Fram Search regularly contributes quotes and insights to articles and features online and in print. Here are some of our recent features.
MD Simon Roderick was quoted in this feature on remote hiring: “remote hiring favours a certain type of candidate. ‘Sometimes, it favours extroverts with good “TV presenter” skills over those who are just good at their job.’” He went on to say that it can also “be very efficient. ‘It requires less of a time commitment, but the results are similar. Candidates are available throughout the day rather than the usual before and after work slots, and firms seem to find it easier to get a panel of interviewers together at short notice. You get a great feel for people on a video call.’”

Recruiters find ways to maintain staff morale at home
Recruiter, March 2020
Lockdown had just been imposed, but we had already had time to miss our colleagues when Simon was asked for his thoughts for this feature at the Recruiter: “Simon Roderick, managing director at financial and legal recruiter Fram Search, told Recruiter: “We are total tea lovers and so the most fun thing is to have a virtual tea together. It’s only been a few days and we’re missing the fun we have together normally. Maybe this dreadful situation makes us appreciate our colleagues more.””
Fram was one of the firms featured in this article on key business lessons, as shared by business owners who successfully managed their response to the pandemic.
This article focused on the key takeaways managers need to know when running a business, as well as how other small UK businesses have responded to this financial update. Fram Search was one of the businesses featured.
A pre-lockdown article, MD Simon’s advice transfers to online meetings too: “It’s often said that the way someone treats waiting staff is a clear indication of what they are really like. “Say hello to people in lifts, and talk to reception, who are normally a good source of gossip. Be positive in your comments (at least to start with!) and don’t isolate yourself,” says Simon Roderick, managing director of Fram Search recruitment.”
Recruiting the Recruiters
NatWest, updated July 2020
Originally written before lockdown, this feature looked at the recruitment industry’s battle for talent. Recruitment is a great career, as Simon pointed out: “Recruitment offers the opportunity to build a long-term career and chances to advance relatively quickly into senior positions. Firms could do a lot more to highlight this aspect.” He went on to say that “Earning potential is a key part of the attraction for most candidates, but recruitment also offers the opportunity to build a long-term career and chances to advance relatively quickly into senior positions. Firms could do a lot more to highlight this aspect.”
