UK staffing firm Frank Recruitment Group has opened a new location in Geneva, Switzerland. The new office is the cloud recruitment company’s eighth in Europe, bringing the total number of global hubs to 21.
Frank Recruitment Group was founded in Newcastle upon Tyne in 2006 with just three members of staff. It now employs almost 2,000 people worldwide and is part of Tenth Revolution Group, the global leader in cloud talent solutions. The Swiss location will add a number of new team members to that headcount, with plans to create up to 50 jobs within five years.
The move will see Frank Recruitment Group further increase its reach in Europe and enable the firm to better support its growing global client base. With the country’s technology market expanding fast, and digitalisation and cloud migration at the top of every Swiss CIO’s agenda, demand for IT professionals to support transformation is mounting.
“Our new Swiss base will allow us to offer better support to our clients and partners in the region, at a time when specialist technology recruitment consulting is more needed than ever,” said director of sales Paul Hanley, who will be leading the new location. “We want to replicate the success we’ve achieved in other global regions here in Switzerland by solidifying our position as the leaders in cloud tech staffing solutions, and continue to enable digital transformation by delivering the best permanent and contract tech talent to businesses that need it.”
“I’m especially proud to be launching our Swiss office,” said Zoë Morris, Frank Recruitment group president. “2020 was a challenging year for the staffing industry, so it feels like a special achievement to be opening a new location and growing our business at this time. We feel very privileged to be able to serve this exciting market and create new jobs in the area in the process.”
At the new location, Frank Recruitment Group will initially launch its Nigel Frank, Mason Frank, and FRG Technology Consulting brands, which recruit for Microsoft, Salesforce, and emerging technology specialists, respectively.
