Newcastle is a great place to do business. As well as being renowned for the friendly demeanour and sociable culture of the locals, the city’s business community has an incredibly strong resilience, work ethic, and entrepreneurial spirit.
In addition to having well-connected transportation links, one of the significant benefits of running a business in the North East is the superb pool of talent from the surrounding Universities. Year on year, we gain access to highly qualified candidates, not just for our North East sales team but our supporting services as well.
As one of the largest private firms in the region, we’re proud to have 90% of our global operations running from Newcastle. It has allowed us to invest millions into the local economy by providing a wide range of jobs for the area, including sales, marketing, HR, IT, and our legal team.
We take great pride in our strong connection with the North East, as it is a massive part of our brand history. Ensuring the strength of our Newcastle operation will always be immensely important to us.
Frank Recruitment Group
Frank Recruitment Group was founded in Newcastle upon Tyne, in 2006 with a simple mission: to become the experts in recruitment for niche and emerging technology markets. Since launching, they’ve helped to connect businesses of all sizes with permanent and contract workers; from start-ups in need of a single developer to international enterprise clients building a complete team in a new country.
Thirteen years later, the company has seen international growth with nine brands working out of 19 offices, including Berlin, London, New York, and Melbourne, as well as other locations over four continents across the globe. Although they have achieved global success, the leading recruitment company have kept their first office local to the North East and in the heart of Newcastle’s city centre.
In 2016 Frank Recruitment Group were backed by TPG Growth, one of the world’s leading private equity firms, which counts Airbnb, Survey Monkey, and Spotify amongst its portfolio. Since then, the organisation was named 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.
Over the last two years, Frank Recruitment Group has expanded from 800 to 2,000 employees, providing jobs to local economies across the world, including the North East of England.
In August 2017, the company moved its Newcastle team into a new state-of-the-art office on St Nicholas’ Street, providing an extra 100 jobs for the area. Two years later, the office is almost at full capacity, with over 400 employees working across the Newcastle sales department, as well as the company’s central service team.
