Frank Recruitment Group Accelerates Growth with the Opening of New Offices in Dallas (US) and Newcastle upon Tyne (UK)


Jun 6, 2017

This week, the UK-based Frank Recruitment Group opened two new global-focused offices in Dallas, Texas and Newcastle upon Tyne, UK in an expansion that highlights the company’s 10 year success, and rapid growth over the past two years.

The niche technology recruitment specialists plan on hiring over 700 professionals between the two offices: 400 in the Newcastle upon Tyne office by August 2017, and 150 in the Dallas office by the end of 2018.

The new Dallas office, housed in the recently refurbished Ross Tower downtown, will primarily focus on Frank Recruitment Group’s signature brand, Nigel Frank International, a recognized global leader in Microsoft technology recruitment.

Dallas has garnered media attention in recent years and is widely regarded as one of the best tech cities in which to work in the United States, with a low median real estate purchase price and one of the United States highest job growth rates at (4.1%), according to Forbes.

Frank Recruitment Group was founded in 2006 in Newcastle upon Tyne.  The new state of the art office, which opened this week, sits opposite the historic Newcastle Castle and is a short walk away from Central Station. The St. Nicholas office is the new home to our growing sales teams, while the widely recognizable office on the front of popular Collingwood Street will remain the home to our support teams.

“Entering Dallas, while expanding our presence in Newcastle upon Tyne is exciting for us,” said James Lloyd Townshend, CEO of the Frank Recruitment Group. “We are focused on growing our business while enabling our employees’ success and motivation through exceptional office facilities, top-level training, fast-track career progression, and ongoing professional development. The new offices further cement Frank Recruitment Group’s international presence as we grow our business in Dallas, and allows us to continue to grow our business in Newcastle upon Tyne, where our business first began over 10 years ago.”

The opening of the Dallas and Newcastle offices builds on a period of significant momentum for Frank Recruitment Group. In April of this year, Frank Recruitment Group was named one of Europe’s fastest-growing companies by the Financial Times and was also recognized as one of the UK’s top 100 private companies with the fastest-growing profits over the last three years. In 2016, TPG Growth, the middle market and growth equity fund of alternative asset firm TPG, invested in the company.

Since 2016, Frank Recruitment Group has invested significantly, seeing global employee headcount grow from 254 in 2013 to over 1,400 today, opening new offices not only in Newcastle upon Tyne and Dallas but in Berlin and Philadelphia as well. In the same timeframe Frank Recruitment Group also launched two new brands: NetSuite specialists Anderson Frank and Java specialists Pearson Frank, bringing the group’s niche IT technology recruitment brand to six.
