Robert Walters Partnership

Jan 15, 20190 comments

ROBERT WALTERS join The Hairy Handlebars team as a main sponsor.

We are incredibly excited that Robert Walters -the world-leading professional recruitment firm- have come on board as one of our main sponsors for the ride to Tokyo. With a record of ‘left-field’, rugby-related sponsorships to their name, their support of us and our frankly stupid trip fits the bill perfectly. Tokyo also provides a great natural fit between us and Robert Walters as not only is it the location of one of their highest performing offices, but they also sponsor the Japanese rugby team!

As part of the partnership we will be leaving from the Robert Walters office in Covent Garden, London, and finishing at their Tokyo office. Meanwhile on the ride itself we will be joined by some of their employees! Stephen Edwards, Chief Marketing Officer for the Group commented:

“We’re really excited to be supporting the Hairy Handlebars as they embark on this incredible adventure to raise funds for Movember and the Ian Williams Foundation.

The passion, determination and creativity of the Hairy Handlebars in their approach to fundraising reflects much of our company culture when it comes to supporting causes close to the hearts of our people. We are rallying behind Ben and George to help them achieve their fundraising goals for this worthy cause.”


Late in 2018 we sat down with some of the marketing team and discussed the trip and the partnership in more detail. The article can be viewed here on their website:


We would like to thank everyone at Robert Walters who have supported us thus far and for their continued support as we head to Tokyo this year.
