walters in Geneva: “This distinction is a further proof of confidence from our clients and candidates. It validates in particular our strong specialisation in interim management (CFO, COO, CIO on assignment as part of transformation projects), financial services (compliance, regulatory, IT core banking system) and accounting/finance (CFO, internal control, tax, treasury, audit). We are pleased to continue our partnerships and look forward to seeing you soon in our new offices in Geneva, where we would be happy to welcome you when it is possible again.”
