Frank Recruitment Group Opens Office in Philadelphia

Global IT recruitment firm to add 250 people to its Philadelphia office

LONDON & PHILADELPHIA--()--Frank Recruitment Group (“FRG”), a leading global staffing and recruiting firm focused exclusively on the enterprise software market, today announced the opening of its Philadelphia office. The company plans to hire 250 people, most of whom will be recent college graduates interested in becoming recruiters. FRG provides robust training and support that prepares new hires to become specialists who recruit and place technology experts in jobs around the world. In April of this year, FRG was acquired by TPG Growth, the middle market buyout and growth equity platform of leading alternative asset firm TPG.

“As the demand for specialized technology experts grows, an efficient, scalable approach to placing them in jobs has the potential to revolutionize the recruiting industry. We look forward to partnering with the team to continue the company’s growth in Philadelphia and beyond.”

With 10 offices spanning Europe, Asia, and the Unites States, FRG employs more than 900 individuals globally. FRG’s industry-leading “FRG University” prepares all new hires for the recruiting market, and the company provides ongoing immersive training and mentorship programs to promote career and talent development. This unique training, along with industry-leading compensation, allows FRG to attract and retain talent and position its clients for success.

“Entering a new market and building a team is exciting for us, as at our core, FRG is a people-centric business,” said James Lloyd Townshend, CEO of FRG. “We are focused on enabling our employees, providing them with top-level training, fast-track career progression, and ongoing professional development. We help young graduates take advantage of the significant—and lucrative—opportunities that are available in the tech recruiting industry. We look forward to bringing our specialized model to a new city.”

FRG has flourished as a result of its focus on the fast-growing technology recruitment market. The firm operates six core brands, each focused on recruiting software professionals that specialize in a different technology product. In 2007, the company launched its original brand, Nigel Frank, which recruits professionals who specialize in Microsoft Dynamics. In addition to Nigel Frank, the company has since added:

  • Mason Frank International, which recruits for Salesforce experts
  • Churchill Frank, which focuses on experts in big data software
  • Anderson Frank, which recruits NetSuite software professionals
  • Pearson Frank, which places talent in Java, Web and PHP jobs
  • Washington Frank, which specializes in staffing opportunities in emerging cloud technologies

“At TPG Growth, we’re focused on identifying disruptive models that can transform industries,” said Shamik Patel, Principal at TPG Growth. “As the demand for specialized technology experts grows, an efficient, scalable approach to placing them in jobs has the potential to revolutionize the recruiting industry. We look forward to partnering with the team to continue the company’s growth in Philadelphia and beyond.”

TPG Growth’s portfolio includes numerous companies that, like FRG, leverage opportunities for disruption, such as Airbnb, e.l.f. cosmetics, ipsy, Spotify, and Uber.

FRG’s Philadelphia office formally opens September 12, 2016. The office has hired 40 individuals to-date and is currently hosting regular recruitment events for its new office. Upcoming recruitment events will occur on August 31st and September 6th at Ten Penn Center (1801 Market Street Philadelphia, PA).
