Newcastle recruiters exceeding expectations in Dallas


Oct 5, 2017 #Business

After opening up a new office in Dallas, Texas back in June, Frank Recruitment Group is now looking to increase its sales team in order to meet demand for their services.

Launching in June, the Dallas office has noticed demand for Amazon Web Services (AWS), Azure Cloud Technology and Marketing Automation rise by over 150% – and is continuing to grow.

Frank Recruitment Group is now ready to drive the next planned phase of growth, having embedded the existing 35 staff members hired in June and establishing themselves in the market.

To meet the need for cloud-based technology recruitment, the Newcastle-based agency will be introducing their latest brand – FRG Technology Consulting – to Texas. They are looking to recruit up to 45 Trainee Recruitment Consultants and Recruitment Consultants to work on FRG Technology Consulting and their long-established Microsoft recruitment brand, Nigel Frank International.

“This is the next phase of our delivery plan,” said Executive Vice President, Paul Briggs, who heads up the Dallas office. “Texas is a very exciting area for technology startups and industry stalwarts alike.”

In fact, tech giants such as Apple, Amazon, Facebook, Google and Microsoft have all opened new locations in Texas in recent years, a move which has led to the Lone Star State being named as the no.1 state in the nation for technology exports.

“Dallas is attracting some of the best and brightest tech innovators and thinkers,” continues Briggs. “Lower taxes, smart regulations, right-to-work laws and pro-growth economic policies are allowing enterprises to thrive, which is why we’re seeing more and more workers and companies flock to the area. With a highly skilled workforce, and more jobs than ever before, it’s an exciting time for job seekers.”

Caroline Fox, Global Head of Internal Recruitment, commented: “All of our recruitment consultants receive industry-leading training through our Frank University training course. We offer all of our employees clear career progression and equip them with all of the resources they need to flourish and succeed.”

The recruitment firm aims to recruit approximately 300 employees over the coming years.

Founded 11 years ago in Newcastle upon Tyne, Frank Recruitment Group has since developed a unique service model seeing its business split into six core brands, each one focusing on a specific service or technology, such as Salesforce, Microsoft Dynamics, NetSuite, and AWS.

Bolstering the team at Ross Tower further underpins their ambition. In April, they were named by the Financial Times as one of Europe’s fastest-growing companies and also received recognition as one of the UK’s top 100 private companies with the fastest-growing profits. In July, they opened a new office in Newcastle at St Nicholas Building. Frank Recruitment Group is supported by TPG Growth, the middle market and growth equity platform of alternative asset firm TPG, which invested in the company in 2016.
