Case studies & testimonials:
Leading Asset Manager with alternative funds
We were asked by another division of an existing client to assist them with a senior level institutional sales hire. Fram has worked with the client’s retail division for many years, helping them hire sales professionals across the UK, and we were referred to the institutional team.
The team had met some good candidates, but no one with quite the right skills and network for their build out. We weren’t retained and were of course already playing catch up as the client had started the process.
Fram operates a team structure to give clients access to all of our knowledge, allowing us to offer our client a high level of functional expertise. The sales and marketing team led the search and worked across all candidate attraction channels to generate a strong shortlist. A large part of this was approaching passive candidates and headhunting and networking. We shortlisted a number of people within two weeks. Two of our candidates were selected for final interview stage and one was placed.
Fram's contingent success rate is nearly three times the industry average -
here are some reasons why:
We use a robust process, which includes using headhunting techniques on all assignments
Our multi-functional practices are staffed by specialists with deep understanding of your market and function
We screen all our candidates, and will not waste your time with irrelevant CVs. We understand that your time is precious.
Strong networks and a comprehensive database, including passive talent. We don't buy data or use CV databases
Uniquely, our consultants are not set up to compete, but work together to provide the best possible services for our clients
