About Us

Fram Search is a privately owned specialist financial services recruitment consultancy. Our core business is permanent recruitment, assisting leading firms with a headcount of up to circa 500 in the UK and overseas. In terms of seniority, we focus on the mid-to-senior market. We work with experienced hires right the way through to the marzipan layer, or C-suite of smaller firms. Our aim is to build close and lasting relationships with clients who become repeat customers, and with candidates who we help throughout their career.

Our senior recruiters are very experienced in executive search, with our wider team of financial services recruitment consultants highly trained and able to support clients with contingent recruitment. We have a demonstrable track record of GDPR compliant market mapping, managing team moves, build outs, and managing key individual assignments.

Fram offers both retained executive search and contingent recruitment solutions, both of which utilise our proven headhunting methodology, our deep networks, and established database. We go the extra mile to attract sought after passive talent, as our experience is that candidates are saturated with job adverts online.

We strive to offer best advice to all parties throughout the recruitment process, and we maintain the highest levels of confidentiality.

When your business is a boutique, which focusses on delivering exceptional client service the cultural fit of candidates is paramount. For a recruitment partner to deliver on this they need to have a thorough and deep understanding of, and empathy with, their clients’ business and management.

Simon and the team at Fram go out of their way to deliver on this and succeed.

What was Fram?

Fram was the strongest wooden ship ever built and was used by the revered Norwegian explorers Fridtjof Nansen and Roald Amundsen for their polar expeditions.

Just as with our name-sake, we believe pioneering thought, attention to detail, and a robust but flexible culture are qualities to aspire to. It also happens to be an abbreviation of our founder’s alma mater.

Victory awaits him who has everything in order – luck, people call it.

Defeat is certain for him who has neglected to take the necessary precautions in time; this is called bad luck.
