Robert Walters launches Canadian office in Toronto

Robert Walters, a global recruitment consultancy headquartered in London, UK, has opened its first office in Toronto.

The office marks the company’s entry into 26 international markets, including offices in New York and San Francisco. Specialising in recruiting accountancy and finance professionals, the Toronto office will be headed up by Martin Fox, a native of Toronto who has gained over 10 years’ experience with Robert Walters filling roles in the UK, Ireland and Dubai.

“I’ve helped clients in the UK, Ireland and the Middle East source outstanding accounting professionals across a range of recruitment projects, from a single finance professional to building a new team in a new location,” commented Martin Fox, Managing Director of Robert Walters Canada.

“I understand how important it is to find the right finance and accounting professionals for your business. I appreciate the global talent challenges and opportunities facing accounting and finance employers today and have over a decade of experience delivering recruitment strategies and solutions.”

The opening of the Robert Walters Toronto office marks the second new country the business has entered in 2016, following an office in the Philippines having been set up in July.

“Canada represents an exciting opportunity for the business. With Toronto’s status as a global hub for the financial services industry we are excited to help candidates find their ideal roles,” added Robert Walters, CEO.

“We are committed to growing the company organically, ensuring that the standards of service, integrity and professionalism that we have cultivated are present in all of our international offices.”

“That is why our new international offices are headed up by experienced Robert Walters staff who can transfer the company culture to these new locations and in turn pass them on to new staff who are recruited from the local market.”
