INTERNATIONAL WEEKEND GETAWAYS

At Frank Recruitment Group, we take great pride in creating a fun, motivating and supportive work environment. One of the most popular ways we do this is through our incentivized weekend getaways.

Our consultants who have exceeded their targets and gone above and beyond have experienced weekends travelling to major cities such as London, New York, Miami and Bali! These no-expensed-spared trips offer a taste of the high life and are a great way for our consultants to appreciate and reap the rewards for their hard work and dedication.

Fine dining and fun with colleagues - our Lunch Clubs are offered monthly at top restaurants in the cities our offices are located.

We pride ourselves on providing one of the most competitive packages in the industry, directly linked to our generous and uncapped commission structure, which makes a recruitment career with Frank Recruitment Group very appealing.

UNCAPPED COMMISSION

We offer one of the most generous uncapped commission structures in the recruitment industry. Like all sales and recruitment jobs, this is dependent on how much revenue you generate.

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

ANNUAL COMPENSATION

Securing candidate placements is challenging and time consuming, so successful recruiters can earn anywhere from $100,000-$250,000 before moving into more senior positions.

All of our consultants are targeted on two placement deals per month, yielding $100,000 earnings, with many consultants earning far in excess of this.

NICHE I.T. RECRUITERS EARN MORE

Niche I.T. recruiters typically earn more than generalist recruiters because they require a greater level of technical and market knowledge, which means our consultants earn higher margins on candidate placements.

Successful recruiters are often fast-tracked to management to allow them to scale the skillset they have mastered.

When you join us as a Trainee, we assume that you have no recruitment, sales or technical experience. Our immersive one month ‘Frank University’ course will teach you everything you need to know to become a confident recruitment superhero.

Our new employees spend the first month of their Frank Recruitment Group career at Frank University, which is our intensive training course that sets our new consultants up for success.

    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.
