Established in 2010, Fram Search is a specialist financial services and legal recruitment company, offering clients a professional and knowledgeable service across the UK. We focus on permanent and interim recruitment at all levels of experience and our clients include: Asset Managers, Private Equity firms, Private Client Investment Managers, Family Offices, Private Banks, Financial Advisers, Insurers, Banks, FinTechs and the legal sector.

Our clear industry focus enables us to provide clients with greater insight into market trends, and access to the best talent. Fram also has a strong track record of identifying, selecting and managing team moves, which has helped our clients increase their revenues in a lower growth environment. Whilst we charge on a contingent basis, our origins are in search and whilst we utilise contingent recruitment techniques, we are also able to pro-actively approach candidates from firms whom we don’t work with. In a world where candidates are busy and don’t always respond to advertising, this offers clients a more targeted and efficient approach to their recruitment needs.

We are very proud of the long standing relationships we have built with both clients and candidates. We strive to offer best advice to both parties, and maintain the highest levels of confidentiality.

Who are Fram?

What was Fram?

Fram Search - Amundsen NansenFram 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 back luck.From 'the South Pole' by Roald Amundsen
