Begin Your Legacy with Whitehall: Where Ambition Meets Opportunity

We are excited to announce some key transformative changes to our management structure to support our shared goal of increasing our global influence in SAP and IT recruitment.

Ricky Knight: From Senior Consultant to Managing Director in Just 14 Years

Ricky became a part of the Whitehall family in April 2009. Over the years, his impeccable business insights have spearheaded Whitehall’s transformation, supporting our turnover growth from £9.3m to a staggering £93m today.

Quick Glance at Ricky’s Whitehall Journey:

  • 2009: Initiated with 2.5 years of specialist UK Contract recruitment experience.
  • Progressed through roles beginning as a Consultant to Senior Consultant, UK Contracts Manager, UK Business Manager, Head of UK Sales, Sales Director, and finally, as of September 2023, Managing Director.
Ricky Knight - Managing Director

“During my time, I’ve brought my first home (and moved a couple of times since), got a dog, got married and now had my first child. I’ve enjoyed working with people whose life has taken a similar course; watched them grow and develop both as experts in their field, but also as people. We’ve had Whitehall marriages, children and while it’s fair to say the path from 2009 to now certainly hasn’t been linear (with Covid proving to be the most awful/difficult period of them all), I’m immensely proud of the journey I’ve been on personally and professionally, and excited for everything we have planned to continue Whitehall’s incredible development towards being the biggest and best SAP and IT recruiter in the markets we operate.”

Neil Mansfield’s Journey: From International Expertise to Sales Director

Neil has dedicated eight impactful years to Whitehall, showcasing his recruitment prowess and playing a pivotal role in the company’s evolution. From leading the International Team to spearheading the Client Services Management team, Neil’s dynamism is undeniable.

Neil Mansfield - Sales Director

“I joined the Whitehall Resources family almost 8 years ago to the day. 5 years running the International team and the last 3 years working with the Client Services Management team. I’d already worked in recruitment for a few select recruitment companies, but none offered the opportunity for growth I’ve witnessed here. Collectively we’ve witnessed a tremendous series of events in that time with Covid and the post covid boom! I’m fortunate and privileged to work with a fantastic group of managers above and below that really are a work family! With our brand growing furthermore internationally within our existing core markets and new markets to explore it really is a time to be excited for the next step, milestone and global dominance in those chosen markets!

For anyone already here or thinking about a career in Recruitment I can’t think of a better platform to work from! 23 years and counting it’s a great career that has taken me all over the world and afforded me a lifestyle I could only have dreamt of before!”

Tremayne Hall: The Visionary Behind Whitehall, Ascends to CEO

In 2007, Whitehall was a dream that Tremayne Hall brought to life. From its inception, Tremayne’s vision was clear: to create a leading recruitment agency that stands out not just in numbers, but in value, ethics, and impact.

Starting as a solitary endeavor, Tremayne has navigated the business to its global acclaim today. With offices spanning the UK, Germany, and the USA, Whitehall has grown exponentially under his leadership. Today, the company boasts a turnover of £93m, a testament to Tremayne’s relentless drive and innovative strategies.

Moreover, Tremayne’s passion extends beyond business metrics. His vision for Whitehall led to the construction of a state-of-the-art UK office, built on land personally acquired by him. But it’s not just about the infrastructure; Tremayne’s leadership has ushered in 26 industry awards for Whitehall, affirming its quality and dominance in the recruitment sector. With high-profile collaborations, including with SAP UK, Tremayne has ensured Whitehall’s network comprises the crème de la crème of consultants.

“As we transition into this new leadership structure, our primary goal remains unaltered: to offer unparalleled service in the SAP and IT recruitment sectors, fortified by our unmatched industry experience and expertise.

The launch in Great Neck, New York, is a testament to our commitment to global growth and delivering exceptional recruitment services. As we broaden our horizons, the U.S. market offers exciting prospects, and with our track record and expertise in SAP, IT & Data recruitment, we are poised to make a significant mark.”

Join Whitehall’s Vibrant Journey to the Future

At Whitehall, every chapter in our story is infused with ambition, resilience, and innovation – virtues embodied by our esteemed leaders like Tremayne Hall. But while leadership sets the vision, it’s the collective strength of our team that turns this vision into reality.

Our evolution from a humble startup to a global SAP and IT recruitment behemoth was no overnight journey. It was forged through the dedication, hard work, and passion of professionals like Ricky, Neil, and countless others who found their calling at Whitehall.

Having spent a large part of my life at Whitehall, it’s fair to say I have seen the evolution from a successful recruitment firm, to one of the best in each market. Expanding globally, with some serious talent within WHR.

There really is no limit to earnings in the sales division, the more effort you put in, the more rewards you receive. An exceptional CEO/MD makes life very easy, given they have both been a consultant and worked their way up. They understand a recruiter’s struggle and frustration and they are always around to help and guide you.There really is no limit to earnings in the sales division, the more effort you put in, the more rewards you receive.

Cheyenne Wood – CSM Coordinator

I’m approaching 8 years working at Whitehall and with everything in life there are ups and downs. One of the many things and reasons why I love coming to work, being part of a great team and the company overall is that when the ups come along the business and people are there for you to say a ‘well done’ and to celebrate that with you. When the downs arrive as we all know they do, again those people within the business are there but for support, reassurance and genuine care in helping you turn those downs into ups.

I’ve made some genuine and close friendships in my time with Whitehall and I think the company values continue to support this.

Shane Scott – Executive Consultant

Personally, Whitehall have given me the opportunity to travel to several countries for work and reach personal goals quicker. I look forward to what the years ahead have in store.
