We launched with a simple mission: to become the experts in recruitment for niche and emerging technology markets. Over a decade later, we have offices on four continents, nine specialist brands, and almost 2,000 experts dedicated to finding the very best talent.


What is recruitment?

Recruitment is a $450b industry and one of the fastest growing sectors in the world. It’s a skilled sales role requiring: clear and persuasive communications, relationship building to connect clients with skilled jobseekers, and tenacity to overcome obstacles and get results. On top of a base salary, you can earn commission on every deal you make.

Why you should join us

IT recruitment is one of the most lucrative markets to work in, with ever-increasing salaries and more jobs than there are candidates resulting in huge demand for skilled technology professionals.

We offer:

  • A generous and uncapped commission structure
  • Full training provided through our Go Beyond Development Pathway
  • A culture that directly rewards top performers
  • Benefits and incentives that you won’t get at any other recruiter
  • Access to the latest tools to make sure you have every opportunity for success

 

Earning Potential

Uncapped commission

We offer one of the most generous uncapped commission structures in the industry. Like in all sales and recruitment roles, the more deals you close, the more you earn. It’s a simple concept and we pride ourselves on offering one of the most competitive packages out there.

We want you to succeed

We give you all of the training and tools, from trainee to executive, to ensure that you are as successful as possible in your career with us.

Annual Compensation

The world of recruitment can be challenging and time-consuming, but successful recruiters in niche industries can earn anywhere from $100,00–150,000 before making the move into senior positions.

Meeting our target of two deals a month would yield $100,000 per year, with many of our consultants earning far more.

Why Niche IT recruitment?

Niche IT recruiters typically earn more than generalist recruiters because they need a significantly greater knowledge of technology, products and markets. This means our consultants earn higher margins on every candidate they place.

We also don’t set high hurdle expectations, so our consultants earn commission from every candidate they place.

Why work for us?

In addition to our competitive base salaries and excellent commission structure, we offer some of the best incentives in the industry, from gourmet dining to jet-setting weekend getaways.

Weekend getaways

We take great pride in cultivating a fun, motivating and supportive work environment and one of the most popular ways we do this is through our incentivized weekend getaways.

Consultants who have exceeded their targets have enjoyed weekends away at destinations such as South Africa, Iceland, The United Kingdom and the U.S. These no-expense-spared trips offer a taste of the high life and are a fantastic reward to recognize our consultants’ hard work and dedication.

Gourmet dining

Our Lunch Clubs are a great opportunity to dine at top restaurants in the cities our offices are located in. It’s our way of saying thanks to those who have worked hard and pushed that little bit extra to close deals. Accompanied by a Director, our lunch club attendees enjoy an all-expense-paid afternoon to celebrate their success.

Perks of the job

Our employees can now get access to a range of big brand discounts and premium rewards including reduced gym memberships and free coffees.

Will you be on one of our weekend trips or enjoying gourmet dining experiences? Apply for one of our recruitment consultant roles around the world and it could be you!

DIVERSITY MATTERS

 

A healthy and happy Frank Recruitment Group

Making sure our staff are physically and mentally well is a top priority. This is why have introduced well-being Wednesdays, our summer hours early finishes on Fridays, a range of free exercise classes, running clubs and activities, as well as incredible discounts on a range of gyms and sports clubs around the world.

 

Equipping communities with the tools to succeed

Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is important for any company; it measures our impact on society as we strive to make a positive impact around the world and lets all of our customers know the value we place on ethics. For us, delivering on our social goals is important to sustaining our success as a leading global recruiter. But most of all, it’s the right thing to do. 

Our core values that drive us forward are accountability, opportunity, inclusivity, expertise, entrepreneurialism, and tenacity. That’s why in 2019, we’ve decided to make St Martin’s School in Nairobi, Kenya, our global charity of the year. All of our fundraising and charitable efforts throughout the year will go towards supporting this incredible educational endeavor.

Located in Kibagare, one of the poorest slums in Nairobi, the school provides a safe environment where children can play, learn, and receive regular meals, giving them the opportunity to excel.

We recruit in markets that involve niche technologies, and we’re aware that they are candidate-short markets with plenty of financial opportunities for those with the relevant. To ensure these children have the tools they need to develop these skills, we’re committing to raise funds for—and build—Tech Labs in the secondary school at St Martin’s.

We will also be offering pupils resume workshops and 1-2-1 coaching and will be organizing several volunteering trips to help with the maintenance of the school and to set up any hardware.

“We’re grateful for Frank Recruitment Group’s involvement and support, and we believe they have the ideas and insights to help us achieve our objectives. Together we can and will achieve our goals to transform this community.”

Alfred Aswan, Program Liaison, St Martin’s School

    I have been working at Frank Recruitment Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This is truly an exciting, vibrant and great company to work for. The atmosphere is one of the best I have ever worked at and it really allows me to succeed and reach my full potential.

    FRG also understands that its employees are not automatons that they expect to be fully experienced recruitment experts they can abuse. I found it quite hard to adjust to the work hours to begin with in the first couple of weeks but my managers were understanding as they saw the potential in me and knew I wanted to succeed, we spoke over the problems I was having and helped me overcome them. Other companies would have just booted me out but not FRG!

    Finally the two week boot-camp is very interactive and knowledgeable that teaches you all that you need to know so they don't discriminate against people with lack of Sales experience.

    In short, join this Company!!

    P.S. The after work drinks on a Friday in Monument is the best way to wind down!!!

    Cons

    The hours are long but that's what you need to put in if you want to succeed and your fellow workers are in the same boat to you so you slug it out together.

    Pay can be low compared to other Recruitment companies but the facilities and market knowledge this company has gives you a far better chance to make commission.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great support and knowledge you gives us new recruits!! Its really appreciated.
