In addition to our competitive base salaries, benefits and excellent commission structure, we offer some of the best incentives in the industry - from gourmet dining at five-star restaurants, to international weekend getaways.

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.

TOP RESTAURANT GOURMET DINING

Fine dining and fun with colleagues - our Lunch Clubs are offered monthly at top restaurants in the cities our offices are located. Lunch Clubs are our way of saying thanks to those who worked hard and pushed that little bit harder to close extra deals. Each Lunch Club employee enjoys an all-expense-paid afternoon to celebrate their success.

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. The program provides our employees with the skills and tools needed to succeed during their first three months with us.

    I have been working at Frank Recruitment Group full-time

    Pros

    The various FRG brands are leaders in the niche IT recruitment markets they operate in so whichever team you're in you have access to the huge candidate database and ready-made clients. The company's brand, advertising spend and big presence at tech conferences helps massively when building your market.

    The offices in Newcastle are great. They moved into the new office in Summer 17 and they are huge, have big breakout areas, kitchens, free fruit and they're really central. They've just taken another two floors so there's now around 300 people in the Newcastle office.

    The company puts on free sports activities on Monday and Wednesday evenings (football, netball, yoga, running club, boxing etc).

    FRG has a very defined culture; it's a sales environment where everyone is expected to work hard and contribute. There's lots of targets and this certainly isn't for everyone, but if you're ambitious and want to progress your sales / recruitment career quickly, I don't believe there's anywhere like it in Newcastle. Consultants who hit their targets progress to Senior Consultant within 12-18 months, and you can be in a leadership position within three years. 99% of the management team started as trainees and have progressed through the ranks by working hard and hitting their targets.

    There's loads of incentives so if you hit your targets you're rewarded really well. There's individual rewards as well as team and office incentives. Everyone is invited to the monthly First Thursday event, and the top 20 consultants every month are invited to Lunch Club where you enjoy fine dining on a Friday afternoon at one of the cities best restaurants.

    In 2017 FRG took on 15 Placement Students from local universities. They've been a great addition to the Newcastle office and the programme is being repeated in 2018/19.

    The social side is great. Lots of people at FRG have met really good friends here and the team culture is really strong.

    The training is excellent. They have an in-house training team and every week there's training on recruitment process, the CRM system, your tech product, business development & sales etc.

    Overall, FRG is a great company to work for with an excellent culture where everyone has the same opportunity to be successful, progress their career and earn a strong salary.

    Cons

    In recruitment you get out what you put in. At FRG if you give 100% you will get loads back. If you're not looking to join a fast-growing company with high expectations then this isn't the place for you.
