The leading recruitment group recorded a 17% rise in gross profits to £88.5m for the first three months of 2018.
Robert Walters has started the year on a high after seeing gross profits rise by 17% to £88.5m during the first quarter.
The company’s growth has been underpinned by continued expansion in Europe with its European arm expanding by nearly a third during the period.
Operations in Germany, Spain and Holland all grew by more than 35%, underpinning a 32% rise in net fee income to £24.2m across the Bloc.
The UK also showed resilience in the face of Brexit uncertainty – up 6% to £25.2m– with Manchester, Milton Keynes and St Albans branded “standout performers” for recruitment activity.
However, it marked a slowdown in growth compared with the final quarter of 2017 when net fee income pushed 13% higher to £26.2m.
Chief executive Robert Walters said: "The group delivered a strong performance in the first quarter with net fee income increasing 17% year-on-year and growing across all regions. Current trading is in line with market expectations."
The group will publish its next trading update for the three months ending 30 June 2018 on 10 July 2018.
